“Excellent for Cyclists”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

We are long-distance cycle tourists and this hotel (now called Norblad) is great for backpackers and cyclists. There is a kitchen, a locked room in which you can store your bikes, a laundry on site, good clean shower, a fairly spacious bedroom and the price is good.

Don't be put off by the fact that you have to carry your bike up just 1 flight of stairs; the locked upboard is right there on the landing, and I don't think you could do better than this hotel when travelling on a budget.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2009

When we got to the address of the Astoria Hideaway Hotel we found a hotel named The Norblad. They had our reservations, so perhaps there has been a name change along the way(?). This place definitely has a hostel feel to it. It's a place you can find a tattooed and pierced young man talking to guy visiting from Europe. Many rooms you have to share a bedroom and a bathroom, but there are four rooms that have a private bath and two that share a bath. We stayed in the York room, which had a private bath, refrigerator, sofa, air purifier, and TV. I didn't see any AC, but when we were there, opening a window was all we needed. There were no screens, but the blinds kept out any bugs.

The hotel had a community feel to it and we found it was quieter than expected, the sheets and towels were clean, and the bed was soft.

This is a good place for young people on a budget or passer-bys. The city is a charming one and this hostel is right in the heart of it. Got a bit of a weird vibe from the people there, but got a private room and it was clean and has a view of the river. I wouldn't want to take my family there or stay for an extended period of time, but its cheap and clean and in a good location. They have dorm rooms, and private rooms. The private room was simple it had a fridge and a sink, but the bathrooms were shared.
