We got a good deal and booked a junior suite. It was perfect when travelling with children; we put them to bed in a separate room, and we could still have some time to our selves in the evening. The breakfast buffet was very nice and the staff polite. As the hotel is situated in

We stayed in a Superior King Room for 3 nights and the experience couldn’t have been better. The view from the room was glorious, with its large windows overlooking the sea, the mountains, and the Arctic Cathedral. The room was modern, spacious, and cosy, and we could hear no

We stayed in this hotel recently for 3 nights, it was amazing. Our room was very comfortable and ovelooked the harbour and town, lovely just to sit by the window and watch everything. The food was excellent, breakfasts had a huge choice of foods and the evening buffet was great.

hiya deciding whether to book transfers in. How much is a taxi from airport to hotel and would they fit 4 suitcases
We took the bus from the airport to the hotel. The bus is just as easy as the taxi and you can store plenty of suitcases in the storage area. It is like a big tour bus and goes to the hotel stopping at a couple other places in town. It’s easy to find in the airport and you can’t get lost. We never used taxis in the city, we used the public bus system to get around.

Without any sofa beds/extra beds, the master suites have 1 king size bed. Not possible to book connecting rooms, but of course you can have rooms close to each other.

Hi! Some of our junior suites have a sea view, and some of them have a city view. :-) What you will get depends on availability. If you want to be guaranteed sea view, you have to book either a superior room or a master suite.
