Comfy beds, clean rooms, good showers, great breakfast, but slightly tired decor. We have stayed here twice now at the beginning and end of our trip around northern Scandinavia, the first time in the 'budget rooms' side which is in an attached building next door to the Best Western, and the second time we got a room upgrade to a Best Western room. The budget room was fine, clean and comfy but the building itself seems to have a permanent smell of curry...great if you like curry! However this didn't put us off going back, but the second time our room got upgraded to the Best Western building, which meant a bigger room and newer bathroom and without the smell of cooking all the time. Both rooms were very clean. For both the budget and best western you get the free breakfast, which is brilliant! Loads of variety and it's all really tasty, you can even make your own waffles-yum! The hotel itself is in a pretty good location, particularly for skiing as there is a ski lift opposite the building, it's also great for hiking and we saw quite a few mountain biking routes while we were hiking too. We came in October so we were lucky enough to see the northern lights, and twice we saw them in the car park of the hotel! The staff are really friendly, in particular Greta and Barbara, they both told us some great places to go hiking, sight seeing and to see the northern lights and were really helpful with various other requests too. less

Hello 19flyer91, and thank you for your review.
Best Western Narvik Hotel and Narvik Budget Rooms will now get a total upgrade and we are looking forward to the end result.
You are welcome back, maybe in the winter time? The slopes in Narvikfjellet are just great!
