I stayed one night at Rica Ishavshotel. The location could hardly be any better, you are right in center and right at the water with this lovely view over the fjord and mountains. Also from my room I could see the bay, the bridge and the Arctic Church, but the windows were really dirty which spoiled the view a litle.... More

Really liked the position (on the waterside and very central) It's a nice modern hotel and the rooms were fresh, comfortable and well laid out. I don't remember being warned the hotel was being renovated when I booked. I paid for a Superior Room with a view of the water. This side of the hotel was covered in scaffolding and... More

Just got back recently from a two weeks stay at the Rica Ishavshotel. From the moment I walked through the door until our final good byes it was a pleasure to be their guest. Our team was quite demanding and had lots of little requests which were all sorted within the blink of an eye! Special thanks to Andreas and... More

I got one of the new rroms and it was modern, clean and practical with a wonderful view og the bridge and the cathedral. The bed was very good and the breakfast buffet is one of the best I've had and the staff is very helpful and service-minded

We stayed here With a big team during the 2014 Chess Olmpics and have only positive things to say about the hotel and their staff.

So lucky to be placed at this hotel by our Hurtigruten travel agent (norway-travel.com). The best views ever and wonderful food at Roast restaurant. We had the King Crab - - don's miss it, and an enormous portion of halibut done with almonds. Ten times better value than either Olso or Bergen

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, and the hotel is good, the room was a good size, although I would have prefered to have a an iron and ironing board, but they seem to be missing in the Rica hotels...

Good things first: The hotel is centrally located on walking distance of everything. It has a prominent place at the harbour and the quay of the Huttigruten post boat is very close by. We enjoyed the restaurant in the evening and the breakfast was excellent, with a large variety of food. Wifi was free and worked well. Major construction works... More

Disclaimer: This review is not from a stay during normal circumstances, but during a period when serveral floors of the hotel were undergoing serious renovation. I do however think that the total lack of professionality displayed regarding this renovation does speak for the service attitude, and should stand as a warning of what you could experience. The positives first: This... More
