Svolvær is one of the most beautiful places in Lofoten, and the Scandic Svolvaer hotel was exelent. The stuf was very helpful and the room with the balcony out to the sea was amasing we was so happy with the facility.

We were in Scandic Svolvaer on our honeymoon. The room had a great view to the harbour, but there were many problems with the cleaning, which was very unpleasant. There were for example brownish stains in the bed linen and there wasn’t shower gel at all. When I told about the bed linen in the reception, they promised to fix it. When we later came back to the hotel, the cleaner had been in our room, but she hadn’t change to linen? She had also left a dirty towel with hair on it in the shower.

I would happily recommend this property. Quiet and calm, clean and very cozy staff. Great breakfast room and good breakfast despite Covi-19. Had been great with some play equipment out for the kids. Great views, and one central and quiet accommodation.

Hotel is very well located, close to everything and we are happy we booked this place. The view from the room is beautiful. We recommend for a short stay in lofoten islands. Rooms are fine although we noticed that the floor was not vacuumed during our entire stay. Which was fine.
