The location is also great if you want to live in the sentre of Bodø but want to avoid some of the city noice. I will definitely...

After staying at Scandic Havet (good, but too expensive) and Skagen (too simple), this is my new favorite hotel in Bodø. Very pleasant service, very nice room (free upgrade) and really excellent breakfast. All this at an acceptable price. Will definitely stay here on my next visit to Bodø as well.

super breakfast ! Friendly staff, nice room - some disturbing noise from children playing in the staircase at night, probably a combination of too much sugar and the butterflies for the upcoming football cup they where attending...Excellent view to the west..and it will get better if you move up..

I have stayed in this hotel several times before, but this time it was even better. The hotel has a new breakfast restaurant, with calm and nice atmosphere. The breakfast was perfect, with a lot to choose from, fresh fruit and vegetables, small shots of smoothies and juces, but also lots of warm temptations, and a wide range of meat,...

I went to see my son who lives in Bodo and at the same time went to see a concert in the local concert hall. The hotel faces out onto the marina and the reception area is based around a high Atrium.

This started like a fairy tale (I usually enjoy staying at Thon hotels). The location of the hotel is just fantastic, nearby the sea. You have a direct view on the harbor.

Dear franckor2015 Thank you for taking time to give us this review. We truly appreciate it. The hotel does not have AC, only regular ventilation. This is regulated by the outside temperature, and it varies by 0.5 degrees. There is a thermostatic oven in each guestroom, and this can be regulated by our guest. I am really sorry that our...

The hotel has a lovely location at the seafront overlooking the harbour. The staff are friendly, the hotel is clean and modern, no surprises. Breakfast is nice, it actually serves proper freshly squeezed orange juice, although the coffee is just ordinary. My bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet.

2 main downsides for me : first no free parking for guests (and city parking on the street is about 4$/hour... but free from 6pm to 8am). Second if you want a view on the harbour (what I really recommend!), you have to pay -a lot- more. Normal rooms have view on the next building wall or on a parking....
