This is not Scandic's flagship hotel in Bodø, but rooms are comfortable. Very comfortable bed. But we forewarned: The hotel is on a busy street in the city centre, and I was kept awake by the blaring noise from a nearby nightclub. Also, I impressed on the staff when checking in that my baggage had been lost en route to... More

I had a one night stay here in a single bed room. The room was fine and updated, tiles in the bathroom and wooden floor in the main room. My colleague got a similar room though outdated compared to mine. There was no coffee maker in the room. Overall the hotel looks a bit outdated. Breakfast was well above average,... More

Amazing place. It's not cheep but you know where the money went. The staff is friendly and the guest are too. Only negative is the parking situation. We got a ticket. Not the hotels fault but if you bring a car figure it out before it cost you $$$$. The bar on 17 has the best view of the northern... More

We stayed overnight on our way to the Lofoten Islands. The receptionist allowed us to keep our bikes in the store room overnight, and breakfast next morning was excellent, plenty of variety and we appreciated the vegetarian and vegan choices. Price was very reasonable, our only gripe was that the mattresses were cheap foam and rather too soft for us... More

Cheap, but if the breakfast means something the money saved are not enough. You may have one tiny strip of bacon per fried egg you eat. You don't like eggs? Tough. You allergic? Tough. If you are vegan and shall only sleep cheaply one night, not quite in city centre, this is the hotel for you.

Very nice fjord view. Our shower door didn't close properly, so most of the bathroom floor gets wet. Room has a small fridge and all bookings include breakfast. Breakfast is similar to Thon hotel, but I find Thon's breakfast better. Seems most major cities in Norway has both Scandic and Thon hotel. Central location, easy to walk. Like most cities... More

We stayed for one night in our motorcycle trip to northern Norway. Everything was as it should be, no reason to complain from anything. Special thanks to very nice staff in reception, and we will be back :)

Flooding bathroom, after 1 minute of showering in a room for 4 persons, beds falling apart, bedlamps out of order, and so on... Staff helpful but not as one would expect. I will probably not choose Scandic Hotels in the future. Scandic Bodø does not meet the expectations of a hotel in this pricerange.
