We stayed a weekend mid february 2014 at this hotel. Very nice common areas but you can smell the stinking fireplace as soon as you open your room door. The rooms are poorly ventilated and difficult to dry clothes in. For some, it may be so bad that it ruins your sleep (if you are used to fresh air in your home). There is no common drying room facilities neither. Our toilet was continously flushing water, so condenced water formed droplets on the outside of it and made the bathroom floor wet. In-floor heating on the bathroom did not work.
All in all, Hovden is a great place to stay, but just don't stay inside.
