This hotel is outside the main centre of the city in the up and coming slightly trendy ex-harbour district of Solsiden. Having said that it was only 10-15 minutes gentle and pleasant walk to the centre of the city and to the railway station via the pedestrian and cycle track footbridge. Indeed we found the location to be excellent for our purposes and actually preferred it to the location of the city centre hotels. There are a number of restaurants and bars on the waterfront in the immediate vicinity.
As a Scandic chain hotel you know roughly what to expect, and this hotel was a typical business oriented example. However, it is well suited to the leisure guest as well and we had no complaint during our stay there. It is a fairly large hotel and therefore a little impersonal, and while service was fine it lacked the personal touches and there was no real interaction between the staff and the guests except as necessary to function.
Our stay was prepaid through Expedia on a non-refundable basis. In this way we secured excellent rates and this made it extremely good value. A 3 night stay here was very enjoyable. The room was good and very clean, and the breakfast buffet was extensive and well prepared.
We would have welcomed extra pillows, a room safe and tea and coffee-making facilities in our room, but none of these is common in Norway in this class of hotel and these are minor criticisms.
We would happily stay here again and would recommend it to anyone who wants good value and is comfortable in this type of hotel.
