I was here almost on the day it opened for the season, so it was uncrowded and pleasant. Stay in the round building for the best rooms. What more can you really ask for? The most gorgeous fjord in front of you, behind towering mountains, a quaint town, giant waterfall, and a ferry which runs once a day in winter... More

this hotel is situated between 2 mountains and fjord is passing through it. you cannot expect a better location than this. the rooms are not great, but fine for a one night stay. the staff is helpful and breakfast is decent. worth staying a night at gudvangen.

This was both the most expensive and the worst place we stayed in in Norway. I gather they have some accommodation near the restaurant with glass ceilings etc but we were in a motel section further inland. The rooms were dark, dated and not particularly clean and amazingly in such a beautiful location you couldn't really see the mountains from... More

We really enjoyed this hotel. We stayed in a viking room, in the sod roof covered building. It was unique! We loved the skylight - it made the room so bright. The room itself was much larger than ordinary hotel rooms, and we enjoyed stretching out. The woodwork in the room was impressive. I was afraid that the area would... More

This hotel is at the ferry terminal and there really is no point stopping here overnight. We ended up leaving early for Flam which is far more enjoyable with a lot more to offer. We had a family room which was at best basic - no Viking beds for us! We paid £225 a night for this room and although... More

Location is perfect. Right by the port of the Fjord cruise, as part of Norway in a nutshell. Rooms are a little strange, with lots of animal skin. The staff is cold at best. No warmth, just cold politeness.

The hotel is at the end of the fjord in Norway, right next to the ferry terminal. It was raining that day, we can get into our room from the terminal without getting wet. The staff is extremely helpful and nice. The restaurant with sun roof served good food . The sun roof is beautiful and enhanced the fjord experience.... More

We found it difficult to get suitable accommodation in Flam and chose this place, about 20km away directly through a tunnel in the mountain, at the other end of the Flam fjord. It is indeed one of the most unusual hotels I have stayed in. It consists of a grass-covered hexagonal building divided into 12 rooms, so each room is... More

I booked thi shotel because it it right next to the ferry, so I had no expectations. We were in for a fun suprise - we had a viking room with a skylight in the ceiling so we could look at the mountain waterfall from bed! It was great fun, even thought the light came streamining in by 4 a.m.... More
