Brilliant hotel, modern rooms, efficient and friendly staff. Make sure you visit the bar on the 16th floor for amazing views. The breakfast is the best I have ever had with typical Norwegian choice of various smoked and pickled fish, cheese, meats yogurts, fresh fruit and smoothies as well as a cooked breakfast. Choice of excellent breads and of course... More

After months of staying in self-catering hostels, my partner and I were looking forward to relaxing in a nice hotel. We were, therefore, disappointed to find that this hotel lacked some of the basic features that we had enjoyed at almost all of our other accommodation. We arrived at 8pm after around 15 hours in transit to find that the... More

After my dire experiences with the Thon hotels in Bodo and Svolvaer prior to arriving here, I was very relieved to find my room here was a vast improvement. Very well furnished with an enormous semi-circular array of windows giving a sensational view of the ski lift and surrounding city. My faith in Norwegian hotels has been restored!

Well located and easy to find as tallest building in Narvik. Relaxed atmosphere in the rooftop bar. Very tasty bar snack of ham and cheese focaccia with fried and chilli mayonnaise. Comfortable spacious rooms and bath in the room. Rooms have fridge but no tea/coffee facilities. You can get coffee from the bar and reception. Walking distance to the Narvik... More

I've been here once, having breakfast after a night of midnightsun golf at Skjomen in June 205. A great reception when I arrived, nice room with a great view, nice and quiet town, a good dinner at the restaurant at a fair price and look forward to breakfast ! Terrific hotel !

Clean, nice hotel. Room rather tiny but bed good and bathroom great. Nice staff and very helpful. Good and delicious breakfast included in our room. Free Wifi that worked well, which was good for me because I had to work during my stay there. Quite exspensive hotel though :/

Very nice new hotel in Narvik. Nice view from room. Room had big windows. Service and food was very good but the room was not warm enough. Maybe the winter time was the reason. Parking house was not ready.

I've stayed at Scandic in Oslo and I just left Narvik and I must say its 6 times better than Oslo. The team is super nice and professional, they made us feel home and the room was beautiful and clean, and the view from our 6th floor room was stunning
