Lonely Planet review
The Rica too is built on a tiny island, above the water and supported by piles. Some rooms have balconies, while room 121 has a hole in the floor so guests in the adjacent room can drop a fishing line directly into the briny. The restaurant (for great harbour views reserve a table in its bow window, shaped like a boat) has attractive lightweight wooden furnishings and does a gargantuan dinner buffet (Nkr295).
Our independent authors have visited Rica Hotel Svolvær and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Svolvær.
