Only two and a half hours drive from Prekestolen (the Pulpit), this hotel is something out of the extraordinary. The new owners has during the past year created a tourist attraction out of this place, which used to be accommodation for visitors and workers at the Hydro power plant. With a true design concept from the sixties, spartan (but comfortable)... More

This is a hotel for the specially interested. I was attending a weekend here and had no idea where I was going. The last 2 hours of my drive I met only 12 cars, so the hotel is in a desolate location. This means that it's also really peaceful and calm. The rooms are minimalistic. I was really disappointed at... More

Thank you for your review. Energihotellet is basically a "minimalistic, historic design-hotel in the middle of nowhere". The architecture is functionalistic and brutalistic (a big contrast to the classic "Fjord-Norway landscape"), the interior very minimalistic but with unique design features such as our gilded fireplace and original 60s furniture. The rooms are build like a "picture frame" where the landscape... More

The rooms are fairly basic and not overly big, clean, tidy and comfortable. The pool is a community pool which is down the road and yes it's clean and heated. The staff were very friendly and helpful and assisted us with everything we need. The best part was the 3 course meal sat on the balcony overlooking the fjord. I... More

The hotel is part of a Power Plant, both of them designed by Geir Grung in the 60s. The view from the rooms is fantastic, most of the furniture is original. Fantastic breakfast and very friendly owners/personal. A must for those interested in architecture/design.

The hotel is actually a power facility. We had the "suite " which was a joke if you compare it to suites in different hotels. The restaurant, surprisingly, provided good food. It really caters to the employees of the power facility. Find another place to spend the night.

Dear Monvan, Thank you for your review. Energihotellet is a concept-hotel, half of the village of Nesflaten was designed in the 60s by famed norwegian architect Geir Grung because of a hydro-power station. The hotel was build in the 60s as a personal hotel for the management of the hydro-station company. The architectural style can be described as functionalistic and... More

The hotel is sympathetically set into the hillside, full of beautiful (if you like 50's style) furniture and surrounded by trees. Whilst minimalist in style, it offers all the comforts you might need. The floor to ceiling windows in our room offered expansive views of the fjord and surrounding countryside. Hotel guests have (in summer months) use of a small,... More

This hotel is different from what you expect to find in Suldal. It appears to have been built as accommodation for workers and visitors to the Hydroelectric energy company situated at Nesflaten. It is held in a minimalistic and plain décor favoured in Scandinavian design in the 60s and 70s and will appear nostalgic to some people. The bedroom and... More

I booked this hotel, for one night, as a stop-over during a month-long road trip around Scandinavia. The hotel itself was the main reason for the reservation. It is a fabulous 1960s one-off design!!!!!!!!!! I gather it was originally built for the 'bosses' of the hydro-electric facility. It is a small, low build with many delightful design features and perfect... More

A very special hotel, indeed, with a special history as well. The former canteen for the work force at a hydro-power plant in late 60-ies has successfully been turned into a small hotel. And why not, nature already made a substantial part. If you choose this "back stage door" to Norwegian nature, and you really should, "The Energy hotel" is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Energihotellet is a small design hotel located in the tiny village of Nesflaten in Suldal. In the 1800's Nesflaten was known as a popular tourist area as part of the Discovery Route from Stavanger, through Ryfylke, to Hardanger and Bergen. Today Nesflaten is known through the hydropower headquarters of Hydro's Roldal Suldal Kraft and residential area designed by famed Norwegian Architect Geir Grung in the 1960's. Energihotellet was built as a housing facility for Hydro's workers and guests and retains many unique 60's features such as original furniture and a gold fireplace. Today the hotel focuses on local food ingredients and traditions, culture and hydropower. All 14 rooms have a spectacular view of the Suldal lake and the surrounding mountains. ... more   less
