We stayed in a triple room. The room was very nice with kitchenette. We could not cook big meals but still good for some light ones in order not to bother the alarm in the room. There were some utensils and plates and stuff in the room. Some more were in the hall that you're free to use. Clean and... More

We spent two weeks in this lovely place. It was super clean, with extremely comfortable beds that I did not want to leave in the mornings. The owner could not have been nicer and more helpful. As we were often out at night the self-catering option was perfect for us. The kitchenette was small but really good to use and... More

Nice place to sleep, with a good bedroom, roomy bathroom (with heated floor) and a small (but sufficient) space to cook and eat (and save on the expensive dining options around...). Was even lucky to see the northern lights - aurora - from the window of our room. And something important that's often overlooked, there are some spots to park... More

The owner is a realy nice lady, who cares about offering a good experience in Alta. I came here to see the northen lights and I was able to see it starting from... More

I ordered after reading the recommendations here on Tripadvisor, and they don't lie. This is a small guesthouse with good rooms, flatscreen TV, spacious bathroom and your own little kitchen with a dining table. It's about midway between the airport and the city centre. The owner is very helpful in helping out with recommendations on where to go and what... More

this was a rather new comofrtable room with ensuite. Owners were very friendly. When we stayed we had to pay cash which was rather annoying It is a drive from the town , but not too far. Alta is a functional town with no great beauty, except around the country side

We spent 5 (2 the first time and 3 after a week) nights in this beautiful guesthouse, as we broken our car and we had some problem to fix it... Despite the bad mood we had for the car, we enjoy our stay and the owners were so kind with us! The rooms are big, well furnished and is equipped... More
