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.

The hotel rooms are modern and friendly, although a tad on the small side. Everything was spotless. The amenities in the bathroom were a bit of a disappointment for a four star hotel - the shower gel and soap came out of dispensers, and there were no other toiletries other than tissues We had a room facing the Northern Lights...

A great breakfast with very good products, kind and polite maids, clean and very beautiful rooms and a central position. There is also a very good bar and an excellent restaurant! Probably the best hotel in town.
