My visit was prior to the "minimum" date that allows TripAdvisor. At that time I was not registered in the application yet, but since the experience was so bad and I have remembered it now when planning a new trip, I have decided to write an opinion because of the disastrous experience. The most important thing: The lousy service. From...

Hotel close to railway station and city center. Staff was good service and friendly. Gym and sauna good. Breakfast very good. Room was cold. Wifi was not stable and no password. TV picture was bad quality.

Staff were friendly and welcoming. Room was nothing short of awful. Worn out and damaged surfaces, cheap furniture, stained bed linen. In desperate need of renovation, hasn't been touched for 30 years. Maybe other rooms are nicer. Cost 1450kr for one night single occupancy. No tea or coffee in the room. I can comment on the breakfast as I checked...

When we first arrived we got a rather small room with only one chair. The day after we asked to change the room, and we were upgraded to a suite with a sauna in it to the same prize. Never had a hotel room with a sauna in it before, and we have travelled a lot. Fantastic!

Old decoration, rooms and corridors were old. Not a 4-star hotel. 2-3 star at most. Near the casino. Good parking space. Breakfast was ok. Bad coffee machine. Bathroom in hotell was really old. Gym was old but ok.

We received a bad welcoming, and after hours of travel that's not what you want. The receptionist answered with just yes or no and we had to drag answers out of her, like were is the gym, do we need a key etc... Also we had problems with the garage and she was very reluctant in helping us. Nice rooms...
