“Ok hotel, but beware the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

The staff is pleasant and helpful, offered us to choose between a Rorbu and standard rooms when we arrived. The rooms have better beds, so we chose them.

The facilities are clean, but could benefit from an aesthetic upgrade, hasn't been refurbished since the 70's. The rooms are simple, but lack hairdryer and other things you would expect. The breakfast is somewhat boring, but the dinner is delicious.

We hadn't checked the price for the rooms though, it turned out to be way more expensive than we expected.

This small hotel, built in wood, is in fact a modest hotel in a town named Havoysund, in the arctic Norway. I have been there three times and, since the very first day, I have enjoyed the warm welcome that the owner gives to anyone who stays there. The hotel is not a luxury one. It is a place where you can sleep, eat, and sometimes step in a local party, as the hotel is the center of the town.
If you look for a nice fishing time in the arctic zone, and then enjoy the lovely people that leaves here in the far north, this is a very clever choice.

First of all, I have doubts if this hotel has something to do with Best Western chain, at least the location on a map and the address is correct, however readers should note that the hotel is located in Havoysund, small village on Havoya island, but NOT in Hammerfest!

Considering the size of the village everything is near: 5-7 min. by walking to food store, "central square" and a museum. The hotel is offering rooms in the main building and special accommodation in the houses on the sea shore mentioned specially for fishermen tourist. Rooms in the shore lodges were small and providing basic amenities, however very clean and quiet! Also they are equipped with kitchenette. Smoking and non-smoking rooms are available. Surprisingly, wireless internet was speedy and free of charge for the guests, but the connection actually was not stable. Finally the staff was very friendly and speaks good English.

There is a restaurant and bar in the main building open till ca .11PM on working days, while on Fridays and Saturdays the bar transforms into a night club for locals and work till 3-4 AM. The menu is quite extensive but expensive though.

It was a surprise but there were no room cleaning and bed sheets changing for the whole week of my stay. Probably this non-cleaning policy applies only to the rooms in the "fishermen lodges".

Enjoy your stay, clean air, boat trips and a Big Fish...catch picturesque landscapes of the Northern Norway and midnight sun in a rapidly changing Arctic weather.
