“OK for two nights but I want more when on a business trip”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

As I was on a business trip this fell a little short for me. I missed a min bar to get me something cold to drink, a safe to put my laptop in and the ability to make myself some coffee in the morning. Also the Wi-Fi speed was 0.9/9 MB – yes, this is no typo so maybe to accommodate tourists uploading pictures? I think this would have been a nicer hotel for me if I was coming as a tourist.
There was a desk to work at but half of it was occupied by a large flat screen TV. Unfortunately I didn't have time to watch it so for me it was mostly in the way. The double bed was of the type with two beds on wooden runners that slide very well on the carpet if you try to lie in the middle. Even if I slept alone I nearly ended up on the floor. The room looked modern and being on the corner of the ground floor I had too nice a view of the crossroad outside and had to shut the curtains. The bathroom looked nice and had a heated floor that worked randomly.

I had read unfavourable things about the breakfast and the room downstairs but was presently surprised. It was decorated in old train style with one wall having real old train windows with pictures behind and the old train sets. The selection of food was adequate and was being refilled so it didn't run out of anything the time I was there. I would also have liked to try the free coffee and waffles in the evening, but could not find time for it.
When checking out they tried to charge me standard rate and not my company rate. It was only discovered because I had forgotten I stayed two nights and questioned the price. They were quick to correct it though.

The quality of this hotel does not correspond to the high roomprice (about 1200 NOK). The rooms are very basic and has a cheapish look. Several rooms have poor views, either on the ground floor towards the street or towards the appartement building just 15 meters away.

The breakfast is the most negative about the place. The breakfast area is placed below ground with no windows. The breakfast menu is basic/uninteresting.

Pros for this hotel is good service from the receptionist and free waffles in the evening!

Had 2 nights at Svartisen which is owned and driven by OleTobias. Very bad experience: bad air in rooms, very much noise from the outside, not clean. Breakfast below the cellar, no windows, dark. You miss your apetites just entering the room. Breakfast is limited to its minimum despite the high price. If it would be a low cost hotel, all these desagrements would be accepted. But the price category ålaces this hotel among expensive hotels in Norway. Therefore you would also expect some better comfort.

Only stayed here one night on a business trip and did not use the bar or restaurant at all. I've stayed in a lot of hotels around the world, but this must rank as one of the worst I've stayed in. Hotel very shabby inside and out. The room added a new dimension to the word "basic" and looked like it had been furnished from a jumble sale. Nice view from my room window directly into the window of the appartment opposite about 5m away.
We ordered a taxi to take us to dinner but it didn't turn up, and on questioning the receptionist found out she had forgotten to order it. No apology given , just a shrug of the shoulders.
Terrible place.

Checkin was fast and friendly.

Room had old furniture with old TV set. Not very nice.

Bathroom in good condition, but very small

WIFI was free and worked well.

Liked that they offered free coffee/tea & waffles in the evening.

Breakfast was below Norwegian standard.

Fairly high room price for this low quality.

I would look for other alternatives.
