“Functional, with friendly staff”
Reviewed July 20, 2008

Very friendly staff at reception. Spacious clean room with a sofa bed for kids. Beds were comfortable.

Free parking outside the hotel.

Wireless access was free, which was a plus as there was not much on the TV.

Breakfast was fairly average - nothing to write home about.

Main complaints were the heat of the room (temperatures were close to 30deg the previous day) and the street noise early in the morning - even though the room was on a side road.

There was not a lot of choice in Kongsberg. The normal budget option of the youth hostel was only a liitle less expensive than the Best Western, and the rooms there were very basic.

Kongsberg is a very small, yet quite attractive town. As far as I know, this hotel is one of the two hotels in town, and the better one.
I had the top floor room with fire place, balcony and wooden floor.
Very spacious room. Furniture is a bit dated, but still ok. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast buffet was ok.

Stayed June 2007

After the Kongsberg vandererhjem, I moved into this hotel for a subsequent week.

Upon opening the door to my room (in the rear extension), I was pleasantly suprised asto how large it was. It was huge! The room standard was very good, with a comfortable bed, sofa and wooden flooring. The main comfort complaint I had was that it was a little cool, but the temperature was -18 degrees outside. The shower floor is heated, such a nice feeling! And it had a digital bedside clock radio, no more squinting at the time on the tiny TV clock at 4am!!

The breakfast food was a standard continental affair, with plenty of choice. I never tried the evening menu, but prices are comparable with good nearby restaurants. I would say though that the ambience of the restaurant falls far short of what other places in town offer.

Depsite the comforts, like most hotels, they put a rip-off price between you and certain basics. Wireless tnternet access is 120Kr per day (or 200kr per week), but there is a machine in the lobby where you can use the internet for free after 4pm. Laundry is on the face of it, obscenely expensive, costing 90kr for a pair of jeans to be cleaned for example. They tell me however that if I bundle clothes together then I can get a bulk cleaning bill of 150kr. Still expensive, but it's within most business peoples expense allowances.

Overall I'd stay here again for upto 2 weeks, and on that basis this hotel comes recommended.

The staff are all very friendly and extreamly helpful. I cannot recomend this hotel enough. Just for Comfort factor alone it is out standing. Kongsberg is not a large place and the hotel is well within walking distance of anywhere you may wish to go in Kongsberg itself. However if you wish to go skiing or visit the silver mines you will have to get a taxi (and they are not that expensive). My vote the best hotle in Kongsberg, and I did stay there for nearly 3 months. Keep up the excellent standards.
