“There is only one hotel in Vadso”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

The hotel rooms are small, very small indeed.
The service is non-excisting.
The rooms looked like they weren't cleaned for the last 2 months.
The breakfast is crap.
Then why would you even consider this hotel - well, it's the only hotel in town.

My husband and I had booked a double room for ourselves and our two dogs. To our big surprise we were offered to stay in an absolutely gorgeous suite! We loved this hotel, and breakfast is really worth getting up early for!! Very friendly staff as well - and we are really grateful they let dogs stay at their hotel too - and in a suite!! We will definitely come back on another occasion!

I walked in and immediately walked out and asked for another room.. The room reeked of cigarette smoke. Bed linens and towels smelled as well. No opportunity to change rooms as the hotel was overbooked. Maybe if you are a chain smoker this is a great place to stay. Maybe it has some good points. I don't know, I can't get past the smell. Shower floods the entire bathroom. I can't wait to leave. If I was not with a group, I would not be here.

Room Tip: Ask for nonsmoking.

Right in the middle of Vadso. It is worth travelling to this remote corner of Norway for the peacefulness and natural beauty. You really can't expect a 5 star hotel.
Room was clean, comfortable and perfectly adequate. I had dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was very good. Breakfast was fine, typical for Norway. All in all, perfectly ok but nothing special.

Excellent restaurant and very nice service across the board! Very friendly staff, even offering us two bikes to ride around Vadso. Overall a pleasant experience and quite a difference to the experience at the Rica in Hmmerfest.

Stayed July 2013, travelled with family

Corporate style hotel in Vadso centre. Service unprofessional - example Reception staff seemed more interested in having a laugh and a joke with blonde lady - not sure if she worked there but was always hanging around. Wifi connection terrible - hardly available. Room stiflingly hot even with window open and unnattractive view of houses on back street. Breakfast excellent but hot choice not available Sundays till 8am so we missed out. Guests openly plunder the cold buffet to provide for lunchtime! So not all bad! Loved the mirror/counter/chair combo in the bedroom so could get ready without having to move around. Bed squishy which I liked but my partner hated.

Room Tip: Pay the supplement - no point relying on an upgrade. Or check into the hotel across on the island.

We stayed here 2 nights in pretty inhospitable weather. Our room was well appointed, there was a reasonable selection of pay per view films and the beds were comfortable.

Staff in this hotel were excellent.

I have to say that the food was just OK and for a Brit in Norway overpriced. Breakfast was mediocre at best.

Would I stay again..for sure.
