The selling point for my family was their afternoon make your own Norwegian waffles - yum! Cozy, clean hotel in historic building. Super-friendly and helpful staff, central location, main pedestrian shopping street only minutes away. Includes afternoon waffles, evening buffet, morning breakfast and all-day coffee/tea. And wifi. Nice displays of local culture and history in public areas.

Stayed: August 2011, traveled with family

A small hotel that has the atmosphere of a hostel where you can meet people from around the world. We had breakfast, lunches and a light snack provided daily with unlimited non-alcoholic beverages. The staff were very hard working, the front desk staff would clear plates in the eating area. The real treat was the waffles with jam and sour cream offered at 3:00pm everyday. Coming off the ski hill coupled with a hot chocolate was something to look forward to. The only thing that would improve this hotel was to have a fitness room. Lillehammer is a place that I would certainly like to visit again, maybe in the summer/fall for some hiking, although the skiing was awesome.

Excellent service at the reception, but they said when we arrived on Saturday that they had gluten-free bread for breakfast, but they did not and this was on a Sunday with no shops open. After some time they found some gluten-free crackers (knekkebrød), but they did not taste very well. Talking about breakfast, they claimed that they could not serve bacon & eggs because it would give too much smoke in the breakfast-room.. Disappointing, and maybe they need to refurbish their kitchen? Breakfst was ok. You can make your own waffles in the afternoon and there is an evening buffet with one hot dish. Rooms ver adequate. Summing up, next time we will stay in the same hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a room at the back of the hotel.

I've only stayed at this hotel once, but I'll be back.

The hotel is situated with entrance to the main street in Lillehammer, and a two minute walk to the pedestrian zone, with some cosy shops. By a cup of coffee at "one hand clapping".

The hotel itself is cosy, they serv late supper for the guests if you feel for a snack before dinner or going to bed.

The rooms are comfy, and got everything you need from a hotel room. Clean room, good bed and good bathroom.

I like the personal touch, and the possibility to get a "light" meal during the evening, i think it's served from 6 - 9 pm. The hotel don't have a restaurant, but Bryggerikjelleren is a short walk from the hotel.

The hotel is placed near the pedestrian area, the parking is easy and it is free in the evening until the next morning.
Our room was not very big, but confortable and clean. The real plus point is the free evening buffet which is varied enough to statisfy different tastes. Morning breakfast is also included. Friendly staff.

Based on Tripadvisor reviews, we chose this hotel and were happy with our choice. Easy to find, the Hotel Hammer is located in the central part of Lillehammer, one block from the pedestrians only main shopping street. Free Parking is available on the street in front of the hotel and in a rear courtyard parking lot as well.
Welcomed in the pleasing lobby by a friendly staffer( lived and surfed in Hawaii for while), we asked for and were assigned a quiet room in the rear of the hotel, away from the street in front. The hotel consists of a 3-story building and a 5-story annex. The elevator only goes to the third floor, while reaching the higher floors involves stair climbing - no fun with heavy luggage. Our 3rd floor room came with two separate, narrow beds, a stocked fridge, a boxy TV, no safe, light colored wood furnishings, all basic but very clean. The bath with a shower, wall mounted soap dispenser, and towels (hard and well beyond their useful life) was functional and clean as well. Room location and double paned windows provided for a quiet night of sound sleep.
As do all Clarion facilities, this hotel as well offers free food to its guests. In the afternoon coffee, tea, waffles and pastries besides fruits, and in the evening a buffet with warm and cold selections. Wine, beer, etc. is sold by the receptionist. The breakfast spread was sufficient to get one started into the day. Considering the free food offering and the typical cost of eating a dinner in a Norwegian restaurant, this hotel is a bargain.

Good sized room, great beds, duvets and soft pillows allows for good sleep quality. Nice complimentary evening buffet, plus great breakfast make this hotell a good choice. The owner seems to have realized that meek water pressure is not a good selling point, albeit environmentally friendly, and the shower now allowed this guest to rinse out shampoo and soap from hair... Free wifi in rooms and free parking in courtyard. Pleasant reception staff and excellent cleaning. View from some rooms to a big courtyard mural depicting trolls and traditional Lillehammer sights and scenery.
