We stayed here two nights and when we first arrived the room we were given had not been cleaned and it was at least around 9.30pm at night. The staff were very quick to give us a different room and a 50 kroner voucher for the bar. For the price we paid I would expect basic toiletries, of which there... More

First, I suggest that you ask for a room on the front of the hotel, where you have an interesting view over the mountains and the iron-ore mine. The hotel feels a little bit old. The beds are comfortable and the cleaning is acceptable. The buffet breakfast is very good The staff is very helpful and nice.

Old fashion hotel in Kiruna. Not much done since 70´s. Rooms pretty original, but what else expected if town will be moved away... due to mine. Restaurant surprised by local dish that was wonderful. Still - place for proper sleep if you travel in North Sweden.

Common areas have been renovated and are really stylishly designed. When we checked in the receptionist struggled with taking care of us, serve beer at the bar, answering the phone.Definitely could she have like assistance.Many guests come from a far country, and of course has lots of questions before excursions. Next to the entrance there is a little kiosk that... More

I was actually impressed by this hotel after staying here and comparing it to others in the area. It is a no frills, simple, clean and convenient hotel. Don't expect 4/5 star service, but you aren't paying 4/5 star prices either. In fact, after staying at the ICEHOTEL, I would have rather stayed here and simply visited the IH. Pros:... More

My son and I spent three nights in Kiruna chasing the Northern Lights and to visit the ICEHOTEL (see that review). The Scandic is an okay choice when in the area, not great, not horrible. LOCATION: The Scandic is close to the center of this small mining town. Kiruna is a small town, so any hotel would likely be relatively... More

Heard of different reviews. But have to be honest and say the staff and hotel far passed my expectations. Helpful staff, assisting with tour bookings etc. Would suggest keeping the fire burning at all times. Clean, comfortable rooms. Wouldn't hesitate recommending this establishment 👍

Difficult to know where to start. First the good bits, big room, reasonable condition, clean. Staff - what few there were - delightful. Only ever one person on bar or reception which meant often you waited so long you just gave up. Seemed complete confusion about what food was available when - apart from the 3 day old prawn and...

We were unfortunate to arrive on the Saturday which was Valentines night. We couldn't book dinner in the restaurant as it was full. There seemed to be very few staff especially in the bar. The coffee machine in reception emptied quickly and was not replenished. Breakfast the next morning was a bit if a scrum. The second night and breakfast... More
