You might think that the hot water running out as you get ready to rinse off - and having to rinse off with seriously arctic cold water - in a town inside the arctic circle - would make one give someplace a 0-star review You would be WRONG As I stood stuck and freezing in the bathroom, my husband found an emergency number to call. And even in my freezing state, in less time than it took me to catch up - they had found a lady who could come by for such emergencies, moved us to a different (and bigger, gorgeous) apartment/room and with apologies. So much service can only mean 5 stars The place can seem basic - mainly hand soap, towels, linens in the bathroom and bedroom. But for families or groups - the kitchen is fully stocked. There’s a huge fridge to stock up, and if you’re into the fishing activities, you just have to step out of your room. Everything else (including a cooler to store your haul) is provided. Go here. Whether you’re like us visiting in the winter (but we are here the same time as a huge concert by a famous Norwegian group, so all hotels in Bodo were sold out - and frankly, what a stroke of luck that was in the end!!!) or into the activities this place is known for - this place is amazing There’s a grocery shop about 1.5 km away for anything you could need (that actually includes any fishing lures 🙂🙂) and cafes in the town we plan to explore soon. Saltstraumen Brygge would be my recommendation for the future though - simply for the people here who keep it simple but keep it perfect and warm and amazing …
Just come back from staying here for a week. Super friendly staff and easy no fuss accommodation. From the start nothing is too much trouble Kirt and his team are super helpful and speak excellent English. We had room 12 which is small but great view , warm and clean all you need for your stay. There are other bigger options available . I would highly recommend a stay here for shorter or longer stays whether you fish or dont the setting is great. There is a handy petrol station and supermarket just over the bridge which has decent long opening hours. Already looking at next visit thanks to the team.
Thought it would be in the middle of nowhere and a bad place to stay, but it is very nice. Huge apartments, very clean and new furniture. The lake view is a nice greeting in the morning and the staff is friendly.
Well, the title says it all. The missing towels were really annoying - this should not happen - unfortunately we arrived in the middle of the night with self-check-in, so there were no options to place a complaint. Good: check-in was possible outside normal check-in times! Very good and comfortable beds. Unfortunately noisy fridge just beside the bed. Expensive for what you get. View? This box is certainly checked!
Had a weeks shore fishing here in feb 18, Ideal accommodation location, fairly basic but clean, tidy and comfortable. Superb location! Had one issue when staying here in that our apartment had an induction hop fitted but no pans that were suitable for use on an induction hob. Not sure how this happened but it was quickly sorted by the host Kurt. Kurt was generally a very helpful and friendly host throughout our stay. The fishing wasn't as good as we had expected but we all still caught personal best fish. As a group we have already booked again for 2019!
