What a magical place, so much history here, from the English nobility settlements, via the polar explorers and WWII bombings (now the dance hall), all the way to the Star Wars connection. We spent two days and one night here and would go back immediately. Take some time to go for a walk on the frozen lake to the glacier....

Finse is a remote stop on the Bergen to Oslo raliway line. It is basically a station, a hotel and a Youth Hostel. We had lunch at the hotel and couldn't have been made more welcome. The soup was Norwegian in character (or so we were told) and was delicious and served with fresh bread. The views from the hotel...

Have just spent 2 nights at Hotel 1222, Finse whilst taking the train ride from Bergen to Oslo. We had high hopes for this stay but even they were surpassed;this hotel is truly exceptional. Every member of staff was friendly and it was lovely to be encouraged to 'have a go' at all their winter activities. We will never forget...

Read about Finse in an article. We decided to experience Bergen/Finse/Oslo train journey. Train very easy to book from UK also very good value Bergen to Finse was amazing. Got off at Finse and walked 50yards to hotel warm and friendly greeting. Dumped our bags and went for a walk through the snow. Huskies outside hotel enhanced the whole experience....

This is a unique place to stay on your way to or from Oslo. Beautiful views of the lake mountains and glacier. Great for walks and bike trails , or simply just sit and look at the views. The staff are friendly and helpful. Food fresh with " free" bonus lunch supplied.

I stayed in Finse for 1 night, whilst travelling from Oslo to Bergen, as I wanted to cycle some of the Rallarvegen, as well as explore the surrounding area. The hotel is very quaint, and is situated right on the lake shore. The room rate includes a great 3 course dinner, breakfast and also a packed lunch, which you make...

Finse 1222 was the complete package. From the minute we got off the train everything was taken care of. The lobby was 100 meters from the station and after checking in and going for a short hike to enjoy the picturesque scenery, we had a delicious dinner. It should be noted that it is a fixed menu (no choices) but...

Finse is one of a few stops in the Bergen Railway. Great natural attractions part of a journey called Norway in a Nutshell. From Oslo to Bergen take the left side seats of the train to enjoy better views. A slice of heaven on Earth.

Overall I liked our stay at Finse. Staff overall very friendly and helpful. They seemed to enjoy working there. Rooms in the basement were basic but fine. Good view from them. Bathroom was fine with heated floor. Dinner was amazing and the best dinner we had in Norway. Breakfast was good as well with freshly baked bread. I would like...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finse 1222 was built in 1909 as part of the Bergen Railway and has since been the gateway to some of Norway's most beautiful and accessible mountain areas. The Hallingskarvet National Park borders to Finse and across the lake Finsevann the mighty Hardangerjokulen glacier rises. Finse 1222 is a family owned hotel run by young and serviceminded people. Allthough the premises are old and some places worn by more than 100 years of service, focus is on providing a hospitable and keen service as well as very good food. The hotel offers bike rental and ski rental. Rooms are basic - we recommend the outdoors! ... more   less
