We booked our trip to Greenlad at the last minute, so the only choice left was Hotel Arctic. Several people who had travelled to Greenland before told us that Hotel Arctic was the best in Ilulissat, but we had nothing in Greenland to compare it. We stayed there on two occasions: 1 night upon arrival in Greenland and 6 nights... More

Amazing Views from the room and the dining areas, Roomy and neat room with good water pressure in shower! But room service staffs appear to be minimally trained (room cleaning is all right but do not expect extra). The dining staffs are better trained (they are very kind, but they do not appear to know what to do). Dishes are... More

Very nice and classy hotel/restaurant for Greenland.. Clearly the only place to be in Ilulisat ;) Restaurants are amazing: must try the mix Beef/Musc Ox Burger, the Artic Crab or Scallops salad. 2 points are a failed for me: Poor Wifi connection & location (a bit far from anything..)

By far the best of the 3 hotels we stayed at in Iluissat. For normal standards, I would give this a 3 star but I have to consider where this is. Big bonus point for the free internet, I was very happy they were not trying to get the last few krónas out of us. The rooms are fine, clean,... More

We stayed here on 2 separate occasions once for 3 nights and then for a further night later. This hotel has absolutely spectacular views out across the harbour and the passing icebergs. The staff are all smiling and friendly as well as being extremely helpful. There is free wi-fi but you have to log on each time you use it... More

Hotel Arctic was the most expensive place we stayed at in Greenland. But it was also the place where we by far got the best service, the only place with free wifi, the only place with 24 hour reception service, and really good breakfast. Also really a plus that the breakfast was available already from 5 AM since our ferry... More

Spectacular setting to go with the cost but truly 4 star with small bar and classy restaurant along with burgers and nachos place. Staff needs a bit of worldliness training but it's a tough location. Cool spaceship-like rooms are available bit I didn't see the inside.

There is a regular shuttle to the World of Greenland each hour so you don't have to walk the 20 minutes into town. The Ferdinand restaurant was well suited for kids. Good views from the rooms of the icebergs in the bay.

Highly recommend! It's probably the most expensive in town but it's well worth it! Free internet (all the other hotels / restaurants charge about $10 AUD an HOUR!! for internet!) free transfers from Airport and City (A taxi will set you back another $50) and the amazing view and beautiful restaurants to dine at!!! Trust me it's well worth to... More

Stayed here with a tour group. Most rooms have a Great view over the town and harbour with icebergs floating past. Hourly shuttle into town centre, but is also walkable. Two restaurants offer variety. Food was good. Comfortable modern clean rooms. Helpful staff.
