Personnel was very positive and helpful, tasty breakfast, good bus connection from the centre. Bus to the airport stops right near the Hotel. Nice view on the helicopter parking place. Has a shop inside the hotel.

Stayed here by coincidence during ONS due to lack of alternatives, but was very happy by the choice. Primarily this is a hotel for visitors or relatives of patients of the hospital. Because of that the breakfast restaurant was full of newly born babies with their parents and grandparents, and personally I found that as a great contrast to the... More

The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is big. The breakfast is hearty and tasty. The city centre is 30 minute away, you can go with bus for 5 minute. We tried dinner but didn't like it.

Nice and clean. It takes approximately 5 minutes with bus and 20 minutes walking to the city center. Friendly staff, though we first didn't get a double bed room that we paid for. They did find us another room though. We stayed for 2 nights and found it to be a convenient place to stay. A little weird when you... More

The hotel was nice and cosy. It is close to an hospital so during breakfast you are mixed with new mamas and mental disability people but there is nothing wrong with this. Breakfast is quite good. Rooms were clean while a bit small. Shower was Italian and very nice! Yet, a bad point is the parking which was like 200... More

The hotel is located in the hospital, which gives guests access to the hospital's facilities (shop, cafeteria where a delicious breakfast is served for 95 NOK). Simple but confortable room. The only minus is the distance from the city center, but several buses stop in front of the hotel and a city bike rental station is also on the parking... More

I stayed here for two nights during my visit to Stavanger.
