I just stayed there for one night, but it was a short Holiday trip. The breakfast has everything you like for breakfast (english breakfast, sweets, coffees, etc. ) Our room was super clean and a perfect size for a young couple with luggage. We had a wonderful view directly to the lake in Hamar. The staff was also really kind... More

We were two couples staying here. The hotel is modern and the staff are helpful. Our room was on the top floor but it was far too warm inside it. We could not open the window to let in some fresh air as the lock was broken. Room itself is modern but lacking some basic essentials like a mirror. The... More

Great hotel. There was a lot of choice at breakfast and the room was very clean. When we first arrived we found our room was a little warm, so they happily moved us to a larger ventilated room with a better window free of charge. Great service and would return again.

Needed a hotel in Hamar, and after using hotels.com and booking.com I found this hotel to be the cheapest this particular night. The youth hostel would probably have been the cheapest, but according to the reviews here on tripadvisor I decided to go for hotel instead of hostel. Was met by a polite, but not very talkative, receptionist. No problem... More

Aircon should be added. This would enable to close the window at night. Without aircon and open window it was very noisy due to the train track right in front of the hotel. Unfortunately no gym inhouse. Just nearby with additional cost.

I nice hotel, very central, just 200 meters from the railway station. And the food was ok. The rooms were a bit small, but clean. The receptionists were not that helpful, but in total it was quite good.
