Despite it’s a bit out of town, the hotel offers shuttle bus to the town center almost every hour. Staff are quite helpful and experienced in northern lights. Breakfast is nice and we strongly recommend the snow crab for dinner. The hotel even provides flight check-in, and therefore, make sure you prepare enough time for checkout, as there is a long queue for checkout as well as flight checkin. It really takes time.
This hotel was an absolute joy to stay in. I've stayed in some five star hotels around the world and I didn't know what to expect upon arrival (I never trust travel website pictures). Architecturally and interior design wise this hotel is adequate but will not blow you away HOWEVER DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THAT!!! This hotel is everything you could want in terms or comfort, luxury, amenities, staff, food, beverage, location, view, etc, etc. I can't say enough good things about the staff...some of the friendliest people ever. The breakfast buffet is absolutely perfect, the views of the ocean from the property are spell binding, it's about 5 minutes from the airport...the list of good things goes on and on. The beds have these amazingly comfortable faux fur blankets that you will want to steal. The ONLY bad thing I have to say is the wifi is slow and unreliable but that seemed to be true of all wifi in Greenland except for Nuuk so I can't really hold it against them. If I were you and visiting Ilulissat I would absolutely recommend you stay here.
Love the room and the bathroom... great views too!
Some staff too busy to be attentive
The food overall was good. Breakfast plus buffet on Mondays which I was there for. The shuttle van had regular scheduled trips to the tourist center of town but also provided transport to other lodgings - I stayed a few days before moving to apartment & shuttle took me to an other check-in location as well as airport on arrival (along with passengers on same late night flight going to other hotels).
Good views. Good facilities. Good breakfast. Good restaurant- food is delicious but not expensive. Shuttle to town centre and airport is provided
Room is a little bit small. Also, it is better if the town shuttle service can be extended to 9:00 pm
