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

I stayed here with my partner over the winter low season. Unfortunately, the beautiful scenery and cute cabin was completely ruined by the poor service we experienced at these rorbuer. First of all, the owners did not clear the VERY icy, snowy and steep steps that led up to the hostel rooms, and it was incredibly dangerous. I think they... More

Stayed one night in rorbu number 11, Nipingen. Thank god we were alone in the building with 3 bedrooms, one bath, kitchen and living room. The bedrooms were really small and you couldn`t lock the door. There were almost no heating and the radio in the living room didn`t work properly. The walls are really thin so you can hear... More

We had a great one night stay in one of the rorbus here. Living room with fully provisioned kitchen, bathroom, bedroom (with two single beds - the nightmare of Norway if you enjoy double beds). One thing I don't get about rorbus is the charging structure regarding linen. They all have a fee for the rorbu and then linen (sheets,... More

Bluntly, nothing special and outrageously overpriced, which might explain why there were few guests in mid-June. Simple rooms with a basin in a converted sjohus with clean shared baths and toilets. At US$150 a night one might expect more. Breakfast was poor prepackaged stuff from the bar. Internet worked at lest. Service OK if a bit relaxed. Aside rom the... More

Stayed there in august 2010 for a tour of Lofoten. We stayed only 1 night and didn't spend much time in Å. We had some difficulties finding this place, but just continue to drive until you have to enter the "end of road"-tunnel (only parking space and turning point on the other side of the tunnel). Å Rorbuer is a... More

Beautiful location of this hotel gives you the best opportunity to feel real Lofots. The hotel consists of several fishermen houses adapted for tourists. Rooms are quite small but cosy. Beds are comfortable, every room has a washbasin, showers are common. There is quite a good restaurant around, serving delicious fish dishes and cold beer. The price for single rrom... More
