The hotel, previously a Radisson SAS hotel, is located close to city center and the Sami park. The hotel offers large, comfortable rooms, free wifi and a good breakfast buffet. The Storgammen restaurant, a short walk from the hotel, is a interesting restaurant with atmosphere. They serve traditional food from the region and the prices are on the high side,... More

The hotel is very nice but I expected more for the price. The rooms are quite small and basic, but the curtains really darken the room and the beds are extremely comfortable. I just wish we had a bath. And we really missed a water cooker/boiler to make tea. I have travelled all over the world and in almost all... More

I had a great stay of one night and I'd love to go back again. The sauna is the best one I've been into in a long time! WiFi was easy and consistent, the breakfast was excellent and the room itself really nice. I enjoyed how close the hotel was to the parliament, cultural centre and other attractions. I'd thoroughly... More

Stayed for one night with my family. Helpful and welcoming staff. Very nice room for four with an extra bed. Good size room, good beds and excellent breakfast. Compared to the cabins available in the area this is top value. Highly recommended!

Rooms are reasonable for the price, bed was comfortable, breakfast was included in the tariff, which a lot of hotels in Australia could take note of😡, service was sporadic, acceptable most of the time but lacking at other times? Over all it is a nice hotel 😄

Lovely staff, lovely lounge area to watch sport and have a cold beer. Nice room, nice amenities and attentive staff. Room was clean, decent size bathroom and warm which is essential when 15 below! They have changed their name from Rica to Scandic. Which was confusing at first but all good. Love the wooden decor which made it warm and... More

Just the right soft bed and clean room to end the day from a long bus ride. The hotel is cosy with well-appointed decor of Sami designs. Staff are helpful, but the only sour note was no hot breakfast and they run out of my favourite red smoothie drink!
