“A bit out of the way, but nice stay”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

The Viste Strand is located a just outside of Stavanger and the building is a bit dated, however, the staff was great, rooms were clean and comfortable, and my wife and I enjoyed our two nights stay. The hotel is right on the beach and we loved sleeping to the sound of the waves at night. There is a very nice walking path along the water and neighborhood. No elevators, so we had to carry our luggage up the stairs to the 2nd floor. Beds were comfortable and the breakfast was good. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor facing the beach

We booked here because we had a car and didn't need to stay right in Stavanger (plus the good price). We had 2 twin rooms for the 4 of us and the hotel staff put us close together, which was thoughtful. If you like to walk along the coast this is a great place. Front desk ppl very nice. on site restaurant might be good, but no one eats there due to the high prices. Beer at the bar: 13 $ USD, average I guess for Oslo. Good clean rooms with coffee/tea. Breakfast was wonderful!

Room Tip: Our rooms were on the ground floor, very nice.

I hade to go to work in Randaberg and then I heard about this hotel. It is situated at the waterfront with a nice beach, This time of thte year I wouldn't recommend the water, but it was a nice place. The hotel is not new and the rooms could need a refurbishing. I liked the place, friendly staff and a nice area to go for a walk.

The first room I was given had not been made up. No duvet. Even when the receotionist saw the room she tried explaining that they had forgotten to straighten the linen. When confronted with the lack of duvet she gave up.
The second room on the third floor with no elevator was freezing cold and even had bunkbeds which appeared to be from WW2.
Service is terrible, rooms are dirty and the staff don't care. Avoid it like the plague.

Staff were friendly and helpful enough but quality of room was poor. On arrival, the room smelt stale and had a layer of dust on surfaces, hairs in the bed and stains on the carpet. Having an early flight in the morning, I was fast asleep by 20:30 but to be rudely awoken by a fire alarm test at 22:00. What appeared to be a main fire alarm bell was positioned next to the bathroom door and almost gave me a heart attack when it was activated. After 5 minutes of dazed confusion, the alarm finally stopped and I attempted to go back to sleep. That's when I noticed that I could hear everything in both the rooms to the side and most noisy of all- the room above. Needless to say, my experience was not the best at this hotel.

I had originally booked another hotel, but they were overbooked - and sent me to this hotel. The staff were personal and nice, hotelrooms and guest areas were clean and nice. What really makes you remember this hotel though - is the location. It's practically in the water by the beach. The view from my room was one of the best I've had in any hotel, looking straight out over the ocean, with an amazing sunset.
