We chose the hotel as it was convenient to visit the zoo. But the hotel itself surpassed our expectations : the family room was really comfortable, breakfast was really yummmy put together with a lot of care. Staying here was the best decision.

We stayed in a large double room and paid 300 kr for a roll-away bed for our child. The room was comfortable, beds were fine and it was nice to have a kettle and tea in the room. I would recommend some kind of shade or curtain to be put on the smaller windows as in Scandinavia it gets bright...

This is a very nice and friendly Hotel. Rooms are ok and clean and the staff are very friendly. If you want to combine a visit to the zoo with a hotel stay, this is the place. The Zoo is located just beside the hotel.

This hotell has an absolute beautiful zoo! But the service at the hotell, and the food was straight out terrible! We had to wait 5 hours!!!! for our room to get cleaned so we could get in. We waited over 45min on the food, in an almost empty restaurant, just to get told they did not have what I ordered...

We stayed at the Nordens Ark Hotell for three nights, using it as a base for seeing Smögen, Fjällbacka and of course the Nordens Ark park itself. As a matter of fact, we spent one full day and the majority of the other two days in the park, always with new great experiences (once we could take part in a...

Sleeping in a zoo right by a fjord. That basically sums up why you should come here. Rooms were a bit hostel-like but clean and comfortable. We loved the fold down bunk beds for our boys. Wifi worked well. Breakfast was good. Toiletries passable. All the staff leave in the evening so you are basically on your own after hours....

Norden Ark Hotel was a pleasant surprise, both the hotel facilities and the food. The single room was quite small, but nicely furnished the scandinavian style. There was plenty of room for luggage. The bathroom was also nice and comfortable. The food though was the biggest surprise. The breakfast was just fine, but the lunch we were served was excellent...

We chose this hotel because of the location - and it certainly lived up to our expectations in that regard. It's located on a large body of water and, at twilight, the area is truly breathtaking. It's also less than 10 minutes from the coast. The hotel itself is just fine. We booked a family room but when we arrived...
