City Hotell
Ranked #9 of 10 Hotels in Bodo
Reviewed July 27, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Suggest you inspect the room that's offered before you accept it.

We only stayed one night at the hotel as we were catching the overnight train to Trondheim.So its location just around the corner from the train station was why we booked our room here.Very satisfactory comfortable room if unspectacular but why spend time in you room when you want to get out.We didnt have the breakfast but went for brunch instead and the food was excellent.The home made bread is outstanding.The staff were very friendly and helpful allowing us to leave our bags in reception when we went out for the day.Excellent stay.

My fiancée and I stayed at City Hotell for two nights 3-5 April 2008. We couldn't find any reviews of this hotel on TripAdvisor or elsewhere, and as we booked late it was hard to find a reasonably priced hotel room (we paid approx £65 per night for a double/twin room).

The hotel is 10 minutes away by cab from the airport, and is near the train station. This means it is 10 minutes walk from the centre of Bodo where most other hotels are. Luckily the Airport Bus driver dropped us off right outside the hotel so we didn't have to walk that far.

Check-in was quick and we were soon in our room. The room was on the first floor facing the road, but it is not enough traffic outside for this to be a problem. It was quite cold outside at night, though, and there was a noticeable cold draft from the windows. The size of the room was good, with a flat-screen TV and a good-size sitting area. The bathroom was quite small with a small toilet/shower area and little ventilation.

Reception was helpful and friendly and suggested shops and restaurants we could go to nearby.

Due to flight times we did not get a chance to try the breakfast (which is not included), but this hotel was very good value for money and we would consider staying here again.
