We just spent a fantastic week staying in an apartment here over Christmas. The airport shuttle bus dropped us right outside the hotel. The English speaking staff were welcoming, friendly and assisted with our every request. Reception had a candle-lit seating area and wide screen television playing the world news, and a bar serving tea, coffee and alcohol. On arrival we were pleasantly suprised with a free upgrade to a larger apartment, which was located in a separate building next to the hotel, with an outdoor staircase leading up to the top floor - it was just like having our own penthouse flat. We had our own front door with good security, a sizeable kitchen / living area, a separate bedroom with ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The well-equipped kitchen allowed us to cook a range of meals all week, even a full Christmas day dinner! All crockery and utensils were brand new, a full size fridge freezer was provided, and the user friendly oven worked excellently. We were even supplied with bin bags for both the kitchen and bathroom so we could keep it clean, there was a handy wheelie bin located outside. The living area had a very comfortable L-shaped sofa with blanket, a wide screen television with good selection of channels, a brand new dvd player, even candles on the table. The bedroom was spacious with a clean and comfortable double bed, a spare supply of fresh cotton sheets also provided. The bathroom had a great shower with constant hot water supply and numerous clean towels located in the cupboards. The adjustable heaters made the apartment super warm, there was good lighting and plug socket supply throughout. The apartment idea is great for those wanting a bit of independence whilst on holiday. There was a large supermarket and shopping centre located a 5 minute walk away, offering a good range of fresh food and all other required shopping. The main town with its amenities was a short walk way, very easy to navigate our way around without a car, a great range of shops and restaurants on offer. On departure reception printed off our boarding cards and booked us a taxi, super service. We met 3 different members of staff during our stay, all English speaking, friendly and very helpful - they were there day and night and always with a smile. They gave us recommendations on day trips, restaurants etc. They booked us on a very successful northern lights trip, an amazing experience. We even saw the northern lights from our front door one evening. All in all we cannot fault this lovely little hotel, we had a fantastic stay and will definately return. We have stayed in many places over the years and this is certainly one of the best. Thank you Viking Hotell for the best holiday we have ever had, you really made it special for us!
