A relatively large hotel in downtown Hønefoss. Very good service, very inexpensive, clean and tidy. An excellent price that includes a full breakfast that was beyond expectations. Highly recommend if looking for a hotel in Hønefoss.

I'm sure this old hotel had charm once, but that charm is long gone. Run-down, 70's style bathrooms with cracked wooden replica walls (smelly), thin walls, you can hear your neighbours snoring (or whatever else they are doing...), non-functioning wifi.... Friendly staff, and ok breakfast on the upside, plus only five minutes from the centre of Hønefoss (which doesn't count...

The grand hotel is an old style hotel...the decor is still from the 70s which some may find cute but for others not so..for instance the bathroom was wooden walled....! The curtains were too thin and one bad point is there seems to be a lot of cars driving nearby...so your room lights up. The breakfast is good though.. The...

A old hotel with a nice dining room and an average breakfast. My sleeping room was small with a rather primite shower. The showerhead was fixed and wasent possible to adjust. A rather small refurbishment is recommended at least to get rid of the nylon shower curtain. The room was supplied with just one very small pillow. No night service,...

Hotel is old and somewhat worn, but clean and not too expensive. Bed was good and windows could be opened, which means no air condition, thank you (!). Good breakfast, no other meals, but adequate restaurants nearby. No night service, you get your own key to open front door. Be prepared for some step climbing (not too challenging). Remember to...

We spent one night at this hotel. Could not check in until 4:00pm and had to pay for parking in the rear of the building. Hotel has seen better days. It was very dark and welcoming at first-but then the grandeur of the place became evident. the room was spotlessly clean & had lots of character. Breakfast was typical-but the...

It was surely grand once, and I have to admit that there is some of that dated glamour atmosphere still lingering. But that aside, what a lousy hotel. Smallish rooms, rickety bed, bathroom with half the lightbulbs missing, toilet seat broken (and won't flush every time), wi-fi on and off, breakfast layout on the thin side. Noisy street in front...

The Hotel is old and would do With some work on it, however there is a nice atmosphere and style. The breakfast was standard and well made, so no complaints. But do you want a modern top notch Place look somewhere else ;)

Extremely noisy hotel, as it is located in the heart of the town. One can hear the car traffic, the trains passing by, people partying on the streets (especially on the weekends) .. The rooms were clean but small. Cold breakfast served in a rather dark room

Had one night in this hotel. Rooms are small and dated. My bathroom where terrible. Breakfast was far bellow norwegian hotel average. Should be described as a hostel and not a hotel.
