One of our best stays in Norway. You can relax and have a great location within this wonderful city. Breakfast offers great choices, even alternative ones 😉. Very friendly staff, too. Easy parking. And lots of cozy corners where you can sit and read around the hotel.

You can easily tell that this hotel is in an old building: the rooms really smells like a very old house. There is no A/C making it unacceptable warm. The elevator is probably the smallest I ever have seen. In some of the Clarion hotels they offer you a free supper buffet. A good idea if you don't want to... More

I would second what others have said as in my title. The most amazing thing is that the rooms are a reasonable price AND INCLUDED are breakfast and dinner buffets, tea and coffee and hot chocolate from the machine basically whenever you want it, and waffles in the afternoon if you are there for them before they run out.

This hotel is clean, quiet, and well-run, with courteous staff and a nice breakfast buffet. An easy tram ride or walk from the city center, it is also quite close to some excellent restaurants, so that exhausted museum-goers can enjoy fine dining after a nap, if they don't want to dine in the hotel. The only downside for me was... More

This hotel is located in an upscale neighborhood, from the outside, it is an ivy covered mansion. Inside, the room we had was spacious, clean and pared down. They offered both breakfast and dinner buffets. And given that we arrived in Summer, many of the local restaurants were closed for vacation it was a life saver on our first evening.... More

This was a great place to stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast, dinner and waffels provided were also a bonus especially as food is so expensive in Norway. The hotel has a lovely warm, welcoming feeling and there are lots of areas where you can relax and read, tall or watch TV, away from your room.... More
