We stepped off the train from Kiruna at Abisko Ostra and initially did not spot the sign for the mountain lodge. So we wandered around for 20 minutes trying to find it. In reality you can see it from the station, so I think a bigger sign is needed at the station to point you up the hill to the right, (don't head left towards the helipad!). There seems to be quite a bit of construction going on here at the moment on and around the rail track. The supermarket (which is a sweet lovers heaven, go there to understand what I mean!) is across the other side of the track from the Mountain lodge and sells all manner of things! Including hot chickens and Polar bread, yum!! :-) The menu at the lodge seemed nice enough but a bit expensive for us so we chose to eat in our room, snacks bought from the Shop. There is no TV, phone etc in the room, but is it beautifully clean but very basic. The hotel does believe it is a 'getaway from it all' including technology, however wifi is freely accessible in your room! It is a shame to pay so much for so little. Despite this, the trip to Abisko was relaxing. The breakfast was ok. Breakfast staff were friendly. We probably wouldn't return here, but may try one of the other rooms at the Turistation next time. One last thing, although I do not want to sound too negative, but the 'eco lights' in the bathroom which go on when you go in and then STAY ON for Ages after (not very eco friendly if you asked me! Especially when you need to pay a visit in the middle of the night and it illuminates the whole room for 15minutes even after you've left!!! Overall, bit expensive but it did the job of providing us with a warm room for a night while seeking out the elusive Aurora's! Oh the sauna is lovely, except it is split into separate rooms for male and female :-(
