“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

The Rica Hotel in Bodø is good. We had a nice room, the service is very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was also good. The location is in the harbour, but only a few rooms have view, so be sure to ask for it early. Overall, this is a good, decent hotel.

First, the Rica Bodo is conveniently located to the NSB Central Rail Station and the downtown area. It is also on the waterfront.

Second, without our asking, we were upgraded for our two nights to a junior suite. This room had a lovely view of the harbor and extra space for the little time we were in the room.

Third, the hotel is conveniently located near the shops and restaurants in Bodo.

Fourth, all of the staff were very helpful.

I highly recommend this hotel.

located in the main street, Rica's providing nice but somewhat "tired" rooms. It would do with some re-decoration. Nice and clean though. The rooms facing sea are marvellous - you can see the "Hurtigruten" passing just outside your window.
The staff are doing their outmost to make you feel welcome, the breakfast buffet is just marvellous.

Room Tip: try to get a room with sea view

The location is very central and our room had a nice sea view. The hotel and rooms are a little dated but are still nice.The receptionist offered great service while room service was lacking.
The buffet breakfast is very good.

Room was sweet, 2 rooms, living with desk and pull out couch, huge bathroom, super comfy beds, quiet, bacon, eggs, sausage, cereals, meats for comp. breakfast. Best part is they pointed me towards Bode Vandrerhiem, which is at the railway station a few blocks up and for 120 crowners they let me do 4 loads of laundry! First place in 2 weeks I've found in all of norway. Desk very helpful, underground parking if you drive around back of hotel you will see covered parking area with their name, then just take elevator up to reception.

Room Tip: Ask for free upgrade, worked for me, got the 2 rooms set up, or ask for 510, heated bathroom floor g...

We did not stay at Rica Hotel Bodo. We were looking for a place to have breakfast.

The receptionist offered us breakfast and to take our bags in since there were only 15 minutes left before the breakfast would close. The breakfast was wonderful and at a good price.

Would surely come back for more!
