“Not up to standard”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Norway is no cheap place to stay but usually the hotels offer high quality. This is not the case for the Clarion at the airport. The room we had was not only grubby and in need of a thorough cleaning, but it needed also a good renovation. The beds were very tiny even for a small person and to top it all: the shuttle from the airport runs only every 30 minutes and costs 140 kr (20 Euros).

We chose this property purely on the basis of convenience. There is an efficient shuttle bus every half hour from the airport to the hotel (cost AUD 12 per person). Hotel check-in was polite and quick. The rooms was fine with comfortable beds and a serviceable bathroom. For dinner there was a choice of a buffet or a limited a la carte selection. We checked out before breakfast began but even then there was a selection of cereals/yoghurt/toast which was fine for our needs. There are similar hotels in the area but I have nothing negative to say about this one.

I've been here at 7 or 8 occasions during business seminars. Never payed for the stay myself so cannot comment on the price. Food has improved vastly over the years. Big breakfast buffet and can find just about everything. Some annoying things. Their are 2 elevators in the lobby. Slow and old and in need of modernizing. Rooms are nice. Desk is there . Beds are a little small but comfortable. Would be nice to have a outlet on the wall so I don't have to crawl and plug out the desk lamp to charge my computer. I have never been woken up by airplane noises so if your a light sleeper i say this hotel is a good choice. Free voucher for the bus on return trip to the airport is provided in the lobby.

Room Tip: Stay further down the hallways to avoid noise from elevator lobby

The hotel is situated a short buss ride away from the airport. The shuttle bus costs 70 nok. The lobby and resturant is nice. The food was good and varied. The room I had was ok, but could have been a bit it bigger. Stayed 2 nights for a meeting. I had a plesant stay and would recomend the hotel. The hotel also has fitness and spa, but I did not use them.

Nice facility with a friendly staff, I had an early morning flight and was pleasantly surprised ti find the buffet open at 5 am. Hotel also provides courtesy bikes for the guests to use, so it made for a quick, pleasant trip to see the flight museum located close by. Only downside is the pricey bus ride to the airport (around 12 U.S. dollars, one way)

Room Tip: all rooms appears to be noise free.

OK for one night, but overpriced with very small rooms and small beds. Rooms do not have air conditioning which is particularly bad in summer since the windows only open a few centimetres! Airport shuttle costs 70 NOK (10 EUR) one-way although only a few minutes drive. Transfer to town by airport train costs another 175 NOK (25 EUR) one way, so one visit to town and back costs a total of 70 EUR (shuttle+train)! On the positive side, rooms are quiet and the room rate includes both free WiFi and breakfast.

Thank you for your review. The window can be open as normal, but it is a safety stop. The only thing you have to do, is to pull it down and then open. I'm sorry that you didnt informed the reception - we could have been helping you with it.
The shuttlebus is 70 NOK/pers as for all the other hotels in Gardermoen, but I can really recommend our Park, Stay & Fly-offer where you have parking and shuttlebus included in the roomprice. Price from 495.-/pers

Stayed overnight for two day conference. Rooms were decent and conference facilities pretty decent too.

Staff were friendly although seemed a bit stressed.

Sometimes queues were a bit long at reception.
