Flam is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Very calm, silent, romantic. It has got serene beauty. This hotel is also a wonderful place to stay there. Very clean, nice and friendly staff, good breakfast. Beautiful collection of flowers in the garden. They have bicycles to go for a ride. Small but cute rooms facing... More

Why do hotels offer top floors, bay windows and then don't give you the best view? Using temporary staff results in less than optimum service or a big ignore in the bar. Great setting but rooms can be better.

Great location and wonderful views of the fjord. The hotel has a very welcoming lawn with chairs. The lobby is cozy and comfortable with the fireplace. The rooms were great with good views. The WIFI in the room was not working the first day but was the second day.The breakfast buffet offered many choices and the brown goat cheese made... More

We stayed here for two nights in June. Great room--large and comfortable.Excellent bed. Wonderful food--buffet style with lots of choices. We would stay here again should we return to Flåm. Only problem was no WIFI in the room. We needed to go to a special spot in the lobby to get on the Internet and check our email.

We stayed here as part of a “Norway in a Nutshell” tour. This hotel would have been rated “excellent” instead of “very good” except for one flaw, which I will get out of the way here and now; the lighting in the washroom was absolutely horrible. The washroom is equipped with three luminaires above the sink however, two of them... More

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights in Sept. It was such a beautiful hotel! From the moment we walked in we felt welcome, and at home. Our room was on the front with a balcony where we could enjoy the views. It was clean, comfortable and they provided extra blankets since we were cold. The dining room... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The staff members were friendly at reception. However, it took the wait staff ages to hand me a menu & take my lunch order. The hotel is conveniently located & has a nice exterior. However, my double room was below average for 4 star hotel. No toiletteries (seems to be the case in most... More

Wanted to stay here as it is a sort of icon in the tourist center of Norway. Great setting and ideal for walking around Flam. The reception was efficient and we soon had a nice room. Since we were touring in a campervan we needed the facilities after a spell on the road. Everything worked and we were comfortable. We... More

Despite being by the station dont get the impression it will be noisy. I dont think Flam could ever be accused of noisy! The rooms are fine esp if you get one facing the front or the station and the breakfast was very nice. I wouldnt recommend eating there at night if money is being stretched in Norway as there...

We knew that this was supposed to be a special place and it was. Of course the setting by the fjord is woomderful but the building itself is a combination of the original structure and an addition. We were in the origiinal bulding which was very nice and a corner room didn't hurt. Neither did the fact that they give... More
