The hotel is being refurbished. I got one of the new rooms and it was perfect! Nice design, clean and a very good bed. Really friendly staff and the breakfast was good. Nice location in the middle of Arendal.

We got a newly renovated room, although many rooms are still not renovated. Super fresh and neat. The breakfast was perfect for us, friendly and serviceminded staff and a good location downtown Arendal. We were happy with our stay!

The hotel was under renovation. However, we were given the worst hotel room ever - totally worn down - at no reduction of price. It was EXPENICE and bad! The worst thing is that they must have had renovated rooms free with the apparent low number of guests.

Undergoing refurbishment and the rooms has become very nice. Bed was superb, pillows was a little thin for my taste but there was plenty of them. I had a very good night sleep. Breakfast included and it was also a very good experience. Clean and with a calm atmosphere.

The reception ieasy to find at the moment - we had to venture down a side street past Egon, presumably becuase of the building work, but ince there the check in was smooth and efficient. Finding the elevator to the room wasn't fool proof either but I eventually... More

Nice , clean, just what you need. Ask for room with a terrace if you like that. Staff nice. Located right in the city center. There is a restaurant next door, Egon, with access directly from the hotel.

This hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the old town and harbour in Arendal. Our room was very large and clean, and the shower was excellent! It might be because we were there off-season, but the room was very quiet despite overlooking the street. The breakfast buffet was very good quality and offered lots of variety. Altogether a...

It was day-and-night difference. The room was spacious. So is bathroom. It was much quieter even though it faces the main street. I was... More
