Perfect location in Svolvaer. Very nice and clean rooms. We stayed in 2 twin rooms and appreciated especially the balcony and seaview. Amazing views from dining room/breakfast room! We enjoyed our stay very much.

We stayed one night in the Scandic Svolvaer and compared to other Scandic Hotels we stayed in during our trip this hotel is a good 4-Point hotel. The room we had was small and reminded me of a ship cabin with a wonderful view on the harbour, so it fitted perfectly. The room was clean, the bathroom was big enough.... More

Really enjoyed my stay at the hotel, some complain about the price of the rooms but everything is expensive in Norway so it didn't strike me as more expensive than some other rooms in town. The room isn't big but the size is adequate. There was a deal on a queen size bed at the time so I was very... More

Located on a small island and mid city. Small room with view to the backyard/entrance. Some annoying low humming from the hotell itself. Clean room. Small TV and low resolution. Not a room you want to spend more time in then needed. Breakfast was okey. Minus bacon not for itself. View from bar and part of the restaurant was stunning.... More

Nice well run hotel on the waterfront a few minutes from the centre of town with a great view of the harbour. Nice comfortable rooms and good wifi. The staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast.

We had a very nice one night stay in June. The room was small but attractive, with wooden floor and a nice view (and balcony) towards the inter harbour. The breakfast is served with sea view, and had a very good selection. We stayed at Henningsvær Bryggehotel later, and the standard is very much better at Scandic in Svolvær. A... More

Regular 3-4 star hotel with nice surroundings - very close to the ocean. Breakfast staff with limited Norwegian language. Ordered one 180+cm double bed, got two single beds that were not linked together. Romantic? Not at all!
