“Small rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Stayed for 3 days for a conference. Quirky hotel but good service and excellent breakfast. Has no recreational facilities but you can pay to use excellent pool and gym next door. Main problem was the size of the room - which was too small and compared poorly with the Radisson Blu Garden hotel where I also stayed. Hotel is a little way from main town.

Room Tip: Check how big a room they are giving you when you book

I stayed there 2 days/nights on a conference. Very good conference rooms; from the very small to a very large on(Cosmos). The last one we had a mutual dinner with show; in total approx. 730 persons on 73 tables.
That worked very,very good.
The breakfast; very good.
Lunch and dinners....well, well it depends on"what you pay,is what you get". Not too good. I must admit.
The room; nice,clean,a comfortable bed; at least for me.

This a beautiful new hotel, but!!! the room was so small we could'nt open our suitcase unless on top of bed. Only place to store closed was infront of the exit door. We felt as though we were in small cabin of a cruise ship. Smallest room of all hotels travelling Scandinavia.

Room Tip: ask to check size of room.

I had a great experience while I was there at a party with my job. Much space for everyone to feel comfortable in, great service from the employees and good arrangement from the staff handling our big party. Somethings could have been done better, but with almost 1000 people drinking beer it can also be a challenge for the staff! If you are going to the hotel, be sure to walk by the reception and talk to a guy named Erik if you need anything or have some problems and need help. He can fix ANYTHING!! I did not stay at the hotel, but I got the chance to see some of the rooms they got. Some where really small and some where really big. I would love to bring my wife for a night at the hotel to stay at one of those big rooms. The bar at the top floor had a fantastic view. If I could, I would book the whole bar as my hotelroom!

Room Tip: According to my colleagues who was staying at the hotel, you should ask for a deluxeroom. They where...

This rather new hotel has a cheap design, and the surroundings are not so charming. Tiny rooms and you can't open the windows. On the plus side is the food, the breakfast and lunch buffets are delicious!

What an amazing place. One of the best things about hotel was the included breakfast buffet really gets you to a good start. From arrival to departure the staff was unbeatable - cheerful, friendly, well presented and quite charming. They were also very fluent in english. The room was great located in the 8th floor, always clean and with an amazing view to some place called Munkholmen.
Try it :)

I love this hotel... very modern and really good staff. The hotel room was fairly big and with a beautiful view. The breakfast is excellent. It is also a nice touch to have fruit for the guests...you can always grab an apple around the hotel.

The staff is very friendly and very helpful - everything I asked about - they had the answer.

Perfect hotel!
