Stayed here while attending an international conference at the local university. 5d4n, 2 people to a room. The rate we got was lower as all delegates to the conference were staying here, so there were some corners that were cut as described below. The room was very clean, but I think the sheets were not changed (because of the price... More

The hotel is clean, the rooms are small but functional. Good brekfast in the cafeteria. Its a great place to stay if you are having an appointment at the hospital early the next morning. If you dont have that, choose a hotel i the center of Stavanger. It feels like beeing at a hospital living there, because you are sorrounded... More

The staff was not helpful. We had to cancel our trip to this hotel. After that I asked for money back. But hotel did not help us about reimbursing. They were only saying these are the rules. They earned 1000 NOK from us. But I will continue to tell about my experience to all of my friends. A hotel should... More

The hostel is located in the confines of a hospital complex so the first sight that may greet you in the reception area may be young parents of newborns in the process of shuttling between different sectors of the hospital. This oddity aside, the hostel actually functions like a hostel in other respects. Rooms and bathrooms are modern and spotless... More

This hotel was difficult to find - even for the locals that helped us, as it is connected to a hospital. This seemed a bit strange for a budget hostel but it was good value and in a nice suburban area which meant we had a pleasant walk into sentrum. The breakfast was good and the shower facilities were nice.... More

Thought this was going to be a creepy experience but it actually wasn't. The rooms are very clean including the bathroom (the only off side is the emergency buttons in the bedroom and in the toilet which made it feel like a hospital). The breakfast was really good (which was included in the rate) - you will be eating breakfast... More

St Svithuns hotel is part of the University Hospital. It's a strange set-up: the reception to the Hotel is also the reception to the hospital. But I like the unusual to this in itself did not deter me. But as a hotel, it is neither particularly comfortable, nor particularly good value - though these things are relative. Norway is an...

This is the cheapest hotel we can find in Stavanger. The room was very clean and the price was included breakfast as well. The breakfast was really good. However, the location is not that good becase it's about 3 km from the center and sometimes the helicopter was flying around so it was a bit noise. For budget traveller, I... More

A late flight in to Stavanger and an early departure the following morning meant we just needed a bed for the night, shower in the morning and breakfast. This was the cheapest option I could find for my wife and I and our 3 teenage sons. The reception is in the hospital entrance and parking is to the right of... More
