We were here for one night on our way to Abisko. We had two rooms. The triple room was a little tight with the sofa bed out but ok for one night. We found the hotel very comfortable, the staff friendly and had an overall enjoyable stay. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful -- lots of fresh local organic foods. We...

We visited the Scandic Ferrum in Kiruna at Christmas and it was a very enjoyable visit. The food was delicious, especially the breakfast, and the location was conveniently central so you don't have to walk very far in the cold! The room was comfortable and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Kiruna.

It wasn't hour first option, but because we were traveling with a small dog they were the only nice ones to take our small dog without problems. They even had a sign on the door so in case of emergency they know that a small soul is inside and need rescuing because cant open the door. That was very nice...

Just right for a short transit stay on our way to the Lofoten islands. The room was small for 3 of us to squeeze into as we have 3 huge bags, having travelled from Malaysia. Breakfast was so-so. The grounds outside was interesting with a glass slide to play on. Did not see the aurora here that nite.

The rooms were adequate and acceptable for a short stay. However, the rooms did seem dated and need modernisation. The breakfasts though were very good and everything that most people require. Location is excellent and right in the heart of the town but still quiet. The views were good.

Almost as travel back in to the 70`s. The only differense today is that in the 70´s the hotel probobly was new. The breakfast is good but that´s all at this hotel. If you expect a modern hotel with fresh and clean rooms you will be disappointed.

Kiruna. There is not much competition in Kiruna (well, not that we saw), that said this is a good hotel. Apparently in about 8 years there will be a new town of Kiruna, so this hotel is not being maintained completely since it will be and the whole town will move to accommodate the moving mine. It was easy enough...

Easy access by bus, awesome breakfast, convenient rooms. Reception staff were not exactly super friendly, but service was reasonable. There is a small diner type place opposite the hotel close to the bus stop where service was absolutely terrible, so rather eat at the hotel or a different restaurant in the area.
