#5 of 8 hotels in Lillehammer
First Hotel Breiseth is centrally located in Lillehammer right by the train station and near the pedestrian street. Feel at home in one of our 89 charming rooms, indulge in the delicious breakfast buffet, and explore the many adventures in the Lillehammer Region. Relax by the open fireplace in our lounge with a cup of coffee and a good book. In the early 20th century, the hotel was associated with the Lillehammer Painters. Many of the painters paid for their stay with their own artworks and today, you can enjoy the art and this special atmosphere at the hotel. First Hotel Breiseth is the perfect base all seasons, whether you want to go skiing, cycling, hiking, or visit museums and cultural centers, such as the spectacular Maihaugen.
