This hotel is a very good choice.It is in a nice location with a nice view, the service is good enough and the rooms are comfortable and attentive.The breakfast is rich in dishes.And the price of the rooms are at normal levels
Fairly standard hotel. Clean rooms with comfortable beds, rather small bathroom but functional. Very nice breakfast in the morning with hot breakfast options as well. Free parking provided on site. Be aware that the hotel is well outside of the city center. I was traveling with car so was not an issue for me and I'm not aware of the proximity to public transportation options. My one complaint is poor wi-fi signal in the rooms, good in the lobby. Overall a very good value by Norway standards.
Alsto located just outside centre,short distanse to Sandnes and Stavanger. Recomend to have a car, Easy parking right outside. Big rooms and good beds. It is a economic hotell ,but still good rooms. Could be better breakfast .....not very fresh....
We stayed for one night. Hotel decor is not modern, a bit dark inside, but functional. Room was large and clean (lighting not the best); but price was reasonable for what we got Really enjoyed the swimming pool. Tea/Coffee was available in the breakfast area at all times (can take back to room) and breakfast was reasonable. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Easy drive to the port and good parking area outside.
This hotel is very much out of town, you will need to take the bus (which is several blocks away) or a cab to the city center. The decor is dark- the walls are painted black. The bed was clean. but the bathroom was horrific. It looked like a dorm bathroom and I was disgusted having to shower in bare feet. The bathroom has never seen bleach a day in its existence. The bathroom was also so small that my knees hit the wall when I used the toilet, and I am only 5'3" and 115 pounds so that was not necessary. However, the staff was excellent (minus that there was no one present when we went to check out in the morning) and the breakfast was the best I had during my time in Oslo. Bottom line is that you get exactly what you pay for with this hotel, and the price was the cheapest I could find in Stavanger.
This hotel was clean, safe and neat with a comfy bed and nice room. I couldn't get the wifi to work well, but that did seem particular to my phone. The pool is nice but much smaller than pictures indicate. I can't say anything at all was wrong and breakfast was good but I felt the staff weren't genuinely interested - e.g., didn't give you a map of the town or an indication where breakfast would be, just let you find it all, and it was the last day until I found the hot water! There were very limited directions to the hotel from the bus stop or to find the right bus stop (and this hotel is definitely out of town if you're on foot with bags. Not walking distance). I also left early to catch the bus in to town for an 8 am trip and missed breakfast. No interest shown in making me up a sandwich or anything. Like I said. No complaints with the room or the staff, just underwhelmed. You need to pay extra for the laundry service but you do it yourself. It's out of it's price range in my opinion.
We stayed here 4 nights to explore Stavanger region. The room is fairly big and comfortable. Staffs are friendly and breakfast is pretty good. Free carpark and a short 10-15mins to town and ferry terminal to Tau (to Pulpit Rock). However, we were given rooms at the basement, room 505, directly below the rest area near the reception. We can hear the kids stomping around. Also, can hear the vehicles and bikers driving and riding near the road. Lastly, the bathroom shower drainage is mildly choke, and hence the water builds up and flood the shower area. Hence, we have to turn off the GAP for the water to drain before turning on again.
Cobweb on the stair railing, dirty carpets in common areas and in hotel room, mould on tiles in the bathroom - this hotel was really disappointing. Simple breakfast. The hotel could have been so much better if the cleaning had been better. Free parking. Would not stay again.
Very nice place with plentiful breakfast included and free parking. Staff is nice and smiling. The rooms have a beautiful decor and are absolutely clean. The rates are very good fir what it offers, at least during the week and in summer. Not in walking distance of city centre, though.
A friend and myself checked in here very late on Thursday 11th may. We were shown to our room number 117 on the ground floor , which I can only describe as unbelievable! There was a huge stain in the middle of the carpet, it looked like somebody had been sick on it! The bathroom, which was about as big as my airing cupboard, was disgusting. Cracks in the sink, mould on the tiles and it smelt of stale urine! I complained to the girl on reception and she said she would try and find us another room. She took us to look at 2 more which quite honestly were no better! So she said that we would have to wait until the next morning to sort it out. The only saving grace was that the beds were clean. It was a very unpleasant nights stay and we only slept for about 4 hours. At 7 am we went to reception who said they would find us another better room. I asked the lady on reception why that room was so bad and she said because they were waiting fir money to be able to refurbish it. Why on earth do they think it is acceptable to rent it out as it is!!! We were told that a new room would be ready for us at 12pm and if we wanted to use the showers in the swimming pool area we could. We decided to wait for our new room , which was much better, although during our stay the housekeeping was much to be desired. Dirty cups not cleared, beds not made properly. The facilities in rooms are also very basic, no hairdryer, no kettle. Breakfast was adequate although the cooked food was only ever lukewarm. One thing I will say though is that the majority of the staff were very helpful and tea and coffee was available all the time from the breakfast room. This hotel needs a serious revamp and my friend and I would certainly not stay here again unless it did.
