Stayed one night. Close to the airport. Got a sea facing room. Rooms are quite spacious and well maintained. Reception was helpful in guiding us and ordering a cab. Quite central with restaurants and a spar nearby. Didn't see a kettle in the room; which was a bit strange for a renowned hotel as this.

We stayed one night in a clean comfortable room on the first floor, at the rear of the hotel and had a good night's sleep The following morning the breakfast was excellent and had all that we wanted. Receptionists were excellent with advice and ordering taxis. We would stay again if we're ever in Bodø.

I stay at Scandic Bodø for every crew change going home from work, because it's the preferred hotel for our travel agency, and I was very pleased to find that they are now refurbishing the rooms at this ageing hotel. During my last visit in January 2017 I was given a brand new room. Nice decor and comfortable bed, and...

This is not Scandic's flagship hotel in Bodø, but rooms are comfortable. Very comfortable bed. But we forewarned: The hotel is on a busy street in the city centre, and I was kept awake by the blaring noise from a nearby nightclub. Also, I impressed on the staff when checking in that my baggage had been lost en route to...

I had a one night stay here in a single bed room. The room was fine and updated, tiles in the bathroom and wooden floor in the main room. My colleague got a similar room though outdated compared to mine. There was no coffee maker in the room. Overall the hotel looks a bit outdated. Breakfast was well above average,...

Amazing place. It's not cheep but you know where the money went. The staff is friendly and the guest are too. Only negative is the parking situation. We got a ticket. Not the hotels fault but if you bring a car figure it out before it cost you $$$$. The bar on 17 has the best view of the northern...

We stayed overnight on our way to the Lofoten Islands. The receptionist allowed us to keep our bikes in the store room overnight, and breakfast next morning was excellent, plenty of variety and we appreciated the vegetarian and vegan choices. Price was very reasonable, our only gripe was that the mattresses were cheap foam and rather too soft for us...

Cheap, but if the breakfast means something the money saved are not enough. You may have one tiny strip of bacon per fried egg you eat. You don't like eggs? Tough. You allergic? Tough. If you are vegan and shall only sleep cheaply one night, not quite in city centre, this is the hotel for you.
