My first impression was that it was old but at least clean. Retro, that's fine. Convenient location with free parking, and free wifi was also good. Then we had to ask for toilet paper and more towels. The beds were rock hard and lumpy, but not nearly as lumpy as the pillows. It was too stuffy to sleep with the... More

Our room, while average, looked nothing like this picture. The hotel is fairly clean but there are no dark out curtains. There are very few TV stations and although we were not in our room much during the day, at nite we could find little on in English. We were told by one of the staff that owners must pay... More

Stayed one night on a flight layover. This is an adequate hotel for that--my room was a bit small, but quite functional. Room decor was a bit like my grandma's bedroom, but bed was super-comfortable. Wi-Fi was excellent. Breakfast was very nice. Location is good. I arrived at 7 PM, dumped my gear in the room and was able to... More

I had two separate stays in the hotel. First time room was tiny and curtains didn't keep the light out. Second time the room was much bigger but would suggest blackout curtains for those travellers not used to daylight 24 hrs. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good with a good selection of... More

This is all in all a great hotel; close location to the main street and main sightings and very strategic located between the bus lines from and to the airport. The rooms are spacious and clean, but somewhat unfurnished (for 5 persons there was only 1 sofa). The WiFi was reasonably good. As was the breakfast (the waffle iron was... More

This is a nice affordable hotel. Not luxurious but everything's there and works. The room was clean, spacious and even had a balcony and a small kitchen. Furniture was not very new but still in good shape and it gave the place a charm. Small bar at the ground floor for evening drinks. Located just a 5 minutes walk from... More

Lovely hotel located slightly out of the centre but only a 5 minute walk to shops etc. We had a large clean room (upgraded at a reasonable charge with huge balcony from which we saw the Northern Lights every night of our stay) with good bathroom. Smell of sulphur in the shower slightly off putting but this is everywhere -... More

The location of this hotel is excellent and the breakfast is also good. The rooms are pretty basic though and our curtain didn't close properly. Felt a bit run down and drab.The bathroom was tiny with just about enough room for a shower. If you want something that serves solely the purpose for sleeping and you're not looking for anything...

We were looking for a centrally located hotel close to the main drag but also convenient for the many driving day trips we took. Fosshotel Baron is very convenient to the major highway and a short walk to the main street where all the shops and bars are. It was very easy to get around to all of the sights... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in May 14. The hotel is located about 5 mins away from the main shopping street and looks to be in an older building. We were given a suite room with a view of some construction going on at the back. I found the room to be a bit dark, it could have used... More
