Ro Hotel
Ranked #8 of 13 Hotels in Geilo
Reviewed 16 January 2014

This is a very modest hotel. The location is good as it is close to the ski slopes at Geilo ski resort and in the middle of the village centre. The room rates are low at Norwegian standards in general and the amongst the lowest at Geilo. A good hotel charges 2-3 times more. Breakfast is ok and the cafe serves average food with its usual insane Norwegian eat out prices.
You get what you pay for, but this is absolutely a rcommendable budget lodging.

Room Tip: Choose one not facing the "main" street.

Enjoyed our stay at Ro Hotel. Only downside was that the last guest in our room had "forgotten" something personal in the toilet. The cleaning staff had obviously not detected it. This is unacceptable!!!! Besides this I will not hesitate to recommend this hotel if you want a cheap place to stay in Geilo. Breakfast was good.

We stayed here for 4 nights after retreating from bad weather in the mountains. We were made very welcome and had a lovely room with a view across to the ski slopes. The room had a proper seating area, it was warm and we could control the temperature easily. There was a free computer downstairs for internet access.

We didn't eat in the cafe but breakfast was fine. Only comment is that there is no lift and all rooms are at least two floors up - no problem for us with rucsacs but to bear in mind if you have heavy cases.

As the owner said, Norway isn't expensive, it's very expensive. By Norwegian standards it was very good value.

This was our fourth stay at the Ro Hotel, always a friendly welcome. Warm and clean , good hot showers, view of ski slopes across the glen. Good filling three course meals with coffee or tea served in the Ro Kro downstairs, candle lit beside fire. Winter pension a good deal for Norway, incuding packed lunch made from breakfast buffet.
Very handy for train - at end of platform but trains do not disturb sleep too much.
Ten minute walk to chair lift or ski bus stop. highly recommende for Geilo! Will be back again.

Room Tip: Ensuite rooms with view at front of hotel.

A "Spartan" facility, which is fine for active people hill walking or skiing. There is no pretence of luxury. The hotel is very expensive though modest in comparison to others in Geilo, which is a premium priced resort Summer or Winter. Hence the 4 star rating.

Right beside railway station and saved an expensive taxi fare to other hotels. Train noise was minimal and did not disturb sleep. Shower was good- hot and good pressure. Good base to start from for hikes in the area. Across the road from a fine restaurant. The host was cordial but not over expansive in his advice on the area

Room Tip: Cheaper rooms overlook the railway, do not have en suite showers and have no outlook. Rooms to the f...
