“A decent B&B in a terrific location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

The hotel isn't cheap (atleast when we booked it). And the rooms weren't amazing either, esp since we had gotten twin beds instead of a double bed. The bathroom is tiny.

I guess what over rides everything is the location. The small village of flam is just located in incredible natural beauty. I would say treat this place just as a place to sleep and little more.

The breakfast here is reasonable which came with our room. And the parking is free

...am giving the Heimly an excellent rating. The minor issues are that it is a basic B&B with little character, basic rooms, simple breakfast. And that it is about a 10 minute walk from "town" (although smooth and level so bags can be easily wheeled) culminating with a dozen stair climb to reception.

But the price is certainly right (offsetting these little issues), staff is friendly and helpful, and the place is close to spotless. An excellent value in a gold standard destination.

Room Tip: Staying in a ground floor will trade off lugging bags up a narrow stairway against a much better vie...

This is a B&B with a potentially great location within 10 minutes walk from train station.
However, there are a lot of steps involved, first just getting up the front steps to check in, then up a narow stairway to our room. Others may have had a great view, we had the back yeard and its drying laundry. Breakfast is simple, and get there early, so you don't miss it. The staff were not the most helpful or friendly, but then Flam is so small, you can find every thing yourself.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Fjord.

Flam is a beautiful town on the shore of the end of Sognefjord. Heimly has a great view of the fjord from the front rooms, it was like having a changing mural in the room. The hotel is only a short walk away from the train station and the main quay. The staff were very friendly, rooms were clean and tidy. We had twin beds and all the rooms with double beds were booked out.
Breakfast was good but there wasn't much variation.
Overall we had a very comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Room facing the front will have a great view

Yes Norway is beautiful but it is also a ripoff, with unimaginably high prices. In comparison, Stockholm is more interesting, more reasonable, and, with its amazing archipelago, even more beautiful. However, if you must see Norway's fjords, then Flam is your base and Heimly your hotel. Rooms are minimalist but clean and comfortable. Very good breakfast; very friendly and helpful owners. And.........with Heimly's reasonable prices, you might be able to afford the $40 mediocre pizzas in town.

a simple B&B but great location within 10 minutes walk from train station.
The breakfast was simple and not much choice. It is served only from 07 to 09.30 so better not miss it !
Make sure you book a double room with view and built-in bathroom !

Coming in to Flåm, checking in at Heimly, we could just enjoy the marvellous view of the mountains and the fjord. We had a room with a fjord view (recommended). The room was not big, and had to single beds, but we were there just to sleep overnight, and as we were lucky with a nice warm weather, this was just what we needed.
They had no restaurant with dinner, but a close walk to Flåm made that no problem.
Waking up in the morning, we could enjoy the view over the fjord with two big cruiseships anchored, and lots of small tender boats bringing passengers to the centre.

Room Tip: Fjord view recommended.
