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

My partner and I stayed here in January 2013. This hotel is full of charm and the people working here are lovely and accommadting, but you have to be quick because it books out fast. Although not in the middle of town, if you don't mind walking you can get everywhere by foot, it is close to the train station.... More

Vinterpalatset offers clean rooms and bathrooms, soft but comfortable beds and a correct breakfast buffet. Well frequented by business guests due to the closeness of the LKAB iron ore mine. The fact that we met other Belgian guests so far away from our country made the stay even more pleasant.

A little out of the way. You definitely need a car to get to restaurants and shopping in the middle of town. Faces the steel mines, if that sort of think bothers you. I found it perfectly ok. After several nights of redundant corporate types of hotels, this was positively a treat. It is an old house (?) divided up... More

Great service, impeccable cleanliness and nice rooms. The breakfast buffet was not that big, but contained a nice selection of local specialities. But hurry up if you want to stay here, this hotel won't be standing in five years, when the city of Kiruna is moved due to the expansion of the mine.

A quaint Scandinavian style hotel in a fairly convenient location. The rooms are furnished and decorated in an attractive and tasteful Scandinavian way, and are on the small side (at least ours was), but an OK size and not cramped. The cleanliness in general was good, but our room was overdue a more thorough clean, as there were layers of... More
