The room was small but tastefully decorated. Our room was on second floor with no elevator so we just pulled overnight things from our larger suitcases and carried up small bags. Breakfast had a nice selection. Food available in the restaurant in the evening. We stayed here as it is convenient to being ready to hike on the Nigardsbreen (glacier)... More

We stayed two nights at the Jostedal Hotel in the 2 room apartment with our 2 kids. While the interior was very basic, the apartment was really spacious with a living room, kitchen and two bedrooms. Everything was clean, the staff was really friendly and it is situated in a very nice setting and located only 5 mins from the... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The owner, Laila was extremely friendly and helpful. She even went out of her way to get us some snow shoes so that we could hike to the glacier. She's also an amazing cook-the food in the restaurant was delicious and much needed after a long hike. Perfect location for a bit... More

Our family loved this place. Simple, but clean and felt authentic. The ladies who run it, wish I could remember their names, were incredibly helpful and friendly. It's right next to the River Pig white water rafting and a great base for trips to Nigardsbreen and Jostedalsbreen. In August, after an exhausting excursion up a glacier or a mountain, it... More

This hotel was the perfect stay for our glacier & kayak tour. We stayed two nights and had a very pleasant stay. The room was big enough to accommodate us three (2 adults, one 8 year old daughter) and it was all very clean. The restaurant is also very good, Norwegian kitchen with very nice and helpful staff. The breakfast... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at this small family-run hotel. This is not a luxury hotel, but it offers all the creature comforts one needs to prepare for a glacier hike: a good night's sleep and a decent dinner and breakfast. The rooms are basic, but ours was well maintained. This is a hotel for the outdoor-nature tourist looking... More

My friends and I stayed here last week when we had booked to go Glacier walking. It was a comfortable hotel and very quaint, however the rooms were very basic and dated...like it hadn't been re-decorated since the 70's. Some of my friends showers were vinyl from wall to floor while others were tiled. So the decor was not consistent.... More
