Hotel Laponia
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Arvidsjaur
Reviewed 4 August 2010

When we were in Arvidsjaur it was pretty warm. It was also mosquito season. This hotel, like most in Sweden, had no screens on the windows. Your choice was to be hot or bitten. We chose hot. With no moving air, it was fairly miserable.
The weather was no fault of the hotel, which was a pretty standard hotel that seemed to cater to large bus loads of tourists. We were quite thankful that we were checked in already when a bus full of people lined up at the desk to check in.
Our room was not large but European rooms rarely are. It was modern, clean, and well maintained. The free WiFi worked well and it was nice to have the hot water pot available. Dinner was being served in the Sami hut annex on the lake across the street. The view and service were lovely but the food quality was uneven. Some parts of the meal were excellent while others were mediocre. Breakfast, served in the main building, was an excellent buffet but because of those aforementioned tour buses it was very crowded. It wasn't easy to find a table and the line to get bread was quite long.

Nice and clean hotel. Waterboiler and a couple of tea-bags on the room which is always appreciated. Decent breakfast with all you could expect including omelett and sausages. The drawback was only that I got a room facing the street behind the hotel so no view for me and also, I had left the window open so the garbage truck woke me up at 5 in the morning.

My husband and I attended a conference at the Laponia Hotel for four nights in late February 2009, and very much enjoyed our stay. In the post-Christmas period the hotel caters for a mix of conferences and winter sports enthusiasts - they organise snowmobile safaris, dog sledge excursions, ice fishing etc. for guests. The hotel can provide warm, waterproof outdoor clothing and boots for these activities. They also supply circular tin "trays" for impromptu tobogganing!

Many guests are German speakers and all the hotel information is available in Swedish, German and English.

The Laponia hotel staff we met were all, without exception, superb - helpful, efficient and charming throughout our stay.

It's not a 5-star hotel and our room was comfortable but functional rather than luxurious. However everything was spotlessly clean, the bathroom was good, and it was nice to have tea/coffee facilities in the room, something that's not so common on mainland Europe. There was free, reliable high-speed internet access via an Ethernet connection (not wifi in the bedrooms). The insulation and heating worked well but it was also possible to open the window so we didn't overheat.

The conference facilities were excellent and well maintained. The swimming pool was undergoing refurbishment during our stay, but the spa area was open and a colleague who had a massage there was very complimentary about the experience.

The breakfast buffet catered very well for all tastes - fresh fruit, cereals, yogurts, cheeses, cold meats, salad stuff, eggs, breads, crispbreads, juices and hot drinks. The conference food at other mealtimes was also good. As vegetarians we fared well even though vegetarianism is certainly not a tradition in Lapland, and we really appreciated the provision that was made for us and other veggie delegates.

Overall we would certainly recommend the Laponia Hotel for conferences or for independent visitors to Arvidsjaur.

We booked a santa lapland trip through Artic Discovery who use this hotel.
Hotel it self is lovely, pool very nice and staff very help ful, actually more than helpful. one evening we were swimming in the pool and a member of staff asked if we want some water, she then went away and came back with some glassed and a jug of water,(which was no charge). which i thought was nice as thats never happened before.
the buffet food is limited, but there is a a la carte menu too if you want something else.
overall i would stay here again.
