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.

Irina & Helen..Thanks to you Ladies for the best welcome in town.:) Good place,easy, clean, friendly,but please please, at least leave 1 or 2 rooms for smokers in every hotel in Scandinavia. I dont know if someone ever told you but it is a bit cold outside:)

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.

Just e standard hotel, everything o.k.. Rooms good and clean, complete, friendly service and a good restaurant and breakfast facility. Only disadvantage, a bit outside the city between other business. And a fair price.

Every year I stay at the Scandic Hamar City during Easter. I have only good things to say about the staff, the service and the breakfast. But for the first time we got a room in the old part of the hotel. The room could definitely need an upgrade, at least the bathroom. Took a closer look at the door... More

My room was Scandinavian modern and very spacious. There was an expansive view of the area including the Viking Ship arena. The staff was very friendly. The clerk noticed that I had picked up a Hamar regional guide in German and was quick to find me an English one. Parking is across a small street but it is free. I... More
