One of the best scandic
The best hotel on our way up to the north. First time there were sort of separated rooms for us and children (with their private tv!). Breakfast was super, with a wonderful view.

Unexpected vista!
We arrived to catch our cruise boat and were looking for a functional hotel. We were more than pleasantly surprised with the view of the sea, both from the room and the restaurant. Breakfast was an incredible spread with Norwegian specialties. Highly recommended!

Very nice hotel
This was a very nice hotel slightly off the town center. The room was very big, with big windows and a great view. It was also clean and very comfy. Breakfast was wonderful-too many choices to be able to try everything.
