Stavanger, Norway

The hotel is located in the middle of the city centre. It serves a good breakfast with quality coffee (good selection). The standard of the rooms was probably good in 1980s, not in 2017. Old, low quality TV in the room. Try opening the minibar on your own risk. Staff is polite, but does not take any issues you might...

The hotel is located just 10 steps from the garden to mount Askla viewpoint, and also very close to the pier, nice restaurants. Breakfast buffet was amazing with egg station managed by 2 cooks. Clean and tidy room, perfect stay

I've never given 5 for a hotel stay, there are always a few quirks and things you'd hope to be better, however after 7-weeks holidaying through Europe we found this hotel the most comfortable and well located of our travels to date. We arrived by Hurtigruten ferry at half past midnight, the hotel is only. 5-minute easy walk from the...

First of all, there are two of us and we had definitely booked for 2 pax via booking.com. There was no reason for us to book for 1 pax and appeared at the hotel reception with 2 of us. However to our dismay, the booking captured with the hotel via booking.com is for 1 person and was for a twin...

Dear "Sugarplum27", Thank you very much for writing a review of our hotel. I can see that this situation was poorly handled by us and apologize for this. We could have solved this issue then and there. This is the fault of the hotel and not booking.com. Please contact me at the following email address: sven.erik@parkenhotel.no and I will make...

The big test for a hotel is to host a national congress where we are inside the hotel constantly from friday to sunday. The breakfast was a average buffet, the same with lunch. You get cold stuff (nice) and som hot dishes (less nice). Personally I missed choises in vegetables for lunch. For the feast supper we were served deer....

We stayed at the Scandic Parken for 3 nights in March. Our room was on the 8th floor and looked out over the harbour. The room was very clean and spacious with a kettle, dressing gowns, TV and toiletries. Everything we needed. The hotel is situated in the centre of town minutes from the 501 steps up to the scenic...

In the town center. Walking distance to the best restaurats in town and the sea. Professional personell and confortable business rooms. Cute warm floir in the bathroom.

The Scandic Parken is well situated just a couple of hundred metres from the waterfront and just off the 'high street'. The airport bus stops not far away, too. The room was comfortable with fantastic floor to ceiling windows with a great view over the town. No meals were available in the evenings but there are lots of good restaurants...

Ask for a room at a higher level. Wonderful views of the town of Alesund from all the rooms facing that direction. Great service, best breakfast in these parts of Norway and nicely refurbished rooms. Minbar in rooms and very good beds.
