The hotel is located in the lovely city of Kiruna, approximately 100 kilometer above the Arctic Circle. This is a pleasance, very clean & comfortable hotel. Nice breakfast menu. Located nearby city center where you can find almost everything within walking distance. If you are visiting Kiruna for the Northern Lights, then this is the place to stay.

The breakfast I had here is probably the worst I've ever had in Sweden. The choice was fine, if it had been there, but the staff did a terrible job refilling. More then half of the plates and casseroles were empty and no refill. The staff was one guy more interested of talking with the hotel staff eating their breakfast.... More

That's good and bad. At the end you know what you will get in an Scandic (same as when you visit a Mcdonalds :-) ) everything was clean and in place. Everything functional. Maybe room a bit smaller than in other scandics. Food for breakfast was very good (maybe dinning room was a bit too noisy) and we had a... More

The personnel of the hotel was very friendly. Hotel is old and there's no air-conditioning, so it was a little bit too warm for sleeping. Breakfast was good and very well organized. The menu of the restaurant was not so excellent. Winelist was short and some wines were not available.

I don't often review hotels, but just wanted to note I had a very pleasant stay at the Scandic Ferrum with a large breakfast spread, extremely convenient to the town, and great views overlooking the iron mine and mountains. The room was perfect for us.

Ok hotel, service (breakfast, restaurant and check-in/check-out) was poor: we didn't receive any information concerning kids in the hotel. Rooms ok, great view from the sauna+gym in the top floor! Good location in the city centre.

One night stay on the way to Norway. Service left some to be desired from check-in to check-out. The room was average with all the necessities, it had a view to the mine which was kind of unconventional and positively interesting. The breakfast was crowded to say the least and the service staff seemed to be significantly under dimensioned, the... More

This Scandic got to the the best hotel in town. Great view from many of the rooms overlooking the mine. Great sauna on the top floor. We enjoyed the breakfast, which had a great selection to most peoples taste. Furthermore I do like Scandic Hotels approach to recycling.
