Hotel in need of a facelift Room heating is controlled by computer in reception definitely needs looking into, If your going to stay in winter months pack warm clothing.On a brighter note food was good and plentiful.

Torry at the reception did a great job helping me with a Charger for my MAC. All staff was very helpful and nice. But the room was dirty. Shower not working. It was cold inside and not possible to turn up the heat. Not very pleasant.

Arriving from a city with 25C it was a little transition to come to a hotel with a cold room. Although on the stove it is written you may contact the reception to adjust the temperature I wonder how many people do just that. The room is practically empty, no fridge. Good breakfast. They served a mediocre dinner with a... More

Tried this hotel this august, when I and my brother were in Hamar for a football match. Hotel located just beside the Briskeby stadium - very convenient. 5 min walk to town centre, full of bars and restaurants and striking teachers! Hotel room medium size, clean and comfortable. Hotel staff friendly. Breakfast good - decent selection of foods!

Solid brown metal wall facing my window, no more than 10 feet away. I can almost touch it. The double bed had a single duvet on it which made for an uncomfortable night. No plug sockets next to the bed... Surely I can't be the only person to want to charge their phone overnight and also use it as an... More

A no-charm hotel which tries to be more than it is. Half of the hotel is dated whereas the other half is newly built. The rooms in the dated part are just basic with a distinct mid-eighties feel. The room is small and the bathroom is sub-standard with stains of mold in the shower. The cooling is not sufficient. Both... More

If you're looking for high quality, clean, safe stay in Hamar, this is a good choice. A solid chain hotel without much charm, but with good service, good beds and decent breakfast. It is slightly off town centre, so be prepared to stroll or get a taxi.

Stayed here on business at the end of May, as it was booked and paid for by the company I was visiting. This hotel felt a bit like a Travelodge only clean and not so tired. It was pretty basic, but everything that was there seemed to work well. Maybe this is an example of Scandanavian minimalism? The room was... More

I was there in November and I have to say that I wont go there again!...Room wasn't clean enough. The towel had black spots and the sink was fairy yellow due to dirt...:(.. The stuff wasn't helpful. Although the heating system was down but they were quit slow to fix it. I could see others were complaining as well.
