Stayed here for three nights with the sole aim of seeing the northern lights - conditions were perfect and we saw them two out of three nights. The hotel is basic but comfortable - the food we had was of a good quality and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The gift shop is well stocked and cheaper than many other places. One negative is there is no facility for making hot drinks in your room. If you are here for a short time I would recommend it.
