“Shabby, not chic”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

The hotel is completely rundown and needs 100% renovation. It was probably nice in the seventies, not any longer. Even the beds are run-down and so soft that a good night`s sleep is impossible. I am surprised that Choice Hotels operates a hotel with this standard.
The only positive that can be said is nice location and friendly reception staff.

Tried to check into this place a few hours early, as we pulled into town around noon. Were told we couldn't check in till 3, which I could live with if the room were not yet ready. But it was ready -- as long as we were able to pay extra (never heard that one before). But we were allowed to carry our bags over to a storage room and lift them up onto a high shelf for later pickup. We got this room through a travel agency and thought they had made a mistake, as we had been booked at really classy places throughout Norway and this was quite a few steps below those in quality. We pointed this out to the front desk person, who said there was no mistake -- just that "none of the rooms had undergone renovation or had a view." The room wasn't a dump or extremely small, just entirely charmless. It had a funky little tv that wouldn't deliver its stations as the satellite dish apparently got askew overnight during some strong winds. The front staff were not unpleasant -- they just seemed bored.

Did like the breakfast buffet and the room was nicer than our own room, but overall the hotel ended up being pretty much a place to sleep. Nothing awful, nothing very good.

Room Tip: Don't expect one here.

Stavanger hotels offer mediocre quality at high prices. This hotel is in a concrete shopping centre from the 70s and is pretty spartan. Breakfast was acceptable. The location is great, really close to the city centre. The room I had in summer really needed air conditioning and had old-fashioned windows that could be opened but could not be set partially open. Comfortable sleep and good bathroom.

After Bergen, our expectations were greatly reduced, so we were pleased from our reception to housekeeping to breakfast we experienced capable friendly staff. Linn at the front desk was particularly helpful with directions and suggestions. The room is basic and compact. It was clean and comfortable and the tv large.We have ceased being amazed at how expensive everything is in Norway. Must compare prices to hotels in Stavanger not back home. (Unless you hail from NYC or London)

Conveniently located for visitors planning to get up early to visit the Pulpit Rock. Close to the port ,restaurants train station and bus station. However, I find that it was overpriced for what they offered in the room. There was no soap (only liquid soap), no shampoo, no conditioner or shower cap. Whenever a hair dryer was needed I had to go to get it at the front desk. When asked the staff why there were no amenities in the room their answer was "this is a cheap hotel" . The positive side was that it was very clean, and breakfast was included.

Value for money accommodation. Great breakfast spread which was included in the room cost. The airport shuttle stops right in front of the hotel. 5 mins walk from the ferry pier when arriving by boat. 10 mins walk from railway station. Ideal for a budget traveller, especially when comparing against other expensive hotels around Norway.
The single room was a bit small, but digital tv was amazing.

I stayed here for one night on a business trip, and the first thing to hit me as I entered the room for the first time was the *heat* - it really was unbearably hot in the room, which was facing the sun. 2 of the windoes opened, but only a tiny bit. I ended up wedging a book in one just to keep it opened about 1cm! There was no air conditioning, with only a small desk fan provided to try to stop you combusting. Not nice trying to sleep in conditions like that.

The room was clean and quite spacious (I think I was given a free upgrade to a bigger room than I'd paid for), but those are the only kind things I can say about it.

The bed (well, beds, 2 singles pushed together in Norwegian style) was honestly the most uncomfortable I've slept in for years - it felt and sounded like it was going to collapse every time I moved!

Aside from one in rural Peu (where it's understandable), the shower here was the weakest I'd had the misfortune to use in many years... it was more of a light drizzle than a shower!

Otherwise, everything seemed *really* old, from the couch to the carpets, from the windows to the shower - all circa 1950!

I know that many hotels in Norway are showing their age, but here they *really* need to invest some serious cash in this place to get it up to standard. I will certainly not be returning to this dump.
