We booked this hotel as we failed to find a hotel that didn't involve selling my lung to stay there.
As other posters have stated its an extra avenue of making money to the hospital,reception is meters away from the main entrance of the hospital but it's quite modern, 32" flat screen tv, little writing desk and chair. Bathroom has everything you need, soap pump in shower, plastic cups for drinking. There is a mini fridge if you have drinks that need chilling. We had 2 rooms, a double and a single room + a fold out for one of our boys. It was quiet, clean and a perfect place to rest our aching bones after a huge day at Preikestolen.
Things I didnt like:- no parking included, being a hospital this was a cost factor!! something they need to address to lure more customers driving cars. 24hr parking @ 125 kr a day. If you are lucky enough there are some parking but its a 10 min walk away from the hotel.
I would rate this hotel perfect for back packers on a budget looking for a clean, comfortable modern hotel. I would think its a 10-15 bus ride into centre of Stavanger. Hvent tasted breakfast but its catered from the main canteen that appears to have a decent menu.
