Stayed 3 nights over the weekend, and surprised how good it was considering it is only a 3 start hotel. The rooms were a good size with a big window, the room temperature was excellent and easily controlled. The ensuite was excellent though a little odd in arrangement as the toilet was right by the door, the shower always had...

If you want to sleep after a long day exploring or have an early flight, avoid on a Saturday. Awful sleep because of the ground floor band/club that runs until very very late. We could hear the band very clearly from the room (even lyrics) on the fourth floor, with the bass vibrating the walls. Hotel staff were very unhelpful...

Centrally placed hotel almost in the middle of the main street, newly renovated (not all of the rooms - yet). The breakfast was great, as many other Scandic hotels, with a good supply of fresh fruit, bread and meat. The hotel is clean and trendy, especially in the renovated part of the hotel.

Scandic Alta was our second Scandic Group stay. The hotel is very big, in the middle of a dull city. We only stayed here one night, on our way to Tromsø from the North Cape. I'm not a big fan of cities, but the hotel itself was actually very good. It had pretty rooms, comfortable beds and again an excellent...

The hotel is obvious under construction. Once the Scandic standard has been put through it will end a good hotel. I was unlucky to get one of the old room that where worn out and out of date. Breakfast was good.

The location was convenient, staff friendly and knowledgeable about the area and very helpful. The best part was the amazing breakfast spread. It was the best spread I have ever seen. The location is good and well connected. The hotel staff really knew the area well and gave excellent tips on what to do in Alta.

I stayed here one night in september. They are renovating the rooms at the hotel, and I was lucky to get a new room. It was very nice for me, but some might think it is a littlebit small. What did impress me was the very very good breakfast with lots of healthy choice. If you are going to stay...
