We visited in Feb 2010 as part of a trip to the Arctic Circle, specifically to see the Northern Lights.
The hotel is located in the centre of Kiruna, next door to the Tourist Information office and across a car park from facilities such as the supermarket and town centre. The airport bus also dropped us off very close to the hotel so it really worked well.
Our rooms were nicely decorated and the beds comfy. The rooms were also warm despite it being close to -15c outside most of the time. Breakfast was plentiful - we liked the fact there were various cereal options, breads, meats and cheese and also a pancake & waffle maker.
We also made us of the free internet facilities in the "office" business area (we booked a hire car to drive to see the Icehotel and the Abisko national park - best place for viewing the Northern Lights. Kiruna is actually relatively built up and the Abisko national park provided a ski lift and took us up the mountain for the most amazing views of the lights).
