First, the pool. Perfect for me, who lap swims. A bit wider than a lane, views excellent. Likely disappointing for a rec swimmer who wants to play-this is more for workout.
Sauna (W): excellent. Clean, and the views from the picture window? Wow! Top floor so modesty is not an issue saw a rainbow to the left over the hills and the fjord to the right.
Breakfast was good quality, typical euro-fare, and decent variety. And no one does a soft boiled egg like Scandinavia. Creamy and delicious, and coming from happy farm chickens due to public policies and standards.
The restaurant 34 was the best food I had. Not cheap, but work took me to two other "fancy" places and neither compared with regard to food and courtesy of staff. I was so happy afterward...
The rooms were good, for an older hotel they did a good job of updates. As typical in the region, no tub, not enough electrical sockets near bed.
Staff was nice and friendly, very courteous, though not very attentive about coffee at breakfast, no overreaction when I filled my own cup.
Finally-the 5min walk to/in the train station to pick up the airport express train makes it perfect for business trips or first/last stops. A taxi from the airport to the hotel was 1400NOK; on the way back, the train was less than 200NOK as an alternative. Plus it took half the time (around 25 min)--and there is a kiosk to check into your flight.
