“Basic hotel choice ...”
Reviewed 22 August 2006

The hotel is located close to the ferry / boat terminal (useful if you arrive from/headed to Bodo or on the Hurtigruten), but about a 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. The location seems to be a quasi-industrial area (though the newest attraction- Magic Ice has opened just behind it), so while the views/atmosphere aren't great, rooms are rather large (by Scandinavian standards) and comfortable with free internet access / free tea &coffee (in the lobby) thrown in.
OK for a short stay in Svolvaer (which is anyway usually a hop off point to /from the mainland - the "true" Lofoten experience is a rorbu stay in a fishing village like A or Henningsvaer) - there's not much to do in this town expect a visit to the Trollfjord. The only "superior" accomodation choice worth checking appears to be the Rica (on a small island across a bridge from town), but it's usually fully booked and relatively more expensive.

Reviewed 31 May 2005

Our room was large and clean but had a view of a canal and a factory. It also did not have adequate curtains in the 'Land of the Midnight Sun.' On the other hand, the lobby featured free internet access and coffee or tea all day (not insignificant in a country where a cup of coffee can easily cost $5 or $6). The breakfast was quite good, even by Norwegian standards. The hotel's chinese restaurant is probably best avoided since there are much better places to eat in town for similar prices.

The hotel is located conveniently for people arriving by boat and only a short walk from the center of town. That being said, it is in an 'industrial area' where fish smells are not uncommon.
