We booked 2 rooms for a night,4 adults and 1 toddler. One of the rooms, we checked in, wasn't ready and so my sister needed to get another room. In the evening, we wanted to use the hotel facility. The sauna was out of order without any information. With this price we actually expected to use most of it. So...

This Hotel, like the whole town is being relocated and rebuilt which is just as well. Its a throwback to the hotels of the 70s. Staff are friendly but rooms , bar, decor is all dated. Rooms Clean but basic. View over mount Doom very uninspiring.

I arrived around 10pm on a Saturday night and the place was packed! The bar and live band are in the entry way so it was a bit overwhelming when I first walked in. The bar tender came over and checked me in. The party (and noise) carried on until the early morning hours, it wasn't too loud though. On...

We were in Kiruna for business for my husband. The hotel is very nice and the front desk is very helpful. Great tour office next door to get you to tours etc. Great location too. There is a nice breakfast buffet and a bar. Not a big hotel but very comfortable

This hotel is centrally located. Scandic Hotels vary substantially. This is an older Scandic. Rooms are basic, reasonably clean but walls are in need of a good paint. However, Kiruna as a city is being relocated, so I suppose Scandic too will have to go-into a new a building then. There is a good gym with nice views. Sauna is...

Enjoyed our trip to Kiruna and had a great stay at Scandic Ferrum. I would agree with another reviewer in the fact that the hotel needs a little updating on decorum. Otherwise I would have given it a 5 star review. The staff were great! Friendly and very accommodating and the breakfast was fantastic with a great selection and good...

I would definately recommend the Ferrum if you stay in Kiruna. But it gave me quite a feeling of Overlook Hotel; mountain style, empty (until the New Years Eve guests arrived), 80's style deco and colour combination and a bit out of date. I expected the two girls turn up at every corridor corner. In need of renovation? Yes, but...

I stayed at the Hotel Scandic Ferrum in Kiruna two non-consecutive nights (December 9 and 11) during my short trip to the northern lights hunting. The hotel is located in the main square of the city and everything is within easy walking distance (tourist office, train station, shops, pubs etc ...). The Hotel is a modern building of several floors...

A lot of folks I met out and about near Kiruna had opted for the Ice Hotel, which seemed to be part of a holiday package and around 10km from Kiruna. I chose to go my own way, staying at the Scandic Ferrum and felt it was a better option given its location. Kiruna is a small place and the...
