        • Older travelers

          There is nothing I remember with pleasure from this hotel.

          Dinigroom crowded with busloads of tourists. The hotel is situated in the town center which consists (almost) of a mall. Nothing much to do or to look at nearby the hotel.

          Not many hotels to choose from in Alta. Like all hotels in Norway, they are expensive compared to UK/Europe. That said, this hotel was very convenient being in the centre of town. The breakfast spread was excellent and available from 6am, so it was possible to eat before going to the airport for a 7.30am flight! Staff were very friendly. Rooms were reasonable size and comfortable.

          We booked two rooms expecting them to be adjacent as we were a family group. On arrival we found that our two rooms were on different floors. This was a minor issue. Maybe we should have requested adjacent rooms at booking? The bathrooms were a little dated. A decent shower cubicle would have been better than the shower over the bath.

          Very clean and comfortable modern hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Good food. Complimentary hot drinks available free in reception. Not cheap, but that is mainly due to the current exchange rate. Separate heating thermostats in the bathroom and the room, not seen that before. Very close to shops, buses etc.
