“Overall - ok / good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2013

Rooms are always very clean. The beds can be a little firm.

underfloor heating in the bathroom is nice, The shower is pretty spacious. Toiletries provided are OK.

The evening buffet is included in the price. The food is always well prepared / presented. The few times i have stayed i have noticed that it can be a bit "same-y"

Breakfast is good. Again, a good selection of food, hot & cold.

Trying to get a coffee when the restaurant is not open is difficult. A couple of times I've given up trying

Room Tip: Rooms facing the railway line can be noisy

Dear Guests,
we really appreciate you taking the time to write us a review. Although your rating of us is medium, when I read this review, I found that the words are more positive. I'm so sorry we didn't provide you with the information that the coffee is always available and free in the dining room. If there's no one there, just ask the staff in the front desk, they will help you. Next time you're visiting us, be sure to let us know what we can do to make your stay even better.

Best regards

Stayed here for a week for business. The hotel is clean and situated in a nice city in Norway. It is close to the city centre and easily accessible. The hotel itself is modern. Boasts excellent facilities and has free wifi throughout.

The rooms was spacious, clean and very quiet. There is no difficulty sleeping here. The tv has a range of channels and there is a media port for HDMI, USB etc on the desk. All of the above was added to by the fantastic staff at this hotel. From reception through to restaurant/bar and room maintenance. Everyone made me feel very welcome.

The food here is excellent. I ate here many times during the week and found the food to vary greatly and was always top quality.

You could have many perspectives on a hotel like this.

One perspective could be: Yet another boring, slightly worn, no-frills business hotel in a dull neighbourhood.

Even if the above is true - I rate it 5 stars because of the following features - which makes it a perfect fit for me - a regular business traveller.

1. 3 minutes walk from Drammen Central Station (great!)
2. Everything in the room works, and all what I need is there (ok!)
3. Sleep quality is good - a nice bed to my liking (great!)
4. Noise levels (even in a room facing the railway line) are ok and almost no trains a night (ok!)
5. Excellent, included-in-your-stay, dinner/buffet from 18:00-21:00 (really great!)
6. 2 minutes to running paths leading into the "mountains" (really great!)
7. Clearly-above-standard fitness facilities (really great!)
8. Above-average breakfast and free coffee-specialities (great!)
9. I felt welcomed by the hotel staff (great!)

That I why I like this hotel - and will come back. This is not the sort of romantic-get-away hotel - just a really nice business hotel in a city which otherwise is fairly dull (sorry Drammen).

Room Tip: If you prefer to go to bed early, prefer open windows (at summer time) and prefer quiet - ask for a...

Hoomey hotel with really friendly staff. I was travelling for a conference with my partner and we were very satisfied by the quality of the services. We were thrilled by their rich buffet that was available for both breakfast and dinner. Coffees, tea and chocolate were also available to customers throughout the day (how great is that?). Not to mention of course that it is walking distance from the train station I would definitely recommend this hotel!

This is an excellent hotel with a warm atmosphere. The receptionist that we met was very welcoming and helpful. We were three friends staying at this hotel just over one night, and the room we had was very spacious and had a luxurious feel to it. Checking in at Tollboden we were informed of the evening meal, which had a nice ring in our ears considering we had had 2 hours on the train and bus and was starving. The receptionist told us that tonight's meal was tacos, I love tacos, but my friend was very surprised to see that it wasn't just tacos, but also a variety of sea food to choose from, so she was in heaven as well.

The breakfast was also really nice, lots of variety to choose from, and you had the choice to fry your own eggs :) All in all we had a brilliant, but alas short stay at Tollboden :D

A hotel for those who like to be a bit homey and the standard on the room is very high! You can make your own waffles in the afternoon - mmh taste good! - and get at free meal in the evening. The staff was service minded and you feel taken care of

I am often in Drammen and I have been in many hotels but this is surely my favourite.
Close walking from the express train to the airport (250 NOK single ticket, if buy at the distributor is cheaper than from the desk), international breakfast of good quality, wide and comfortable rooms and, if do not want to leave the hotel, a nice restaurant.
The lobby has a wide quiet area where you can have conversation with guests/colleagues.
The hotel does also have a fitness center;
To mention the kindness of the reeption people;
Price on average with the country.
