I must say up front that I thought the hotel was quite good but my wife did not like it much. So, it scores an average. Modern style hotel, clean and nicely furnished. Particularly liked the large framed black and white photos hanging on the walls. We are members of the Nordic Choice which includes the Clarion hotels. We may... More

In the town of Skien, twoandahalf hours drive south of Oslo, you have the choice of two hotels (that I'm aware of), and the few times I've been there, I've stayed at Hotel Bryggeparken. The hotel is part of the Choice chain, not particularly quaint or special, but with a great location (try to get a room facing the river)... More

The lady in the reception was lovely and welcomed me with a smile and a pepparkaka (traditional Scandinavian christmas delicacy). But the hotel really is nothing special. The rooms are small with a 1990's-like interior and cheap beds. Some have a view of the lake outside but mine faced a brick wall. More alarmingly, the rooms are quite noisy when... More

A good hotel with a nice loacation for reasonable price. The sevice is excellent and the breakfast has a nice variety. My room was also good, but I would like the opportunity to adjust the temperature. It was a bit warm. All over very satisfied for this price.

Recently spent two nights here while working on a local music festival. My room was a reasonable size. Two single beds. Modern and pleasant. The last reviewer mentioned an empty mini bar. I don't think this was an oversight. In fact, what one is provided with is an empty fridge. Probably because of some law aimed at preventing children from... More

Stayed one night with my wife, had a "superior room". The room was quite ordinary, shower, neutral decor, a little balcony with a great view of the harbour, small room like most European hotels. Clean room. Minibar had unfortuntely not been refilled. Supper was ok, didn't try the breakfast, it ended 10am and we wanted to take the oppertunity to... More

Dear DocHeitmann, Thank you for writing a review from your stay at our hotel. Our pricing system is based on supply and demand. You have probably visited us on a day with high demand and therefore high rates. It is possible to visit us and pay almost half the price in weekends and low season periods. We only offer 106...

A very nice, airconditioned hotel, with a nice view at the riverbank of Skien. The food was good and the receptionists was nice and polite. The waiters at the evening meal could have been more outgoing and talked to the customers. The only draw back was that the hotel and only a few parking spaces. They could have negotiated a... More
