The hotel is located right next to the town shopping square, only 2 minute walk from the hotel door. The hotel is quite large, the room is so roomy, nice and clean. The breakfast is quite excellent. There are an Internet wifi with a very strong signal. Alta is a small town, so which is mean you have every thing...

We were a 3-person group travelling with our dog to Alta from Finland. When we arrived at the hotel, we took a parking spot from outside the hotel (about 8EUR/24hrs) - there are free parking spaces just next to the hotel but only for the night (you have to pay for parking between 7am-5pm). The rooms were clean and spacious...

Apart from a debacle when checking in, not entirely the hotel's fault and the delay in getting luggage, this is a nice modern hotel. The shower enclosure is one of the best I have seen and there is a small and critically, empty fridge, there is an ice machine near the lifts. There is no coffee of tea making facilities...

Nice room but no aircon so it could get hot in summer. Very clean room, comfy bed, excellent shower in nice bathroom. Free breakfast was excellent with very wide selection of hot snd cold food. However whoever cooks the fried eggs needs to learn not to get egg shell in them as every one i had included bits of eggshell....

We had a lovely and big room on the 6th floor, the bathroom was nice too and everything was clean. The Hotel is situated right in the Center and next to the fabulous Nordlys Cathedral.

Stayed there during a guided tour. My room was small. The central light was not working. The bathroom was extremely small and I had a cold shower even if I turned the tap to extremely hot! Not very nice. The room was dusty. Dinner and breakfast were ok. Nothing special but ok.

Our room was spacious and clean. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet. The breakfast buffet offered a lot and everything was really good. We ate dinner at the hotel restaurant once and the salmon was perfect. We can reccomend this hotel and would stay there again.

Perfect room for a family at a reasonable price. Room was good size and beds very comfortable. Very convenient location for downtown Alta. Breakfast starts early so you get breakfast even before an early flight. Recommended!

Scandic Alta is expensive, but that's what you get when you travel to Norway. The scenery of the area is definitely worth paying a little extra and the hotel itself is very nice and modern. The restaurant was great too, and the staff were friendly. Free tea and coffee!!
