Customer service was excellent and staff very informative. Dinner was traditional festive foods and we enjoyed the recommendation. Breakfast had a good selection of Scandinavian foods. Would eat here again.

The restaurant was great with excellent fare for breakfast. I didn't dine there other than the breakfast provided though. Nonetheless the food was excellent with a wide range of meat, fish, cereals and others. The pancakes and waffles were particularly tasty. Highly recommended if you happen to stay at Kirkenes

Cannot count the Problems we had with this hotel. Very untypical for Norway. Room was extremely dirty, smelled like someone was smoking. Although the Hotel was nearly empty, the reception did not offer a better room and only replied that they have only non Smoking rooms and we are wrong. Besides a lot of other small issues, we were surprised... More

Cold and icy outside we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. We had a lovely meal of soup and share plated two mains. The waiter was happy to bring empty plates for us to dip into the mains as we wished. We had the King Crab pappardelle and the reindeer . Both were excellent. The reindeer was tender and... More

Nice and cosy restaurant. Limited dinner menu. Friendly waiting staff, however a bit stretched the night I was staying there.

Walked around Sentrum and spotted Kafe Sentrum next to Bibliotek but it was too crowded and we were in the freezing cold. Hurried across to Scandic, we found a restaurant-cum-cafe. The chesecakes, coldberry pies and hot coffee were God-sent. We didnt have our dinner here though. Since we stayed almost 6D in Kirkenes we had a go at each place... More
