Have stayed here before and it is a good hotel and good value. Stayed in Annex this time which was a good place except impossible to safely get to breakfast! Ice was thick and slippy. Fell over a couple of times. Room was very cold first night and not easy to control temperature till I found controls next morning. Breakfast... More

Nice, clean and friendly staff. However, I am a motorcyclist traveling alone and enjoy having a meal on the premises as I travel enough in a day without having to walk into town for a meal. When I asked at reception what time the restaurant opens, as stated on their website, she kindly tells me there are no meals during... More

Hotel Vinterpalatset is not a "palace", despite the name. But it is a very nice hotel with good service an clean, comfortabel rooms. Located a few minutes walk from the town center. Breakfast is is like beeing in a private home. Good sleep quality with no noise from traffic. Safe and free parking outside. Kiruna is a very special place.... More

My wife and I stay at Vinterpalatset just before Midsummer. The hotel is very quiet with a good breakfast and with an evening meal which is well worth its price. The rooms are nicely furnished and the hotel is only ten minutes walk from the city center. There is a nice view from the lounge equipped with a small bar... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at Vinterpalatset. The place was clean and warm. Breakfast was ample and well presented. The room was simply but adequately furnished and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel seemed to have recently (2014) been very nicely re-decorated. It was peasantly quiet.

Small, simple, clean property that serves an excellent breakfast. Limited, but delicious dinner menu is also available. Manager will prepare a cocktail upon request. Short 6 - 8 minute walk to town. Several guests were returned visitors to the hotel. Stayed on the 2nd floor, just be aware there is no elevator or help with baggage.

friend and helpful personnel. clean and warm with good location. wifi works. all at a decent price (for Sweden). only let down was the breakfast - not for the quality of the food which was alright but the lack of cleaning up the tables and being around for filling up on the buffet

Always feeling welcome at this comfortable small hotel in central Kiruna. Friendly helpful staff, excellent breakfast and snacks. Keep on returning and always feel just right at home. Prices are high, but that goes for all hotels in area as the local economy is booming.

This hotel is small and simple, the rooms are good, the bathrooms basic but adequate and the breakfast good enough ( no cooked options) . Staff are friendly and helpful and it is about a five min. Walk to the town centre. We went to seek out the northern lights and take some other tours. Kiruna itself does not have... More

We stopped into Hotell Vinterpalatset in the morning and reserved two rooms for that night. The woman at the front desk was courteous and extremely helpful, answering our many questions. The individual rooms are a bit different, but all feel comfortable and cozy. They are clean, spacious rooms with decor that make the rooms feel like guest rooms in someone's... More
