Rica Hotel, Bodo. The warm welcome, upgraded rooms with sea view made for a lovely overnight stay. Breakfast was included in the room rate and it was superb.
Our room had a small seating area with tea and coffee making facilities, comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. We slept very well. It was a surprise the next morning to see the bed was two beds pushed together with bed width bar type legs but as I said above, we did sleep very well.
Reasonable size windows opened to the fabulous sea view. We needed to keep these open at night as it was a very hot evening. We did not have any other air-conditioning apart from a fan but this was not a problem for us.
I was concerned about outside noise but it wasn't a problem the evening we stayed.
I thought the hotel was well located. Finding a nice restaurant for evening meal was easy and we enjoyed a wonderful waterfront walk afterwards.
Overall a very convenient, comfortable hotel for an overnight stay. Would return.

Room Tip: Sea view was excellent....also ask for a quiet room as noise could be a problem particularly over a...

For some reason the hotel room reminded me of a cabin on an aging cruise ship. However, nice views of the water from the room (just like from a cabin window). Nice location, walking distance to everything needed.

Stayed there one night in connection with the business.
The attentive staff and check-in went fairly smoothly.

The room was characterized by the presence of a few years ago it was refurbished, but nothing to complain about. The bathroom was small, which was annoying.

Poor sound insulation of windows facing the street, so you hear cars and other noise from the street.

The hotel is located in the center, so it's a short walk to all amenities.

Breakfast was good.

For a single travaller on holiday, not in the holiday period, and not with a Norwegian salary, the prize is very high. However, this is unfortunately often the case in Norway and nothing special for this hotel, which was the less expensive one in Bodö the actual night.
The breakfast was very good, with a lot of ecolological fruits and vegetables.
The staff was friendly and the room was in good shape. The hotel is situated in a good place in the city center, between the boat terminal for Hurtigruten and the central buss station. Most likely, you will not be disturb by the traffic on the main city street outside the hotel.

The hotel is not new, and the rooms are not up to standard, but this also means it is possible to get rooms with a bathtub. A luxury I value greatly.

It is in central Bodø, and close to the taxi cantral.
If you get a sea view it is quite lovely.

The staff is very friendly, and the breakfast is great.
I reccomend this hotel over others I have tried in Bodø, simply because of the breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view and a bathtub.

As usual - Rica offers an amazing breakfast!!!

The hotel iself is rather old and spartanic... no bar, no nice restaurant.
The rooms are clean but very old-fashioned. Old soft beds, dark furniture....
The location is really good but hardly a place to stay in for pleasure.
