Hi Eddy, Im so glad to hear from one of our regular guests! Im gad you liek the rooms, i can agree that if you stay for a long period of time some of our rooms can feel a bit small. Thats why we recomend upgrading to a superior or a deluxe. Thank you for giving us this great review!... More

Cold, terribly little room, poor eating (just basic things), a lot of services out of order. Quitee indifferent staff. Really too expensive for such quality. In advance, we had to pay extra 600 NOK for second person in dbl room, although booking.com promised same price for two persons!!! It wasn't an encouraging stay:(
