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.

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.

Good hotel in Forus Stavanger close to the major business park. Hotel is of a good standard for short term stays, has a reasonable restaurant and friendly, welcoming staff. Like all hotels in Norway it is quite expensive but on this visit I had a room upgrade which was very nice. Breakfast is of a good standard with a good... More

The hotel is located approximately 15-20 minutes by car from Sola airport, and 10 minutes away from the city centre. There is a bus stop quite close to the hotel. The room was pleasant with a fairly large and very nice bathroom. The restaurant on the top floor offers great views and a varied selection of food both for breakfast... More

Good general opinion about the hotel, but restaurant isn't best option to be considered for dinner... Coffee break was quite good also! Girls at the reception were very polite but didn't have experience with their systems.

I stayed here only one night, but it was a very good experience. Quick and friendly check-in, very friendly and helpful staff. I believe I got a room upgrade, as the rom was quite large, with a separate sitting area and a large bathroom. The room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was really very good, a large selection... More
