First Hotel Breiseth

First Hotel Breiseth, established in 1898, is one of the oldest hotels in Lillehammer. At the time of its opening, it was considered the most fashionable hotel in town. During its first 40 years of operation the hotel was very popular among a group of artist. Cash was not always forthcoming, and as a result the hotel received a number of paintings still decorating its walls. As a guest at our hotel you will be within walking distance of attractions like Maihaugen, Lillehammer art museum, the pedestrian precinct Gagata, several restaurants and a range of activities. Ski bus to Hafjell departs close to the hotel.

We booked here for the location. Anyone looking to stay here needs to know that they will be staying in very outdated surroundings. It has to be the worst we have stayed in. The furniture is well worn with the sofa collapsed in our room....More

The hotel is split into two parts - the one you see in their photos, and the tired, concrete block, with no air conditioning, that many of the rooms are in. Parking is free, so that scores a point, as does the location. That’s it,...More
