We stayed here one night in July. Probably because we had a dog, we stayed in a basic standard room, which was a little bit old fashioned and shabby but good enough for one night. And a very good rate for night in the middle of summer. Room had a bad view into the back of hotel but so it...

At Scandic you know what to expect: Clean efficient rooms. Efficient staff, nice people. Sleeping comfort. The breakfast is perfect and opened at 06.00 so we could a bite before taking the boat to Finnsnes (departing at 07.00). Maybe I could do without the "IKEA feeling": No atmosphere, really, but more than good enough for one night. And a very...

Needed a hotel reasonably near to Evenes airport. Centrally located. Large but basic room. Room had a bad view into the back of hotel service area. WiFi okay. Parking on street but just round the corner and free after 15.00hrs. Breakfast was good with a lot of choice. 40minute drive to Evenes airport the next day. OK for x1 night...

We stayed here one night. Our room was clean, spacious and modern and looked towards the harbour. It contained all the usual amenities, including tea and coffee making facilities. The reception staff were friendly and helpful, suggesting places to eat as the hotel did not serve dinner. This was a drawback as we had arrived during the evening and had...

Stayed overnight in Harstad for business and had a good basic experience at the Scandic. It wasn't 5 star service or room quality, but it was all modern, clean and in working order so no complaints! Good hanging space in the room, and bathroom was nicely done in a modern style. Only issue was trying to find a plug socket...

We had our company Christmas party at this hotel as a all inclusive experience, overnighting since we live a fair bit away. I got a good room and can not complain about anything there, but some of my colleagues got less attractive rooms. It is a rather old hotel so some rooms are a bit worn. The main event was...

We only had an overnight here and as it was a late arrival we didn't test out any evening food options. The hotel was nice and easy to find and check in quick & efficient. The car park was quite small and full so we had to opt for parking round the corner but that had plenty of space and...

We stayed in this hotel to have a short drive to the Evenes airport the next morning after exploring the Lofoten. The hotel was a different brand before and only part of the hotel seems to be renovated. The hotel didn't seem sold out, but I guess if you pay the lowest available price you get the lowest quality. Meaning...

“Ask for a corner top floor room looking towards the harbour.”

“The rooms with a sea view face a night club, so could be noisy. Choose a room facing the back of the hotel to ensure a good night's sleep,”

“Ask for a hairdryer. If you want to travel to the airport take a flybuss or take a fly taxi (Harstad taxi) for a fixed price - 390Kr.”
