We were lucky enough to get a nice balcony view of the cliffs and Fjord. One of the best views I've ever seen in my life. The staff was friendly and the hotel is right next to the Flam Train and Ferry

We were able to check in early which was fab given a sleepless night the night before. The service is great. Easy walking distance to Flam railway. Beds are comfy. Breakfast was really good. It's quiet and peaceful and I'd recommend Fretheim Hotel.

Just wanted to suggest that you not miss the switch back trails behind the hotel. It is an easy hike and at each switchback there is a piece of art nestled by the trail. It is like a scavenger hunt for art. In May it was light enough to walk after 9:00 at night and have no problem navigating the...

The Fretheim Hotel overlooks the small town and fjord, and is backed by a hiking trail and beautiful mountains in the back of the hotel. We took an 8 hour train ride to get...

This hotel is set in the most beautiful place. The fjord and the mountains are majestic and almost defy description. We stayed in an American-style room and it was clean and comfortable. We stayed on the front side of the hotel with a view of the town, the fjords, and the mountains. The restaurant was very good for dinner and...

We stayed here for one night to go on the Flam railway. Even though check in was not until 4pm, they let us into our room at 12pm which was very helpful. The room was on the ground floor, nice and clean with a door out onto the lawn in front of the hotel. The beds were very soft and...

During our stay (late evening), my daughter had quite high fever. Hotel staff kindly helped us in providing proper medicine, medical advice, fruit juice, and call ambulance on behalf of us quickly. And also they shared this situation with all staff accordingly and staff in restaurant knew the situation in the morning and provided flexible breakfast. We'd like to say...
