Eliassen Rorbuer are lovely renovated fishermen huts. The interior looked exactly like on the online pictures. Plus: comfortable beds good Internet access No neg points really... Check our their homepage, make sure you book whats right for you and there should be no neg. surprises.... All in all a wonderful place to stay on Lofoten....

Very good equipment for superior rooms...unfortunately not all with optimal view....nice and quiet rorbuer village globally with Anita's shop (fish and high quality burgers) and Coop very close.. Walking till Reine is nice but not convenient on the road.....those who like to fish can do from home....

The rorbuers are recently updated and modernised to a high standard - we stayed in a one bedroom 'superior' rorbuer but were a little disappointed to have no real view out over the water or towards the hills - it seems that the views are 'reserved' for the two bedroom rorbuers. I would advise carefully checking in advance to understand... More

Newly renovated, Nice New beds and linen. Easy self check-in. The cabins are nicely located with a spectacular view. Fish restaurants nearby and a Nice balcony outside to eat Your dinner if you decide to make it yourself in the cabin. Highly recomended :)

We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin with another couple. It was very clean and well equipped but little space to unpack the suitcases and hang up any clothes except for a few pegs by the front door. We were sharing a bathroom between four which was OK but there were no mirrors in the bedrooms which would have been... More

We were keen to stay in a traditional rorbu with mod cons and this did not disappoint. The location is good, though a little further from Reine than we had expected (about 3 miles) - our cabin (21 - "superior one bedroom") was on the water, with a good view across the fjord to the local mountain. Cabin was free... More

We loved our stay in cabin 8 at Eliassen. It was a lovely spot for five nights. They made great recommendations on things to do and we rented one of their boats for the day to explore the fjord they are on. The views are dramatic. Some cabins have better views than others - it is worth the splurge to... More

Modern and comfortable fisherman cabins (rorbu) situated south in Lofoten near the lovely village Reine. We stayed in cabin 25 and 22, both modern and well equipped cabins with a sea view. Cabin 22 had a really stunning view with the fjord and wild mountains in the background. Nice pub/restaurant on site serving delicious local food. Try the "Lofoten Lamb",... More

It's an incredible place to visit, Hamnoy. I doubt there's few more spectacular settings anywhere on the earth. The accomodation too is outstanding. Eliassen rent out bikes/boats etc which are great for exploring the area with. My only gripe with this place is the silly cleaning fee. Despite spending an evening before our departure ensuring that the place was spotless,... More

The sort of accomodation you need to explore the Lofoten Island properly. We must add one word of caution regarding beds: They are bunk beds and not everybody likes that. Enquire before you make a booking.
