Hotel Laponia
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Arvidsjaur
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I visited Arvidsjaur through Audi's Ice Experience program which includes an all expense paid trip to Arvidsjaur Sweden to drive Audi's four wheel drive sports cars. It was a fantastic trip and I could not have asked for anything more. But since my trip was all paid for I insisted on knowing the costs and quality of staying in a hotel if I came through my own expenses.

As far as the sights go I went in February which meant everything around was knee deep in snow. And by no means is that a bad thing. It was beautiful to see so much snow all around you from the comfort of your heated room. The rooms are good and have sufficient heating. Room service is an option which can be availed by paying extra charge. Which I ask to avoid since a walk every now and then would be advisable. Especially in Feb since you cant really step out so much because its a freezing -10 in the day and -20 in the night. And to me that is absolutely crazy because I am from India. Nearby attractions include a snowmobile ride experience from Polaris which is fantastic and absolutely recommended even for novice riders and do visit nearby restaurants which offer dishes which vary from Salmon to Elk.

Whichever your taste.

Oh and if you are not from Europe please request simple drinking water from the reception because you will be handed a bottle of soda unless you make it absolutely clear.

I recomand also the winter season when you can combine swedish hospitality with ice driving experience.
Best location in Sweden.
The rooms are clean, the food is fantastic, and do please check the local specialities.

We had a reservation for a family room and for a special Easter rate. We got a room in the new section. A very nice room tha even had a small pentry and a balcony. Wifi worked perfect.
We enjoyed a very good breakfast every morning. Our daughter and her cousins loved the pool. Overall a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new section or for a room close to the reception.

Two men and two dogs arrived at Laponia Hotel in Arvidsjaur by car a dark and cold january night. The hotel is located at the Route 45 so access by car is easy. Parking is free and close to the entrance of the hotel. The staff was professional and the reception area was very nice and decorated with different types of sami arts and of course a stuffed reindeer and a little "souvenir like" shop. Our room was not what I would call spacious, but it was clean, The furniture kept a plain standard and the beds were good. The room in itself was probably quite recently redecorated, Bathroom was small but OK. No toiletries part from dispenser soap. Breakfast was good (buffet). There were no problems with bringing dogs as long as the hotel was informed about this in advance.
To conclude: The hotel is OK but quite expensive.

My wife and I stayed one night in a 'Laponia Suite' which is a spacious double room with toilet, shower, two twin beds, a sofa group, a kitchenette and a small balcony. The room was clean and the beds were good. The free WiFi worked well in our room.
Unfortunately there were no mosquito net in the window, so we chose to keep it shut even if the temperature was quite high. And with no ventilation or A/C we were a little 'cooked' in the morning.
We ate an excellent dinner in the Sami hut annex across the street, by a small lake with a fountain in the middle. Breakfast was an exellent buffet served in the main building.
In my opinion Hotel Laponia is a good hotel, better than most in this part of Sweden. And Arvidsjaur is a nice place too.

Whilst the hotel is some distance from the station (we were travelling on the Inlandsbanen), it is in a pleasant location opposite a lake. Hotel was very quiet. We were given a very large room with plenty of comfortable seating and a very large bathroom. Venetian blinds on the many windows kept out most of the Arctic midnight sun.

Breakfast was comprehensive in a dining room overlooking the lake.

The hotel runs a luggage collection and delivery service to and from Arvidsjaur station. We used it when we departed the town. It would have been very good to have known about this service so we could have used it on arrival ! To be fair, however, perhaps I should have said we were arriving by train in the comment space on the booking.

Nice hotel in the small town of Arvisdjaur.

The location is great, just in front of the lake.

Hotel was good. Room was ok, we had enough place for two, the room was clean. I have tried the sauna, that was great, but have not tried the swimming pool, really to cold.

We had dinner at the restaurant, it was very good, despite the lack of choice on the menu (probably because we went during the low season).
