I've been there as part of a guided tour. I had a single room with a small single bad that was not very solid. The room was small. The wall beside the bed was blue with suspect stains. There was a step to enter the bathroom as the shower was limited only by a curtain and the water reached the... More

I stayed here last week on business for one night. Picked this hotel because I wanted to compare it with the other Scandic in town that I have visited just some months ago. The registration process took time because there was only one employer at the reception when I came and there was a line of 5 persons waiting before... More

I chose this Hotel because of the short distanse to the Hurtigruten quay. The room was clean, the bed reasonably comfortable and the room was adequate for my short stay. The breakfast was unimpressive but OK. i found the members of staff i met smiling and helpful. All in all not a bad hotel experience, but not a great one... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. If you get waterfront room you can enjoy watching ships pass by as you sit in your room. It's also very central so you just walk around to explore the area. Lots of restaurant choices and near to shopping & museums. We stayed 5 days and our "suite" was tight with... More

We found this hotel to be adequate. The staff did have some difficulty checking us in for some reason, but ultimately our room was available when we arrived. Staff was polite enough but not particularly helpful with navigation and recommendations. The hotel is centrally located - close to train station, airport and ferries. We walked from the train with no... More

There are two things I value when I am staying at a hotel; how clean the room is and how quiet the room is. Therefore I specified that I wanted a quiet room when I booked my room. This request was not taken into account at all as we where given a room facing a local disco. When I asked... More

Horrible hotel. Noisy, unfriendly staff and unclean. Breakfast was abysmal, with the cheapest possible food the hotel could dig up. Wifi signal did not reach our room, so there was no wifi. Clogged sink, windows did not open. This is not a hotel, almost not worthy of being called a hostel. A disgrace to the Rica hotel chain.

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting Bodø. The hotel is close to the railway station and about 5 minutes walk from the bus stop for the airport. It is on the main road through town and so the rooms at the front have traffic noise. There is also a nightclub across the road with outside tables so as... More

We arrived early evening, the lobby gave us,maybe a bit too much to hope for, but we were satisfied with the room. The bed was spacious and very very soft. With sofa,tv and minibar, and a lovely bathroom with (finally, something good quality) soaps and shampoo. The window was unfortunatley across other rooms, so we had to keep our curtains... More
