Hotel Arctic is the world's most northerly 4-star hotel, located to the north of the town of Ilulissat, Greenland, on the road to Ilulissat Airport.[1][2] It is located 2.7 km (1.7 mi) north of the mouth of Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main hotel building is located about 100 metres from the coast. Owned by Air Greenland, the hotel was built shortly after the airport was opened in 1984 to accommodate the passengers.[2]

Hotel Arctic has 76 rooms and 9 suites. In addition the hotel has 5 Aluminium "Igloos" built next to the coast and connected to the hotel by a 75 metre boardwalk. The hotel has the Restaurant Ulo which serves Greenlandic cuisine and Café Ferdinand.
