We loved the Kunstnerhuset! Bente is so warm and welcoming, and she gave me alot of information before our trip, always answering my emails quickly! We started our bicycle trip in Svolvaer, and the location of Kunstnerhuset is perfect! Just a short walk from the town center over the bridge. The entire house is spotless and comfortable. Our room had... More

This little guesthouse is tucked away over the big bridge in Svolvaer, about 15 minutes walk from the waterfront in a quiet neighborhood at the top of a steep hill. Parking is at the bottom of the hill but they allow you to drive your car up to the door to unload temporarily. There is a spotless kitchen and large... More

The Kunstnerhuset (Artist's House) was a wonderful place to place while traveling through Svolvaer. We spent one night in the Artist's House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is not a typical hotel - many of the guests are artists - there for a long period of time. I think of it like a bed & breakfast, without the breakfast.... More

Stayed at Kunstnershuset during a painting course. And the place is perfect. Beautiful surroundings give you more than enough of inspiration. Besides bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen there is a studio upstairs with inspiring views over Svolvaer and the sea.

Stayed there on driving holiday trough North Norway. Difficult to find place was the first impression. Very friendly welcome by the host the second. Room basic, shared bathroom (with a few other rooms). Also access to shared kitchen and lounge. Primarily for artists to stay for some time. Some rooms rented out to tourists. So we met some interesting people.... More

This lodge is a place for artists to get insperarion and you will see that from the art hiding around the place. The main reason we came was to get a view of northern lights and thats what we got :D You can also walk to downtown.

We loved staying here, the room (room 2) was very cosy and had everything we needed. The kitchen is fully equipped and the sitting room has a good TV and sofas. Above all the whole place is spotlessly clean, and very well run. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

I had a wonderful stay at the Kunstnerhuset I lofoten. As a single traveller I found it so friendly and relaxed on arrival and throughout. I loved the views from all around the hotel which were much better than expected from somewhere of good value. I took many pictures from my bedroom window alone. The reception area is so homely...

Rooms are warm and confortable, kitchen and livingrom are very large and well furnished. It's located at 10 mins walk to the city center and supermarkets. The owner is very kind and we met interesting people in there. Totally suggested!

A charming small hotel - the simple rooms are spotless and provide stunning views over the skerries of Svolvaer in the Lofotens. Friendly host is very helpful and there is a shared kitchen, lounge/diner, washing machine and even a bicycle for guest use. Excellent value given the cost of other accommodation in the Lofotens. It is a 2km walk into... More
