hotel is located near a mall which provides some comfort. Rooms are small as in the picture so is more dedicated to business people that stays in the hotel only for 3-4, after 4 days still being in the hotel you will climb the walls. For the money paid you get very good service decent breakfast also they have some... More

A budget hotel with very small rooms and nearly unusable small bathrooms. Internet is free, but very slow and sometimes not available. Standard Breakfast is offered an very good, even if only scrambled eggs are offered as a warm dish. In the evening there is a buffet available but I can not recommend this. In the neighborhood, there is a... More

Good hotel, fully self service: check-in, buffet dinner, check-out, booking taxi. Shuttle bus to airport available(100 NOK), but not often, taxi to, from airport around 10 min drive for 250 NOK each way. All taxi equipped with credit card reader. Staff very friendly. Continental breakfast from 05:00 included good choice of cold meal, but hot meal only boiled eggs available.... More

Close to airport and motorway, quiet and clean, and for Stavanger area not very expensive. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Small, sterile rooms where no attempt has been made to make things cozy, but everything you need is there. Typical one-night away on business hotel. Shopping center next door, pizza place 5 minute walk away, simple one-item-on-the-menu restaurant in the... More

Basic room, but it had all we needed. Comfortable bed. Good value. Easy check in. Great, no hassle hotel. Would certainly go back again. Really close to a large shopping centre with a couple of restaurants.

Me and my fiancé were looking for a budget hotel, and this is the cheapest we found. We got a nice and clean room/bathroom. There's a shopping center right in front of the hotel. So if you want to eat, you just need to go for 2 minutes, and you'll find Mexican, Italian etc. restaurants.

Ok, so Norway is expensive, this will all know! It's a little out if the way in terms of location and although they do have a shuttle service, it doesn't run in the evenings so a cab from Solo Stavanger will cost you around 380NOK (around £38) its shouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes to get there, but if you're...

This hotel is designed for travellers who need a budget overnight stay. Keep in mind that in Norway budget is under $200. Stayed there this week and the price paid was $155, it is an expensive closet but you are in Norway. It is clean and very cramped. In fact you get into the bed from the bottom as there... More

For a short stay when you just need a place to sleep this is about the best value you can find in a hotel chain in most parts of Norway. Situated in business area with minimal facilities (apart from 24 hour coffee and snacks) it is good for business travelers arriving late and leaving early. It has everything you need,... More

I thought I got a bargain here but think I just got my money's worth. Over my stay all I saw was one helpful member of staff in this clean, minimalistic hotel. Scuffed and worn ikea furnishings in a cramped room pushed my questions as to what they considered a "double" to be and most of my time was taken... More
