I stayed at this hotel for one night before flying out of the Stavanger Airport. The location is perfect, an easy walk to everything in the downtown area of Stavanger. That being said, I think everything is an easy walk to everything in Stavanger. Parking was 100kr/night or about $17/night. It's a public garage and there seem to be a few of them around and they're all run by the city and the same price. Very convenient. The restaurant is just fine. Very nice quality and service. However, staying in a hotel that includes dinner in the price is usually the best value in Norway. Understand that when I say value, this is on the Norwegian price scale. Traveling in Norway is 2x to 3x typical United Sates prices. Everyone was super friendly and attentive. That being said, also on the Norwegian scale, so yes there will be one or two servers for the entire restaurant. They get paid quite well, so read your Norway guidebook before you tip. Breakfast had the usual Norwegian spread, but also had the cooked to order omelets that are common in American chain hotels. There's no controls for the heated floor in the bathroom, but it was never cold, so I think it is in fact heated. The room was compact, but with giant pillows, a well stocked minibar, and a nice big screen on the wall. Clarions are a safe bet in Norway!
The location was prefect. Very close to city center. Staff very friendly. Restaurant and bar was closed during the entire 8 night stay due to winter holidays. Single bed room was too crowded so had to ask for a Deluxe Single Bedroom. The bedroom was very dusty but bed was very comfortable. I enjoyed my stay overall. However, I wish I had been informed in advice about the restaurant and hoped the room was a bit cleaner.
I chose this hotel because of its proximity to work, and because it was rated by another site as the 'best business hotel' in Stavanger. I found my room to be clean and comfortable, and the location was a nice balance between the downtown and other parts of the city. The complimentary breakfast was nice, and is served until 10AM. But there were a few things that disappointed me: - There is no in-house restaurant for dinner. (It's possible to get a meal in the bar, but the menu is limited.) - The complimentary wireless Internet requres passwords from vouchers that expire every few hours. - The lights over the bathroom sink were out when I first arrived, and it took till the next day to get them working. (Shouldn't the staff have noticed this? The bathroom was quite dark, and shaving was near impossible.) - Calling down to the front desk often took 10-15 rings, if there was any answer at all.
Very clean, quiet and restful hotel with a good muli-choice and free breakfast buffet. For Stavanger hotel rates and short walk location to activity, this is a real bargain.
