Tried the breakfast and in the evening their meal-of-the-day as well as their Kex beer and can't find anything to complain about really. Nice staff, room enough to sit, lounge, quiet AND internet access for us geeks....what more does one want.

Good value. Fun place with a lot going on, and great people working there to help with everything. Rooms were very clean, beds extremely comfortable, and enough bathrooms and showers to go around. Stay here for sure.

My first impression here was that I was bothering the guy behind the bar. We came in and sat down and this guy did not once acknowledge that we were there with a hello or a sit anywhere you like or the menu is over there. He sat with a sulky face writing in a moleskin, probably about the hardships of working in a trendy restaurant in an western country. When I came over to order he was even more sulky and annoyed. I observed him treat other customers in much the same way. We ordered salads which were fine, one chicken and the other red beet. We were just ordering from the lunch menu so the selection wasnt that great. we left hungry and annoyed at having spent money only to be still hungry (the only other options were fish, soup or a 3800 kr steak). So all in all my message to the owners is get happier and more polite wait staff that enjoy interacting with other people and dont sit around sulking making the customers feel like they are interupting the bartenders poetry writing. Kudoos on the decor though, but I guess they already know that.
