This hotel (in an old mill) is centrally located and great to explore Lillehammer. We stayed here for 1 night. The room is ok, enough space, bed is maybe a bit small, spacious bathroom though. The staff is great. Breakfast is served in the restaurant in the same facility and is very good. Also try the rooftop bar, great views... More

We spent eight nights in the wonderful care of this cozy hotel. Staff were always smiling, always willing to help. Our room was simple and comfortable. We learned from manager Liv Gun Gratzler that Hillary Clinton used our room for a couple of days in 1994 when she came to Lillehammer for the Olympics. The Clinton name in Norwegian is... More

The Molla hotel was an amazing and very cool place! The Toppen Bar (roof top bar) was absolutely beautiful with panoramic views. But the Restaurant Egon (attached) was extremely special-half meter thick granite walls, solid beams, millstones, tools from the old mill days creates a very special atmosphere. Here you can sit in secluded and sheltered nooks and admire the... More

The clerk behind the counter was very accommodating when I checked in, and the service throughout my stay was equally nice. Free wifi and a decent size TV was nice as well. The hotel in itself, on the other hand, left a bit to be desired. It was converted into a hotel for the 1994 Olympic Games. Since then they... More
