Arrived at this hotel after a long day travelling, our room was clean and comfortable, just a pity that it looked out onto the street which was not exciting, but then you don't spend a lot of time in it. The evening meal consisted of a buffett which was very good, as was the breakfast with plenty of choice. The... More

We did not have a great experience in this hotel. First, the room we were given as part of a tour group was already occupied, which we did not know until we walked in on people in bed! We were given another room, but then our bags did not turn up - we found them outside the first room. We... More

This place is disappointing. It is a modernist eyesore with a number of strangely-shaped rooms that caused some of our party to insist on alternative rooms. The restaurant (both food and service) is poor. Buffet dinner and buffet breakfast were not good, with luke warm food and slow replenishment. We found it best to avoid and eat elsewhere.

Northern Norway in June is the perfect place for midnight golf, and some friends and I teed off at Skjomen Golfpark near Narvik about 2 pm after the schlep from Harstad/Narvik Airport where we arrived on the last flight of the day from Oslo. After the round, about 6 am, we hit the road looking for breakfast before heading for... More

Modern and pleasant hotel right in the center of Narvik. Good Scandinavian breakfast. The bedroom is spacious and tastefully decorated. Stunning views from the upper floors. Nice bar / cafe and terrace on top of the hotel.

The best hotel in Narvik. Very good beds, fantastic views especially from the bar in 16th floor. Hotel breakfast one of the best we've ever had. Staff very polite and helpful. Highly recommended and good reason spending an extra night in Narvik.

Good hotel in Narvik. Close to the ski resort but not walking distance. Close to center of town and walking distance to all major stores. No private parking available. The staff are very friendly, particularly in the bar.
