Amazingly situated hotel just outside of town. Spacious rooms with a stunning vista. Great food/buffet. Free Wi-Fi and very helpful staff. Shuttle bus transportation included as well. A stay here is highly recommended

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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
