Rooms are reasonable for the price, bed was comfortable, breakfast was included in the tariff, which a lot of hotels in Australia could take note of😡, service was sporadic, acceptable most of the time but lacking at other times? Over all it is a nice hotel 😄

Lovely staff, lovely lounge area to watch sport and have a cold beer. Nice room, nice amenities and attentive staff. Room was clean, decent size bathroom and warm which is essential when 15 below! They have changed their name from Rica to Scandic. Which was confusing at first but all good. Love the wooden decor which made it warm and... More

Just the right soft bed and clean room to end the day from a long bus ride. The hotel is cosy with well-appointed decor of Sami designs. Staff are helpful, but the only sour note was no hot breakfast and they run out of my favourite red smoothie drink!

Two days in Karasjok. I was received by a nice and service minded hotel staff. Dinner at night: First course: Two kinds of smoked reindeer heart, then: reindeer filet. Ah...! A good nights sleep - very quiet place. Interesting surroundings: The Saami parliament, museum, old church, tourist centre, theater.

Friendly and helpful staff, nice rooms, good breakfast. And above all: his hotel is in the middle of Norwegian Lapland, and the hotel has gor specially designed curtains, carpets, cups and plates.Even the menu in Storgammen sami restaurant ( where the hotel guests have dinner in summer) have bits of reindeer fur on the outside.

There weren`t many guests but the hotel was being cleaned as the opening of the Sami Parliament by the King and the Crown Prince was scheduled for the coming days. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was on the... More

I was at Rica Karasjok June 3-5. th. The hotel had many guests, and I was told that there is only superior-rooms left, with superior-prices. But I just got a regular room - even on the lower floor (basement-feeling). Still I had to pay 1810 NOK for the first night, and 1610 NOK for the second night - and I... More

We spend just one night here passing through Karasjok but this Hotel is very nice. In the middle of Sami park. With a Sami restaurant with a fantastic and very special atmosphere. It's under a sort of tend; you go a bit down in the ground and looks like a cave. You eat close to the fire in a circle... More
