Ranked #1 of 1 Nuuk B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Hotel Nordbo was disappointing. Their so-called "bed" in my one person appartment was a sofa in fact, and they had not even prepared it, so I had to make in on my own. The linen looked like it had been used before. No problem in a hostel, but these folks are charging 850 DKK (115 EUR or 140 USD) per night. Internet is of course not included and costs 90 DKK (12 EUR, 15 USD) PER HOUR.

What is much worse is that the staff did not seem to be interested in their guests at all. I told them twice that my shower turned cold after half a minute, and they just did not do anything. So I had to take another cold shower the following morning. I asked them to change the address on the bill to my company´s name, and it took them more than 3 hours to do so.

If you really have to stay in this place, do not come too early in the morning, after 1600 in the afternoon or during the weekend because the reception will be closed. My advice is to stay in another place anyway. The hostel cannot be worse, but it will be considerably cheaper.

We loved the Nordbo's Saqqarliit location. Note that this is not their main apartment complex -- I have no idea what that one is like, although it shares the same friendly and helpful staff. The Saqqarliit apartments are about a 10 minute walk from downtown, but it's a really pleasant walk through a nice neighbourhood, with sea and mountain views along the way. The view from the deck is really nice, especially in summer when it never gets dark. We saw whales from our porch on several occasions during the week we were there.
The apartment has a fridge, stove, oven, TV, DVD player, stereo, satellite TV and a clothes washer. We had some trouble figuring out the remote controls (not all of which had batteries) and the phone (which may or may not actually work). You'll have to bring your own alarm clock, too.
The bedroom is small and a little bit dark, but you're probably going to spend most of your time out exploring Nuuk or else on the deck/in the living room, so it's not a big deal. I highly recommend this place and would love to go back.

Room Tip: For a great view, be sure to ask for the Saqqarliit location.
