    Parking costs (150NOK per day) but so it does anywhere in Bodö.

    The best breakfast ever, but otherwise disppointing.
    • Leisure trip
    • Couple
    • Standard Double Room
    • Stayed 1 night

    We booked a double bed and got 2 beds sliding apart from each other! Extremely uncomfortable, if you are a couple who likes to sleep together. The location is excellent, but we got allocated in a room with a view out in the wall at the back of the hotel, despite the fact that there were not many guests at the hotel. Receptionist was not very helpful and did not really seem to enjoy her work...

    The best breakfast ever! The variety and quality of the food was excellent! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff in the restaurant.

    Good location on waterfront. Comfy beds but room a bit warm for my liking. Staff friendly and helpful, we were able to have a 2pm checkout and the receptionist pointed out places to eat. Good stopping off point if you are getting the ferry to the Lofotens as terminal is only a 5 min drive. Excellent buffet breakfast with lots of choice.
