Nuuk doesn't have many hotels. Two in fact, which are reviewed in Tripadvisor. Having tried both, we prefer the Seamen hotel, not because its a better hotel (which its not), but because its better on a value for money metric. It is a no frills experience, with comfortable enough rooms, functional enough bathrooms, good enough breakfast (with many locals as... More

Hotels are expensive in Greenland; this one also , maybe a bit less than others. Well located, in the Harbour, 15 minutes walk from downtown Nuuk; very clean, friendly staff, cafeteria in the hotel, breakfast is included (cereals, bread, eggs) . Basic accomodations but you will hopefully spend more time outside than in while visiting Greenland; fantastic view from rooms.... More

This is a clean and comfortable option near the harbour, about 10 minutes in a taxi from the Airport. Rooms are basic, warm and light. They have tv if you should be bored but how could you be in Greenland? Reception staff are helpful and friendly if a little shy. The canteen provides an excellent, good value breakfast and up...

The Seaman's Home is not a hotel, it's an upscale hostel. If you are looking for an authentic hotel for your stay in Greenland, check out Hans Egede in downtown Nuuk. There are a few good points about Seaman's Home; it's in a quiet area, not too far of a walk from downtown, and if you are lucky enough to... More

I stayed at the Seamen's home for four nights and was quite happy about the choice. The room was simple but clean and the staff friendly in a quiet way. Even in the weekend there was no disturbance at all. (Colleagues who stayed at Hans Egede complained about noise in the street almost every night.) The breakfast was all right,... More

Standard beetween very good youth hostel and 2-star-hotel, too expensive in comparison with "slightly" more expensive 4-star hotel Hans Egede, breakfast buffet not as good as described in well-known travel guide books.

I stayed here for five nights during a business trip in March 2011. Think more 'grown up youth hostel' than plush hotel and you'll be on the mark. The rooms are basic but clean and, more importantly, warm! They're big and have their own bathroom, good shower, TV & desk. I found it impossible to get a mobile signal there... More

Like a glorified youth hostel, quite nice place to visit and very quaint. Fairly old, beside docks, decent walk into town. Nice enough. Night staff were curt in the extreme, but not unhelpful. Probably more unique than the main hotel in Nuuk, but I think I'll stay at the other hotel next time (it's write in the 'town' centre) Great... More

Just stayed one night at this hostal, on a stop-over from Reykjavik to Ilulissat with late check-in and early check-out. Greenlands capital Nuuk is a rather soulless city (but cosmopolitan compared to the other 16 main cities), so as a tourist there is little to see in this city and most tourist fly directly to Ilulissat, where you can get...
