Reading all the reviews about the crammed nonexisting breakfast and outdated rooms, we had quite low expectations. Room was actually very nice and modern, bathroom small, but useable and breakfast exceeded our expectations. Although room for breakfast being small, being bit early or late to breakfast has no feeling of rush or crammedness. Service was always nice.

This is just an average hotel. The people were nice and it was clean, but we didn't even get fresh glasses in our room each day or extra toilet paper. The rooms are very dark and sparsely furnished and quite small. Didn't get Internet for two days. Many, many hotels in Norway offer fabulous breakfasts - it's a bit of... More

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
