We booked this hotel/hostel through Hostelling International. We were surprised to find that it was attached to a large busy hospital. It must be very convenient for people visiting family and friends in hospital. The rooms were very clean and more than adequate for travellers. There is a restaurant in the building and the breakfast was very good (buffet style).... More

If you search for reasonably priced, good equipped, quiet hotel including a good breakfast, then go for it. But if you pick it, do not complain that it is 20-30 minutes of walk from city centre, that it is a part of hospital and once in a while you can hear a helicopter. Be aware, that there is no hairdryer... More

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

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
