Coming from the fjord ferry this is the only option in Gudvangen. We were upgraded from twin room with shared bathroom to the camping hut. It was clean but very simple,and for sure in need of some updating. Wi-Fi was not good. But the view was breathtaking. Restaurant was good, staff very slow and not so friendly. The front desk...

This is what happens when a place has no competition and purely rely upon its surroundings. The Gudvangen Fjordell is not a hotel, but something in between a motel and a camping hut. They have a wonderful website, but their Viking rooms are just a very small percentage of their rooms. We were put in two family rooms away from... More

This hotel at the edge of the Fjord was a great place to relax. The staff were great (even charged my cell phone for me when I had forgotten my charger). The beds were comfy, but if light bothers you, bring an eye shade. Complimentary breakfast was filling.

Maybe we didn't do enough research, but we felt the hotel descriptions and photos were somewhat misrepresentative. There are two hexagonal, turf roofed buildings with with great views of the waterfalls all around, but is not where we stayed. The "hotel" is really part of the very popular Gudvangen to Flam ferry operation. All the tour buses disgorge loads and... More

Gudvangen fjordtell is a good hotel. The rooms are well kept, in a viking-like style. The restaurant is good too, but like the hotel it self is is a bit overpriced. However the season lasts only half-a-year. Gudvangen ia actually a small ferry harbour and almost no settlement at all.

Yes, the location is spectacularly beautiful but I read the other reviews before booking and it seems I stayed in a different place. I guess most of the other reviewers did not stay in the old "Tingstova" Annex in a tiny basic room with shared shower downstairs and toilets along the corridor. I knew I'd get less than the best...

This hotel has given me so many beautiful memories. We stayed in a Viking Room. The hotel is situated perfectly in stunning surroundings including the fjord, breathtaking waterfalls and mountains. The room was nicely themed, basic but comfortable. Amenities at the hotel are of a good standard, everything you need including a gift shop, good food served all day and... More

I read some of the negative ratings and it seems to be opinion. We stayed here and really enjoyed it. The room was clean and the food was good. We ate at restaurant twice. We also stayed in the glass roof rooms but enjoyed lying on bed looking at waterfall behind hotel. I enjoyed the Viking motive rooms not because... More

Really enjoyed staying here. Super-friendly staff. The front desk person from Lithuania was particularly awesome. It feels a bit frenzied and packed with tourists from about noon-2 p.m., but the rest of the day is quite relaxed. The hotel is directly adjacent to the ferry landing, but the Viking Rooms feel quite isolated from all the noise.

Pros: 1. Good location with amazing views nearby 2. Big space Cons: 1. The wifi didn't work during our stay. Two of our cell phones can't be connected to the wifi. The staff just asked us to keep trying.. 2. The food is quite expensive with ordinary taste
