We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of December. The hotel staff were very friendly. The check in was quick and easy. The guy at reception was very helpful when we were booking trips - advising us which were not worth it at the time of year. The room was pleasant with two single beds, which we pushed together! They were extremely comfortable and warm. There were no tea and coffee facilities (this is standard we have found in many hotels abroad - we take our own mini kettle and teabags - not a hardship!) Breakfast was excellent - try the waffles with maple syrup - delicious! and how often do you get chocolate biscuits amongst a breakfast buffet - plenty there to warm us up before going out in the cold (there's healthy stuff like muesli and fruit too). The location of the hotel is excellent and within easy walking distance of the many shops and restaurants. We were told that if the northern lights made an appearance we should be able to see them from outside, but it was too cloudy while we were there to confirm this.
All in all it was an excellent place to stay and we would come back again no problem.
