    I have stayed here twice - first in 2011, and most recently last week. Both times, I really enjoyed this hotel. It's super convenient and close to the airport. It's always been clean and comfortable, and the breakfast in the morning was really good :)

    Hello SabinaJan, Yes the Northern Lights are visible from the Hotel but also a short walk towards the river will get you a better view.

    I don´t think so. They barely have wi-fi (it´s pay to use). But then again, that´s part of the experience of being in the wilderness. Just my two cents.
