We had made reservations for a small group, where they managed to lose two of our rooms and weren't really apologetic about it either. The service was the slowest I've ever experienced anywhere, finding out anything in the apparently extremely complex computer system of theirs took 20 minutes. Everyone who actually got a room found them horrible.

Dear guest. I am very sorry to see that your experience with our hotel is disastrous. Your identity and date of stay is hidden from me in Tripadvisor, so it’s difficult for me to see what went wrong in your case. Please contact me on nils@activehotel.no or on my cellular phone +47 418 50 418, so I can find out... More

I stayed here for 1 night only. I would have given the rating " good" . This is a no frills hotel, with the usual Scandinavian friendliness. Breakfast buffet style, serving all tasts. Additional perk is the sportscentre next door, with a covered pool, however did not have time to visit same. Looks to me as a nice family hotel.... More

The Active Hotel is located on a peninsula next to industrial buildings so restaurants and the Viking Ship building is across a little bridge to Tonsberg. We were right above the outside smoking area so we had to keep the window closed all the time. It was cheaper than Tonsberg but not as nice. You can tell that they specialize... More

The only nice thing of the hotel is the fact that closed you can use free of charge ACTIVE sports club. Rest is a bit said and poor: rooms very small and far from the centre. Breakfast excellent, worthy to pay for it.

My room had the strangest layout I've ever seen in a hotel. They warned me about the room beeing rather small during check-in, but I was still surprised. It was kind of early-years cruise-liner meets hostel, and the cramped bunk-bed (wich amazingly was only one bed - go figure) with it's hard and springy mattress didn't do any favors for... More

Small, but clean rooms. Good value compared to the rest of Tønsberg. It is placed about 10 min walk away from the pier at Tønsberg. At 55 NOK, breakfast is cheap and actually quite nice with a good selection of bread and fruit along with the normal scrambled eggs and bacon.

We chose this hotel for access to the sports facilities which were good, although had limited opening hours at the time. The staff were very friendly, and welcoming, felt like a home from home. Breakfast was also very nice, with a good variety on offer at a reasonable price. The hotel is also clean with the ensuite bathrooms. It is... More

This hotel is a good budget hotel worth trying. Nice reception area, friendly staff, good parking space, nice breakfast, and simple, but quite fine rooms. We had booked a double and a single room through booking.com, but upon arrival they had only reserved two single rooms for us. Fortunately, we were only two people, because they had no free double...
