We booked here for the location. Anyone looking to stay here needs to know that they will be staying in very outdated surroundings. It has to be the worst we have stayed in. The furniture is well worn with the sofa collapsed in our room. Don’t expect a decent stay if you book here.
That said, the staff are great and work well given what they have to work with. Breakfast staff are particularly lovely and make sure there’s a good choice on offer.
There’s a fairly decent coffee available in the lobby at any time and artworks are around the hotel.
It was hot and rooms are not air conditioned. We opened the window and were greeted with the noise of bin vans one morning and drunken singing another night. It’s not a good place to get catch up on sleep.
We wouldn’t stay again.

Hi SPEL1990.

Thank you for giving us this feedback - we need that to be able to improve.
Glad to hear that you were happy with the service provided by our staff.

I also hope that we will see you again sometime, maybe after a future renovation. :)

The sphere is like 1994 when the Olympics where in town. This is quite normal, but they start renovations during the last years.

The breakfast was good and the atmosphere was good. The coice is more than enough.

Conclusion: a good place to stay in Lillehammer.

The hotel is split into two parts - the one you see in their photos, and the tired, concrete block, with no air conditioning, that many of the rooms are in.

Parking is free, so that scores a point, as does the location. That’s it, I am afraid.

The one member of staff working in the entire hotel was nice enough, but he couldn’t man the front desk, and clear the dirty cups and bottles from the lounge. Yes, it is one of those places where they maximise profit, by having literally done one person to do everything, from 4pm onwards.

Room was averagely clean; bathroom had had a once over, but didn’t sparkle. The lamp shades were stained and the skirting boards and door surrounds were chipped. Shower curtain was fitted so that one has about 60cm of space, in which to shower, whilst getting wrapped in he curtain.

The room faced the railway station, and was blisteringly hot. Opening the door to the 80sq cm balcony just let in the noise of trains and taxis. Don’t come here on a sunny day.

If you must stay here, make sure you get a room in the new part of the hotel, and don’t pay more than 900NOK - it simply isn’t worth more than that.

Disappointing.

Hi DSBananer.

Thank you for taking the time to review us on Tripadvisor!
I am sorry, though, that the stay did not live up to your expectations.

I sincerely hope that we can give you a better impression another time.

The hotel is right in the center of town and easy walking throughout the downtown area.The hotel is old, but management has worked hard to keep it up. There are several beautiful oil paintings on the walls of the hotel. The staff was exceptionally nice and helpful. The breakfast was good by everyday standards, but lacking behind most other hotels we stayed at in Norway. They lacked variety, choices of warm food and there was no goat's cheese. The hotel is reasonably priced and a good value for the money. I would stay here again in the future. Just work on improving the breakfast.
