The rooms are rather small, but clean and with comfy beds. The hotel couldn't be located any better in Svolvaer, you're only a few steps away from anything and have magnificient views. The breakfast buffet offers a lot of diversity.

I suppose they would say all views are good but it was well worth it to us to get an upstairs balcony. The view of the water is great and it was pretty quiet.

Hi...Are there separate beds in the rooms?
I believe there were separate beds in the room I stayed in; common in Europe is 2 singles put together and can be separated. I am sure there are different configurations. Give them a call or email. They answered a question I had by email.
