This is really just a place for a sleep. Hotel doesn't do dinner ( in October anyway) and it is not close to the centre of town where most of the newer and bigger hotels are located. Breakfast fairly basic, looks like when it's quiet they put out supposedly fresh stuff like tomato and cucumber for more than 1 day.... More

I didn't have great expectations about staying here after staying in other best westerns in Denmark but this hotel is different and very special. They have a beautiful art theme throughout the hotel with paintings in the common areas and local artist paintings inside the bedrooms. There are only 22bedrooms and each bedroom has a plaque with artist name at... More

The hotel is close to everything, yet in a quiet neighbourhood. Friendly and helpful staff, ok breakfast. Lofoten attracts lots of tourist and hotels are expensive. We were happy with Best Western Svolvær - good value for money. Tip: the hotel has no elevator.

I think this can not even be considered an hotel and some authority should eventually withdraw their "license". It is not possible that in 2015 a multi levels hotel has no elevator. Guests that arrive with suitcases after check in, are supposed to carry on these for several flights of stairs? Evidently so it is in this "hotel". I do... More

Stayed two night, half board. Both breakfast and diner were good. Room was good, spacious enough, and quiet. Bathroom was fine, with a bath and shower in the bath. Staff is very friendly. There is no elevator so if you have problems with walking stairs that might be a problem. Nog a problem for us though. Not a luxurious hotel... More

We spent a few days at the hotel. OK location a few minutes walk from the harbour. The room was ok, but the bathroom was awful. Very old with an old bathroom-smell. Impossible to keep clean. Simple, but ok breakfast. Not low price. Will not go back there.

If you just need a place to sleep for a night, this hotel is ok, but I guess there are more modern properties available in Svolvaer. The breakfast was ok, in fact better than we expeted. There was space available for free parking, which is a bonus. The hotel did not accept my BW gift card money, which was a... More

Breakfast OK but the layout created kaos and ques. Not enough tables and understaffed. Good parking and quiet area. Near senter. As a BW Gold Elite, I did not recieve any... More

I tried to book a stay at this hotel, but did not get any confirmation, hence I assumed the booking was not valid. I also checked with my bank and they confirmed that the charge was cancelled. I therefore booked another hotel instead. Suddenly the hotel called me at 10pm the night I tried to book and Asked me why... More
