Not renovated room, friendly and helpful staff
This is a not renovated part of an old hotel. Check-in is via Radisson Blu and you can reach the hotel via Radisson Blu hotel as well. Rooms are old, not upgraded for many years. It was not perfectly clean either. However, staff is (actually staff if Radisson Blu) really helpful and they did their best to make us comfortable. If you are only looki g for a place to stay for one night, it is a ok place.

2/10 Poor

Horrible hotel
Extremely dark room with almost no lights. No power outlets. Bad beds. Rediculously crappy room for over 3000 nok a night, not even including breakfast. I can see why this was the only available hotel in town. Proper rip off, we will never be back. If this is your only option, it is better to cancel the trip or sleep in your car.

4/10 Fair

Worn out hotel
The hotel is worn out and overpriced. The light in the room only partially functioned and the room had a distinct smell of a previous occupant smoking. Very friendly staff who explained that the smoke detector in the room was disabled (with a plastic bag covering it) in order to prevent false alarms.

Black fungus, dirty wall to wall carpeting
Dirty run down hotel, black fungus in the bathroom, wall to wall carpet from 1980, dusty and dirty. Breakfast was hit and miss, "if they happened to have space" so we never got any, which was probably a good thing. Not worth it.
