We stayed here for one night as part of the Norway in a Nutshell trip. The hotel is just steps away from the train and harbor. The whole area is very, very tiny and consists of a couple hotels, a couple tourist shops, a couple of restaurants and a convenience store.
The hotel was very basic--for those in the U.S, think Days Inn. Room size was okay, bathroom was okay. Both were a bit run down but clean. We had a small balcony but not much of a view. Since we were only there for the night, that didn't really matter. The place was not very soundproof, so it was easy to hear the children staying staying above us as they ran around. As for outside noise, Flam is so small there is no need to worry about traffic noises, etc.
The staff were first-rate--extremely friendly and helpful. We ate dinner in the hotel and partook of a very good buffet. The waiter was very friendly and gave us a grounding in traditional Norwegian dishes.
As for Flam itself--the scenery is absolutely breathtaking and the train ride from Oslo to Flam was one of the most beautiful I have ever experienced.
If you like five-star hotels and the amenities that come with that, this place is not for you. If you want a clean, basic room for a night, it is just fine.
