Visited in the snow and hired ski gear for a walk across the frozen lake, amazing scenery. Food was exceptional and the staff very hospitable. As we prepared to leave, we learnt that we were snowed in with no trains running and the hotel looked after us amazingly, at no charge. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 1 night to do the bike ride the next day from Finse to Flam. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean,comfortable and functional - comfy bed, window with a blind and shower/toilet. Having read some of the other reviews, if you come expecting 5 star city style accommodation then you will... More

We weren't actually based at the hotel but a group of researchers staying at a research base nearer to the foot of the glacier, however in the awful weather hotel staff were extremely accommodating whilst waiting for trains and ordering food, and the small shop came in extremely handy as there is nowhere around for a good while and theres...

Beginning of a tour that i would described as "one-of-a-kind". Train up from Flåm to Finse 1222, took us through amazing nature with waterfalls, mountains and train-tracks where i thought only goats could climb....!!! Meeting with Huldra (norwegian myth) singing her exotic song to lure men to be spellbound by her voice and beauty. Arriving Finse 1222 Hotel with nature... More

While this is an historical hotel, it is modern inside. The rooms are very basic (No TV in our room) and the lack of good blinds in the window during summer will definitely ensure you wake up early and get out to enjoy the nature around it. The restaurant has good food but there is no option with respect to... More

My friend and I have never left a travel review. Our experience at Finse 1222 was so trip-saving that we felt compelled to spread the gospel. Neither of us were religious when we showed up to Finse exhausted, dehydrated, and twelve hours late after missing several trains. After Finse 1222, #WEBELIEVE. As they say, awakenings are unpredictable things -- and... More

We were four traveling by bike in the mountains. Our trip started at Haugastøl to Finse yesterday. We were supposed to bike from Finse to Flåm the day after. We were looking forward to a three-course dinner at the hotel Finse 1222. But the headwind was very strong and it was raining. We were numb and cold and had to... More

This hotel was as welcome stop on the Rallarvegen bike ride. Our room was quite simple but clean and comfortable and the showers were fantastic. We had a fabulous 3 course dinner from the dining room looking across the lake to the end of a glacier. The staff throughout the hotel were incredibly friendly and made the overnight stay very...

Stayed over in order to bike the famous Rallarvegen. Fantastic place. Way above our expectations - which were already high. Great hotel with an interesting history, friendly and helpful people and fantastic food.

Everyone in Norway has been beyond friendly, but the staff here took it to another level. They were amazingly accommodating, kind and gracious. From helping us find phone chargers, to packing up our food and racing it out the door so we could catch the train, they were top notch. We messed up our timing and rather than being annoyed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finse 1222 was built in 1909 as part of the Bergen Railway and has since been the gateway to some of Norway's most beautiful and accessible mountain areas. The Hallingskarvet National Park borders to Finse and across the lake Finsevann the mighty Hardangerjokulen glacier rises. Finse 1222 is a family owned hotel run by young and serviceminded people. Allthough the premises are old and some places worn by more than 100 years of service, focus is on providing a hospitable and keen service as well as very good food. The hotel offers bike rental and ski rental. Rooms are basic - we recommend the outdoors! ... more   less
