We stayed 2 nights here and thought the location was perfect. It is a much nicer town than Flam if you want quiet and scenic beauty. The hotel was just okay. It was very clean and it had a pool table in the lobby area which my husband and son loved. However, the staff is not very welcoming or helpful... More

The fjord view from the balcony is magnificent. Personally I am willing to give the hotel 3 stars just for the view. But we had a terrible night staying here. First, we could not get any dinner because the restaurant was booked for an event. The only grocery store was closed and we could not find any restaurant in this... More

The hotel was quite full when we visited so we had a room at the back and only side views of the fjord. Even those views were great. The room was very comfortable and spacious with a lounge area. The staff were helpful although not always at reception. The hotel food could have been better but overall we had a... More

Lovely view but with no blackout curtain, only white curtain, very difficult for light sleepers to get proper sleep in Summer. Room is clean but basic with 2 single beds pushed together to form double bed, although this seems to be common in basic/average hotels in Norway. Breakfast was served in quaint cottage and was plentiful, but very Norwegian -... More

This is a 70s stopover type of hotel where you press a bell to get someone at reception, no lift to negotiate your way up to the fourth floor, and door keys rather than cards still in vogue, But i ain't complainin when i am mesmerised by the sweeping views of the fjords from my balcony. Never mind the very... More

I do NOT recommend this hotel for anyone. This was a lower standard than I am conformable with. This is the kind of hotel that has a pay lock on the bathroom in their own bar for the guests of the hotel. The worst thing was this: I forgot my laptop charger. I sent them an email asking if they... More

If you happen to plan your visit to Flam last minute (because Hotels in Flam will be expensive by then and you would like to save on your budget, then you can check in to this hotel. This is almost like a backpackers hotel. The only but significant plus point about this hotel, you get breath taking view of the... More

Loved the views of the Aurland fjord from the balcony of rooms but would not stay here again. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and it was sub par to other restaurants/hotels we visited during our 2 week stay in Norway. Aurland is close to Flam but if you don't have a car the connections by bus or... More

Stayed for 5 nights on short notice and was pleasantly surprised by the choice. Most visitors are overnight or 2 night stays as part of the Nutshell itinerary, so don’t really get to explore the area. Staying a bit longer we got the opportunity to do a return fjord cruise from Flam to Gudvangen, ride the Flam railway, drive around... More

The place was clean.Old hotel, needs some work.but the location and the balcony view of the fjords makes up for the shortcomings.Good breakfast. Okay staff. The view point is a 25 minute drive is highly recommended. I would go back.peaceful surroundings.
