“Old, hot and no ventilation”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

We stayed one night here, and we are glad we were not staying longer. The bathroom was really ugly and old, the shower would not stay in place, and took for ever to get some hot water. The ventilation was poor in the bathroom, and non-existing in the room itself. This room was just across from the elevator, DO NOT get those rooms! You could really hear every single person coming and going in and out of the elevator... Also, you could hear everyone talking in the hall. The room got really warm, and no ventilation, so we had to sleep with the window open, which of course also was very noisy, and didn’t really help much on the heat anyway! So not much sleep that night...

On the plus side, it did have a really nice view, and it was clean. :)

Room Tip: Do not get a room just by the elevator.

Very nice in summertime, though in winter also convenient for relaxing and shopping. Lovely view over the fjord and the "mountain"from the room. Dinner with fish plate was excellent.Situated in the middle of town with walking distance to all shopping.

Room Tip: The suite is the nicest, and quiet

We stayed for a night only so it answered the purpose, but still…
The room was on a 2 floor and so old (!), squeaking doors (all of them, literarily), hairdryer in a sleeping room… Heating element in a bathroom looks dangerous and like from 60s, good audibility.
A breakfast was the typical Rica breakfast, which is very nice.
Service vas very good: very professional and friendly staff.
Renovation is needed ASAP =)

Stayed at this Hotel in April 2012. The Hotel is big for such a small place as Fauske. My impression is that some rooms have been refurbished while some are old. The room I got was a single room, in up to date standard. The room was clean and tidy.

The lobby and the resturant is widespaced and the food served is average. The area also contains one bar/cafe which is modern in both style and selection.
The personell was serviceminded and always smiled.

We were passing by Fauske an needed just a stay for the night. So we went to the only hotel in the town, Fauske hotel. There were no rooms in main buliding, but we got a very nice room in the second building by the fiord. The room was a very pleasant one, offering quiet night and comfortable beds. But the real surprise came the next morning, when we went back to the main building for the breakfast. Literally, it was the best breakfast in my life! I could spend many hours trying various dishes - if only I was able to eat more ;-)
Definitely recommended!

Room Tip: Get a room in the second buliding

Stayed here after a weeks trekking trip to the sulitjelma nountain range.
This hotel is part of the rica chain, and you do get the normal rica stuff. Nothing more.
Located on the main street. Rooms facing this street are unexpectedly noisy. Try to get one facing the inner yards or side streets.
Rooms are in need of refurb, mine was probably from the 80-ies. No ac, but you do not need that in northern norway.
Breakfast the standard rica style. Ok, but not more.
The hotel has a sauna, but this is located in a conference room. Not nice at all. Score for the sauna, 1.
I choose not to recommend tvis hotel to a friend because it has nothing extra, nor is fauske that exiting. If you are passing by, then ok to stay.

Finally, rooms are clean.

Located in the center of town across the street from the harbor. Many rooms have harbor views. Reasonably modern and well maintained property. Rooms were spotless, if rather small and spartan (with wood floor). Bathroom was nice size, but stall shower was cramped and somewhat puzzling to operate the controls for multiple shower and spray heads. Dinner and breakfast were included in the room rate. Dinner was served rathern than a buffet. Breakfast was a substantial buffet with a nice selection of hot and cold dishes. Fresh fruit and delicious chocolate covered gingerbread was offered at reception during check-in. Staff was very accommodating. If coming to Fauske by train, the train station is about 1/3 mile (uphill slightly) distant. Taxis are available, though the energetic could walk (about 10-12 minutes)..
