This is a new hotel in the very city center of Narvik.

The walls in rooms are made of huge panoramic windows which offer all the guests an awesome view no matter which room they are given.

Good and varied complimentary breakfast. Excellent and friendly service in both the restaurant and the lobby.

Free Wi-Fi in rooms.

Panorama bar in the very top of the hotel.

A public parking house in connection of the hotel. The parking fee was 100 NOK for 24 hours.

A warm recommendation!

Actually stayed there July 2012 when they just opened 2 Month earlier. Not disappointed, everything was fresh and really worth it (other older hotel in Narvik is in same price range). Room is spacious and bathroom very clean, the color scheme of the room makes you feel extra welcoming.

The breakfast,, yes the wide selection of salmons, this is the highlight in our stay.

The hotel is not near the train station (15 minute walk) but the shuttle bus station is just around the corner as well as the main shopping mall.

This hotel has a charming interior decor, modern and very cozy. We like the big poster hung inside the room.
Situated in the heart of Narvik town centre, bus and train station is within walking distance.
The Bar located at the top floor with a panoramic view is the best thing this hotel could offer.

Stayed here just one night ! What a waste....
A bit far and trouble from station if you need to pull your luggage ! Advised to get a taxi.
Great hotel with everything you need. Great view, superb breakfast, clean room, fast wifi, friendly staff and perfect place to see the northern light just outside the sky bar at top floor.
We are so lucky !! Amazing day ever... We saw the northern light at the sky bar for more then
3 hours until the bar closed at 1am ! Its was level 3 !! we saw the Polaris just on top of us and a meteor too ! What a wonderful day !! Highly recommended !!

This hotel is very nice. Staff friendly and helpful, room very nice and comfortable, great breakfast and car park close the hotel.
Beautiful view from our room (11th floor) and we're very well placed to see the new year pyrotechnical spectacle.
We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommended this hotel.
The only negative point, restaurant was closed during the 4 days spent in the hotel. It is a shame!!

I stayed at the Rica hotel in Narvik as a base to chase the Northern Lights for 5 days. The hotel was fabulous and everything was to a high standard. Great breakfast, room, wifi, tv, staff etc... The airport bus literally drops off at the door and collects to take you back to the airport.
It is a good place to be based, just on the edge of the main stretch in Narvik. Parking is free after 6pm and before 9am opposite the hotel or just 100NOK for the car park behind the hotel for 24 hrs.
I really enjoyed my stay here and would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I asked for a room on a higher floor for the view. I was given a room on the 13th floor which was st...
