Weekend break just before Xmas. There are 2 Scandics in town. You can see one from the other. This is the cheaper, less flash one. Was a Rica Hotel. They are in the middle of modernising and some rooms were not available but we saw no evidence of any renovation. No restaurant at the hotel. They just do the usual... More

Stayed there because the night ferry to Moskenes (Lofoten) was cancelled without notice so I was searching for a place to stay at 2am something. I asked the guy at the front desk if there is any rooms and he replied NO without even checked. I drove to another Scandic (Havet) nearby, the guy in Havet found a room but... More

The presidential suites are very nice. Good space for 4 persons. Junior suites are very comfortable for family with kids because of the 2 separate rooms. The breakfast buffet was excellent. The staff very kind and helpfull.

Uncomplicated, central location, nice and clean rooms and tasteful breakfast. Good and quiet rooms with essential accessories present. Fast check-in, polite reception members. Fine location in the central parts of Bodø.

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
