I guess there is not much choice around if you don't want to pay 260 euros a night at the Ranga hotel in Hella!
But by looking at their very professional website and the fact that it is a three star hotel, I was expecting a lot better than this.
At first the receptionist hardly gave any information about the hotel: breakfast time, dinner, bar, wifi?
My room was OK. It looks like I was lucky having a room in the new building. Strangely enough there was no cold water in my bathroom! Well it's always better than no hot water you would say...
But all this would have been OK I guess since it is really in the middle of nowhere.... But for the dinner!
So just don't have dinner here.
Fixed menu with no choice for starter, main course and desert. So if there is anything you don't like, tough luck!
And even if you like it...
Industrial mushroom soup, boiled chicken breast and veggies followed by a tiny creme brulee and all this for 50 euros without drinks of course.
So hotel OK-ish taking into account where it is but restaurant is clearly not.
