Not expecting too much from a hotel on a railway platform my husband and I were truly blown away by this amazing place! The scenery is absolutely drop dead gorgeous and the hotel itself is really lovely. Rooms are fairly basic but comfortable, the staff were so helpful and lovely and the dinner was sensational! I only wish we could... More

Stayed one night in the surprisingly minimalistic rooms in this historic hotel. The single rooms had lovely beds and very modern bathrooms. Only accessible by train and a great starting point for hiking and biking halfway between Oslo and Bergen. We bought a pacage including bike rentals, transport of bikes and full board, proving good value. Takke some time to... More

We stayed at Finse1222 because we were to ride the a Rallarvegen, starting in Finse. Too much snow meant this wasn't possible, but I'm glad we didn't know before we got there, because we might not have come to Finse if we had! The room we had was basic and comfortable, but the view was out of this world! 4... More

Finse is a stunning place with Artic climate. It's all about nature. Accessible by train only and bicycle in the summer. Excellent restaurant and a wide varity of rooms. The atmosphere is partly old style but all modern comfort is available.

You literally leave the train and stay inside this 100 year old hotel in 15 seconds, seeing mountains in all directions. You are on historic grounds in this hotel, being visited by celebrities like Sonja Henie and Fritjof Nansen. This is the eldorado for mountain skiers in the winter, either you want to go over Jøkulen and further down to... More

This cosy and picturesque hostel is a comfortable and welcoming dwelling in the isolated hamlet of finse. It offers a good stay with good hearty food. It stands on the shore of a lake not far from the train station. In summer the area is good for mountain biking and good hikes. Finse is an extraordinary place, it was the... More

My husband and I stayed at Finse 1222 for two nights in mid January on an 8 day trip to Norway (from the US). We wish we had stayed for 3 or 4 days at least! We got the least expensive room we could, and it was furnished with IKEA furniture, BUT, it was spacious, clean, and the bathroom had... More

My experience of Finse 1222 is one I shall never forget. I can only speak about my stay during the winter months (January - February), any other time of the year and the hotel grounds are totally transformed into a mountainous paradise surrounded by beautiful lakes and a hanging glacier of cobalt blue ice. The winter months are harsh and... More

The hotel has an interesting history and appears to be well maintained. It has good food, both breakfast and dinner. Staff is cheerful and helpful. The view is spectacular over the lake towards the mountains and the glacier Hardangerjøkulen. It is a good base for day trips in the nearby mountains, to the glacier or to ride Rallarvegen. Or you...
