Our group of 5 stayed here for one night on a short Norwegian road trip. The apartment was clean and spacious. It is located close to the Olympic ski jump, which is walkable as is the town. We had a small balcony and two bathrooms which was useful for a group. We didn't use the restaurant so I can't comment... More

We stayed at the Birkebeineren Apartments on Dec 24-26. Arriving in Norway on Christmas Eve is not ideal. Thankfully we had family who arrived ahead of us and were already staying in another apartment. They did some grocery shopping for us as the only thing open until the 26th was the 7-11 in Lillehammer. We found the apartments very charming!... More

We just stayed one night. The room was very comfortable and clean. Perfectly happy with the accommodations. The breakfast was very extensive and the food satisfactory. We were very pleased with the price paid for the room.

Located on the hills in Lillehammer, just at the foot of the ski-jump center. We got a room in second building, the rooms were rather average, bathroom was OK, TV from the previous century. Staff is really professional, they have helped us to store or bicycles in the ski rooms which were not used in summer. Wifi is extremely slow.... More

We had booked a regular room for three people but were upgraded to a huge family room. It was clean and modern and looked recently renovated. The hotel is in a great location; beautiful views and surroundings and a 10 min walk to downtown Lillehammer, there's even a little swimming hole next to the hotel, but beware: the water is... More

They have startet renovated - but are not done. The stove was so bad that we couldn't even heat a pizza in it. There were one doublebed, and bunk beds. Shower, not bath- not upgraded at all. Comfortable living room with ok TV.

We booked this for Christmas week after reading some reviews on TripAdvisor and were glad we hadn't been put off by the negative comments. The staff were really helpful from start to finish, advising and helping us to organise different things before we arrived.

As Brits to cost of anything in Norway was huge but this accommodation was reasonable.
