Spent 2 nights at this hotel whilst travelling on the Norway in a Nutshell. We were pleasantly surprised by receiving a hotel upgrade and we had a lovely view of the fjord. The room was clean and everything in good working order, with the bathroom a generous size. The staff were friendly and the Breakfast and Dinner Buffet provided great... More

Since Fretheim is very close to the fjord and railway station it is extremely touristy and always bustling with travellers. The hotel is a historical hotel so it retains its charm. Breakfast was plenty with a large spread. The rooms were just sufficient but clean. Not too big, not too small. We were there just for a night and glad... More

Only 3 minutes walking distance from the railway station with nice decoration. Food is good with reasonable price. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the hotel after comparing other restaurants nearby. There are satires inside the hotel to reach each floor. 2nd floors is restaurant, 3rd is the bar. 4th and 5th are for view only but I think... More

This hotel is very handsome and has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. The large lobby cum bar cum lounge is wonderful. Dark slate floor, treble floor height smoked glass frontage with golden oak staircase and railed mezzanine. Lots of lovely comfortable sofas and chairs, unusual tables (clock face tables and leather trunk tables), mood lighting and a... More

I already have been at this hotel 3 times and it was always a very good stay, specially after the 55 km bicycle ride at Rallarvegen. The hotel is part of the Historic Hotels of Europe, well located in Flåm, is very well maintained, everything is organized and clean. The restaurant is good serving nice meals and breakfast, remember to... More

We 7 seniors from India we reserved 5 rooms in Hotel Fretheim for overnights stay through Booking.com. We had booked “Norway in Nutshell” to start sight-seeing from Oslo to Flam & onward during Aug. 2014; this hotel is just adjacent to the Flam railway station; everyone walks with their bags to enter the hotel. One point of caution is that... More

I admit that weather or not the restaurant manage to serve a decent vegetarian dinner always reflects in my view on the hotel as a whole. Especially in the case where the hotel is remotely located and supposed to be quite an experience in it self. The rooms are nice and modern and the hotel staff was nice and accommodating.... More

Lovely hotel although the room we had was somewhat dated but still comfortable. It seems to me now that it is the norm to give tour groups the most unlikeable rooms which I would not choose had I booked this hotel myself. Having said that, the location was wonderful, with the surrounding mountains and fjords. I was stunned at the... More

Yes, prices are very high in Norway and cost of this hotel was no exception. In total we stayed at hotels in Norway five nights, and our two-night stay at the Fretheim Hotel was by far the best of all. The location is right at the head of the fjord and the view is majestic. The port is very active,... More

If you were planning to stay overnight ןמ Flam, you do not have a lot of optionsץ... The hotel is supposed to be luxurious and prestigious in Flam, But it turns out that it is very expensive in relation to the consideration he gives. The service at the reception is very slow, Check-in time is very late, and on the... More
