We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Our room was small and the bath was very small. But both had the essentials and were clean so we were fine. We had hot water! The beds were a little soft for our liking and the pillows had lost their "life" but we...

If you have a chance to visit Illulissat in Greenland, stay at Hotel Arctic. It has a stunning view of Disko Bay, a close encounter with Sledge Dogs owned by Hotel manager, and a great seafood restaurant.

We enjoyed an extensive buffet of Greenlandic foods during a brief stop here, as part of a National Geographic/Lindblad expedition. The food was very tasty and typical of the region, e.g., air dried Musk Ox and halibut sashimi. The views from the hotel dining room are beautiful as well. Note that we did NOT sleep at the hotel; we just...

We have traveled from one end of the Earth to the other, but the level of comfort and service at the Arctic Hotel, perched above Ilulissat on Disko Bay, impressed even us. The help began long before our arrival, with good advice from reception on just what accommodations we would most enjoy. As a result, we booked a corner Umiaq...

Amazingly situated hotel just outside the small town of Ilulissat (pop. 4,500). Many rooms and the dining room look out over the bay where floating icebergs are the order of the day. Bedroom comfortable and clean. Breakfast great - lots of choice and constantly topped up. 1 'star' dropped for dining experience. Service quite stuffy and dishes trying too hard...

This is a charming hotel right on the icefjord and likely the best Ilulissat has to offer. Would not be 4 stars in other locations but certainly would qualify here. The good: convenient airport pick up and an hourly shuttle to and from the town center although it is only a 15 min walk with a gorgeous view of the...

We have to keep our expectations in check when we're in Greenland. Not a super-luxury place, but clean, with a wonderful deck with deck chairs and blankets. Nice bar. Restaurant for dinner and breakfast has great views of the water and over to the ice fjord. This hotel is on the other side of town from the ice fjord, so...
