"Go out of the airport door, turn right, and the hotel is 50 metres in front of you." That was the reply I got when I asked for directions in the airport. I couldn't believe how close the airport was to the terminal building. Despite its close proximity it seems to be adequately sound insulated as I don't recall being disturbed by aircraft noise.
I found the bed a little too soft for my liking and the hotel committed the cardinal sin in my book of not thoroughly cleaning the bathroom. I saw hairs of a previous occupant on the bathroom floor. Also the builder's skip in the corridor on the second floor upset the ambiance!
Apart from those negatives the hotel was tastefully decorated and comfortable. Breakfast started early (0500) which allowed those of us checking out early to eat. Breakfast was typical for a Norwegian hotel. Nothing special, but adequate.
Free wi-fi is standard and there were a couple of english-speaking channels on the TV including BBC World News.
I also noticed that you can check in for your flight from within the hotel lobby which is handy.
