So, this is the only game in town if doing an overnight in Kangerlussuaq on your way to other locales in Greenland, but it is another reason to limit it to one night. The hotel is attached to the small terminal, which is unique in that you can walk into the terminal lobby in the evening from the hotel, even... More

Room is clean and comfortable enough. Food is pretty rubbish though. Not a great deal to see around here either. Town probably wouldn't exist without the airport. Much better places to see in Greenland.

The room was clean and very basic for the price. The view was directly at the airport. Everything was just okay for a transit hotel. If you are staying in Kangerlussuaq in more than 1 night I would prefer another hotel. The female receptionist was very rude at check-in, there was no welcome, she didn't answer questions and her appearance... More

I stayed here as part of a Greenland Travel tour for two nights. I really had been expecting the worst. But my experience exceeded my expectations! For sure, the hotel is ex-military. But, my room, on the 2nd floor was exceptionally clean, had a TV, plenty of room, and good, hot showers. My room overlooked the runway - excellent. There... More

Not knowing the geography of the small town/village, I chose to stay at this hotel despite previous reviews. Well, nothing has changed! Still pretty basic and still certainly not worth the price. Staff helpful but speak poor English. It took 5 e-mails to make a reservation and it still wasn't correct when I arrived. Yes its right at the airport,... More

I've been there for four nights this April for my Musk Ox photo safari. You are not supposed to spend your time in the room, so everything is essential. A clean room with a good bed to rest after the long day in the outdoor. Probably the Hotel needs some restoration, but nothing serious. The place is perfect for visiting... More

I normally write my hotel reviews with list of pros and cons, but I stopped because there are just way too many cons. This place is ridiculously expensive, the room feels very tired/dated with just a basic furnishing, and the only dining option is airport cafeteria downstairs. To top it off the internet connection was out during my entire stay,... More

If you are visiting Kangelussuaq it is likely that you are in transit to a destination in Greenland or heading back and this is the only reason to stop here. Oh and there is the annual Poalr Marathon which is what brought us to stay at the hotel. If you need a room for overnight transit then HK fit the... More

Don't be fooled by their web site, they don't deliver much of what they promise. The hotel is very basic, more hostel style. Staff hardly speaks english but most (not all) are friendly. Some days our room was made up, some days it wasn't. However, if you want to or have to stay in Kangerlussuaq and are prepared to pay... More

This hotel has 1 advantage, its situated in the airport terminal. a very dull airport terinal, not build for comfort. Reception is on the 1 floor where you will also find a small bar. from there there are kilometres of walking to get to your room incl stairs. For the price you pay at this hotel, too many things are... More
