I was pleasantly surprised when I finally got into my room (I couldn't find it at first because there was no number on that particular door.)

As with their colleagues in Bodö, it seems that the whole crew decided to be smiling at you and be in a good mood. The rooms are quiet and quite big, We could rent a parking for an adequate fee, and within 10 minutes you can be in the historical centre. The food was rather good, and the buffet in... More

Top: the staff is very friendly and their service is great. If a good bed and a private bathroom does it for you it's allright. But do not expect a luxury hotel even if this one might be the best in town. The hotel sets you back to the seventies. All very basic. A room without a view. Only a... More
