Nice hotel and great breakafast. Otherwise the personnel were rude, there was no sauna at the hotel (even all the pages says there is), and there is no A/C in the room. So if it happens to be warm weather, it's impossible to sleep. I visited many Scandic-hotels in my trip around the scandinavia, and none of them had A/C. Many other and cheaper hotels did. From now on, I'm forced to avoid Scandic-hotels at least the summertime.

I have visited this hotel several times. It is sentrally situated in walking distance from Alta town centre, with shopping centres, restaurants and swimming pool. Next to the hotel is also the Nortern Lights cathedral - a modern architectural gem. My room during this visit had a balcony and a beautiful view of the cathedral with the mountains as a backdrop. The personel of the reception and the kitchen provided exellent service. Our group had preoreder dinner, but forgotten to order a vegetarian meal for one person. In ten minutes the ktichen came up with a vegetarian dish anyway.

Big and comfortable beds for older children. Room is bigger than I am used to have in other hotels for my family. Really good breakfast with children friendly food. I had some problem finding room online and got help right away through telefone.

I stay here every time I am in Alta for work. Normally the service is very good and the rooms are clean and tidy with occasional upgrades for being a valued customer. Breakfasts have a good choice and well prepared food, however if your there on a relaxing vacation dont expect to wake up a little late as you will miss this due to ending at 9:30am. I often arrive late and am wanting something to eat and use my vouchers however sometimes when arriving they do not always have sandwiches in the small shop, which is a shame as they do say they are always available. last thing is that depending on the staff with depend on the service and what is charged/allowed to take on the given vouchers. If you will be able to stay in Scandic hotels around and in future its worth becoming a memeber as you get a lot of good benefits from stage 1.

Lovely hotel in a beautiful and central location. Great staff, clean room (bit on the small side and no bath but you can upgrade if the fancy takes you). Loads of choice at breakfast. Covid safety is taken very seriously

The worst experience ever. They gave us chicken that was raw. While cutting it you could see the blow getting out of it. We asked the waitress if there was something else and she didn’t even answer. I had to call her more than twice and everting she went like “I have to check with the chef”. Don’t even go there. I won’t never get back.

Dear piccste Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am truly sorry for the experience you had visiting our restaurant. This is not the way we treat our guests. I will take this review to my F&B department. We will learn from this and do better in the future. Again we apologize. Have a nice day and maybe we can show you sometime in the future that we can do so much better than this. Best regards Jørn T GM Scandic Alta

Nice hotel offering 20 % discount on swimming pool and saunas next door. The breakfast is one of the best I've seen. Parking was 100 NOK for one day. Close to all the restaurants and shopping area of Alta. About 4,5 km from the Alta museum. Great location and easy to find.
