“My first choice in Kongsberg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

This hotel has a warm, freindly feel. Across the street from the train station, and just down the street fromt a new ICA market. Free parking is a real attraction, saving the hastle from the usual privately run Norwegian money making parking racket. Dinner food is excellent, although the breakfast is a bit basic. Brit and the staff are always most helpful, and make this a home away from home when travelling to Kongsberg.

Nice quaint hotel with an incredible chef at the restaurant! Meat, fish or anything is done to perfection. I travel quite a bit over the world and this is one of the best restaurants I have been too. Its not ultra expensive (for Norway that is) but just good. Had lamp chops, tender and cooked perfect, halibut and swordfish was phenomenal and the steaks fantastic and perfectly cooked.

Room Tip: Upper floor not facing the train station.

Hi S, Have spent 3 days at hotell, roms have very high standard. The position is very central in town , I can just recommend it. Breakfast is a bit simple, could be better. But if you do not have it as primary on your travel you will not be dissapointed:)

A quite nice hotel, with quite spacious rooms. Such a pity that one of the chairs in our room was very smelly. Otherwise the room var nice and clean. Breakfast is classic continental, OK, but not much more.

Very nice staff though, cosy and polite.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2011

I took a class at Kongsberg Maritime, and this was where my company elected to have me and my boyfriend stay. Overall, the hotel was average, but the service was very good. The room we stayed in was rather small...after reading other reviews about large rooms with fireplaces, I have to admit I was a little disappointed. The staff was very good about accommodating us though, I was originally supposed to be in a room with a twin bed, but they moved us into one that would comfortably sleep two adults. They also brought us extra blankets and a space heater for our room, since the central steam wasn't on for the winter yet. Hey, we're from Alabama...Norway was cold to us!

The breakfast buffet was also average, we did manage to find a couple things that we enjoyed. We did not have dinner or drinks at the hotel, as the prices seemed a little steep, even for Norway.

Again, the room was rather small, and the bathroom was tiny...though it did have heated tile flooring, which was nice! The bed was comfortable, though the Norwegian style of bedding took some getting used to, since the comforter is smaller than the bed. There was a mini-fridge in the room, but no toiletries were provided.

The shuttle going to and from the Kongsberg training center was very good and very prompt. For anyone going here for a class there, I would definitely recommend taking the shuttle rather than attempting to drive yourself to class. For other transportation, the hotel is right across the street from the train station, which is very convenient.

All in all, not a bad stay, though it still makes me laugh to think that we traveled halfway around the world to Norway...and stayed in a Best Western!

Room Tip: Apparently you should ask for a newer room. I'm not really sure what we got, but it was small...

It's close to the railway station (but you do not hear the trains passing so that is good). and based as centrally as you can ask for in Kongsberg.

The rooms vary quite a lot and I would make sure to ask for one of the newest rooms. The rooms in themselves are quite spacy and the beds are comfortable. The cleanliness vary quite much from stay to stay, but the staff is always friendly and helpful.

However the internet facilities are awful and thankfully they know that as well and are trying to improve it. But currently you should not plan to get much work done other than e-mail. Contacting your companys server is painful and you will not get much work done.

Breakfast is small but has everything you need.

Room Tip: Ask for the newest rooms
