I loved this hotel. It's nestled in the beautiful Norwegian fjords. It's idyllic and perfect. It is the quaint little tourist town of Flam. Although it was cold at night, it was worth the short walk to the centrally located pub that resembles a stave church (it is a brewery as well)... There are gift shops and large boats within...

A quite large tourist hotel with a surprisingly cozy and intimate lobby/restaurant area, despite it covering four stories. The interior has a rather kitschy approach to Norwegian folklore, still I liked it. My room was large and with a bathtub and good bed. Friendly staff. The weakest point is the food, which was variable. Good breakfast though.

30+ people stayed for the weekend, and the hotel was very helpful providing facilities for the band's training. Very good indeed! The rooms are nice and clean, good view the the centre of the village. The bathrooms are also very clean and modern. The hotel is a mix of old and new, and has some rooms with old-style decor and...

The Fretheim Hotel is easily the favorite of our Norway and Sweden trip. The tiny village of Flam is a beautiful place right out of the fairy tales. The thought of attempting to describe the place is daunting. The desk staff made us feel like family and 'adopted' our young teen grandson who spoke Swedish with and hung out with... More

Location was great in Flam, except parking is behind the hotel and there is no drive way to pull up front to drop off the luggage. You have to drag the bags down the block, which be a hassle when it's raining and road is wet and muddy. Staff at check-in was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and answered all the questions...

An excellent hotel with friendly staff and a great breakfast. Had a balcony room overlooking the fjord and would recommend this is the best category for anyone considering staying here. All attractions of Flam are in easy walking distance (a stroll really). The train ride down to Flam was spectacular and the fjord cruise was out of this world...booked the... More

Lovely hotel in Flam. The room is clean and we got the view of the mountain from our window. The staff are nice and accommodating. The breakfast is not as great compared to the other hotels we checked in. The only fruit that they have is a fruit salad which did not taste fresh at all. It tasted as if... More

This hotel is comfortable and convenient to the town. It has a great breakfast included. Free wifi. Easy parking and access to the Flam railroad or other attractions. Nice walking paths behind the hotel up the hill side. The staff is friendly and helpful

Room 129 is comfortable. Soft Pillows and mattress. Beautiful view of the Fjords and water. Outside patio for sitting. Very peaceful setting. Small shopping area and water very close.

Most visitors will go to Flam after a ride on the mountain railway or a cruise on the fiords. Both of which are truly spectular and not to be mised on a visit to Norway. The Fretheim Hotel is probably the nicest place to stay in Flam due to its position, and many rooms have a great view . Our... More
