Really glad that we booked this hotel. The room facilities are on a par with the budget chains in the UK. The soundproofing was excellent and you wouldn't know you were next to a hospital if you didn't see all the new parents with babies in cots. The reception staff were really helpful and tolerated our inability to say anything other than takk in Norwegian with good grace.
It's a good 20min walk into town but there are plenty of buses and well marked cycle and footpaths. Definitely worth getting a bus pass instead of paying per journey. Cycling is so easy with routes well marked and separated from traffic making it really easy to get about.
Apart from the price, the winner for this hotel was the breakfast. Fresh, tasty, more than you could possibly eat in a week and even the boiled eggs were done to perfection. The cafe did other meals too, excellent quality and cheaper than most restaurants.
I would definitely recommend this hotel
