I stayed in this hotel for couple of nights during my business trip. What can I say, everything is clean, everything is working but such a details as shower with curtain and shower head fixed in the wall, or absence of glasses in the room ( where I can put my tooth brush? how drink tap water?) can spoil the...

I stayed here on business for one night and was met at reception by an attractive, happy and professional. The first issue came when at 2030 I asked what time the bar closed...after travelling for so many hours I usually like to grab a glass of wine to relax. I was told, the hotel bar closed awhile ago...in their defence,... More

We arrived to the hotel and tried to find parking. There was parking in the hotels basement, but it cost 150 NOK (24 USD). It's really bad to charge your guest for parking. The staff was nice and kind, but the hotel and its rooms was really worn out. They should really upgrade the hotel. We felt like sleeping in... More

I am originally from drammen and it is amazing how they have transformed this city, it has become a wonderful place to visit. The hotel itself has benefitted tremendously from the changes around it, and what used to be a bit scruffy and down run centrum on the Stromso side of the town is now modern, light and car free....

If the expression "bread and butter" would need a hotel equivalent, this would be the "First Hotel" in Drammen. Clean, rooms are big enough, the sound insulation is good, the location is excellent. If you are after frills and extras and the small luxuries of life, this is not your place. My room was in the central building, one of... More

This hotel is conveniently located a 2 minute walk from the train station and just across the bridge from the lovely downtown and river walk area. The room itself was unremarkable, but comfortable and complete. The best part was the amazing breakfast buffet included in the price. The hotel bar was also quite cozy.

Having checked the "professional pics" of the hotel, quite frankly, I'm confused. It can't be the same place we stayed at. Our room looked NOTHING like these pictures. Entering the hotel you might get the impression that yeah, right, this must be a nice place, but it won't last, trust me. Let me take you on a wonderful journey. When... More

We stayed 3 nights here in April whilst visiting family. Check in was swift and we had two rooms between the party of5. 2 completely different rooms they were too! Room 1 didn't have a bath tub but a small shower cubicle and no views other than some concrete. We took our toddler to our family members room to bathe... More
