Good clean hotel with helpful friendly staff. Coffee making facilities in the room and a simple but good breakfast Buffett. It's very close to the city centre with good selection of restaraunts and sights. Check out the local delicacy called Lackerlii at the Lackerlii Huus.

For breakfast you can get the best cappucino! The bread is fresh and crunchy. It is good with a wide variety of cheese. Friendly service. Also the rooms are good and everything works. There are good restaurants nearby.
