“Really great hotel right in the centre of town”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

This place is great!
It used to be a grain silo, but was converted for the Winter Olympics. And they did a fantastic job.
The staff are extremely happy, friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. The facilities in the rooms are more than adequate. There is free wifi throughout the hotel, and a free internet terminal in reception.
The breakfast is awesome! One of the best I had in hotels in Scandinavia. There is also a good restaurant attached to the hotel with views over the river.
The center of town is about 2 minutes walk away, and the train/bus station is about 5 mins.
An excellent choice for Lillehammer, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back!

The staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel is a converted grain silo and is one of the tallest buildings around. The rooms are comfortable and clean. There is a restaurant connected to the hotel which served us a good dinner and also breakfast buffet. Hotel is conveniently located near shops and other dining locations. Recommended. Only downsides were a really small shower and a very heavy room key.

OK, so as others have said it's not got the biggest rooms, but for a one/two night stay it's fine. It's just a five minute wlak from the station and close to the main shopping streets. It's clean and the staff are incredibly polite and helpful. The adjoining restaurant, Egons, is a fine place to eat and retiring to the Toppen Bar afterwards for a view of Lillehammer is a must. Just remember - size doesn't always matter

Stayed 2 nights on our easter holiday in Lillehammer.
Always the same smiles from the reception and the staff.
Kitchen prepared some egg and bacon just for us while we sat alone in the breakfastroom!
Only disapointment was the lack of snow in Lillehammer this Easter.

Best choice in town.

not the biggest hotel in town but room ok and bed was very comfortable. The hotel sports a top-floor bar (9th floor) which provide some view. Free wifi and simple but good breakfast buffet.

Stayed in Lillehammer for one night and wished I could have stayed longer. Flew into Oslo and then drove to Lillehammer, 2 1/4 hour drive. Slept off the jet lag and then went exploring. We did not realize how close we were to main shopping areas and the Olympic Stadium. Everything is within walking distance in Lillehammer, it's a very quaint town. The Egon restaurant is connected to the hotel and it is top notch. The continental breakfast is excellent, hot and cold items. The hotel has a a top floor bar which overlooks the town. We happened to be there when the town opened the dam and released water into the river, the town was packed with people to watch. It was amazing! We could here the water racing down the river while in our room, it was so relaxing. The room was perfect, stay at Hotel Molla, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Ask to be in a room where you can hear the water in the river.

We stay only 1 night in this hotel. We were 3 (2 adults and 1 girl) and we got tiny room(but relatively expansive), with extremely limited place. Service was good, the hotel and the room were clean and wellcoming, breakfast was good.
Take into account, that you will pay for hotel's parking. Another option - to park on the street from 7 PM till 9 AM for free.
Generally, we were not so impressed by the hotel, it's just OK.But Lillehammer is very nice town with good ethnographic museum.
