4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We came up on the boat from Flam. This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room was large with a balcony which looked out on the water and the fjords. Check-in went well considering that most of the people on the boat were staying here. The buffet dinner was good and so was breakfast.

It was amazing. Ideal location and friendly staff. The building itself was very interesting architecture and filled with fascinating Norwegian art. Also, free row boats to take out and a life sized chess board! Excellent hiking nearby. Clientele was older people and families but a great place for a relaxing vacation for any age. Hooray for Kwiknes!

We stayed in the modern building that isn't so up to date on decor. We requested a room higher up and with a balcony. We were pleased to get a room on the top floor, floor 8. Views were magnificent. Place was very quiet and had a romantic feel to it. Staff was very accommodating. Restaurant had good options for... More

A warm welcome at reception, together with a porterage offer instead of a demand for a credit card. Our travel agent had recommended we have an "historical room with a view". We happened to be given the upper balcony, central room -the royal box? as it were -directly overlooking the fjord -I would want to give my review 5 out... More

Our visit to this Hotel was spectacular! I let them know we were on a 30 year anniversary trip and they took over from there. Fabulous top floor room with the proverbial $1 Million view and a nice fruit tray. Can't say enough. We were in the newer wing, so our room was up to date. We had a balcony... More

It is more the location that we loved than the actual rooms. We stayed in the newer wing which felt a bit like being in a cruise ship. The older part of the hotel is absolutely lovely which is where the free breakfast buffet is served. The view from the rooms was amazing. We went on a nature walk which... More

There is a marked difference between the character and feel of the old part of the hotel and the more utilitarian appearance of the "new wing". Most people will be housed in the new wing so if you're desperate to be in the old part of the hotel, make a very early reservation. It is true that the new wing... More

We stayed at the Kviknes Hotel only one night, but would have loved to have stayed longer! We visited Kviknes as a family of four with another family of four. Each of us booked a suite in the historic building and we were not disappointed. The rooms were historic with an old time beauty. The balcony and views were magnificent.... More

The hotel needs some serious renovations. My room was outdated and even had chipping paint in the bathroom. Not that you are in the room a lot. It is centrally located and close to port. Beautiful views. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. The breakfast and dinner buffets were excellent.

We stayed here based on the good reviews and were disappointed by our room in the apartment block. The room was old and tired with very few amenities like shampoo or a bar fridge. I really don't have anything good to say about this room.It was the biggest letdown of our whole trip. Really disappointed considering the money that was... More
