A few years back we stayed at "The View" Monument Valley, Arizona, USA. I remember thinking "we will never again find a hotel room with such a superb view", well he have, and this is it.
OK, don't think of it as a hotel, think of it as an apartment. There are two bedrooms, both doubles although one is quite small and a large lounge with kitchen area with four ring cooker, microwave and fridge/freezer, plenty of pots and pans. The lounge leads to your balcony with its view out along the fjord. There is a reasonably well-stocked grocery shop in the village which stayed open to 8pm. Plenty of car parking available alongside the apartments. A good wi-fi connection is included in the price of the room.
So what are the downsides? Well if you are expecting a full-service hotel you will be disappointed. The room was clean and spotless, but for example you have to put the duvet cover on the duvet and make the bed yourself. There is no dishwasher so you have to wash up by hand. If you are staying more than one night no one comes in to service the room. For us these did not present a problem, but you need to be aware before booking.
On arrival go to the adjoining cafe which serves as a reception where (hopefully) like us you will receive a warm welcome. It is open from 11am and you can eat dinner there if you don't want to cook for yourself.
Flam itself is a tiny village with its famous railway and a great pub, but be aware it is a destination for cruise ships and when they arrive the village can get very busy for a while.
We spent a total of three nights in the apartments and we were well pleased with our choice.
