A good hotel with great view over lake from my 8th floor room. However the room was very small. No space for a chair to sit on. Also no table to write or use laptop. I had to go to the lounge to find space to work.

When you order there is several options. My option was a room with a view, wood floor, a desk, and close to the elevator. What I got was a room with a window to the back, far away from the elevator, no desk, I had to take my computer to bed because there where not even a chair there. I... More

Very nice fresh and modern place. Price was pretty cheap, comparing other hotels in Hamar. Despite it it was very nice and clean place! Can recommend to everyone! Also location in just very center of city is excellent.

A better choice than the Scandic Hamar thanks to a better location and a fully renovated hotel. Rooms are large with sufficient cooling. Comfortable beds. Nice bathrooms. Good breakfast, even though not fantastic. Free, fast, Wi-Fi.

Very comfortable beds, newly renovated rooms, very delicate. We had to try six rooms before getting one with a double bed, not twin. The cleaning was overall ok, but the downlights desperately needed cleaning. One of the sinks had a defect, but could still be used. Breakfast was good, but the staff working there clearly knew nothing about hand hygiene

Nice hotel for Norway. Nice staff, good breakfast, good position, beautiful view of the lake from my room, good internet connection. I loved the heating that worked and one could adjust as desired as well as the heated floor in the bathroom and shower.

Nice hotel with nice staff. Clean everywere, good breakfast. Noise from the train early in the morning. The bed was to soft for my wife, but I liked it. Perfect location in the middle og the town, close to a lot of restaurants.

Nice hotel with a great location. Rooms are small but very nice and the bed is fantastic. Nice modern bathrooms but the sink is tiny. Breakfast is not among the best I have seen but good enough. Friendly staff and good service.

Decent beds, OK breakfast that could do without the powdered egg scramble. The bathroom floor is way too hot, and becomes uncomfortable quickly, with no possibility to turn it down. Would return if the rate stays the same.
