frankly, this place is way, way too pricey, at 785DK per night! as is the hotel in the airport (single 1350DK per night) (the reason for me staying in the hostel). as a comparative Nuuk cost me 400DK per night for a room in a super house, and in ilulissat I paid about 650DK for a fantastic studio on the...

785 DKK for a single room with no bathroom is an extortionate price by any measure, even for Greenland. This place other than the price is acceptable enough: basic breakfast included, clean rooms, single beds, shared bathrooms in the hall. Sound insulation is definitely an issue if it's busy. Location is convenient for the airport though: just a short walk... More

Polar Lodge, Kangerlussuaq The hotel is located only 100 meters from the terminal. The room was small and with common toilet and bathroom. There are not many options in Kangerlussuaq so for one night it is ok to get next days flight, but expensive. It was clean and the reception helpful.

My wife and returned recently from a three-night stay at ”Polar Lodge” in Kangerlussuaq (Søndre Strømfjord) in Western Greenland. It was our third visit to the area (but first stay at Polar Lodge). The purpose was simply to get more of the northern lights. Kangerlussuaq is sitting just north of the Polar Circle about 180 km inland from the sea.... More

Stayed in this hostel as part of a Greenland Travel holiday. The rooms were warm and comfy with twin beds pushed together for a double and a desk. Wifi is expensive at 50 danish kroner for 30 mins and the phone signal was poor. There were 2 showers and loos between 5 or so rooms. These could have been cleaner... More

This just suited our needs. It had comfortable, clean rooms and bathrooms, friendly staff, and the breakfast provided was basic but plenty of it. Supermarket not far away, and you can use the kitchen facilities.

As others have noted, this is a lodge/hostel/B&B-type of setting, not a real hotel as such. However, we found it to be excellent in terms of cleanliness, warmth, and very well looked after. Mind you, we stayed here for one night after camping on the tundra for three weeks, so we were also just happy to be back in civilization... More

Kangerlussuaq, althought not so exciting as Ilulissat, is a good introduction of the amazing Greenland. And Polar Lodge is a cosy, perfect place to spend some days. Unfortunately I was there from April 30th to May 2nd, so I didn't have the chance to see the northern lights. But I recommend highly the trip to the Ice Cap and the... More

Ok, so the five stars is based on the experience as well as the accommodation. As the other reviewers have said, this is a converted ex-US military base which is plonked in the middle of the wilderness. However, it is cosy, next to the airport and the supermarket, and surrounded by mountains for miles! I was with friends, but I... More
