They offered us packed breakfast for the morning flight, which was good actually. But it was quite minimal.
We stayed there one night as we had to catch the morning flight. Our room was very good with direct view of the cathedral. Staff was very helpful, and the rooms cosy, comfortable and clean

We were looking forward to using the sauna included in our stay, however we found it was out of use when we stayed - very disappointing. We requested a double bed as this was our honeymoon, but found we had two separate single beds instead. The room very very cramped and had too much furniture in for it's size, hardly any space to move around in at all!
We loved the location of this hotel, right outside the shopping centre, and only a 15 minute walk to the Fjord with incredible views. The restaurant was lovely, breakfast was great and the staff were nice too! The view from our room was amazing, and it was right outside the BEST swimming pool we have EVER been to!! (definitely go there!)

The cot we asked for for our infant was a long time in coming to the room, but it did eventually arrive.
Friendly staff. Lovely decor in dining areas and sense of space in entrance hall. Bed was particularly comfortable. Good breakfast.

Scandic has changed the old hotel Rica in a dirty and fast-food-ish like hotel. The price is to high for the quality Scandic Alta can offer. Poor breakfast, dirty cutlery and lazy service people. Rooms with no water boiling cattle. Bad receptionist service and overall disappointing experience.
Jeg likte ingenting!

I love the breakfast. It's so good!

The fact that coffee facilities were not available in every room. Plus dragging luggage up those steps is not helpful.
The breakfast. The views from the 6th floor.

Very modern hotel situated in the center of Alta. Spacious room and really comfortable. Staff always ready to help and to listen the request of the guest. Breakfast very good for my opinion.

(Outside) parking lot in front of hotel was costly for the evening, but an equally convenient lot behind the hotel was free.
Excellent restaurant - especially for breakfast

Woman at the reception was not friendly. Didn't even look at us before "taking" the money. After us came an older couple and that same receptionist was really friendly for them. So they obviously did not like younger travellers. Coffee at the breakfast was like washing water.
Breakfast was ok. Even many of the food were really salty. But fresh fruits and berries were a plus.

Expensive and you have to pay around 10 euro per day for parking. Alta as a city is not very special as it has no flavor or character.
Easy to find. Near the new shopping center and cathedral. Modern and beautiful decoration. Great bathroom. Great breakfast.

No free parking (free only between 5 pm until 10 am).
Breakfast was good, location in the middle of the city

The rooms tend to be overheated, and you cannot open the windows. The hotel is decorated in a modern style but rather plastic and lacking in personality, with no reference to the famous rock carvings in the decor.
This hotel is located right near the bus station in Alta, and therefore handy if you are travelling between cities by bus. It is also good if you wish to visit the Alta Museum and associated petroglyphs: there is no hotel near the museum, but you can easily get a bus there and back from the bus station (ask the Rica staff for a timetable. The new church is also right outside the front door of the Rica. In addition, the hotel has an excellent buffet breakfast.

was checked into the wrong type of room, had to move about 4 times, wasted 3 hrs waiting for room to be prepared. One room had a glass full of cigarettes and empty cigarette packets...seems to be very difficult to have a double bed.
staff very good, facilities very good

For me personally, there is Nothing to Dislike.
The Front desk staff, the location, the food, the consistency between Rica Hotels. I use Rica in Alta, Gardermoen and in Oslo during my frequent trips. Does Rice have a reward program?

We were there at the beginning and the end of our trip through Finnmark. The second time had a (pricey) corner room with a spectacular view. We imagined being there for the dog sled race in winter and watching the finish line activity through the window sitting in the very comfortable chairs! Mattresses were so good that we checked the brand name so as to buy them for our own home.
