Aurland Fjordhotel
Reviewed March 15, 2014

This hotel is ideally situated in the centre of Aurland-100m from the bus stop. We received a very warm welcome. The manager was very kind and helpful. The hotel however is very dated. Our room was very dark with strange coloured decor. It reminded us of something out of The Shining. The walls were very thin and you could hear every noise made through the night. Not good when you need a good nights sleep. We are frequent travellers and usually stay in low budget accommodation so we don't expect much-just a good place to sleep which we didn't get. We were also promised an early breakfast since we had to leave very early to catch the bus to Bergen which we thought was very kind. However the Cook arrived 30 minutes late so we had no choice but to leave with not eating anything which was a shame as the meal we had the previous night was very good. Lovely friendly staff. Just a shame the hotel isn't up to scratch.

A little dated but clean and comfortable. If you get a room looking out to the fjord it really is lovely. Average restaurant fair. Parking lot can get full pretty quickly too. However, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: You must choose a room with the view of the fjord.

It's older hotel. Rooms are fine, bigger than usual, comfortable,nice somewhat old building.
Restaurant is excellent, staff ver helpful. Suggest email them to be sure "lift" is working if you need it.

Room Tip: Ask for view over the Fjord.

Better than Average, but not quite Very Good. We had a room with a small balcony and a great view of the fjord, that made up for the bed not being too comfortable - little support, too soft -maybe needs new mattresses. Other than that, room was fine. Shower only in the bathroom (which was fine with us). Wifi only in lobby area, no reception in room. Had a delicious dinner; breakfast buffet, while not a big spread, was good, esp. the eggs, no sneeze guard though which bothered husband. This was a nice place to stay instead of in Flam - more of a real town feel. Would stay again.

While in Aurland, visit the Aurland Shoe Factory if you have time. The owner gave us a tour and a lot of history of "Aurland Shoes". Of course I had to buy a pair.

My family and i stayed two nights here in late september 2013. We were warmly welcomed by Steinar Kjerstein. We had initially planned to stay a night and proceed the next morning to the glaciers (a 5 hour drive, with 5 bus changes). Steinar made many phone calls and spent almost an hour gathering accurate information that told us that to continue with our planned journey would be ill advised (it was the end of tourist season, and buses did not run as frequently as they would normally do during peak season, and thus we may not make it back in time for our flight back home). S

Steinar was very accomodating and gave us a choice of two rooms, allowing us to go up and have a look at the rooms first hand before deciding. We chose room 301, which is a lovely room (it was just nice for the 3 of us) with a nice view of Fiord.

The shower and bath facilities were excellent. The shower was excellent, stable temperature. Comfortable beds, and nice heating.

Breakfast was very good. Not the biggest spread you will find, but this is not a large impersonal hotel chain. This is a smallish hotel, warm and friendly, and the breakfast offering was, in my opinion, good. Fresh food, cold cuts, warm eggs, cereal, bread, coffee, tea. Yogurt, some fruit. Excellent bacon and sausages.

No lunch. Dinner was again excellent. Was it expensive? Not if you compare prices in most restaurants in Norway. (but expensive if you compare with the rest of the world. Bear in mind that Norway is one of the most expensive places on the planet). Was it good? It was very good. The cod and salmon were excellent, try to ask the waiter to give you sauce on the side... i found the fish excellent without the sauce, with just lemon, but that's just me. My wife prefers the fish with the sauce it came with.

Very friendly staff. Very helpful with providing information to ill informed travellers such as we. There's a TV room, with pool table and darts as well as nice chairs to sit and read in the evenings once the sun goes down.

If ever we come back to Aurland, this would be the place we would stay again, no hesitation at all. Thank you Steinar and your staff, for helping us make better choices on our vacation, and for such excellent service.

We're glad we picked Aurland to stay for two nights and enjoy hiking in the fjords. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean -- we had a fjord view on the third floor. Beautiful! The Gudvangen-Flam ferry dropped us off at the Aurland wharf, and there's a regular bus to Flam. Hotel restaurant dinner was fine, though limited menu. Breakfast buffet was good.

Room Tip: Ask for a fjord view!
