Flam Marina & Apartments
Ranked #2 of 5 Specialty Lodging in Flam
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stayed at Flam Marina and Apartments for one night in late May (2013) during our "Norway in a Nutshell" itinerary. While both Fretheim Hotel and Flåmsbrygga Hotel did not have any availability during our stay, the Norway In a Nutshell site only gave us the option of Heimly Pensjonat. After reading all of the reviews on TA, we decided to book Flam Marina and Apartment separately via Booking.com.

The hotel is a short walk from the train station (450ft, quarter mile). It has a perfect view of the Fjord. Every room faces the water front, so I don't think you can get a bad room. Simply by location, I am convinced that the view we got from this hotel is far better than any rooms in Fretheim Hotel and Flåmsbrygga Hotel.

We stayed at apartment #8, first floor, center unit. Our unit had two bedrooms - one with double bed, and another with a bunk bed. The rooms are basic. The unit was equipped with a full kitchen - a refrigerator with freezer, a microwave, and 4-electric burners with an oven. Free wifi and worked well. A good sized flat panel TV with CNN.

We purchased groceries from the nearby super market (Coop) behind the train station and enjoyed all of our meals at home with the gorgeous view. It was a perfectly relaxing. Very lovely.

The unit did not provide shampoo and conditioner, and the provided soap was also tiny. No facial tissue (Kleenex) and no hair dryer. So make sure you bring your own! Also, the sheets for the bedding were provided but not made; we had to put it on ourselves which wasn't a big issue.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Flam Marina and Apartments!

We came only for the showers and wifi and were greeted by a charming Swedish lady who kindly admitted us to the showers and even gave us a bit of soap. We were probably really dirty and shabby after a night in the mountains, but we welcomed in a kind and cordial way. The wifi worked great, but it was a bit sad that the beer selection did not include Ægir...But that's too much to ask! :)

I took my visiting friends from UK to see "Norway in a nutshell" and we stayed overnight in this self-catering apartment to have a rest from the long winding scenic, fantastic views along the way. The apartment is clean, very quiet with a porch at the back of the apartment built in the water itself. Kitchen is well equipped although sadly the microwave was not working and the staff at the reception is gone for the day. We informed that we will check out at 0900 hrs next day and we were told to just leave the apartment keys on the table inside the apartment when there is no one in the reception. The area is safe, very peaceful and there's a restaurant and hotels around to eat if need be. I will go back to this apartment again but for longer days to enjoy the view at the back balcony!

We stayed here in a very cold week in March, and even though it was the off-season, had a lovely stay. The view is to die for and I guess the perk to an end of winter stay is the fact that you basically have the whole place to yourselves!!! As mentioned in some other reviews, there was no restaurant, however, the supermarket is only about a 10 minute walk away and has everything you need to have a home cooked meal and a cosy night in. The apartment is really clean and comfortable and again, is all about the magnificent view x

The view from our apartment was absolutely amazing I understand why this is the selling point of this property. The apartment was clean and the beds were comfortable. As we came in winter the restaurant wasn't open which was fine, they did offer us frozen pizza to cook in the room however I am glad we declined as when we went to the small supermarket in town they were selling the same pizzas for 1/2 of the cost. The one down side was the bedroom didn't have any electrical outlets and also didn't have a radiator, they provided a portable heater but without anywhere to plug it in we had to have it in the lounge area and point it down the corridor towards the room which wasn't ideal. Overall this was an average apartment with an AMAZING view.

It looks like all the apartments in this property face the beautiful fjord, a calm body of blue water. I have attached here a photo of this magnificent view of water flanked by mountains on both sides. This photo was taken from our apartment's balcony. As it was winter (we were there for one night, Dec 12), everything seemed to be in blue, white and grey. The whole scene was very calming for all of us. We certainly enjoyed the freezing cold and the snow. We don't have them back home in Singapore.

We came to this beautiful place, as part of the "Norway in a Nutshell" package. We had an apartment with 2 separate bedrooms for 4 adults/2 couples. Very cozy place indeed. The whole apartment was very clean. Beds/pillows were clean and comfortable (I guess when you are very tired after a long walk in the snow, any bed will be comfortable). Everywhere outside, except for the roads, was covered with ankle-deep snow. It was very cold (-5 deg C or lower) for us but we were well prepared for it. However, within the apartment, it was warm and cozy, and the bathroom's floor was heated - really wonderful when one is taking a shower.

It had a well-equipped kitchen, where we could cook our meals, and a small dining area for us to enjoy our meals, drinks, chat and at the same to feast our eyes on the beautiful views outside.

There is one slight flaw in this otherwise very beautiful place and that is you have to walk for about 500 m from the train station to this lovely apartment. Walking in the freezing cold with luggage and backpacks on a little uphill road with sides mostly covered with thick snow and some other areas covered with hardened ice which can cause bodily injuries if you are not careful. After enjoying the cozy apartment and enjoying the stunning from your balcony or dining area for x day(s), you have to again walk that same 500 m with all your bags back to the train station or to the nearby pier if you are taking a boat out, like we did on our way to Bergen. Anyway, walking is a very good exercise. We totally enjoyed the walk.

By the way, our apartment had free Wifi and a TV. The reception is located in the restaurant. The staff manning the reception was a very sweet young lady. We didn't try the foods there though. We prepared all our meals in the apartment. Here is a tip. When you arrive at the station and before going up to the apartment, suggest you visit the nearby supermarket and shops first. You probably need some stuff for your meals or drinks or for some personal needs.

Overall, I find Flam Marina & Apartments a truly wonderful place to relax and to enjoy mother nature. Cozy and warm within apartment with stunning views outside. Despite the very cold condition, it was a very nice feeling walking outside. It was so peaceful, so quiet and any place we saw or looked was really a postcard view - absolutely stunning!

Room Tip: None. Every room seems to face the same direction - the beautiful pool of water called Fjord.

Love this place!!

My husband and I booked the 'Norway in a Nutshell Tour'. Most people do this self guided tour in a day, but we opted to do it over three days. So for our first night, we booked this place. The tour got into Flam at about 1pm. We walked with our bags to the hotel with no worries (we're on a 7 month holiday, so they're not small bags!). The station is on the port, as is the apartments, it was a flat 6 minute walk along the deck running along the water to the apartment. The deck was slightly slippery, so take care, but nothing to be worried about, it was fine and today was quite wet. It's a beautiful walk!!

The reception is in the restaurant and the lady who gave us our keys and information, was lovely. The restaurant looked fantastic too with reasonable prices (surprising for Norway!).

The apartment itself has the most stunning view. The balcony looks over to town, down the fjord and snow capped mountains. (Im pretty sure all of the apartments have a view and balcony). It's so peaceful!

The apartment is simple, but still very comfortable, cozy and quite charming. It's very clean with heated floating floorboards, a small lounge area, timber dining table with four chairs which overlooks the balcony and beautiful views, nice soft lighting with a kitchenette, two basic bedrooms and a basic bathroom.

I had read the reviews of this place before we arrived and expected something below average, (it was in a great location and a great price, so we booked it regardless of the reviews. When we arrived, it made me so sad that people were so negative about this place. What has society become when we are so picky over the smallest thing like having to put a sheet on your bed, finding a used stocking in the bin or having to walk 5 minutes to get to this place? - possibly the most scenic and beautiful 5 minutes of your life. I can only shake my head.

This place is so lovely!!

Room Tip: I believe all of the rooms have a balcony and view. There are two floors, so if you are worried ab...
