What a delightful surprise! Det Lille Hotel has suites/apartments around the small harbor town, easily reachable by car/foot or the hotel's free bikes. We stayed in a refurbished loft filled with sea life antiques (The Matros suit). The bed was mattresses on the floor, but in a nice, good and charming way. Kitchenette, TV, dining table. The house we stayed... More

Hi and thanks for the super review! Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and that you took the time to write about it!. Just to confirm the bed in Matros suite is a proper bed but low to the floor because of the sloping roof :-) Welcome back soon! More

We spent two nights in the Konvoi Suite. The suite is very large, with a kitchen, living room, bathroom, downstairs toilet and two bedrooms. One bedroom has a double bed, the other twin beds. There is also a small rollaway bed downstairs, but we didn't try it. If someone is planning on using this bed, they better not mind a... More

Hi, thank you for a great review, and thank you for the feedback about cleaning. We take the cleanliness of the suites very seriously so it is always disappointing to hear that it that it could have been better in the kitchen. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and wish you welcome back soon! More

Small nice city with small house knitted nicely together. This hotel has then joined some of this houses together as suites and small apartments. With a small lounge in the middle were we parked our motorcycles, and had our beers and told each other lies and stories of our abilities to drive these machines. We got better and better as...

Thanks for your visit and thank you for feedback! Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

My husband and I were searching for his family roots. However, we had very little information. That was no deterrent for Christopher. He got on the phone, called some important people and before we knew it, we were meeting the lovely lady that lives on the family farm. We were given the choice of two flats and decided on the...

Tried out Det Lille Hotel with my family. Stayed at the NAL Suite. I truly love the concept of this hotel, having various flats and suits scattered all over the small village of Risør. The NAL Suite was a real treat. It was a walk-in museum full of artifacts from the heydays of the Norwegian-American Line. Spacious and comfortable in... More

We enjoyed a fantastic 3 night stay in the S/Y Ceres Suite. Beautifully decorated with a cool modern / antiques style - I would think its the nicest place to stay in Risor. Brand new throughout the suite felt very luxurious. Perfect location for us in centre of Risør above reception (and breakfast room yet private and quiet). Lovely terrace... More

We just concluded one of the best vacations of our lives as a family, where we spent almost a month in Norway. A big part of our experience was spending time in the beautiful town of Risor, located around 3 hours drive south of Oslo. We stayed there a week to attend the Kammermusikkfest chamber music festival which is held... More

At Det Lille Hotell you get your own appartement, well equipped, and, all of them, very nice. The sutes in Sentrum is all located in the middle of the center of Risør. I could choose to have my breakfast delivered to my door, or have the breakfast in the breakfastroom.
