The hotel badly needs a renovation. The rooms are worn and so is the restaurant and reception area. The hotel appears to be quite outdated. BUT they have very good breakfast with very nice breakfast hosts. The reception staff are also cute and service minded. The location is superb.

Hotel was located with easy access with car from main road E18 close to the river Drammenselven. Rooms were clean and well equipped and the bed was for a good night sleep!
With little traffic in the area the night s were quiet. The morning started with a wonderful breakfast in the nice restaurant were you could find the most of it on the table.
Bar was also nice, but as always in Norway the prices are in the upper region !
Reception staff were helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: With little traffic during the night all the rooms seem to be ok.

Went on Business trip and stayed a night at the hotel. Stayed on 4th floor. Room was with a nice view. Staff were polite and corteous. Internet connect was good. Nice place to stay when on business trip. There is a supermarket opposite not far from the hotel as well which is also good.
Taxi fare to Drammen train station is about €8.

Hint: Credit cards are advisable as a means of payment

So boring to write a review of another norwegian hotell  I spend one night at this hotel for business reason. It looks like that hotel is used mostly for seminars and business meetings. The room needs renovation and proper cleaning. A big cobweb was “decorating” a corner of the wall. Carpet on the floor – not very nice. Bathroom is old and there was no hairdryer there. Glasses at the bathroom were very dirty. It is ok if you do not have any other choice. Food was very good - the only positive point.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a hairdryer and no dirty carpet on the floor. Ask for those rooms.
