The only hotel in a little village by the fjord. Friendly service and all right breakfast. We did not mind that the lobby of the hotel was under renovation. Nor that the double room was so tiny that two persons could not pass each other. Nor that our 2nd floor room (nr 209) window faced the entrance roof instead of providing "a beautiful view available from many of the rooms". The only purpose of our overnight stay was to have a proper all night sleep. What we got was twin beds both with outworn, soft and uneven mattresses. The back-killer mattresses were accompanied with big and even bigger neck-killer pillows. In addition the room was too warm (no AC). We ended up tossing and turning, getting up and lying down, opening and closing the window (not to let the mosquitoes in) for better part of the night instead of the very much needed sleep. If proper beds, the hotel would deserve an average rating.

I read reviews before going and I can not believe the bad reviews the hotel has received. I told the receptionist I have come for a little 24 hour break to get some rest and I was given a lovely little suite with a sitting area and desk in one room and a separate bedroom with a large, comfortable double bed and enormous soft pillows, and the bathroom was lovely, big and newly refurbished. The suite was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and had a kettle and coffee / tea and a small fridge. I only had breakfast at the hotel which was lovely and had everything you could ask for. I received excellent service from the staff throughout my stay and I got what I came for - a lovely break from a busy life.

The only way to avoid this hotel, is to avoid Vadsø, and that would be the best idea. Rooms are terribly small, and a strange feature is that the toilets are placed too close to the wall to secure comfortable usage of the said equipment. Seems like this applies to all the rooms.

Dear Jørund, thank your for reveiw. I'm very sorry that you was not pleased with your stay at our hotel. You are right that we have some small rooms. Nevertheless we are working very hard to maintain a high standard, this is also a reason why we this year will renovate most of our rooms.

If you one day decide that you would come back to Vadsø and our hotel, you are most welcome. Please send me an email so I could upgrade your rom. My email: anita.svortevik@scandichotels.com.

All the best

I spent 3 days at this hotell on a business trip. As far as I am concerned this is the only place to stay in Vadsø as long as you don't live here. The hotell was refurbished not long ago and is relative modern with everything you need like wifi and tv. The food is good, the breakfast espescially. I even tried the restaurant and just loved "Fish & chips ala Vadsø". Fried cod tunge and pommes frites, very good! The staff is friendly and will help you with the most. Recomended for a stay in eastern Finnmark.
