  • Couple

    The rooms were in immaculate condition, in terms of both decor and cleanliness. Location is perfect. Very quiet, but ideally located near the centre of town. Price is competitive for a quality hotel in Norway.

    They my pregnant wife and I the smallest room in the hotel, and my elderly parents a room furthest from the lift and opposite a construction site where they were installing a new lift shaft.

    Good location. Nice hotel with excellent breakfast.

    Our hotelroom was situated directly above the hotelbar. Until closing time of the bar (around 1 am) we could hear the music which was a bit annoying

  • Single
    10.0

    Clean, comfortable and luxurious. Staff was very good and friendly. The room was very nice and very modern. Great location and very convenient. Nice atmosphere.

    The food in the restaurant was not very good. However, there are very good restaurants in the near vicinity.

  • 7.8

    Rooms a better size than many Norwegian hotels. Good selection at Breakfast

  • 5.0

    The take away breakfast we were given was the only good thing!

    Shower door was broken and it appeared quite an effort to have it fixed. We were in an adjoining room with a lot of unsupervised kids next door bouncing balls off the door until midnight. Not good when you have to be up at 5:00am to catch a boat!

  • 7.0

    Generally ok

    Bacon hard. Dripping wet.

  • 10.0

    Comfy bed, fantastic staff.

  • 6.2

    The decor of the hotel is very charming. The breakfast was very nice and breakfast staff very friendly. The bed was very comfortable. The location is convenient to the city centre but lacks a view

    Unfortunately we were there on the 16th of May and there was a lot of noise from other guests partying and leaving trash outside their doors. The reception staff were not very warm and accommodating

  • 8.8

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good, wide selection of food to suit everyone. Reception area was nicely decorated and there was room to sit around and people watch.

    Room was quite small. Cleaner a bit noisy at 8.30am. Road outside hotel busy but it's a town so you expect that.

  • 9.2

    Superb breakfast, open long hours on weekend. Fresh fruit, huge selection of food, made to order omelet. Location is excellent. Fancy lobby design with comfy sofas. Location is excellent, next to the train station, ferry port, main pedestrian street.

    Nothing particular. Hotel is large, built into several old buildings and courtyard, with weird connections of corridors and lifts that open from unexpected sides. No problem after you learn the way to your room :)

  • 10.0

    Breakfast was excellent. Bed super comfy. Good location. Very good service.

  • 10.0

    A fine hotel with every amenity. Sumptuous breakfast with fresh local delicacies. Warm and comfortable bedroom in winter.

  • 9.6

    Excellent standard of décor and facilities & friendly, helpful staff.

    The lift wasn't working for a day.

  • 9.2

    Location is wonderful. Beautiful building.

    Parking garage works best for a compact vehicle.

  • 4.6

    The hotel is centrally located. But so are other nearby hotels. Go elsewhere. Breakfast deserves a mention and was really good.

    This hotel operates a room scam. I ordered a family room with a bathtub as pictured in Booked.net. Recieved a much smaller room (probably regular double room) without bathtub. Reception unable/unwilling to correct mistake and offered no form of compensation. In addition the staff was not warm and welcoming, the weather strips on the shower door was half loose and had been for some time. The shower soap dispenser fell apart unless firmly operated with both hands. The "view" was to a small dirty roof fully enclosed by the hotel building. Dark gloomy room. In general, bad service, bad maintenance, charges for better rooms than they deliver.
