If you want a place to stay in Flåm, this is the one. The reviews and some pictures don't do it justice. The rooms were big and felt new - the location is great - 100 yards from the train, dock, food - with plenty of parking. The only question mark was the dinner and breakfast but it was good... More

My partner and I enjoyed the room, the food, the service and the activities that we experienced at Frethheim Hotel, Flåm. We booked a duplex luxury room with a Jacuzzi below and the bedroom above. From the upper lookout bedroom we had a wonderful view of the fjord and mountains both day and night. It was worth the extra cost... More

We were traveling with kids, only stayed one night. Easy walk from the Flam Railway. Elegant setting offered a nice respite from the more touristy part of Flam. Lobby and common areas are beautiful and comfortable. The room was standard hotel fare. We had the so-called "mountain view," which turned out to look right onto the trail going up behind... More

This hotel is 3 minutes walk from the Flam Railway and the boat terminal. Wonderful views from the rooms which are finished in a style of a bygone age. Breakfast and service was first rate. plenty of walks to do and a Railway Museum showing the history of Flam is free of charge. The village is very touristy and not... More

We stayed in the American wing which was a part of the original hotel. Very comfortable and a sense of history. All the amenities you would expect and looking over the rose garden towards the busy little port of Flam.

Arriving on the NORWAY IN A NUTSHELL tour from Oslo, our group of high school friends alighted on the train just in front of the beautiful property situated on a slight elevation overlooking the beautiful Norwegian fjords. Flam is a quiet town, that comes alive for 5 months in a year. The hotel gave us a room in the historic... More

Set in a beautiful flam fjord next to the harbour n tourists action, beautiful old building, but the quality of bed more like trampoline which is a share otherwise will be a great stay, our dinner was included in the package, a few exotic Norwegian dish, food quality is good but the service is just ok.

The hotel is advertised as a luxury experience to enjoy the beauty of the fjords. The hotel is located in Flam and although really centric to most of the connections for the Norway in the Nutshell, the hotel experience itself is below what we expected. Rooms are ok, average; nothing spectacular; but the real disappointing is in the lack of... More

Very charming hotel with great history on a beautiful fjord. Great views from the rooms. Wonderful breakfasts. Comfortable rooms, many with balconies. Easy walk to the cute village with shops, restaurants, and activities. Hiking trails behind the hotel including a longer walk to a beautiful waterfall.
