Reviewed 12 October 2015

The location was convenient, staff friendly and knowledgeable about the area and very helpful. The best part was the amazing breakfast spread. It was the best spread I have ever seen. The location is good and well connected. The hotel staff really knew the area well and gave excellent tips on what to do in Alta.

I stayed here one night in september. They are renovating the rooms at the hotel, and I was lucky to get a new room. It was very nice for me, but some might think it is a littlebit small. What did impress me was the very very good breakfast with lots of healthy choice. If you are going to stay...

Efficient and friendly check in. Parking opposite the hotel is free until 10.00. We passed through Alta on our way to Nordkapp. We stayed at the Thon Hotel the first night and on the way back we stayed at the Scandic and I preferred the Scandic. The rooms were good size and the restaurant had a full menu with great...

This is a well located hotel close to all the shops, ATM's and restaurants. It looks modern. It is clean, comfortable and the room is of average size. The breakfast is average though - and service could be a bit faster. I would stay at this hotel again.

Not a bad place, centrally located with good size rooms and bathroom. Would have expected coffee making facility in room and the bar to be open before 7pm in the evening. Little things like a good service mentality in the restaurant and front desk were lacking. Looked like front desk were taking phone bookings as well as front desk duties.

We booked two rooms at this hotel through booking.com, as a part of our summer holidays up north. Being a "Scandic friend" I actually expected to be welcomed better than we experienced.
