I spent 3 days at this hotell on a business trip. As far as I am concerned this is the only place to stay in Vadsø as long as you don't live here. The hotell was refurbished not long ago and is relative modern with everything you need like wifi and tv. The food is good, the breakfast espescially. I... More

The hotel is located in the center of the town, close to everything. If you are used to large hotels in large metropoles, you might be a bit disappointed when entering the lobby.

We booked on Scandic points which seemed to cause a bit of confusion at check-in which took a while (and the keys were thrown at us across the desk so I am not sure that there had been much training given on optimal customer service) but we were pleasantly surprised to have been put into a two-room suite.

We just spend an overnight stay in Vadsö, Norway. The room had a view to the sea, nice small hotel, clean room, big bed, pillows in two sizes (great). Breakfast was norwegian style, so enough with fruits and different fishes. Recommendable for over night stay.
