We stayed at the Hotel Diskobay for two nights during our Greenland adventure. The building seems very new. It sits in a beautiful spot overlooking the water--great for whale watching. They even have a bell on the outside deck to ring and alert others if you spot one!

We were picked up from the airport by a car the hotel uses. They made three trips to transport our group of nine with luggage to the hotel.

Our room was a beautifully spacious corner room with one window facing the oil tanks and one facing the water. The one facing the water did not have a shade, so full sun all 24 hours of the summer day. The free wifi works well in the lobby area but was weak in the room.

Dinner was quite good, but the service was so slow that we ended up leaving before dessert, as it had been over two hours and we were quite tired from the day. Breakfast was very limited: bread, cheese, ham, eggs and cereal. The coffee was good.

We were able to do laundry for only 60 DKK! A great price and much needed--thank you! We also appreciated that they let our group use a room to shower after we had checked out but then did hiking before our next transfer. Very considerate of them!

Hotel Diskobay is a good option while you are in Qasigiannguit.

This is one of the only hotels in Qasigiannguit so you don't have a choice of where to stay. I enjoyed my time there. The room is fine and the location is great for walking around town and seeing some icebergs. It reminded me of my dorm room but with a bathroom.

There is some really aggressive hiking around the town and mountain climbing. Go in June - early August for that. There are also a lot of sled dogs around the town and a fabulous museum run by the most lovely and passionate curators.

Like I've said in my other GL reviews, it is all about expectations. Qas is not on the typical tourist map. I only visited here with an "off the beaten path" tour. You can't expect a western 4 star establishment out here. It is great for what it is though.

This Hotel sits on a promontory overlooking a Bay which at high tide produces epic experiences with Humpback and Fin Whales. We were amazed when five Humpbacks produced a bubble curtain and came up and gaping as they took in their feed. The Hotel has about fifteen rooms - Rooms 11 and 14 are really the best for looking out at any time, but their is a large dining area and also outside balcony. The dinners are enormous - Halibut one day, Reindeer the next; beer is available and a few wines as well. No starters or desserts in sight, but coffee whenever you want. It's a bit quirky - we arrived early when they changed the local ferry times, to find the Hotel locked - but with a phone call we were soon in and welcomed. It's really friendly and feels almost family. Good maps, books, and pamphlets available to read while you are there. This Hotel is one on its own, lovely place. We left to a Humpback breaching - how about that for a finale!

Room tip: Rooms 11 and 14 the best. Be prepared to be flexible and relaxed - this Hotel is one on its own!

The Hotel Disko Bay is small and simple, but comfortable and well appointed. The rooms are of a reasonable size with some space to unpack and store stuff, and they have en-suite bathrooms. However the beds are narrow. The dining room does excellent breakfast and lunch buffets, and a dish of the day in the evening, all of which were excellent. You have to pre-book meals. They also provided early dinner when we and another party were leaving on the ferry just when we would normally have liked to eat. There's complimentary tea and coffee all day. The views are very fine, often including passing icebergs and pods of whales.

Room tip: Upstairs rooms have better views

It’s the only place in town but a nice hotel with a magnificent view. A massive iceberg sits in the bay right next to the hotel and whales pass by regularly. The staff are lovely and the food is excellent including careful provision for gluten free. The hotel is a great base for a range of excursions/adventures. The town is an interesting place to visit in its own right. Contact Diskobay tours to see what they offer.
