The Quality Grand is located very close to the Kongsberg city center and in easy walking distance to all areas of the city. It is right next to the river and convenient to the cinema. shopping and museums. The front desk staff is very nice and accommodating. They speak good English and are always available. the lobby has a nice gas fireplace and comfortable furniture. There is a general ski and jazz theme throughout. There is a mini-bar just off the lobby and a full bar back behind the restaurant. Downstairs there is another bar/nightclub. Drinks are very expensive, as is the case throughout Norway.
The rooms are a bit more spacious than I've come to expect. The beds are small but very comfortable. They provide a single pillow and comforter but I found it to be very comfortable and warm. The wash closet is small and cramped, with a tiny shower in the corner. My colleagues complained of hot water issues, but I had no problem with the water in my room.
Each room has a different heating source, so take a good look around before giving up. It took me 3 days to find my heater, along the floor beneath and behind the drapes. One of my colleagues had a space heater in their room and the other had a working thermostat on the wall. It is freezing cold in the Winter in Kongsberg, so you'll want to make sure you know where the heater is!
The wireless works really good, but you need a new code each day. If you sign up for their rewards program you can use the same code for the duration of your visit, I guess, but I didn't do that until the end.
The breakfast buffet was exceptional. A great variety of warm and cold food, juice and coffee. Lots of different cheeses and breads and meats. It was quite impressive and hot, fresh and delicious. The workout room is very small with just a couple of machines, but it was better than nothing. I never made it to the pool.
The QG is the only hotel I've stayed at in the city. I would like to see what the Best Western has to offer, but I have no complaints with the QG and would stay there again no problem!
