As there was three adults travelling the travel agent booked us into a business room. What disappointment. The room was downstairs in the old part of the building, no air-conditioning and only one double bed with a small sofa bed. The room was so small there was no room for our luggage. The receptionist changed us into two standard rooms...

Services are quite good and the staff very nice and efficient. The room is simple but equipped with most amenities. Price is not...

We stayed here for only 2 nights, Nd very happy with the location. Easy to find some good places around to explore. Simple accommodation - although shower water was not so hot. Next time we will stay outside the town as some stunning places further out..

Pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the room on the 5th floor with a fabulous view of the Northern Lights Cathedral. Loved that the beds were set aside from the sitting area. Great breakfast spread. Excellent service, close attention & consideration from our Egyptian waiter (sorry we didn't catch his name) during dinner. V convenient location next to shopping mall...

Lovely hotel with all necessary facilities. Pleasant rooms. Staff at the reception not very friendly or helpful. The restaurant is quite small, but the helpful staff, we managed. Hotel is very central, and right next to the new, fantastic Northern Light Cathedral

Dirty and worn rooms. Carpeting with lots of dust both in the hallways and in the rooms. Service not exactly guests first. Restaurant is underwhelming and overpriced. Just one elevator in the newer part of the hotel. Best thing is breakfast selection and ground floor bar.
