We came witht the ferry from Bodø The 6th of september for a motorcycle trip around Lofoten. The owners gave a wery good expression. Fully equipped rorbu in old style. Magnificent wiew and in the evening a nordthern light made the day complete with its shimmering pale green light. Unforgettable

Situated at the very south end of the Lofotes, this rustic and homey place is worth a visit. To sleep in such a fishermen's cabin and to wake up to the clamor of the sea gulls definitely is an experience one should go through when visiting the island. The rooms were small and basic, yet very clean and newly furnished.... More

I stayed for one night in the hostel cabin. My room was a 4-bed female dorm (bunk bed and two single beds). The room was tiny but very cute and authentic rorbuer style. Not much space though so might be a problem if carrying a lot of luggage. Even though the booking stated that reception closes at 18:00, the receptionist... More

We spent one night in a double room, with twin beds and shared bathroom and kitchen. Our room was large and clean, and included a sink, bed linens, and towels. The beds were quite small. It was not soundproof, therefore it was possible to hear everything that was happening in nearby rooms. We couldn't connect to Wi-Fi from our room,... More

We did fully enjoy our stay at A rorbuer. It's not cheap but even though it is a good price, comparede to other offers on the Lofoten island. The owner was very helpful and friendly, Particually the authentic village A is a real pearl of authenticity and beauty. The red huts, the seagulls, the blue sea and the friendly peaple... More

We stayed for one night in a cabin Tove. It was a part of three cabin row house and had a separate bedroom, bathroom and patio. There was also a small kitchen in the corner of the living room. The terrace especially was nice with evening sun and nice view. Cabin was also clean and there was a big boiler... More

I spent one night in the hostel of blue windows. The bed was comfortable. The room and kitchen were OK. What a surprise when I tried to take a shower and there was no warm water and I spent the only token I was given. Yes, you are limited to only one shower like in the past century in Norway.... More

The price for the area including breakfast and bedlinnen was reasonable. A bit of a youthhostel atmosphere but everything was correct and service and information too. It's a better alternative to choose for a room when there is only two of you.

We had a great stay at this hotel! Very clean, well-organized, etc. It's a reasonable price considering the location in this stunning village/island. FYI, The rooms above the restaurant/bar are far better than renting a cabin because they have outstanding views of the Brygga waterfront and are in excellent shape. The cabins were set back from the water and probably... More

I was apprehensive before arriving in A about these rorbuer fishermen's cabins because the reviews were mixed. But this was the least expensive option for our time frame and I knew the location was right. I was not disappointed. We stayed 6 nights in cabin #7 (Mester) that had a private bath with a shower. The cabin has a working... More
