Great hotel in the centre of Kirkenes

Pros: Large room, good facilities, helpful staff.
Cons: Would have like to be told that you need to turn the sauna and steam room on.
Location: Museum is really interesting. We went on a trip to the Snow Hotel which was expensive but really interesting (and we were there on our own).
We stayed in this hotel for one night after a Hurtigruten cruise. We arrived early so the room wasn't ready but there is a large luggage room and we were offered free tea or coffee. We went off to explore the town and museum and then were able to check in. Our room was very comfortable with a bath. We were only there for one night but we used the pool and the sauna (there is also a steam room but they were turned off when we arrived so you need to remember to turn them on half an hour before you use them). Breakfast was very good - I like the Skandic DIY waffles and the welcome 'cocktail' was great!

Ideales Hotel vor resp nach einer Hurtigrut. Reise

Pros: Die gute Lage, der freundliche Service und vor allem das einmalige Frühstück. Sehr ausgewogen, frisch mit einer reichlichen Auswahl.
Location: Das legere Hotel an der Grenze zwischen Finnland und Russland liegt 5 Gehminuten vom Sowjetischen Befreiungsdenkmal entfernt
Das Hotel ist sehr zentral und ruhig gelegen. Ich verbrachte eine Nacht in diesem Hotel, bevor ich einschiffen musste. Vom Hotel aus, sind alles Sehenswürdigkeiten in unmittelbarere Nähe gut zu Fuss zu erreichen.
