We stayed here two nights in June 2012. It is a classic hotel on a mountain overlooking the Geirangerfjord. Founded in 1892, emperor Wilhelm II stayed here several times, undoubtedly because he enjoyed the views. Utsikten is the Norwegian word for The View. Our room was at rear side of the hotel (no view) and was very tiny indeed. The bed was placed against the wall, so you could not step into it from both sides. The bed was extremely comfortable. Bathroom was small too, but clean and functional. No TV in the room and no elevator to the upper floors. The receptionist did get tired telling the guests that there were no elevators back in 1892 - which is not true by the way.
Breakfast was great, good selection of cold and hot items and the view....
Friendly staff. The hotel is open from May through September.
