This is like many before me have mentioned a part of the Stavanger Central hospital. However, the rooms are ok and the hotel is nice and quiet, except for the lobby which is right next to a kiosk and the hospital's main entrance. Great service by the staff though! In other words, for business it's sufficient, for any other sort... More

We were on the way for the Preikestolen hike, when we had to stay overnight in stavanger. We could get the only place to stay here (though very expensive). I must say that the hotel has nice rooms and scenic views outside. But coming from a very cheerful city like Bergen, we were depressed to see out hotel attached to... More

After paying an exorbitant amount of money (even for Stavanger), the room was more like a student room. It was actually a converted hospital room. Reasonably roomy but very basic. So a Travelodge room for a Hilton price. It is a 5-10 minute taxi ride to the city, so that is another cost you should consider. Breakfast was OK, not... More

Great for a short stay. First we were surprised that the hotel reception is also a hospital reception, however it was a pleasant stay with clean room. The breakfast was excellent and the small cafe next to the reception serves lovely snacks through the night.

Unbeknown to us we booked to stay in a hospital. First day having lunch, couldn't figure out exactly what type of hotel it was then the man swinging his colostomy bag around confirmed it!! And put us off our lunch. "Hotel" was in quite a poor location, there are no local bars, restaurants were quite a walk away. Obviously the... More

The hotel is quite central (just four stops away from Stavanger Sentrum). Rooms are nice. There is free wi-fi access but it doesn't really work well in the rooms (at least not in the one I was staying). It's annex to a hospital so don't be surprised to see a few patients coming down to the shop and especially a... More

Following a Scout Jamboree outside of Stavanger, our group toured around Norway, travelling back to Stavanger to fly home the next day. We chose this hotel as it was cost friendly and looked nice. We took a bus from the Train station and got off at our stop after about a 15 minute ride. The entrance to the hotel is... More

We booked this hotel for a business trip which required me to be close to our meeting location. The day before our arrival we were informed that because of hospital constraints (they needed to have more beds): "Sorry to inform you that we have to relocate your reservation with us tomorrow. This due to our relations with Stavanger Hospital, who... More

Have until now stayed numerous times in Stavanger, but never in St. Svithun. Finding the Hotel was a small challenge, as the GPS said that it was at/inside the Stavanger Hospital, which we were sure couldn't be right, but after searching for other options for 10 minutes we drove to the front of the Hospital, and there it was St....

I was looking for a hostel like experience but with a private room, in the city center and thought that was what I was booking with this place based on the description. My private room was nice and clean however it was very very hot, no a.c. even though the description said there would be. The window only opened a... More
