            4.6

            It was not good. No rm service, no clocks in rooms, no wiFi & no open resturant to eat at. The rooms were too small and there was nowhere but the "catwalk" for a lady to do her hair or makeup!

            We were not pleased at all & will not return!

            Location

            The type and size of room booked online was not the one offered for sure # 203, no mirror in bathroom on top of the sink ???? & when asked @ the reception about it , I was informed that it is a design error !!!!! Size & quality of room is of a moderate 3 star Hotel & never to be rated as 5 stars.

            comfortable bed, nice restaurant and ok breakfast

            small rooms, dirty floors, dirty walls and the whole room felt worn even though hotel is only 6 years old.

            5.4

            Nice and helpful staff - good bed at room

            Seems to be a pimped up old Hotel - rooms are too mall and dark

            central location, very helpful staff

            room was freezing cold with a temperature of 18 celsius, although external source of heating (electric blower) was provided...

          • Single
            5.4

            The location is good, but I do not like the room design, it is quite cold inside, and the window can not keep the cold and noise out, the breakfast is few choice, it is not worth the price pay

          • Couple
            5.4

            The balcony of the room was well situated,the room was lovely.Inclusive breakfast had a good selection of food with great coffee.

            The room was not ready on my early arrival,as had been previously arranged. The room in general was unclean and the bedding was too soft.

            Gabriel, your service is perfect!!

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Stylish, hip hotel. Very comfortable mattress on bed. Helpful and accommodating bar staff.

            The airconditioning was set at 24°C and could not be changed despite the warm weather. The AC dial could be lowered to 18°C but it reset itself to 24°C a few minutes later. The bedding was a doona and despite the fabulous bed I hardly slept due to the overheating. The concept lighting is so stylish that it is not possible to use the bathroom at night without lighting the room. The very hip shower flooded the bathroom.

          • Older travelers
            9.2

            Design hotel, uncategorized, out of the common standards !

            Design is sometimes opposite to functional. The lightning system is the room was surely conceived by a superior engineer...but if you want to stand up at night without disturbing your partner, it's becoming a real challenge ! Otherwise, the lack of view on the outside (the window was giving on an interior courtyard).

          • Family with children
            5.8

            Great location and wonderful roof top lounge.

            not too clean, overall renovation would be needed. Breakfast buffet poor and service not particularly good.

          • Older travelers
            6.6

            Comfortable beds, great bath

            Breakfast not as good as other first hotels; room dirty for such an expensive suite; claimed there was a jaccuzi/spa but there was not; no tea making facilities in room

          • Family with children
            9.2

            The room was very nice, loved the lighting system, clean, the bed was very comfortable with immaculate white sheets. The location was good,quiet but still close to major activities and to the harbor. Another very positive point was the breakfast buffet, really rich and neat, best scones ever tasted.

            The only thing that I didn't like were the 3 paintings hanging in the lobby they don't fit to the general atmosphere.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            A perfect "boutique hotel", beautiful, 21st century designed interiors. Like almost everywhere in Norway, spotlessly clean. Very good breakfast buffet. Convenient location.

            Boutique hotels, usually near the centre of town, are always on the small side, making best use of scarce available spaces, but rooms in this hotel are smaller than usual. A deluxe double room here is really perfect for one person. Presumably this hotel has been designed with business travellers with an overnight bag in mind rather than tourists with suitcases! Also, the bathrooms could do with better lighting systems.
