When arriving in Norway in one of the "chain hotels" you often get a factory experience with staff, food, room, etc. Scandic Hammerfest is different. Friendly and helpful staff, excellent food, in particular the breakfast with plenty of variety and a really nice room with a very comfy bed. The compturesystem was down on arrival, but didn't cause major problems....

This is a very nice hotel with nice bedrooms. Had no problems here and the breakfast was great. You can walk to the shopping center so no problem with that either. Good service and a quiet place to stay for a night or four.

The advantages of this hotel are: small gym to do some excercises, good restaurant, tasty breakfast and quite position. The room have a television with all free channel in Norwegian and it can't read avi file stored in our hard disk. The room is normally equipped but the bathroom is terrible small.
