To stay at Mølla hotell is a must if you are staying overnight in Lillehammer! The rooms are nice and cosy, the staff is helpful and professional and the food is delicoius. If you stay here you must take the lift to the top and enjoy a strawberry daiquri along with the wonderful view of Lillehammer.

If you are coming to see all the beautiful countryside, find another location. If you like being a 5 minute walk from the train station and just down the street from the shopping street and restaurant area in town this is a good spot.
The hotel is a converted grain mill from way back and was converted for the 1994 Olympics. Let's call the place "quaint" and leave it at that.
Rooms are on the small side but adequate. Rooms and property were clean and I rate it "Very Good" because the staff is friendly and helpful and the adjoining restaurant was great for breakfast and served a decent dinner.
I would stay here again, even on a leisure trip.

Good central hotel, very friendly hotel offering huge breakfast in characterful restaurant. Lots of stairs/ lift but views from room certainly worth it - go high.

Recommend toboggan run, loads of fun and v fast. 20 mins up hill from hotel - head to Olympic ski jump, across field and then left.

The Molla Hotel is situated close to the railway station and the main pedestrian street of Lillehammer. Rooms on the railway side have great views of the lake and surrounding countryside. The room was clean and welcoming but nothing special. The main attraction apart from its locality was the fantastic breakfast served in the adjoining restaurant. Almost too many choices so make sure you're hungry. The front desk staff were unfailingly polite and helpful, always a good sign in my book.

Room Tip: Lakeside for the views

My family usually stays at this hotel while visiting Lillehammer and we have always been happy in the past.
Our last stay was unfortunately not as good as the previous ones.

- First of all the location of the room that we got was small and with a terrible location (stay away from rooms 11 - 14 on bottom floor). The room was connected with neighbor room by a door and we could hear everything that went on next door. Complained the first night and was told that there were no other rooms available. Terrible service by the person on night duty.
- The parking cost NOK 75 per day and the parking lot fills up very quickly. There should be more parking and free of charge

- On the other hand, the location of the hotel is great. Just a few steps from the charming pedestrian area.
- Also, traveling with a child the adjacent Egon restaurant comes in very handy. We enjoyed our dinners out on the patio in the sunshine at night and were generally happy with the service/food.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms 11 - 14, on the same floor as the reception/restaurant. Small, cramped and nois...
