Spent one night at the hotel on our way north to Lofoten/Moskenes. Being a family of 5 we got a family room. The room was spacious enough with a great view north. The price was also good at 1500 kr/night. The room was partly renewed and all in all very good. Breakfast buffet at the hotel was good, and service... More

It is just another basic Scandic hotel, but the people working there sets it apart from many other hotels, Scandic and other chain hotels. Super helpful and smiling -from the cleaners, the chefs and people in the reception. Great location, city centre.

The hotel is just a stone's throw from Bodø Train Station and Ferry Terminal. Another plus point is the decent breakfast spread they serve which are way better in other accommodations I stayed in my Norway trip. The room is clean and basic with 1970s decor but otherwise clean. Free wifi with decent speed is included. I also like the... More

It is fine hotel. Perfect location in Bodo center (anyway small village). Poor reception the only weak point. But overall ok. Very good breakfast, free wi fi. Parking public, payable in working days. A little tired rooms but not to complain really.

Seemed more like a hostel. Rather dreary and tired (like Bodo), but a clean, large room with space even when the comfortable sofa bed was pulled out. No phone in the room. Adequate bathroom. Great location- only a five minute drive to the car ferry. The breakfast buffet offered a variety of fresh dishes. Street parking was free until 8... More

Scandic Bodo is not your usual hotel. Unlike the glitzy chain hotels that one may be used to, Scandic Bodo provides basic comfort to those who are on the road. With hot showers in a clean toilet, comfortable beds and a neat desk, it has all that you need to feel at home. Of course, for those who like a... More

The hotel is centrally located - close to train station, airport and ferries. My room (no 375) was very big and with a great sea view (see attached photos). The room was a little bit old fashioned and needed an upgrade. The breakfast was basic but not up to the standard that many other Scandic hotels have. The breakfast area... More
