We stayed one night in summer and would say it is good as a base if you want to go skiing or hiking. Wouldnt recommend staying larger parties or over a longer period as the livingroom/kitchen is tiny and not much comfortable space. We stayed in the second biggest one. Modern apartments and they have everything you need.

The apartment hotel was perfect, clean, comfortable, very spacious and beautifully decorated. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We checked out very early for a long drive to the airport and I left a small bag behind with prescription glasses and they were so kind and professional. They made arrangements with me and mailed them to me. I highly... More

Everything is great. Parking right under the houses. Excellent rooms with excellent views and interiors. All facilities that you'd want and even a swimming pool that kids can use. Kitchen is equipped to do the cooking if you'd want to save some money for the restaurants. Stands next to skiing slope which was maintained with snow even despite absence of... More

Havsdalsgrenda provides some epic appartments with more equipment than you'd think you need (except linens and towels, which you can rent for about 10$). The amenities included in your stay is rather good as well: Fitness room, heated underground garage, swimming pool (though small) and ski slopes basically on the front porch. A lot people here on Tripadvisor complain about... More

We stayed at Havsdalsgrenda over New Year at the end of 2015. We'd flown to Oslo, taken the train to Geilo and then a taxi up the hill (240 NOK). Having a car has some advantages, but it's definitely not required. On arriving at the train station we stocked up at the supermarket (2 minutes walk away) before phoning for... More

You need a car to take full advantage of this place. The self-catering apartments are modern with wood floors. They are well insulated and well equipped. A small communal pool, fitness room, bar and cafe complete the set up. You are right next to the downhill ski area and a short ski to the cross-country ski routes. At the bottom... More

Before we arrived we didn't expect too much from this accomodation during the summer season, but rather a stop-over while on our way from Oslo to Bergen.
