There ain't that many hotels to choose from in Alta, but this sure is a good choice. Newly renovated rooms (Not all of them, but the major I think). Good wifi and the breakfast was ok +. The hotel is located right next to the Northern lights cathedral. All the staff was a bit... Careless?

Location great, easy to find. Good breakfast, the room a little bit small and lack of personality.
Being the first time in Alta, I would have appriciated more information about the local attractions in the room.

Sorry to say but we did not enjoy staying at this hotel at all. No shampoo / conditioner, no lotion, no washcloth, no tissue in the bathroom. The room was clean but small and bed was not comfortable. Breakfast buffet was awful--no eggs. Can not recommend a stay here.

Scandic Alta is a fair hotel in the city center next to several restaurants and grocery stores. Rooms are small and a bit outdated. We asked for the swimming pool but were told that it was closed on Sunday! Breakfast was not at the level we expected, but most amazingly.... we had to pay to park the car outside the hotel in an open space!

We enjoyed this hotel. It is situated beside a mall and the beautiful Arctic Church. The rooms are a reasonable size for a Scandic with the usual minimal amenities. We are comfortable none the less. The buffet dinner was really good.
