With a wonderful breakfast and nice view from the room, this was allmost a top score. The straff is friendly and it's walking distanse to pretty much anywhere. But the internet connection is to slow and the temperature of the water was to unstable. I'm not a big fan of the "be green theme", but creds for thinking of the... More

Seems this hotel is a combination of two buildings. We were given a room in the old section. We needed a family suite. This is a room with a double bed and set of two fold down beds on the wall (think bunk beds). You must navigate two small flights of stairs AFTER getting off the elevator. There is no... More

If you arrive by Hurtiguten cruise, this hotel is almost next to where it docks, very convenient. The service at the reception was very friendly and helpful when we enquired about the bus for the next day, they even printed out the schedule for us. Despite having their own restaurant, which is very good, the staff was generous to recommend... More

Another wonderful Thon hotel. A great buffet breakfast, lots of variety, fantastic coffee (all types) and pleasant friendly service. Every table has a bottle of local cod liver oil for you to try (it wasn't as bad as you think)! The hotel is very central, staff are helpful and it's spotless.

A good, clean and modern hotel situated a few yards from where the Hurtigruten docks. Restaurant and bar excellent and rooms are warm and well appointed. We did not use the free access to the local gym, which is about 200m from the hotel. Excellent bars and restaurants in the area. Well worth a visit.

This hotel is perfectly located in the center of Svolvaer, just a few steps from the port of Hurtigruten. Everything in Svolvaer is within walking distance. The view from this hotel is just fantastic. The fjord, the mountains and the city, all just outside your window.

A good 4* hotel. Good breakfast and superiour coffee (Nespresso). The ordinary rooms are relatively small. The superior rooms have a breath taking view on the harbour. A very pleasant hotel, with a good restaurant for dinner as well.
