Scandic Bodo
Ranked #6 of 10 Hotels in Bodo
Reviewed 10 April 2014

The breakfast is great as it usually is at the Rica hotels. The rooms are old but clean. The conference facilities are mediocre at best. The lunch served was a disgrace. There are many hotels in this town and I will stay somewhere else next time.

We had an enforced overnight stop here due to bad weather so a room was booked for us at the Rica hotel. Good location, as we needed something near the port. Reception staff were excellent and we were allocated a junior suite which was very comfortable although we were on the street side and it was a little noisy. However, the weather was so bad there weren't too many cars about! Bathroom had great "greenland" products which I'd not come across before including bath salts and body scrub which you don't often see.
I agree wholeheartedly with other reviewers about breakfast - our only problem was choosing what to have! I also noticed that you could make up a lunch pack at no extra cost and the hotel would pack it for you - what a refreshing attitude.

My partner and I stayed here over the Christmas period, lovely hotel in the quaint town of Bodø. A few minutes walk from the station, easy to find. Checkin was as easy as pie, and the staff were very friendly. We stayed in a junior suite and had requested a room with a view of the harbor, and this was granted, our room was perfect after a 19 hour train journey. The bed felt like heaven and the inclusive buffet style breakfast in the morning went down a treat. We are vegan, but there was still plenty to eat; fresh fruit, selection of fruit juices, breads, mushrooms, potato wedges ect, well worth the room rate.We also took advantage of the free to use fitness room and sauna, this was such an added bonus, and staff were very helpful when we asked to use the facilities. All in all, when in Bodø make sure you're staying at the Rica.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbor

The personnel is of a great kindness. The hotel is comfortable and is very well equipped. Beautiful view and and a very hearty breakfast. Possibility of parking its car behind the hotel. A true pleasure to sleep in this hotel. We will return.

This is a hotel with excellent staff. The hotel room was modestly sized but clean and comfortable, and I got some extra things I needed with minimum fuss. The breakfast is their high point, very many good choices - and no microwave scrambled eggs! They even had home-made waffles and a good variety of milk for cereal. The friendliness of the staff started with the welcome in the reception, and kept going in the conference division and finally in the restaurant. The location was by the sea and right in the cenre of Bodø - a very short ride to the airport as well.

Definitely the place to stay if I visit Bodø again.

Stayed here tho nights in the beginning of September. Very good location at the harbor, short stroll to shops, and it is also possible to walk from the airport. Friendly and service-minded staff at the reception. The room was ok, overlooking the harbor. Small bathroom, but big enough for one person, and also clean. Free wifi in the room. Breakfast is in the restaurant, and it was very crowded at 8 am. Breakfast was good, different kinds of bread, eggs, meat, cheeses etc.

Very good option to stay in Bodo. Rooms are quite spacious (we had a superior room with seaview) and the level of comfort is only slightly impaired by the tiny bathroom. Curtains do really obscure, no problem with the midnight light. Mattress and cushions could be a little better, we had a good sleep nonetheless. Breakfast is very good, with plenty of choice and fresh delicious food. Parking available in the vicinity, although not free.
All in all, we would gladly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back, with seaview.
