    Hotel Hvide Falk

    Showing its age a little, this hotel doesn't offer nearly as much as the competition, and rooms on the first floor are in need of a makeover. Ask for a room on the new second floor, where modern design, flatscreen TVs and great views await you. The summer Greenlandic buffet (Monday and Thursday, Dkr198) is the real highlight at the hotel's restaurant, with a chance to sample polar bear, seal, muskox, caribou and local fish. On other nights the menu offers contemporary European cooking, and the Thai restaurant has a good range of excellent dishes (four courses Dkr189, mains Dkr85 to Dkr135).

    Hotel Arctic

    Well removed from traffic and noise, this swish hotel occupies an isolated promontory north of town with a view over the bay and icebergs. The stylish rooms are some of the best in Greenland, and there are even a few surreal aluminium iglos (Dkr150 extra) as annexe accommodation. There are also a sauna, a solarium and a small gym.
