My 20-something year old son and I spent MLK weekend 2016 in Ilulissat, which is on the western coast of Greenland. The hotel was well built, warm, and welcoming. English is readily spoken and understood, although we found this to be more true while in the hotel than once we left the grounds. Getting to Ilulissat took some doing. As... More

Most rooms have a great view. Hotel is a bit away from the city, but there is a free shuttle bus every hour. Break fast is ok but not amazing. The beds are quite nice and rooms are clean. I recommend the Arctic Burger and the Greenlandic buffet.

We had a family room in a quiet part of the hotel facing the bay/iceburgs. It was fantastic!! The staff was very helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean and the location can't be beat! We liked that the excursions we took picked up from the hotel lobby and the free shuttle to town was convenient. The breakfast was delicious... More

We flew forever to get to the Arctic hotel (130th country visited) and the location is beautiful, but the hotel is horrible. The staff are combative, not helpful, rude and lazy....shocking given the trek we took to get there. I would stay at a hostel over this place. Rooms are small, dirty and not worth a penny. Avoid this hotel.

Comfortable and clean rooms. Very nice and friendly staff. It is about 15 min walking distance from the Ilulissat town but there is a complimentary hotel shuttle that goes there on hourly basis. Hotel also provides airport transfers which are always helpful. Breakfast buffet offers many different food choices from delicious yogurts, cheeses, smoked fish to scrambled eggs and bacon.... More

The hotel is owned by the Greenland Airlines, and surprisingly very good for its location. It's 15 minutes walking from the city center, and they provided hourly shuttle services to the city center and airport.

We stayed there 3 nights last month. The room was small but clean and comfortable. There was no free WiFi. But there was a computer which could access to internet in the common area close to the reception. Guest could use it free. My son had an urgent email to reply and made a call via Skype by using this... More

The Hotel is very well located at the entrance of the bay to Ilulissat. The rooms are nice and great views. The restaurant, Ulo serves good breakfast and good select of dinners. The waiter Chris, from Denmark was fabulous as well. Never stopped. Internet is a problem there.

This is absolutely the best hotel in Ilulissat and should be clasified as a 5 star hotel. In spite of that the standard rooms are small they are comfortable and the view of the gigantic Icebergs are free of charge . The restaurant in the hotel is one of the best i ever tryed with na excelente servisse.
