This hotel is ok for short stays (1-2 nights) Rooms are big enough if you are 2 people. You can rent bikes and electric cars. I don't have much more to say than it's a good and smart hotel if you are on the go and just need a place to sleep and rest.

The price was not so bad for Stavanger. But I should say : we got what we paid for. For a double room, I consider the room was not so big, also the toilet was narrow. The location was a bit distance from Stavanger city center, but near shopping center. My room has a "construction" view. I did not see... More

We where 4 friends in 2 rooms for one night. I'm always a bit worried when i have booked a room in a budget hotel, but this was quite nice. Nice price, friendly staff and clean. The only thing that annoyed me was the shower. Fair that the bathroom was small, but the shower door went in in the small... More

You have everything u want in your room, no extra stuffs, since they are Eco-friendly hotel. However,Internet didn't worked conveniently as I would liked to. Since we were there for... More

hotel is located near a mall which provides some comfort. Rooms are small as in the picture so is more dedicated to business people that stays in the hotel only for 3-4, after 4 days still being in the hotel you will climb the walls. For the money paid you get very good service decent breakfast also they have some... More

A budget hotel with very small rooms and nearly unusable small bathrooms. Internet is free, but very slow and sometimes not available. Standard Breakfast is offered an very good, even if only scrambled eggs are offered as a warm dish. In the evening there is a buffet available but I can not recommend this. In the neighborhood, there is a... More

Shuttle bus to airport available(100 NOK), but not often, taxi to, from airport around 10 min drive for 250 NOK each way. All taxi equipped with credit card reader. Staff very friendly. Continental breakfast from 05:00 included good choice of cold meal, but hot meal only boiled eggs available.... More
