Nice and clean. It takes approximately 5 minutes with bus and 20 minutes walking to the city center. Friendly staff, though we first didn't get a double bed room that we paid for. They did find us another room though. We stayed for 2 nights and found it to be a convenient place to stay. A little weird when you... More

The hotel was nice and cosy. It is close to an hospital so during breakfast you are mixed with new mamas and mental disability people but there is nothing wrong with this. Breakfast is quite good. Rooms were clean while a bit small. Shower was Italian and very nice! Yet, a bad point is the parking which was like 200... More

The hotel is located in the hospital, which gives guests access to the hospital's facilities (shop, cafeteria where a delicious breakfast is served for 95 NOK). Simple but confortable room. The only minus is the distance from the city center, but several buses stop in front of the hotel and a city bike rental station is also on the parking... More

I stayed here for two nights during my visit to Stavanger. This is a neat and clean hotel (located inside hospital premises) about half an hour walk from the city center but has connectivity through buses. Decent place for those looking for lodging at a reasonable price within the city. Does not have a kitchen though. The staff were helpful... More

Booked a night here at short notice and expected a hostel of stereotypical description. What I did not expect was that the accommodation was more like a hotel and that it was actually within the hospital. Once you got your head round this, it was actually a very good stay.

The reception is 24 hour open. The staff is nice and very helpful. The room is very good and cozy. The toilet is also very clean and modern. The breakfast plan is very worthy. For a backpacker, this is definitely one of the best room. The kitchen in at the basement and fully equipped. It is simply very good!

Great staff, clean rooms and very good breakfast. They were very flexible with check-in and check-out. It is a little bit far from the city centre. I booked a single room, which is not so big, but perfect for one. It was a little bit expensive for a hungarian, but one of the cheapest in Stavanger.
