“Sentral and good”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for 1 night while on business.
The chain is a good Norwegian chain but it does have a wide range on standards. Even though they say they are simular. This hotel is very nice and has nice rooms. Maybe on the small side but very clean.

The facilities are very good. Large reception with very friendly and helpful staff.
Large restaurant and several bar/cafe areas.

I would have no problems staying here again.

The breakfast had variety and was good. The staff was friendly enough . the Junior suites were good , the location too - right opposite the newly designed modern Church The Hotel was comfortable . The Bar looked a little stark and the Restaurant seemed too big and felt somewhat like a character less hall. Over all the Hotel especially the Suites were very good

Stayed 2 nights up here with Ice Hotel sandwiched in between. Fairly basic but clean & tidy. Breakfast very good with wide range of hot and cold dishes. Reception staff helpful when I lost glasses but couldn't locate them.
Coffee & tea available in reception although they kept pulling shutter down on it so not much good as they haven't facilities in room.
Free wi fi in rooms.
It's a central pick up point for tours. Glod NL chasing tour really good.
Nearby small shopping centre & modern church.
Taxis really expensive but few options.

Room Tip: Doesn't seem much difference between them

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in this hotel. It was very clean, comfortable and we loved the larger size bathroom with heated tiles. It was the perfect spot to base ourselves for activities such as hunting the northern lights and dog sledding where our tour guides easily picked us up and dropped us off.

The staff was friendly and the buffet breakfast was top quality with a wide range of excellent selections. Only minor issue if I had to pick something was the noise (band and chatter) coming from the bar downstairs (we were on the 3rd level). This was only minor and did not stop us from having a good comfortable sleep.

We stayed here for one night only on a driving trip up the coast.
We found the parking convenient and were warmly welcomed to the hotel. The room, dining room and bar were all good. We thought the dinner buffet was excellent value and thoroughly enjoyable. Breakfast was excellent too.

Best feature is a great breakfast - many different types of food to choose from. Also dinner was good. Some rooms have a view to the Arctic Sea. Also handy is the new shopping center Amfi right next door with a variety of stores- also a wine store. Fairly expensive but so is whole Norway ;)

Room Tip: some rooms have views to the Arctic sea

The hotel has a great location in the city center, with a mall and som restaurants nearby. The room was nice, very clean and had a good size. Free wifi. There was som noise at night and I could hear the TV from the room next door. Breakfast and lunch buffet was very nice, and the staff made sandwiches for those of us who didn't have time to stay for lunch. Great dinner!
