“Helpful receptionist, OK room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2010

A helpful and friendly receptionist met us when we arrived, and we got our hotel room even though we was very early. I had a lot of questions about train/bus tables and the receptionist printed this out for me, and explained where I had to go, pay etc. The rooms was quite standard rooms. We had two double rooms. Breakfast was OK. When we coulden`t get a taxi, the owner of the hotel drove us for a fee. The hotel is owned by a chinese family, so this is not something I would call a traditional norwegian hotel. But the staff was friendly, the rooms OK, and the price was cheap.

Located in the middle of Tønsberg, the location is good if you're planning to spend your time here. Some free parking spaces also adds some value to this, as that is hard to find.

We arrived quite early but was still allowed to check-in after a small talk with the receptionist, which was very nice, as the hotel were fully booked. Our room was very tiny, but as we were attending a festival we didn't really care. Because of this happening, the price were also high, and if I had not been in my festival-mode it would have offered much valure for money. Front desk looked like someones messy living room with everything from old breakfast plates to water boilers and electronics standing around on the floor. It gave the impression of being very messy, and I'm a bit surprised by that. Breakfast was ok, and if you want to eat in, the hotel also offers asian cuisine as they also run a take-away service.

Extra points for sending us our camera which we forgot in the room for no charge, which we really needed for the rest of our trip, but all in all it was one of the strangest hotel stays I've had. It was really not that bad, but then again it wasn't really good either. I don't even know if I got that hotel feeling.. I don't think I would recommend the hotel to anyone else, but at the same time I would stay there again without any problems if it was the most reasonable option available..

Clean enough, very noisy at the weekend (room at the back) no key to the fridge, basic breakfast buffet (plastic fruit!)

cheapest place in town, but still pricey, eating out is shockingly expensive, good place to diet!

Four of us arrived as booked for our two rooms with twin beds but were given two double bed rooms. we had politely declined to pay in advance per their policy, till we had seen the rooms. we went back down to Reception to ask for our twin bedded rooms. the staffmember insisted that the double bed rooms on floor 4 were better and seemed unable to grasp that we wanted four beds. his -unjustified - exasperated comment in response to our polite request was "If you don't like the rooms, you can leave!" if they had not had my credit card details, i may well have left in the face of such an unreasonable attitude to our continued polite request.

the rooms were ok, breakfast was a great buffet, but the attitude of the Chinese staff soured our experience. i would not stay there again.

  • Liked — breakfast buffet and location near the harbour where we were joining a frilend's yacht.
  • Disliked — staff attitude when we requested our original booking of 2 rooms with twin beds.

Worst experience I ever had. The staff was not intrested to help us with anything. Try any of the other hotells on Tonsberg, can be as bad as Maritim

We have just returned from a weekend trip to Tonsberg, Norway. We booked our stay at the Maritim Hotel directly over the internet. We only booked to stay in this hotel as it seemed the only one to have family rooms, which we needed as we were taking to young boys with us. The hotel was satisfactory. It was right in the centre opposite the library. The rooms were comfortable but nothing startling. Family room consisted of 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and living area. It had a fridge in living area and the bathroom had a hairdryer. So plenty room for our kids. One thing that struck us as odd was that when we arrived and went to our room we had a lovely large leather corner suite in the living area. We then went out to explore and on our return the leather suite had gone and been replaced with a velour navy sofa and chair. Which was nothing compared to the leather one. Never mind we had a nice stay and the weather was good, although we were told that the weather we had was rare for that time of year. It was a very relaxing holiday although we did lots of walking. We would definately go back. If you are going with the intentions to get drunk take plenty of money as it is very expensive. It cost us just over £10 for a pint beer and half a beer.

  • Liked — location
  • Tips/Secrets — If you want alcohol buy it at the airport and take it with you as even in supermarket it was very expensive
