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.

It was amazing to have a view of the fjord from our room. This is a quiet and clean hotel with just the basics. The WIFI was reliable and slow from our room, but worked better from the lobby. The location makes this hotel a good choice. There is free parking in the front. Dinner was good and fresh -... More

I decided during my DIY "Norway in a Nutshell" tour, to jump off the ferry at Aurland. As it was a bit off season (early September), the hotel had heaps of availability! I got a single with a fjord-view balcony for a fairly reasonable rate (for Norway). My room had a rather lumpy bed, couch, table, chair, TV, bathroom and... More

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. The food in the dining room was very good and the complimentary breakfast was very generous. All of the staff were friendly and most helpful. The WiFi was a little glitchy but worked very well and fast in general. Aurland is in my opinion much more desirable to stay in than Flam. Flam... More
