People there were nice enough. I rolled up for a single night, key was on the reception door, i let myself in, i let myself out. I ate the basic breakfast, which was bread, cheese, jam, cereal, juice and coffee, there was plenty to go round. Room and bed were clean, warm, spacious and had some cool pictures on the... More

The Polar Lodge is less than 200 feet from the front entrance of the Kangerlussuaq Airport terminal building... Accessible via an elevated wooden walkway through a small area of low bushes. Essentially a pre-fabricated structure with a gravel driveway, the building is nothing to look at from the exterior, but inside it is very clean and comfortable - with few... More

It was an easy five-minute walk from the terminal of the Kangerlussuaq Airport to the Polar Lodge, for which I was grateful because I saved taxi fare and felt a big tired. The small rooms there are quite basic: two twin beds pushed together, a small desk and chair, and two reading lamps. Guests use shared bathrooms. Breakfast is a... More

This lodge has more of a youth-hostel style. You only have rooms with shared bathrooms (app. 6 rooms to one bath). Rooms are basic and small, it was good that we could leave the window open in summer for some fresh air. Check out is latest at 9 am and you're supposed to remove sheets and pillowcases by yourself which... More

We stayed at the Polar Lodge before starting out on the Arctic Circle Trail hike. It was expensive but that is expected in Greenland so we were not surprised. There was 2 shared bathrooms on our floor and they were always clean. We made our own meals while we were there and there's plenty of kitchen supplies to use. Very... More

This is a hostel, but with private rooms, no dorms. It’s 2 minutes’ walk from the airport terminal – at the exit look to your left. The rooms are spartan but OK – clean, light, so-so bed, reading light. But the walls are very thin, and the plumbing makes noise all night, so you need earplugs. The bathrooms are shared,... More

I visited the polar lodge before my trip on the Arctic circle trail. The place looks well maintained and clean. It has a great location close to the airport. When you know Kangerlussuaq, you know there is not much to it. My bin was not emptied from the day before.

A clean hostel-like hotel. You can't do much better in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. Sufficient bathrooms and showers, and fortunately screens on some of the windows to keep the mosquitoes away. 200 yards from the airport, where there is an excellent cafeteria, and 200 yeard from a large supermarket. The breakfast though was boring.

The polar lodge is about one star hotel/hostel with small rooms and facilities (toilet and shower) shared between each 4-6 rooms. Room furnishing is quite spartan. My room had 2 single beds and an odour of dampness I was unable to get rid of by having window open for entire day. But then you have mosquitoes. It is apparent that... More

Polar lodge is right next to the airport and close to the shop. If you stay here when it's mosquito season that is a good thing. You also get a bus to take you into the centre of town next to the airport. The rooms are basic, beds comfortable and the place is clean. You have a net over the... More
