“Unfriendly Seaman's Home”
The Seaman's Home is not a hotel, it's an upscale hostel. If you are looking for an authentic hotel for your stay in Greenland, check out Hans Egede in downtown Nuuk. There are a few good points about Seaman's Home; it's in a quiet area, not too far of a walk from downtown, and if you are lucky enough to get on a boat tour, they all leave from the port behind the hotel, err hostel. There are also some very negative points about Seaman's Home, though. Overall, the staff members are uninformed and unhelpful. When I asked a fluent English speaker who had lived in Nuuk for over 11 years about the bus system and how to get out to the airport for a hike, he told me to simply wait by the red building on the road that runs past Seaman's Home. That's fine, except nearly all the homes in Greenland are red! How about getting up and actually helping a solo traveler out? Furthermore, if you experience credit card problems while paying, the staff direct you to a bank and tell you to figure it out. Again, thanks for the help. Aside from that, the rooms at Seaman's Home are standard; absolutely no frills whatsoever, but fine for a few nights. If you DO end up staying at Seaman's Home, though, definitely don't stroll into Hotel Hans Egede even if it's just for a look around. It will make you wish you booked there and sucked up the extra cost instead.
