We called into the hotel (as non-residents) on a Sunday morning for a change to cooking our usual full breakfast and it was such a pleasure. My husband, two children (aged 6 & 8) and I had a fantastic breakfast that was great value for money. The breakfast consisted of an excellent selection of cold cuts (sliced meats, cheeses, plus...

I stayed at this hotel for 13 nights and I was so impressed with the kindness, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.The rooms were clean and fresh. Breakfast was everything you could wish for and more if you asked. The evening meal was a little limited but with the addition of 2 specials each day it was more than adequate.... More

I had gone for a business trip. It is a standard business hotel but not the most ideal location. It is close to business park but otherwise it is in the middle of nowhere. If you are spending weekend, there is nothing to do. You need to travel 20 minutes to town center to go out to eat as kitchen... More

This hotel is fresh and clean and the rooms are decorated with style. The drawbacks are the lack of a mini bar, bathroom toiletries and when I was there you could not buy bottles of water. All in all the hotel is better than most Stavanger hotels, many of which seem tired and in desperate need of refurbishment.

Dear Hvatka Thank you so much for your feedback on your stay in February. I am glad to hear that you liked the hotel. I read that you miss the minibar in the room. Scandic has chosen to have a small Shop in the reception area to present a better selection of sweets, fresh food an accessories. You should have... More

Stayed for a week on a business trip. The hotel is located in an industrial zone. There are no shopping centres within easy walking distance and the weather was actually quite stormy when I was there. Taxis are very expensive - not the hotel's fault. There is a shopping mall, Kvadrat, a fair distance from the hotel and sadly there... More

I stayed there for about a week in Sept on a business trip. The hotel is located close to an industrial area, hence not much shop around. In fact there is no shop close by except for a Shell station with limited items on sale. Further up the main road there is a shopping mall, Kvadrat – you can get... More

Nice and modern looking hotel, but terrible service. The receptionist was rude and did not have any idea of the concept of service. Furthermore, no mini bar and no room service. They said I just could order the food and beverage in the restaurant and carry it to my room myself. It was a five minutes walk. Apparently this is... More

Impossible to find with my 7 years old(never updated) GPS. Expensive parking garage. Friendly staff, but not so friendly that I´m used to in other Scandic hotels. Ok breakfast. Poor dinner, and if you want to get your pizza without olives that was impossible for some reason!!?? Well working internet connection. Over priced hotel.
