The Fretheim hotel is a nice comfortable hotel in a great location, near to the ferry and train station, and of course with great views. We had a very comfortable stay and have no complaints at all. Everything is very clean and the staff are friendly and efficient. We would stay again.

We actually have not had the opportunity to stay at this hotel. We booked in October, 2011 for a stay in February, 2012 while on a 3 week trip to Norway. We prepaid for the hotel through Orbitz. We were abruptly notified at the end of November that we were being moved to a different (and lower rated) hotel "at... More

This is a costlier hotel but if you consider that it includes breakfast and how expensive meals cost in Norway, then its pretty good value. Hotel itself is decent, clean and comfortable. The toliet comes with a tub which we never got to use anyway. The town is so small, anywhere is a good location! The room's heater control is... More

We stayed in Flam overnight to break-up our Norway in a Nutshell trip from Bergen to Oslo. There are only a few hotel options in Flam. I chose the Fretheim because it was the only one available, and I think we got the last room. It was a bit expensive, but it was well worth it to be only steps... More

The hotel has nice rooms that are clean and simple (albeit a bit small). Flam is a beautiful little town offering lots of souvenir shops and the opportunity to hike, kayak and go boating (the Fjord Safari was a fun experience). The hotel served delicious food at the breakfast buffet (try the lamb sausage and the brown goat cheese made... More

We arranged this hotel through Norway in a Nutshell and as such got a discount through the Fjord Pass. We arrived on the Flam railway from Myrdal and had decided to stay the night in Flamn and carry on the journey to Gudvangen by boat the next day. The Fretheim hotel is situated very close to the train station/pier (although... More

Very nice hotel in a gorgeous location . Rooms are pleasant but not exceptional but if you can try and get the historical rooms which are beautiful. If not do look at the Per Sivle library and the old rooms which are used for conferences. Very friendly staff and lovely food. What more can i say? Would love to go... More

Flam is a fun city and this hotel was an excellent place to stay. Steps from the dock and train station. The breakfast and dinner was wonderful.

Four of us (Two couples) stayed at this hotel for one night. The hotel is only steps away from the ferry dock. it has an absolutely stunning location in a beautiful town (Flam). We were assigned "historic" rooms for our stay. The hotel itself has a long history. The staff were welcoming, the lobby is comfortably spacious. Our historic rooms... More
