“Good place to stay but a little annoyed”
Reviewed 30 September 2008

I liked this hotel. It is in a quiet location just outside the town center. Rooms were comfortable and you can even cook your own meals or make coffee/tea in the kitchen. The lady who runs the hotel was friendly and helpful but I was a little put off when she tried to raise the room rate after I had arrived. She had verified my reservation at 400 krones just 3 weeks before by E-mail, then tried to raise the rate to 500 krones after I had arrived, saying that the rates had gone up in September. I argued and ended up paying 450 krones. It left a bad impression to an otherwise good experience.

We found this hotel through the Kiruna tourist office, as all other hotels were full (it was the Melodiefestivalen - or Eurovision heats in other words!) and the town was fully booked.

We were a bit dubious as the hotel only has 8 bedrooms and as it was the only hotel with availability in the whole of Kiruna we thought it must be pretty bad. However, it was wonderful! It is actually a museum with hotel rooms above it, and although quite basic the place was spotlessly clean, the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, and the bedroom itself was huge! There was a communal area with full cooking facilities, a dining table, comfy sofa, and 2 armchairs with a television. We found this a great place to relax in the evening with a glass of wine or two and a great opportunity to meet some fellow travellers from around the globe. A full continental breakfast is available in the morning in a separate breakfast room, and the food was totally adequate and contained the usual Swedish fare - cereals, yogurts, lots of different types of bread and crackers, sliced cheese, sliced meats, eggs, kaviar, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, fruit juices, etc. Wonderful!

It is only a 5-10 minute stroll into the city centre, depending on whether you need to walk fast to keep warm (it was freezing when we were there, minus 25C!!).

I can't recommend the hotel highly enough, very good value too!

  • Liked — The location, cleanliness, price, laid back atmosphere
  • Disliked — 2 single beds, not ideal for a married couple but it didn't really bother us.
