Visited Norway for the first time with parents (celebrating mum's 55th) and found this quaint hotel fairly close to Stavanger central. Rocked up at the front desk only to be greeted by 2-3 people carting around IV drips. Only then did it dawn on us that the hotel is slapped right on the side of a hospital! However, we were... More

Stayed for 2N in a female twin room.

My husband was admitted to hospital while we were on holiday so I had 4 nights stay at this hotel. I wouldn't have wanted to be staying here 'on holiday' but it certainly met the purposes for my stay. Staff were very helpful and friendly, especially the staff in the café/restaurant. Good choice of food for breakfast. It was a... More

We have slept 3 nights at the hotel. Quiet, cosy and nice to stay here at pretty pricy Stavanger. It is situated 25-30 minutes easy walk to city centre. If you do not want to stroll take bus (no 3), 2 or 3 stops to the centre. Hotel is linked with the hospital. During the breakfast there are lots of... More

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
