Arrived with the kast plane from Oslo to attend a 90 year Birthday paty for my favorite aunt. Took the airport express bus from Evenes airport and was dropped at the hotel, and met by my relatives with Norwegian flags - not bad. A few cold beers in the hotel restaurant, and night food at the nearby fast food shop... More

The best and newest hotel in Harstad. The airport express bus, Flybussen drops you off at the door and the hotel in right in the center of town. Good standard on the rooms and windows can be opened. My open complaint was that there was no shirt iron in the room or on the floor. Irons must be picked up... More

Adequate hotel for one night on the way to Bergen. Parking over the road is free after 6-00pm and standard rooms reasonably comfortable and clean! Breakfast was a rather chaotic experience but this may have been partly due to various tour groups. Breakfast food is reasonable and of the usual buffet choice.

Nicely located hotel, right at the sea front. We got a sea view room on the fifth floor. Good quality fixtures and fittings and well maintained and cleaned. My only minor issue was that the Information on parking wasn't very clear. Not the end of the world. I got a good price from Booking.com, not sure I would pay the... More

Just stayed one night here before flying home to the UK. The reception staff were very pleasant and helpful, sorting out parking for us. Our room was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable and with a nice view over the harbour. We had dinner in the Egon restaurant which was busy. Food was good if a little expensive, but this was...

The location is great in the middle of the city centre, but unfortunately the service is not the best. They would benefit from better service in reception! Guests don't like to be ignored. Rooms are average but clean. Breakfast was good, good selection of food. Nice but impersonal hotel.

We went here for a weekend, and neither of us had been to Harstad before. We came late Friday night, and was met by a friendly receptionist. We got a room with great view, and also a little balcony. The view was towards the sea, so beautiful! The room was not that big, but that did not matter, cause they... More
