1960's Timewarp Boutique Hotel. Very friendly, very nice and run by a highly enthusiastic young Norwegian couple. Spartan rooms with a fantastic views. Wholesome homemade Norwegian food with good wines and pleasant, friendly, service. We had a great time and will come back again. Highly recommended with great architectural details, furniture and design. Grab the book on Grung's design as... More

Dear Onpiste, Thank you for your nice feedback. We appreciate the hints regarding the fireplace (sometimes its easier to spot these details when guests like you give us a friendly reminder of ways to improve:) The rubbish skip will be removed when our new building is 100% complete (there are some details left that will be finished within a couple...

The hotel is actually a power facility. We had the "suite " which was a joke if you compare it to suites in different hotels. The restaurant, surprisingly, provided good food. It really caters to the employees of the power facility. Find another place to spend the night.

Dear Monvan, Thank you for your review. Energihotellet is a concept-hotel, half of the village of Nesflaten was designed in the 60s by famed norwegian architect Geir Grung because of a hydro-power station. The hotel was build in the 60s as a personal hotel for the management of the hydro-station company. The architectural style can be described as functionalistic and... More

The hotel is sympathetically set into the hillside, full of beautiful (if you like 50's style) furniture and surrounded by trees. Whilst minimalist in style, it offers all the comforts you might need. The floor to ceiling windows in our room offered expansive views of the fjord and surrounding countryside. Hotel guests have (in summer months) use of a small,... More

This hotel is different from what you expect to find in Suldal. It appears to have been built as accommodation for workers and visitors to the Hydroelectric energy company situated at Nesflaten. It is held in a minimalistic and plain décor favoured in Scandinavian design in the 60s and 70s and will appear nostalgic to some people. The bedroom and... More

I booked this hotel, for one night, as a stop-over during a month-long road trip around Scandinavia. The hotel itself was the main reason for the reservation. It is a fabulous 1960s one-off design!!!!!!!!!! I gather it was originally built for the 'bosses' of the hydro-electric facility. It is a small, low build with many delightful design features and perfect... More

A very special hotel, indeed, with a special history as well. The former canteen for the work force at a hydro-power plant in late 60-ies has successfully been turned into a small hotel. And why not, nature already made a substantial part. If you choose this "back stage door" to Norwegian nature, and you really should, "The Energy hotel" is... More

Suited in one of the most wonderful parts of our world; the Norwegian mountains, this hotel has to be considered extraordinary. Close to nature as it is, it brings serenity to ones soul, and for those among us who are interested in power plants/substations, it brings a little bit awe as well. Most disappointing a welcome though, since the hotel... More

Dear Jonas, Thank you for your review of Energihotellet. Just a clarification regarding our building activity. Energihotellet is a part of an architecture designed by norwegian architect Geir Grung during the 1960s, its been named one of the most important modern architectural buildings in Norway several times. http://www.dagbladet.no/2011/07/19/kultur/arkitektur/offentlig_arkitektur/arkitekturkaring/norges_viktigste_offentlige_bygg/17311827/ The architecture basically has three main "pieces", the power station, the houses...

We stayed in the Energihotellet for our mini honeymoon, lasting just three nights. But what a perfect choice of location / destination for a trip to wind down from an amazing yet exhausting wedding. Our hosts made us feel at home from when we walked into the door of this charming 1960s architectural gem in the beautiful nature surrounding Nesflaten.... More

Energihotellet - "The Energy Hotel" - is a different experience. It was built in the 1960's as accommodation for staff working on the building of the power station. It is unique also in the 60's style, not only the building itself but also also the furniture. The bathrooms are modernised, though (!) The view from the main (top) floor is... More
