This is a very nice hotel! The rooms are large and sufficient! Euro style buffet breakfast available every morning until 11am. Within walking distance of the marina and launches for ferrys and the bus lines. The staff are very attentive and helpful!

We were too early for check-in so we were asked to return a few hours later, but left our bags by the reception with no problem. The check in was quick, and we carried our own small carry-on bags to our room. I didn't see a doorman or bellhop, but maybe one is available on call. The room itself met... More

We stayed there for a night and everything was great. Location is fantastic (really close to the old city), very nice room and breakfast. You'll find also very good restaurants at 100 meters distance. If you're traveling by car you can try find one of the very few parking places in the road or you can chose to stop the... More

Stayed here 10th to 15th May Had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the fjord. The views could of been fantastic, if it wasn't raining virtually the full time I was there. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is the standard fare for europe. Here for work, but would be happy to come back.

The hotel is in a good location. The staff was very friendly. Located opposite to the cruise boat pier, and walking distance to the mall and a Burger King joint amongst others. The down side was a power failure in the locality for nearly and hour in the night, but there seemed to be an absence of a power back... More

Very well located, the hotel is modern and conformatble. An old buiding totally refurbished, rooms are modern, simple and clean, although not big. Ok for a few days in case you don’t need to spend too much time inside the room. Bathroom is very nice – ours had a large window and one could feel that it was a lot... More

I stayed two nights here and enjoyed the location most. It is close by good restaurants and shops which are open late in the evening. The hotel room was very mixer and gave a luxurious feeling. However the door had very little insulation so every sound from the corridor was clearly heard inside the room. The beds were nice and... More

As others have said, the location can't be beat. Hotel is directly across from the pier and easy walking distance to restaurants and the old town. Rooms are modern, especially the bathroom. They aren't large but for one person not spending all day there, they are adequate. Hairdryer is one of the best I've seen in any hotel. There's an... More
