I met no one else in this place, so without the pub next door I would never have dared to go into the abandoned public rooms and up the 3 flights of very smelly stairs. It was just too creepy and slummy, and had an abandoned warehouse-feel to it. There was a ramshackle "handicap-elevator" hidden in a corner, you had to keep your hand on the button to keep it going, while it screeched and creaked, and sl-ow-lly jerked upwards. It was really frightening being (probably) all alone in the building, especially as everything else was so shabby and broken down. Although once was enough with the elevator, I had a suitcase to bring down the last day, but then the elevator creaked to a halt and gave up between two floors, luckily on the way up to me. There were barrels of beer and other stuff stored in the stairwell, and It was all very unappetizing. The room was tiny and shabby, the bedlamp didn't work, and there was a sign saying that the fire alarm would start if shower damp was allowed into the room. If it had been cheap I would have understood the deal and kept away, but I was charged 995 NOK per night. MY MAIN POINT IS: THE HOMEPAGE GIVES A WRONG IMPRESSION OF THIS PLACE - THIS IS NOT A HOTEL. (Breakfast was served at the Victoria hotel next door, which is also where I paid the bill. When I commented on the homepage versus the real experience I was told that this was a two-star hotel. Two stars? Never in a million years.)
