Best Western Fagerborg Hotel A/S
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Lillestrom
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Hey this place does what it says on the tin. The hotel boasts that it is the oldest business in Lillestrom, and it shows. But it is friendly and the rooms larger than other rooms in the town. It was reasonably clean although there was a lack of attention to details in the room servicing (cups not washed).

The breakfast was comprehensive and fresh, in a pleasant, if old fashioned. The hotel is well placed for local restaurants and shopping. It also has excellent free wifi.

I would stay here in the unlikely event that I find myself in Lillestrom!

I stayed two nights from tuesday to thursday and had a room at top (4.) floor. My experience of the hotel was that the reception was very friendly and warm, room, bed and bathroom were very comfortable and clean and everything was functioning properly. Also, it was very quiet although more than half of ther rooms were booked.

The hotel is quite old, but reasonably well kept, and during my visit they were renovating something donwstairs. Not trying to hide the age and tradition is a bonus for me. Even the (obviously original) elevator felt cozy. I really don't like staying in standard business hotels where I can't recognize where I am when waking up, always in exactly similar conditions.

Breakfast was good enough and selection clearly better than mentioned in some of the previous reviews.

Room Tip: The last room towards north-east in top floor (room 407) is isolated without any wall neighbours. Th...

Stayed for a few nights here in october 2013. This hotel could definetely use some upgrades. But this could be looked over. However the breakfast is less than interesting with only bread and a small selection of spreads. And if you go there during a weekend expect a lot of noise from the downstairs disco and pub. I also had my car parked at the hotel parking lot and someone kicked in the door during the night, resulting in a huge bill from the repair shop.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as far away from the pub as possible during the weekend.

This is my 5th night. I was to stay one more but I can't take it. Don't get me wrong the Front Desk staff are fantastic, as are the restaurant staff, but the rest is not acceptable.

Here goes my tail of woe:

Day One: Can I have some tissues?
Day Two: I am still waiting for the tissues. No, I would prefer not to use toilet paper. And, I seem to be missing my shirt. (I ended up finding it under the bed covers)
Day Three: Can I have the shampoo dispenser refilled in the shower?
Day Four: Can I have the shampoo dispenser refilled in the shower? Yes, I know I asked yesterday. Oh, and I have to sit on a towel when I am at the desk chair because my clothes stick to it? (By the way I am still sitting on the towel as I write this).
Day Five at 7:50am: Can you please put some more scrambled eggs in the heater trays please? Oh, why not? It's not even 8am. What's that? You don't understand English anymore? Huh...funny about that.

I'm not sure what other reviewers found good about Lillestrom. It's a long way out of Oslo with nothing much to recommend itself. I was here for work. I can't take this anymore. Tomorrow I am changing hotels.

It's too late for me - save yourselves. Great front desk. Friendly restaurant. Good dinner chef. But until they get their housekeeping in order and the breakfast team sorted, just move on.

Stayed at this hotel for one night... The hotel itself is ok. Very outdated furnishing, rooms were ok, beds ok. The tv in our room was a horrible and cheap tv with bad sound. Kind staff, but few parking spots, so we had to park in a street nearby. Breakfast was bad...

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Checked in about 2200 and was greeted by pleasant receptionist.

Room not bad . But very dusty and needed a bit of a update. Shower good .

Had a comfy double bed ..

Nice view over looking the Main Street and church .

Due to Norways extreme alcohol laws one night had a small tin of Pilsner beer from the hotels mini bar and cost me about £7....

Breakfast was a bit of a let
down. Every morning varied as one morning there was fish then next morning there wasn't. Then next morning no bread rolls . And one morning had no scrambled egg . Not much of a selection . And the coffee was Luke warm every morning.

At £110 per night I was a bit
disappointed with the best western hotel chain. Have stayed in lots of them all over Europe but this one was a bit of a let down.

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times while on business in Norway. As long as they don't have any parties going on in the bar it's a fantastic hotel.
