“Al the basics covered”
Reviewed 21 September 2011

I’ve read a lot of bad reviews about this hotel. I guess one needs to keep in perspective where the hotel is located. The town of Al is very small and quaint town. The hotel reflects this. I can’t say for sure, but I don’t think that there is a better hotel in Al. I read one review where the person complained about that the bar and the reception had the same person in charge – what they left out is that the reception and bar are connected and it takes the person about 2 seconds to go back and forth. Or, if you wanted to, it would take you 5 seconds to walk to the bar. Not a big deal in my opinion. Please see my picture of the reception - you can see the door with the diamond on it that goes to the bar.

The hotel is needs to upgrade the carpet, lights, and paint its walls. However, all the basics were covered for a good stay: clean room, friendly service, free WI-FI, and a good breakfast. There was also a PC in the lobby that provided free Internet.

We had supper in the restaurant one night, while the food was great it was very expensive.

I have posted pictures of our room - 321.

Nothing special about anything here but the worst was the food. We bought meals included and at the other 6 hotels we stayed at In Norwayincluding 2 other Thon hotels, the food was great. Here the dinner was disgusting. Chicken, rice, tortillas, with a sauce plus Canned pudding And jello.

The Reception and the Bar had the same person in charge, that means on several occations the reception was empty, it was very seldom you could just go to the reception and talk to them, you always had to call the bell and wait. One other thing to remember is that i ordered a superior room to about $200 a night, my friend ordered a 3-4 person room, which they only paid 50 or 100$ for all 3!!! They had alot of rooms on top of the hotel with one double bed, and two beds in top of each other, theese rooms were huge, to an incrediable price compared to my room, resulting that i actually paid almost twice as much as my 3 friends.. for a smaller room... Also no minibar on the room.
