Flam is a fabulous small villiage in the fjords of Norway. This was a wonderful hotel about a 5 min walk from the train station/city center. Our room had a balcony and was full of character. The staff was excellent. This hotel had good water pressure. The breakfast had many choices and was very good.

We arrived here via train, and the location at the base of the mountain and on the fjord will take your breath away. There were a lot of tourists, but we were all managed very well. We had the 2-course dinner in a very pretty dining room with a great view. It was fine, as was the buffet breakfast the... More

Really well situated hotel with great views of the fjord. (The trip round the naeroyfjord is a must-as a world heritage site, it is absolutely stunning!) Rooms clean and well appointed with a lovely view from the balcony. Staff were pleasant and the breakfast and dinner buffets were good although if you're not keen on fish, there is limited choice...

Fretheim is situated between mountains and fjord with the famouus Flåm Railway 5 min walk away. Rooms are nice with a balcony toward the fjord and the big cruiseliners at shore. Breakfast very good. A bit expencive with 200 euro per night or more Here you may take different ferries also to Unescos Nærøyfjorden and Gudvangen. Flåm Railway.

Although the Fretheim is in a most beautiful part of Norway the hotel itself could do better. We had booked a superior room which had a really lovely view of the Fjord but other than that wasn't anything special. The bar wasn't open at all and I have to say the standard of the food wasn't great. We had opted... More

Although our room was nice, we were disappointed with the advertised "fjord view". Although we could technically see the walls of the fjord from our room, we were not able to see the water of the fjord. The included breakfast buffet was nice.

The location of this hotel is stunning, being right on the harbor area in Flåm and surrounded by towering rock cliffs and waterfalls. The parking lot is a ways from the front door, so if you're driving, it might be advisable to pack light!! We arrived at the hotel, which has a cozy lobby and generally friendly staff. We were...

A beautiful hotel right in one of the most beautiful places on earth. The food was adequate, the staff was very helpful, the fjord tour was breathtaking and the bus was spectacular. Our room had a balcony with a gorgeous view that was second to none. The location of this hotel makes it a "must stay".

Lovely hotel, friendly staff and delicious buffet meals with lots of choice plus yummy fish. Given an interesting walking tour on the history of the hotel. Surrounded by beautiful scenery especially the Fjords for walking. Interior beautiful oak wood reception and bar area with open fire. Bedrooms well maintained, clean and inviting.

I was excited to stay at this hotel. There are four people in our group with 2 rooms being booked. We scheduled the trip several months ago. When we arrived they split our rooms, one room with a lovely view, the other looking at the parking lot and cruise ship. The bottom floor room is adjacent to the elevators and... More
