Nice and friendly reception. Rooms are very small and dated. Bathrooms need some change. Not much to do around. Very quite. 40 minutes from Oslo city. Bar menu is good. Rooms are a bit complicated to find as it has got letters and numbers on the key cards. Key cards are old style aswell.

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a conference at work. The conference facilities was nice, but this review is about the room and hotel food. The hotel has seen its better days and is in dire need of refurbishment. My room was small and cramped. The bathroom too was small and cramped. Breakfast and lunch was good... More

The main advantage with this hotel is its adjacent location to the railway station and also thus walking distance to the city centre at Bragenes. I wouldn't expect too much but it's a fairly decent hotel - the bed was soft and comfy and the breakfast was plentiful and filling (continental buffet style). The main advantage is also a drawback...

Convenient, quiet, nice room, clean and good service. Liked the view over Drammen. Good breakfast in an open and friendly environment. Very central location in the city. Several restaurants in the area.

Not quite «barely sufficient», and certainly not «more than sufficient». Located in an area ripe for gentrification, this hotel combines strains of old grandeur with thrifty economy-travellers, apparently focussing on organisations. I arrived at 2000, and was given a room that turned out to be occupied. The receptionist quicky rearranged me to another room, which also turned out to be... More

This hotel is a commercial bed for a quick visit and then on.................... Nothing fancy but it is clean well run and has friendly staff. It is ideally situated within 5minutes from the rail station and 10 minutes from the centre of Drammen. No need to take taxis which are expensive. Value for money under Norwegian pricing.

Stayed here on a business trip, very central and 5 mins walking from train and bus station. Its a decent place with all amenities available inside the hotel. There is a supermarket, Kebab shop and wine shop just outside the place.

I arrived late to the hotel, but was greeted and checked in by a helpful staff member. The room was nice, clean and comfortable, although it was a little small and the bathroom was also small. It did have a shower instead of a bathtub, but for me that is actually preferred, as I really don't like the hotels where... More

Stayed here while on business. The location is good, 5 minutes from the train station. Breakfast is also good with a large selection. Lobby and restaurant area is fairly impressive. However I have stayed here twice and the rooms are very small and dark. They're quite worn down are in need of modernisation, although they are kept clean. This hotel... More
