        the booking and transfer to the winter activities was good organised from hotel, location was perfect, the transfer to the airport is in front of the hotel

        quite expensive for the comforts that offers, the breakfast was very poor comparing with other rica hotels in norway

        • Average rating
      • Family with children

        The quiet atmosphere and not persuasive service has liked.

        Any not clear 30 % plus to the basic payment of number(room)

      • Older travelers

        Comfortable and clean hotel with a good restaurant and very friendly and helpful staff.Included breakfast was good. The hotel was a convenient base for the start of the Hurtigruten cruise.

        great wifi service, helpful staff

        Would have liked tea/coffee available in my room or free of charge (minimal fee), not 25 Kroner and have to go to restaurant to get.

      • Older travelers

        A homely atmosphere and very comfortable.

        Because of a flight fault on our aircraft from Oslo we arrived at around 11.00pm. A sandwich or some small meal would have been appreciated.

      • Family with children

        We arrived early, and, while our room was not ready, we were able to have coffee, fruit, and access to free internet in the lounge while we waited. It was a very kind service, especially as it was very cold outside.

        it was a very good position for what we wanted. We were using it as a base prior to going on a cruise of the fjords.

        The best breakfast ever!!

        Evening receptionist was so cold that she stole the heart of the hotel. Even the breakfast couldn't save it.

        Proximity of the center

        Swimming pool and sauna in maintenance! that is a shame during this touristical period.

        Kirkenes itself is a very unromantic/ not worth seeing city(due to destruction in wwii), but starting point for Hurtigruten ships- therefore You have to spent a night there! For this purpose Rica arctic was perfect, very nice rooms!! Eva Germany

        The pool was not in good condition

      • Older travelers

        Location is very good, on the main square and a stop of the airport bus and Hurtigruten shuttle. Breakfast was excellent. Free wifi very good. There are other facilities such as a small indoor pool, sauna, free hot drinks, but I didn't use those.

        The hotel is a bit worn in places but no big problem.

        Excellent hotel, breakfast staff very and choices very good. Bed not hard enough for me, but that is personal. Good location and don't add a % to any excursions that are booked. Airport bus stops right outside the door. Mini bar prices are cheaper Than the convenience store!!!
