Had booked a superior room which I found comfortable and very large. Could sleep 6 persons (twin, large sleeping couch, bunk bed) and feature a dining table in addition to the sleeping arrangements. Room decor is modern albeit in dark colors so the room always seems dimly lit. Elevator is very noisy. Corridors are dated and worn. Breakfast is served... More

Stayed here one night passing thru the area. The hotel is located in the city square 7 minutes of the highway close to the Swedish border. Upon arriving you will find approximately 10 free parking spots just outside the hotel. Upon entering the hotel the first thing you see is the nice restaurant Egon located next to the hotel giving...

I believe this is Norway in general... 2,5 meter wide double room, 2,2 meter long bed leaves 30 centimeters to pass. Even most Japanese rooms are larger. No in room conveniences like water heater, coffee maker, fridge, iron. One chair in a double room !!!! Bathroom so narrow you need to go sideways to pass

The hotel has a very central location right in the middel of town close to the church. The reception and breakfast area are renovated in a modern and calm style. The new color in Norwegian hotels is grey! Grey is also used in the spacious room which also is renovated. The room feels a little bit dark. The bathroom could... More

When you approach the hotel and enter the lobby the hotel will strike you as new and modern. Unfortunately this feeling will end there. When entering the escalator it's like you're in a 2 star hotel from the 70s. The corridor you exit to is a step up again but still has the 70s look. Then there is the room,... More

Sarpsborg is not the world's center. We are ahead advised that the rooms are very small. It is no exaggeration. Our double room is very very very small. However, it is quite ok. It is solved in a great way and no bad experience - we have room on the fifth floor though. The hotel is quite shabby and needs... More

Very nice hotel (recently renovated) located short walking distance from the main street with all the restaurants. Shopping mall just around the corner. Parking options. Very friendly and welcoming hotel staff.
