Billed as the most northerly four star hotel this place has fabulous views of iceberg littered Disco Bay. Our room was small but comfortable and the area was quiet. Reception was helpful and if you used the internet there it was free. The dining room was good. We had two evening meals and the staff were knowledgeable and provided excellent... More

Waking up and watching the icebergs float in the fjord, looking at the midnight sun from the terrace, tasting healthy local food from friendly staff, or conducting business in their conference area. Whatever your choice Hotel Arctic in Ilulissat will live up to it.

Hotel Arctic, Ilulissat is beautiful situated with a view over the town and the UNESCO World Heritage Site "the Ilulissat Ice Fiord". The room was spacious and had the comfort I expected of a 4 star hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good and the dinner excellent. I can recommend this hotel and a visit... More

This hotel has the best location to enjoy the UNESCO Ilulissat Ice Fjord. The rooms are very simple, Scandinavian/Ikea in style, and functional. The food is awesome - breakfast is full of surprises and the buffet dinner has some of the most interesting Greenlandic food to eat. The staff were so caring - my camera broke when I was there,...

I stayed at Hotel Arctic earlier this month. The rooms are well appointed and the service was very good. The staff was friendly and accommodated my request for feather-free pillows. The restaurants there were great in terms of food quality and the views. Also, their hourly shuttle service into town was great as well. It seems that most of the... More

The views from both inside and outside the rooms were beautiful. The staff were also outstanding. They made the effort to get for my frinds and I 3 kettles when we requested for them with no extra charges. In addition, the staff made the extra effort to help my friend locate his IPAD which was left in the Air Iceland... More

It has a very good restaurant. Try the freshly baked bread at the breakfast buffet. Be there by 5.45am to wait for the bread to come out from the oven. It will be tasty and fluffy! If you are there early, you can choose a good view to sit indoor and enjoy the iceberg view One have to pay for... More

Perhaps the best hotel in Illulissat as there wasn't much choice in this part of the world. Our room was facing a wonderful panorama view of icebergs. However, with almost 24 hours sunlight, our room on the 5th floor did not equip with heavy curtain to block the light; room was hot and stuffy during mid-day; we were unable to... More

This is a beautiful hotel with a spectacular view of the inlet and icebergs. The air is clear and fresh (the windows open) and the hotel staff, in all positions, are kind, welcoming and very helpful. I found the rooms particularly quiet. I attended a get together of about 10 people in another room and I wasn't sure I had... More

We had booked the superior igloo. Unfortunately, due to the weather, our booking could not be honoured. This was the experience that we had been looking forward to. Taking on board our disappointment, the manager agreed to let us stay in a suite complimentary on the hotel: going over and above what we expected. and the staff treated us like... More
