If you arrive by Hurtiguten cruise, this hotel is almost next to where it docks, very convenient. The service at the reception was very friendly and helpful when we enquired about the bus for the next day, they even printed out the schedule for us. Despite having their own restaurant, which is very good, the staff was generous to recommend other options and even showed us how to get there.

The room was very clean, comfortable and functional. Remember to insert your card key to lock the room when you go out since the door does not lock automatically.

I loved the breakfast! The spread was good, with freshly squeezed orange juice, nespresso, good tea selection, pancakes with fish roe, salmon (smoked and grilled), cook-to-order egg station, jars of homemade jam of various berries and fruits, even live piano performance! What an enjoyable way to start the day. Dinner service was very good too.

I would stay here again.

We arrived quite late from the Hurtigruten ferry but a few steps from the quay found us in a splendid and welcoming hotel, with people obviously enjoying it s ambience in the bar and restaurant. We were given a pleasant room looking out of the principal, VERY quiet main square of Svolvaer. The great joy of this room was only apparent in the morning when we opened the curtains on a beautiful day with the low sun shining pinkly on the snow covered mountains which come right to the outskirts of the town.
A first rate breakfast buffet was provided in the fine restaurant with lovely staff constantly on hand topping up the buffet and clearing tables quickly.
Tho only little problem we had was a less than attentive girl called Katherina on reception who re-validated our key cards without looking at or speaking to us while she chatted on her hands free telephone. She needs some training and supervision!
But that was a niggle we had a good stay in a smashing hotel.

Room Tip: We loved our room at the front.

Another wonderful Thon hotel. A great buffet breakfast, lots of variety, fantastic coffee (all types) and pleasant friendly service. Every table has a bottle of local cod liver oil for you to try (it wasn't as bad as you think)! The hotel is very central, staff are helpful and it's spotless.

A good, clean and modern hotel situated a few yards from where the Hurtigruten docks. Restaurant and bar excellent and rooms are warm and well appointed. We did not use the free access to the local gym, which is about 200m from the hotel. Excellent bars and restaurants in the area.
Well worth a visit.

This modern, well-decorated hotel is located in the harbor of Svolvær, within walking distance from the Hurtigruten port, and with an excellent view from almost every room. Just a short walk from most of the attractions, restaurants and pubs/bars, it's an ideal starting point. The restaurant serves great food. The staff are generally friendly. If you are going for a hotel while in Lofoten, it's a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a seafront room in the upper floors.

This hotel is perfectly located in the center of Svolvaer, just a few steps from the port of Hurtigruten. Everything in Svolvaer is within walking distance.
The view from this hotel is just fantastic. The fjord, the mountains and the city, all just outside your window.

A good 4* hotel. Good breakfast and superiour coffee (Nespresso). The ordinary rooms are relatively small. The superior rooms have a breath taking view on the harbour. A very pleasant hotel, with a good restaurant for dinner as well.
