“Urban feeling in Lofoten”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

This new hotel in Svolvær offers clean and comfotable rooms with wonderful views of the ocean and mountains of Lofoten. The restaurant food differs in quality. Breakfast is usually very good. The hotel is affordable and recommended to anyone who wants to stay in more modern surroundings than the traditional rorbuer.

Despite a rather unimpressive entrance, this turned out to be a great place ... located right on the waterfront, and on the town square.

The breakfast was probably the best aspect - great range of food, and top quality stuff !

The beds were nice and firm, and the the bedroom was spacious. The bathroom was the usual Norwegian style wet room, but well designed, with shower doors.

The free hotel wifi was somewhat patchy in a few parts of the hotel, and the choice of TV channels wasn't very extensive. I suspect that I was allocated a room in the cheap wing of the hotel, as there was no lift access to the section.

Overall a great choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a waterfront view

Located at the Hurtigruta pier in the Svolvaer center. Many restaurats nearby. Excelent view from the room. Rooms are clean, spacious, beds are very good. Breakfast is excelent. Parking in underground garage is included. Free high speed internet included too. Svolvaer is centraly located on the Lofoten islands. Great location for Lofoten sightseeing.

Property is excellently located in the Svolvær harbour. Hurtiggruten vessels dock nearby, and the buses stop near the hotel.

The hotel is modern but is not an eyesore.

Very good room with great views. The walls in the shower could have been cleaner, though. There was no light fixtures in the roof of the room.

Very good breakfast - one of the best I have had in a Norwegian hotel.

Staff was generally friendly, but not very courteous when I (politley) asked for an early check-in. No offer to store luggage while waiting for the room to be ready.

A good hotel with the best location, just in the center of the village. Clean but with very small room. No wardrobe. Very good breakfast except the fact that they had no sweets or cakes. Free parking at the hotel garage.

Nothing but rave reviews for this gem! A true surprise and pleasure in this charming town. The other hotels are not in the same class as this one, so only stay at them if this one is booked. Included breakfast as in all Norwegian hotels, but much better No hassle front desk, nice staff. Right next to shopping and sights. Avis and Hertz next door.

The room was spacious and modern, the location is right on the wharf (which is about 100 metres from the town centre), the facilities were great, service excellent, breakfast unbelievable and we were fully served despite our boat leaving at 0630. Price is a bit high (over the already high Norwegian level) but you might get a good deal in advance on the Internet.
