There is a small shop there (good stuff at reasonable prices) where you can also buy day trips and access to the internet. The kitchen is well equipped and clean (you have to bring everything - there was not even salt left there from others cooking). The lodge is a long wooden building and even if it is shared facilities,... More

I stayed in Polar Lodge for one night in early June. It is near the airport. It provides the basic breakfast, too. The staff was friendly but they only worked till 4pm. The room was small and clean. The services were very basic considering of the price I paid, $120 a night. Furthermore, I need to pay the wi-fi while... More

About 75m from the airport, which also function as a bar, hotel, hairdresser and hangout venue for the 10-14 age group this hostel is on the periphery of Kangerlussuaq, the main area of residents being a 20-25min walk away round the end of the runway. There seems to be something of a monopoly as regards accommodation in the area which... More

Right next to the tiniest international airport you are likely to see, this comfortable but very expensive hostel is pretty much the most convenient place to stay. There is a supermarket nearby, and a gift shop inside. There is an infrequent local bus that stops outside. Breakfast is served, the bathrooms are clean, there is a communal fridge, TV area,...

We stayed here for 2 nights as a part off our tour off Greenland. The lodge is basic, but when you are here you do not spent mich time in your room. The beds were clean, you can open your window. There is a small desk and a chair in the room also. The toilet and bathroom you have to... More

Hostel just beside the airport and across the street from the only supermarket. 17 newly renovated rooms, with basic interor and shared toilet and bathroom. OK breakfast with all the basic ingredients. Polar Lodge is starting point for all sightseeing tours. The town is boring, but great nature around the village. Wifi avaiable but a bit expensive. Kitchen available

People there were nice enough. I rolled up for a single night, key was on the reception door, i let myself in, i let myself out. I ate the basic breakfast, which was bread, cheese, jam, cereal, juice and coffee, there was plenty to go round. Room and bed were clean, warm, spacious and had some cool pictures on the... More

The Polar Lodge is less than 200 feet from the front entrance of the Kangerlussuaq Airport terminal building... Accessible via an elevated wooden walkway through a small area of low bushes. Essentially a pre-fabricated structure with a gravel driveway, the building is nothing to look at from the exterior, but inside it is very clean and comfortable - with few... More

It was an easy five-minute walk from the terminal of the Kangerlussuaq Airport to the Polar Lodge, for which I was grateful because I saved taxi fare and felt a big tired. The small rooms there are quite basic: two twin beds pushed together, a small desk and chair, and two reading lamps. Guests use shared bathrooms. Breakfast is a... More
