We stayed at the Hotel Arctic a total of 3 nights. Very comfortable, fairly large rooms that could take our baggage too, coffee/tea in the room, and...what a view ! ( We had a superior plus room) To sit in your room and watch the icebergs floating by was almost surreal. A small walkway outside to just stand and gaze... More

Standard rooms are nice, however slightly small if occupied by two. Quiet surroundings, nice fascilities. Wonderful upscale restaurant and ditto upscale cafe (fair prices). Needless to say, choose this hotel for the stunning view of the icefiord from all rooms.

We loved our stay here and it's a top choice for the area with all the amenities. We enjoyed a seaside view of the icebergs from our room. The place has two restaurants. The upstairs bar/cafe has more selections and vegetarian options. If you want a burger or something casual and less expensive for dinner, it's a good choice. Breakfast... More

Had a fantastic stay during our roundtrip in Greenland. We have several arrivals at the hotel and every time it was a good experience. I have a daughter with food allergy, and the kitchen did everything to avoid this by making special plates, desserts and breakfast for her. It was a good experience and the food was great. The view... More

The hotel has a great location in Illulisat over the fjord and the food was great. A big thanks to the staff in the restaurant for making all the request for different adaptation for us of different food types needed. :)

Beautiful hotel, friendly people located on a hill on the outskirts of the "city". A 20 minute walk or a shuttle will take you into town. Their main restaurant featured a barbecue on Sunday and a cuisine of Greenland on Monday. In addition to the many seafood specialties. they included whale, reindeer and many varieties of dried fish. The café... More

Mine is a reiteration of some other opinions here: no, it’s not really a 4-star but maybe 3½; yes, it’s very overpriced but Greenland is. The view is what most of us have come for, and it delivers: it’s amazing to sit looking out of your window at icebergs; with the weather and light changing all the time, plus regular... More

Ok now I cannot speak for the hotel proper as I stayed in one of the Igloos. Mind you when I booked the room through a booking website I thought it was an all igloo hotel, like those all bungalow places they have in some locales. It wasn't until I arrived that I found I was in one of but... More

We stayed here twice, checking out to spend a night at Eqi lodge. No problem looking after our bags. Piusi (standard) room very well designed and compact. On our return we were upgraded to a junior suite. Excellent room, twice the size of the other and with comfortable sofa. Food was excellent, half board provided good fixed menu but a... More

We showed up at the Hotel Arctic at 10pm without a reservation because we were desperate to leave our other awful hotel down the street. Aqqalu at the front desk saved the day for us. He sorted out a room quickly and arranged to have someone pick up our luggage from the ‘other’ hotel. He put us in room 408... More
