Always ask for a room with a view towards the mountains (fjällen) because thats amazing and compared to the other nonview its just not comparable. The renovation of the lobby is a big plus and you shouldn't expect too much of the rooms. Breakfast is more than average. enjoy!

As one of the rising building in the middle of this quite and small place in the northern Sweden, this hotel is probably the best place to stay if you want to witness the glimmering sunset inside your room. It has an amazing view around, you could see almost everything from 8th floor. The food was good and the service... More

Very functional hotel. Rooms are pretty spartan and basic the restaurant has a buffet or a la carte. Breakfast is a good buffet. Staff very helpful and friendly. The renovated sauna is very nice with a great view. Location is extremely central.

"Historic" Ferrum it,s on it,s way. Smart lobby and restaurant design. Still some things to improve, bed linen, quilt and pillows still low class. Big plus for activity black board. Very warm rooms facing the LKAB mine. Properly only a problem a few weeks a year. Thank you for free WI FI and friendly reception.

First: the front desk staff was great and effective. The room was a bit dusty and it was a very hot day so it got hot because there is no air conditioning. Nice view to mine. The restaurant were I had dinner was nor good. But the breakfast was ok.

As we had room 228 we always heard doors smashing and the escalator going up and down. For 1400 SEK in a standard room this was just too much. Except that the hotel staff is friendly and there is a large breakfast buffet. Add: even if we could have another room as we noticed that the room is noisy, it... More

Hotel Ferrum is the largest place to stay in Kiruna. Maybe not cosy and personal but a good midrange hotel. Very friendly staff and nice room. Good breakfast. Don't forget too visit the sauna on the top floor with a view over the mine.

We stayed in this hotel on a trip where we visited the Ice Hotel. Great hotel and a great town. Free parking helped in the winter season and a great breakfast made all of us happy. We truly enjoyed the stay and hopefully we will visit again

We stayed here for the first night in Kiruna before hiking the Kungsleden. And it happened to be in the middle of the Kiruna festival which was fun as the hotel is on the festival grounds and we received access to the event as part of our stay (Status Quo were on the floor above us). The hotels was clean... More
