Located alongside Stavanger university hospital - about 15-20 en route from the airport to thecity centre. right opposite the bus stop if you take the flybus from airport costing 150 kroners.
So was easy for me to get there.
Service - The reception looks more like check in counters at airport. The guy didnt seem to be enthusiastic, maybe was having a bad day or so . Ididnt get any information apart from eing handed over the key and I had to ask information about the breakfast, wifi,floor, etc.
Free wifi but no signal in my room - 210(single). Initilally declined my request to change the room, after a lot of persuasion ,he agreed to look into it but never got back. I had to go to the lobby after an hour and then was given another room.
Rooms - were very decent , clean , well maintained. Guess , it got be as it is attached to a hospital.Not very sound proofed, because could hear a kid crying next door and the noise of air ambulances landing.
Breakfast - fairly decent variety of hotel as expected for the price.
The guy at the reception next morning was very helpful and he infact gave me all the information, I needed and planned it out for my trip to Preikestolen and to bergen inless than 5minutes and the plan gave e an extra hour in scavenger city centre than my own original plan.
So, thanks to him.
Would I visit again - No
It is most suited for hospital lodging or backpackers, looking to rest for a night at a cheap price.
Personally, I would stay in the city centre.
Oh yes, there is a pick up bus, from the hotel to Preikestolen.
