It is a small room with an even tinier, dirty bathroom. There were hairs and dust stuck to the tiles and the shower was very sloppily cleaned. If you have long legs your knees will be pushed up against the bathroom door while sitting on the toilet. The shower door is creaky and moves into the shower, so it can...

I stayed here during a business trip to a nearby company. I have never seen such a small room before, the length of the bed filled the full width of the room. There was many construction workers staying in the hotel which probably started the day a bit earlier than me, so there was some noise from doors slamming around...

The hotel is located near the airport, 20 minute drive from the centre of Stavanger. The hotel is clean and rather modern. The staff is very nice and helpful. However rooms are very small. Good breakfast.

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...

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...
