It's in a perfect location, right by the pier, train station, souvenir shops, and restaurants. The hotel has old-style charm and cute cozy rooms. Mine had an alcove that let me sit under the sunlight and enjoy the mountain view. Wifi is free and reliable. They serve a buffet dinner plus a daily special. There are other eateries just steps...

We stayed for a night excellent location. Nice room. Sunset service. And breakfast. I don't understand why they charge you extra for hot milk. But ...... The room are clean. Bed comfortable. Basic but everything you need. For an overnight stay.

It was really excellent hotel that I've ever stayed because the location was convenient and the staff was very kind. Also the view of the room was amazing. I could see the lake and mountain in my room and the night view was beautiful. I hope to stay again if possible.

We stayed in a standard room and it was very comfortable and cozy. Free wifi in the rooms.The breakfast selection was great! If you need any recommendations for day tours the staff will give...

Location is perfect in front of the tidy tourist village where the likes of Costa cruise mega ships vomits its herds of souvenirs greedy tourists. We were in the historic section of the hotel and the rooms and amenites were in line with the price tag. The rest e.g. public area, restaurant, check in-out service was extremely well organized and... More

Enter the hotel and you are thrilled by the location and view The staff is very friendly and efficient. Then comes reality. We had a recently refurbished room in the so-called American wing. Not a closet or drawer to be found. There were 6 hooks and a metal shelf in the sleeping area. Not the neatest way to spend three... More

Had free upgrade for our one night stay which was appreciated and provided extra space with separate sitting area/lounge. Good size bathroom, nice amenities, tea/coffee making, free wifi worked great and plenty of no cost parking. Comfortable bed and hanging space for clothes was OK. Some noise from nearby room's plumbing but not a problem. Room was nicely cleaned for... More

The hotel is literally a minute's stroll from the dock where the boats arrive as part of the Norway in a Nutshell tour. It has so much character, the lady who checked me in at reception was so helpful. I was fortunate enough to get an upgrade - and had a lovely room with a balcony. Flam is only a... More

Great location, comfortable bed. We were a party of 3, a parent and 2 young adult children, and had cycled the Rallarvegen that day. We were therefore quite exhausted and had a terrific and well deserved 11 hour sleep. The hotel staff were helpful and sent up more tea and some milk to our room. The breakfast buffet was pretty...
