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

Stayed there for a night before heading to the Ice Hotel. Good place for someone traveling solo like me as they had a night club attached and it was a good place to get a beer and meet some people. Rooms were clean and they had a lookout tower on the top of the hotel that was pretty interesting. Gym... More

Well no secret that Kiruna is a mining town with a unique location. Not only does this hotel provide great Swedish hospitality, but the warmth of the Arctic. No matter what time of year you visit this hotel, you will always enjoy a unique experience. You will find the rooms comfortable and warm, well designed for the business traveler, great... More

Kiruna is a mining city where LKAB is the main employer. This has the good effect for Kiruna having good connection by air, rail and flight to Stockholm. Kiruna was the base to Tromsø and Altar. The hotel is an excellent example of a nice place to stay, so book early!

Parking is little tricky as they ask you to park on hill instead of hotel surroundings (not a bothering thing anyway :). I cannot think of any issue here. WiFi was good enough. We did not like the restaurant a lot.. Very close to all tours. It's economic. It has a fitness center too. We enjoyed the stay.

I've stayed here many times, especially during transit. It has nothing much to offer safe for the fact that it's right in the middle of Kiruna with the movie theater next door and a supermarket just two minutes walk...

So I arrived to Kiruna and accidently booked our hotel for a different city (my mistake). Luckily Scandic was able to save us from sleeping at the airport or the visitor center lobby. This hotel isn't the most glamorous of hotels, but it gets the job done. The rooms were clean, but not modern. I didn't have any trouble with... More

The hotel was perfectly ok with a small gym and nice sauna. Rooms were fine. But everything in Kiruna seems to close at weekends so there are very few places to eat, including the hotel restaurant which does not serve lunch. The hotel staff recommended the unattractive sandwiches near the front door. Not good !
