When we first stepped in, we got a shock of our lives. There is no hotel lobby at all. Everything is under construction. But the service was really good and everyone was friendly. The view from our window is the best! It's overlooking the pier and into the mountains. Love it so very much.
Location is also very good. A lot of tours pick up is near our hotel. Breakfast is good as well. There's a variety of choices to choose from.
On the second night, we were chilling by our room window, when we notice a group of people by the pier looking up into the sky and taking their cameras out.
Out of curiosity, we head down and we see the aurora just above our heads. It's really a beautiful sight, one that we won't forget. Ended up camping by the pier (which is just outside our hotel) with the cameras till late at night. Luckily for us, we don't have to walk too far for shelter from the cold.
Overall, we would come back again because of the beautiful view. Hopefully the renovations will be over by then.
