The Hotel Rica is situated on the hill above the town, about a 10 minute walk from the town center. We stayed overnight prior to boarding the southbound Hurtigruten Cruise. The local bus from the airport and to the Hurtigruten cruise stops at the hotel. This was the original tourist hotel in Kirkenes built in 1956 with a view over the town below. The room was clean and comfortable and even had a full size bath in the bathroom. We borrowed bikes and cycled around the lakeside pathways that are used for snow trails in the winter time. The hotel also had an excellent breakfast buffet so all in all it was old but a good. The hotel had only just re-opened for the summer season so the staff outnumbered guests when we were there.
