Perfect room for a family at a reasonable price. Room was good size and beds very comfortable. Very convenient location for downtown Alta. Breakfast starts early so you get breakfast even before an early flight. Recommended!

Scandic Alta is expensive, but that's what you get when you travel to Norway. The scenery of the area is definitely worth paying a little extra and the hotel itself is very nice and modern. The restaurant was great too, and the staff were friendly. Free tea and coffee!!

Nice and clean chainhotel in the center of Alta. Luckily the view from the room was very good: the mountains and the Nordlystkatedralen -church. Our friends were not so lucky. Breakfast included also plenty of different kinds of fish, thanks for that.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights on our recent tour of Scandinavia. Our first impression was very poor. We were given the keys to a room upon arrival. On entering the room we found that it had not been cleaned and it smelled. We returned to reception and informed the staff of the problem. She took the key...

This is one of the best Scandic Hotels we stayed in during our trip to Norway. The rooms are quite spacious, bathroom is heated (maybe a little too hot!, but it is nice to get out of the shower and be warm), wifi works well, and there is room to walk around without bumping into one another. The hotel is...

This hotel is centrally located and right next to the shopping mall and the modern Lutheran church. The room and bathroom are average European size with amenities and toiletries, however, if you have to use a hair conditioner, all Scandic hotels provide hair conditioner to premium rooms only. Wi-Fi is free in the room and all areas with easy connection...

There are few options in Alta, and all are expensive just like the rest of the country. But, when you arrive at 10:00 a.m. and the hotel lets you check-in, that is amazing. The Scandic Alta let me do just that. My room was extremely comfortable and warm. The shower was fantastic, as were the heated floors. It was very...
