The personnel is of a great kindness. The hotel is comfortable and is very well equipped. Beautiful view and and a very hearty breakfast. Possibility of parking its car behind the hotel. A true pleasure to sleep in this hotel. We will return.

This is a hotel with excellent staff. The hotel room was modestly sized but clean and comfortable, and I got some extra things I needed with minimum fuss. The breakfast is their high point, very many good choices - and no microwave scrambled eggs! They even had home-made waffles and a good variety of milk for cereal. The friendliness of the staff started with the welcome in the reception, and kept going in the conference division and finally in the restaurant. The location was by the sea and right in the cenre of Bodø - a very short ride to the airport as well.

Definitely the place to stay if I visit Bodø again.

Stayed here tho nights in the beginning of September. Very good location at the harbor, short stroll to shops, and it is also possible to walk from the airport. Friendly and service-minded staff at the reception. The room was ok, overlooking the harbor. Small bathroom, but big enough for one person, and also clean. Free wifi in the room. Breakfast is in the restaurant, and it was very crowded at 8 am. Breakfast was good, different kinds of bread, eggs, meat, cheeses etc.

Very good option to stay in Bodo. Rooms are quite spacious (we had a superior room with seaview) and the level of comfort is only slightly impaired by the tiny bathroom. Curtains do really obscure, no problem with the midnight light. Mattress and cushions could be a little better, we had a good sleep nonetheless. Breakfast is very good, with plenty of choice and fresh delicious food. Parking available in the vicinity, although not free.
All in all, we would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back, with seaview.

Rica Hotel, Bodo. The warm welcome, upgraded rooms with sea view made for a lovely overnight stay. Breakfast was included in the room rate and it was superb.
Our room had a small seating area with tea and coffee making facilities, comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. We slept very well. It was a surprise the next morning to see the bed was two beds pushed together with bed width bar type legs but as I said above, we did sleep very well.
Reasonable size windows opened to the fabulous sea view. We needed to keep these open at night as it was a very hot evening. We did not have any other air-conditioning apart from a fan but this was not a problem for us.
I was concerned about outside noise but it wasn't a problem the evening we stayed.
I thought the hotel was well located. Finding a nice restaurant for evening meal was easy and we enjoyed a wonderful waterfront walk afterwards.
Overall a very convenient, comfortable hotel for an overnight stay. Would return.

Room Tip: Sea view was excellent....also ask for a quiet room as noise could be a problem particularly over a...

For some reason the hotel room reminded me of a cabin on an aging cruise ship. However, nice views of the water from the room (just like from a cabin window). Nice location, walking distance to everything needed.

Stayed there one night in connection with the business.
The attentive staff and check-in went fairly smoothly.

The room was characterized by the presence of a few years ago it was refurbished, but nothing to complain about. The bathroom was small, which was annoying.

Poor sound insulation of windows facing the street, so you hear cars and other noise from the street.

The hotel is located in the center, so it's a short walk to all amenities.

Breakfast was good.
