“Rustic & Relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

As all the hotels were full, we were delighted to find this pleasant accommodation after driving out of the town. It is unique, with its rustic style and decorations (stuffed bear, wolverine, etc.) and natural surroundings. Although the receptionist could not give us a discount on the steep "conference room rate", he upgraded us to a suite with en suite sauna.

Breakfast was acceptable, and buffet dinner at the restaurant was satisfactory, at a reasonable price. Parking facility on the premises.

We stayed at the Nordkalotten hotel for a week of leisure in Lulea - the hotel has reflected its rural surroundings in its decor which may not be to the tastes of everyone. The amenities offered are quite basic and the rooms are somewhat dated and simple and don't offer tea or coffee facilities.

The breakfast on offer was simple but not a bad way to start the day in the frigid surroundings. The hotel is a decent stopover point if you're going to Lulea to enjoy some of the many outdoor activities.

This hotel is mainly used for business as its only 3kms from the airport. If you want to get into town you have to get a cab or catch one of the few buses. The rooms are good and the service is great, they're very helpful. Breakfast is good too.

Very close to the Lulea AirPort, only 3 km.
Well decorated restaurant but it is really dark.
Rooms are average, and old.
Prices are not realistic for Lulea
Staff is good and helpful
Not suitable for families, you may choose for business

Dont get me wrong, you can stay here but it does feel alittle worn out or cheap. Actually did a 180 on location and went into city. It comes down to business or pleasure. Pleasure? No, you are looking for something in the central area.

This is a quirky hotel. It's features natural wood decor, which makes it very special but also dark and gloomy - I found it rather depressing after 2 days. As someone already mentioned, there are various stuffed animals on display. Rooms are ok but strangely designed. My room consisted of a large main room with a big desk and a 10-seat sofa (maybe 8-seat but it seemed huge), and another room with 3 narrow single beds and no window. Bathroom was big but impractical - plenty of floor space but nothing to put toiletries on, and a very small shower cabin. There was a sauna in my bathroom as well, that was ok.

Hotel has a large restaurant with rather weird breakfast selection (inlcuding probably the worst scrambled eggs I've ever had) and poor dinner selection, a swimming pool with water at 16 degrees, a large sauna (haven't visited but my colleagues said it was good), a pool table and darts board, and ski equipment and outdoor clothes rental.

The hotel is big (170+ rooms I think) and has a large conference centre so it seems to be a popular corporate offsite destination. When I was there, on Thursday and Friday it was completely packed but on Saturday and Sunday it was deserted. It's located near the airport but quite a distance from the centre of Lulea so it's more convenient if you're by car - taxi's ok but buses run very rarely and shouldn't be relied upon.

If your aim is to see the centre of Lulea and you don't have a car, I would recommend something in the centre. But if you're looking for a whole Nordic experience, including saunas, Nordic skiing, snowmobiles etc., then this hotel is a good choice as it provides a lot of extra services for people doing outdoor sports. Personally, I will probably choose
some other place next time I'm in Lulea.

Stayed here the night before catching a flight from Lulea airport. Had an average dinner here though it was all you can eat which we appreciated! Also enjoyed the sauna and pool. The room itself was basic but adequate though the bathroom was a bit cramped and I was scared of flooding the place with the shower! You can catch a bus from right outside the hotel directly to the airport which takes only a few minutes. Staff were friendly and helpful. Unique decor in the form of numerous stuffed animals which may not be to everyone's taste but gave the place a quirky edge!
