Fanitullen Hotel
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Fanitullen is an average hotel/apartment in an ok location, but the service is terrible! My first experience with Fanitullen was upon phoning in advance to confirm our arrival, as they ask you to do on their (very unprofessional website). After a short conversation the receptionist told me had an important call to take, told me to call again and proceeded to hang up. My second experience was upon arrival. The room was satisfactory, but no more. Surprising considering the price of the stay. The kitchen was clean, but lacking in amenities. No salt, pepper or sugar was available and furthermore no cloths for cleaning the kitchen or kitchen area. On our last day we asked if cleaning supplies would be available, and were assured that they would. When asking for supplies when cleaning we were handed a single towel to clean with!!! As if this was not enough the receptionist then proceeded to complain that the room was not clean enough!!! All in all an ok stay, not improved at all by the hotel, it's personnel or the service we received. I can not recommend fanitullen.

Just back from my skiing trip to Hemsedal. I stayed at Hotel Fanitullen. There is a disco down stairs. So don't believe what they write in the home page of skistar I quote
"Minimum alder for booking er 20 år for bestiller og en person til.Ungdommelig miljø i helger, påske og nyttår. Det kan være noe støy fra afterski/nattklubb og uteliv i disse periodene, men Fanitullen Apartment passer utmerket for familier i midtukene (søndag til fredag)."
In enghlish. "There can be some noice during this perioda" This is the biggest understatment I heard for a long time. Our room vibrated from 11 pm to 230 am.My advise don't stay there!!!!!
The base speaker must have been directed right at our room.
Skiing was as everer brlliant in Hemsedal. I will be back but , but staying in a diffrent place in the hemsedal centrum./ Steen late middelage

Room Tip: Party to 3 in the morning and you will be OK

We were looking for a place to stay during our trip to Oslo and the Fjords, not too expensive, in the countryside and somewhat en-route to Flam & Naeroyford. The best place which satisfied these was Fanitullen and how it did. About 220 Kms out of Oslo in the direction we wanted to go, it was a perfect stopover and literally an apartment in our hands. Absolutely clean and spacious with our very own kitchen. And what a view too (see attached snaps)
The only other feedback on tripadvisor concerned us about the noise, but thankfully, our one night stay had nothing of the sort - slept like logs with no pub blaring out their music!
Highly recommended...

Do not stay here unless you intend to be up all night. The hotel is in the same building as a bar/nightclub which is both on the floor below and the same floor as the rooms. If you don't like the music they play, by the way, the bar opposite competes. I don't know if it would help if the drumbeats were synchronised.

The rooms are ok, but it is really an apartment hotel. Don't expect hotel standards. The owner actually seems an ok guy, the receptionist is also nice.

Next time I would stay up near the ski centre. Hemsedal village only has a choice of two ski buses in the morning and two back in the afternoon. And it might be quieter, though Hemsedal does Market itself as a party place, I think. Trouble is, I'm getting bit old! As I write this the floor is vibrating.
