Bryggen has very nice service and the benefits of sweets after lunch and evening food 18-21, even possible to get food middle in the night if late arrival. Parking is also easy, not many free but not to expensive 50m away.

Stayed here for a night during a business trip, and would say this is a pretty average hotel. The supper buffet is a nice addition, and the breakfast is perfectly ok. The rooms, while pretty spacious, are lacking a few things, like a power socket near the bed. The room I stayed in also felt pretty old, with carpet on... More

Good location, friendly staff and good service. Rooms are nice and clean. One of the best thing about the hotel is that they serve supper buffet from 6 p.m to 9 p.m. Some of the people working there seem to enjoy their job. This creates a welcoming and friendly athmosphere. The hotel seems to be scarce on parking lot. If... More

This hotel was an excellent value. The rooms were very nice, but the best part was the free buffet breakfast and the light buffet dinner. The food was excellent and we all looked forward to the good food with out having to look for a restaurant after a long day of sites seeing.

We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times. The first time we were a little disappointed with slow and inadequate service from the receptionists. However, the second visit we experienced fast and professional service throughout. I would highly recommend a room with view of the waterfront.

Nice location. Car park most of the time fully booked so that I had to park my car on official carpark and pay 120 NOK every nigth. The rooms haven't been made every day. Diner was available until 9pm but most of the offer have been finished at 8 and haven't been filled up again. This happens not only one... More

We only stayed for one night. Extremely good service. The woman in the reception did everything to help us out. The rooms are ok, not the most modern but clean and nice. The location is great and it's a children friendly hotel (we traveled with a baby).

I am not sure how the hotel standard is in Skien, but this was average compared to hotels in other Norwegian cities. Everything, including breakfast was ok. Room looked a bit dated. Lacked both minibar (or at least anything in it...) and in-room safe. As a Clarion Collection the hotel has a few great features such as free evening meal,... More

Nice room (good TV, WiFi, size, etc) and check-in/out was fast. Very good with free waffles and evening meal included. Breakfast was a bit less than what we expected (compared to other Choice-hotels we have stayed at lately. Good and relaxing atmosphere both in hotel and the small town of Skien. Well worth a day or two stopover.
