“Business travel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I'm not sure how useful my review will be as this hotel is almost exclusively for business travel. It was adequate, the front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and it was close to the train station.

It is also one of only two hotels in Kongsberg.

If you are traveling for pleasure, it is centrally located and passes the muster. There are some noise issues, including one where a rock band had hired out a room to practice at night. Yes. A rock band. There were other noise issues as well that should be addressed.

Room Tip: I would ask to be placed away from wherever the band is practicing at night.

Thank you for posting Your review!
I am sorry that the band Down in the basement made it noisy, but they did not play later than ten o'clock at night? We will review the agreement with the comapny Down in the basement for sure.
I hope to see you again as Our guest in Kongsberg.

Stayed for 1 night for business, room is ok, clean functional, hotel generally is what you would expect. The food however was great, had dinner and although the menu was simple overall the food was very good. If i stay here again I will eat here. The wine selection was also good. Not the cheapest but this is Norway.

I was in Kongsberg periodically throughout 2012 on business trips. Out of the two hotels in Kongsberg, there's no doubt in my mind that the Best Western is the friendliest. It also has an excellent restaurant with the best waiter I've ever experienced (fantastically professional but friendly too) and really good quality food at a reasonable price (well, for Norway anyway!)

The rooms are spacious but a little tired/dated in places if you don't get one of the more up-to-date rooms - a small niggle and true of many hotels, including the other hotel in Kongsberg!

If you do ever have a problem, the staff are always more than happy to help.

My tip would be to ask for one of the more modem rooms and get one on the opposite side of the hotel from the train station as the noise can be a slight niggle if you're not the deepest of sleepers. That said 411 (on the train station side) was the nicest room I stayed in!

If I'm back in Kongsberg again I'll be staying or eating at the Gyldenlove without a shadow of doubt [:o)

Many thanks to all the hotel staff that looked after me during my time in Kongsberg - a very pleasant time spent in a very pleasant small town.

Room Tip: Get one of the more modern rooms and if you're at all troubled by noise, ask for one that isn...

As we all know the costs of hotels in Norway is rather high so one generally gets low quality at high costs. What a suprise to get a good quality room at a very good rate. We ate in the hotel restaurant and this was ok with good service but pretty tasteless food to be honest. On the whole i have stayed in the other (Grand) main hotel in Kongsberg and i will be choosing this one from now on.

This hotel has a warm, freindly feel. Across the street from the train station, and just down the street fromt a new ICA market. Free parking is a real attraction, saving the hastle from the usual privately run Norwegian money making parking racket. Dinner food is excellent, although the breakfast is a bit basic. Brit and the staff are always most helpful, and make this a home away from home when travelling to Kongsberg.

Nice quaint hotel with an incredible chef at the restaurant! Meat, fish or anything is done to perfection. I travel quite a bit over the world and this is one of the best restaurants I have been too. Its not ultra expensive (for Norway that is) but just good. Had lamp chops, tender and cooked perfect, halibut and swordfish was phenomenal and the steaks fantastic and perfectly cooked.

Room Tip: Upper floor not facing the train station.
