This newly opened hotel commands a prime location, situated in the centre of Lulea and at the gateway to the Swedish Lapland. Lulea Central Station is located 1km from the hotel and Lulea Airport 10 minutes by car transfer.
The exceedingly contemporary rooms at the Clarion Sense, with their colourfully modern murals, bold furniture, comfortable beds and lovely large windows that create an airy atmosphere. The design of each floor is inspired by the four seasons of the year, with art and lighting and colour schemes carrying the theme through to create a charming atmosphere.
Chef Marcus Samuelsson is in charge of culinary affairs at the Clarion Sense. An intriguing figure, who has received widespread critical acclaim and cooked state banquets for Barack Obama, serves up an inspired menu. His restaurant, Kitchen & Table, transforms the freshest Atlantic ingredients into cosmopolitan Manhattan-inspired dishes. The Lobby Bar is a great place for a stylish cocktail or two; the hearty breakfasts included in the room rate will take care of any indulgence the night before.
Closer to home, the town’s pubs and bars provide a selection of warm and sociable spots to meet the friendly locals, and, should you be loath to stray further than the hotel’s front door, the state-of-the-art spa should offer ample temptation. Unlike other hotels in the region, the Clarion is located not in the wilderness but in the centre of town, but the exciting range of winter excursions offered in the Luleå region can easily be arranged.
Stay here on these holidays
Stay at two of Scandinavia's quirkiest and most celebrated hotels – Treehotel and ICEHOTEL – during this memorable five-night winter break in Swedish Lapland.
Set just outside the small village of Harads, Treehotel is a high-design, back-to-nature retreat where guests can slow down, switch off and breathe more deeply. With the help of some visionary architects, owners Britta and Kent Lindvall have created a slice of magic.
