We had a little trouble finding this hotel as its location is not very clear, both in the Lonely Planet and Rough Guide guidebooks. If you arrive by train, go up to the street that runs parallel to the train tracks (Sjogata). Take the street that is goes up the hill opposite the train station and climb up the hill one more street to Storgata. The hotel is on the northeast corner and has a small sign that’s easy to miss. The desk clerk was friendly and helpful, giving us directions to the grocery store and a kebob place. Our room (205) was on the small side although the bathroom was of reasonable size. This is an older place so don’t expect anything special for the rooms. There wasn’t room enough for side tables by the beds and there wasn’t much storage space. The room did have a desk and chair and an extra chair. There is free wifi. The router went down once, but the desk clerk recycled it and got it back on. The beds were not so good. Mine was saggy in the middle and I woke up with a backache. Lots of very hot water. It's off the main street and very quiet. Breakfast is not included. They offer a breakfast for 75 NOK but we didn’t use it. The room wasn’t serviced on the second day. We went down the hall to the linen cabinet and helped ourselves to fresh towels. Compared to the other hotels available in Bodo this place is a reasonably good value but a few too many negatives for me.
