Location very close to the bus- and the trainstation. One night in a small room is ok. The breakfast was good, but cheese like brie and other toppings was not supplemented the last half hour of the breakfast. Bacon was very good and so was the scrambled eggs.

Location of the hotel is great, very close to the train/bus station. Less than a 5 minute walk. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself is OK, the rooms are clean and on the small side. The beds are very narrow, if you toss and turn a lot in your sleep you might find yourself on the floor in... More

The hotel is very central, the rooms are ok the dinner we got served tasted good, but felt very cafeteria like(props to the chef though because you could tell he's really trying to make bad/cheap quality food look and taste better). The staff was lovely and made us all feel welcome even with all the guide dogs that came along... More

A nice well placed hotel with pleasant and friendly reception stuff. The rooms are very small and you feel like in cage. The bathrooms with the shower cabinet are so small that there is only one way to get in and out. Close to rail road station and the center. For business trip or an overnight stay accept

I've stayed here twice now, mainly because I haven't time to look for something else. It's Norway, if you're from the UK it's going to be expensive. 150 NOK for overnight parking is excessive. Room was basic but everything you need. Very clean. No aircon. Breakfast was nice. Good central location.

Nice and friendly reception. Rooms are very small and dated. Bathrooms need some change. Not much to do around. Very quite. 40 minutes from Oslo city. Bar menu is good. Rooms are a bit complicated to find as it has got letters and numbers on the key cards. Key cards are old style aswell.

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a conference at work. The conference facilities was nice, but this review is about the room and hotel food. The hotel has seen its better days and is in dire need of refurbishment. My room was small and cramped. The bathroom too was small and cramped. Breakfast and lunch was good... More

The main advantage with this hotel is its adjacent location to the railway station and also thus walking distance to the city centre at Bragenes. I wouldn't expect too much but it's a fairly decent hotel - the bed was soft and comfy and the breakfast was plentiful and filling (continental buffet style). The main advantage is also a drawback...
