“No complaints at all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

We needed a hotel in Kiruna just for one night after flying in from Stockholm, then catching the train to Abisko the next day. Was travelling with my six year old son.

The Bishop’s Arms turned out to be an excellent choice. It’s centrally located and has a pub and restaurant on the ground floor. Our room was on the first floor and was clean, modern and very comfortable. In fact I would rate the bed a 9/10. We didn’t notice any noise from the pub below. We did have dinner in the pub and the food was excellent. Breakfast (a buffet), also served in the pub, was fine.

The building also houses a small shopping arcade which includes an H&M store – very convenient for stocking up on winter clothing. Also, the train station was within walking distance (less than one kilometer) which saved us having to catch a taxi on departure.

All in all a good choice and a reasonable price by Swedish standards. I found the best rate through Myhotelguru, but it’s always best to shop around.

we stayed 2 nights at this hotel in march 2012 we found staff to be very helpful and friendly even though we only arrived about 11-30pm. rooms were very clean and tidy with bath shower internet etc , breakfast was buffet style but not really too much choice and no recognisable cerials .overall a very pleasant stay, but our only gripe would be that there were no tea or coffee making facilities in our room .so come on bishops inn these days we should have this facility in our rooms. 9 out of 10 bishops inn. would have been 10s if i could have made myself some coffee as i am an early riser

Room Tip: nice hotel very clean and tidy only falldown for us was no tea or coffee making facilities in our ro...

Easy to find in middle of town. Attached to a pub but rooms are situated through the adjacent shopping mall, up one floor in a lift. Can't check in till pub opens at 4pm so that is the reason for only 4 rating. Lovely clean rooms with immaculate bathrooms and extremely comfortable beds. Buffet breakfast also good.Very quiet.

On one thing you must pay attention: reception is open after 16h, it's on bar's desk. Not good if your train or flights arrives early in the morning.
Breakfast is poor.
Rooms very nice.
Located in the center, about 10min uphill from the train station.

We travelled independently and stayed in Kiruna for one night beofre going on to Abisko by train.
You check in the hotel at the Bishops arms pub which is where they serve breakfast which is included in the price which we found to be very reasonable. We also had evening meal here which again we found to be very good.
Room was comfortable,warm and a great bathroom. The location is very good, near the tourist office, and the place we had booked for snow mobiling.

Kiruna itself is not pretty in itself and I probably wouldn't want to base a holiday here but it was fantastic stopover. A little tip, you can get the local bus number 501 to the ice hotel and look around the ice hotel from 10am-6pm, easy to combine a bus to here and a taxi back to airport if it is your last day and have an evening flight. Book the taxi in advance as they get busy from the tourist station.
