The positives are: Excellent, convenient location if you are a tourist. Generally clean Some helpful staff Characterful building Excellent shower in one of the four rooms our party... More

Comes down to personal taste and what you want from a hotel. Having read earlier reviews my experience concurs with many earlier comments; the walls were thin (third floor), the decor is tasteful, the staff are helpful, the quality of breakfast is not as good as other places I have stayed in, it is well situated if you are wanting...

This is an interesting hotel. The contrast is that it has many excellent qualities together with very poor drawbacks. Let's begin with the former. The interior design is really beautiful. It is based on grey stone walls together with tasteful wooden timbers and original paintings in nice frames throughout. The lobby in the ground floor has also an old mechanical... More

Location was perfect but too noisy from karaoke voices all night from the next building. Plus, room wall was very thin so could hear sneeze from neighbor.

Old and dusty hotel. There were too many kids during winter holidays. Noisy. But personnel was friendly and helpful. Location was perfect - right in the middle of the city, all main sightseengs are located in few steps from the hotel.

We stayed at St.Olav for one night and it was just terrible. The waals were so thin that you could hear clearly what others guests were talking and when they had sex. We came back to hotel at 1 am and try to sleep, but our room 130 was above the nightclub/bar. The music was so loud that we felt... More

The hotel is a big old building and most of the rooms are built around an inner court, which is quite charming. However, some rooms do not have windows at all, which happened to us. I really think they should inform about that when you book, because if is a bit claustrophobic. It happened to us, but fortunately they were... More

Only for your own risk. The hotel is "wanna be", but even they have underfloor heating in bathroom, the heating in room is not good working, or you can get the room in the basement, where you can hear all night long drunk people loudly enjoying themselves on the street in the opposite club. Kitshy, but nice are the hundreds... More

Positives first - this hotel gets top marks for location, just off the main square in the Old Town. Its old and quaint which is lovely. However because of this it isnt sound proofed and you can literally hear every step in the hallway, every door shutting and every movement from the guests upstaris to the point where you just...
