This hotel is in a perfect location to enjoy one of Norway's most beautiful fjords. Add to that the incredible, rushing waterfall and stream that runs alongside and in front of the property and this makes it a perfect place to enjoy the best of nature. There is a pathway with a lot of stairs that runs beside the waterfall.... More

This hotel is in pole position at the top of the waterfall with stunning views over Geiranger Fjord. We were there on a rare sunny day in July, and having hiked up there via hundreds of steps next to the spectacular waterfall from our cruise ship, we were parched and in need of a drink. A pint bottle of local... More

With only 4 hotels in Geiranger finding a room can be a challenge. We were stuck staying at this very expensive hotel. It was nice but mostly focuses on the extras. The pool is great and the outdoor hot tub can't be beat (the views are amazing). The breakfast was also really good. The room, I would say, wasn't anything... More

My wife and I have just had a great two day stay at the Hotel Union. We arrived late in the afternoon and were given a very friendly greeting by the people at reception. We'd had a slight accident with the car on the road to Geiranger and they were so helpful in giving us advice on informing the police... More

I stayed in the hotel for 2 nights as a part of a company conference. We all had a brilliant time, especially those of us who got assigned rooms with ceiling to floor stunning views over the Geiranger Fjord. The Spa is one of the best I have ever experienced and the outdoor heated pool with a view was an... More

The day spa at this hotel is wonderful and a first class experience. The buffet dinner and the breakfast had plenty of options but as other reviewers have stated, extremely busy. The foyer and surrounding environment were spectacular. Our room was dated and dusty, old curtains and bedspreads etc witha view of the carpak. The cars in the garage are... More

The Hotel Union is situated looking straight down the Geiranger Fjord which is a view you never get sick of looking at. The hotel is still owned by the original family who offer a friendly welcome and make you feel at home. The bedrooms are comfortable and even though we had a back room we still had a nice view...

Arriving at the Hotel Union, one might think they have found a gem. You are greeted with an antique Buick, a very spacious lobby, and warm and friendly staff. However one should temper expectations because initial impressions may change when you see the room. During our weeklong trip to Norway, we found our room at the Hotel Union was below... More
