Nothing :-( 1. Price was the most expencive from all other 3 hotels we visit, included sas. 2. They where surprised that we had a reservation?? I did show them my printed copy.3. We did book a room in the renovated wing where the room was very poor and no confort at all. I cannot immagine how the "not renovated" rooms looks like!? 4. At 18:00 the kitchen closes for diner, that is the time that it must be opened, no? 5. Breakfist was very poor and you have to find plates, spoons, knives, ect. Yourselve! This is the 10th time I book a hotel in Booking.com and value for money was always realistic, only now. I do not know what conditions they must comply, but I am sure that they are not prepared for an organization like this.
Staff is very kind. Breakfast is very good too. The price is too high respect to room's quality. You can find better rooms at a lower price.
Our room was very good,large ,spotlessly clean and a very luxurious double jacuzzi in the bathroom was provided.The staff were very helpful and obliging.Lovely location beside little lake. we arrived 8.30pm and we had asked the hotel to keep food for us,they did but it was not very enjoyable.Perhaps we were unlucky as we were told the kitchen was being upgraded currently.The whole set up is on the casual side a little like a hostel rather than a hotel,good for an activity holiday .
Comfortable. Evening meal on Saturday poor. No room service.
had not internet conection in my room
We appreciated the free evening buffet. It was nice to have a break from the high dinner prices of Norway. Our room was very quiet and pleasant. The bathroom was large with lots of counter space. Parking was difficult and you had to pay for it.
friendly staff small single beds in double room - bathroom ok but minimum comfort
Our room was in the refurbished part and was very nice and comfortable. The hotel is centrally located. The choices for breakfast were very limited (esp. considering the price)and the older part of the building looks a little time-worn.
The staff were just serviceminded in a way more than you can expect.
I liked the location of the hotel very well Parking of car was probelematic. I wished the guests would be encouraged to park their cars in such a way to allow others to park. In essence, the parking was quite haparzard
Breakfast was poorly presented
OK location and parking. Breakfast was good. It was whar i expected for a business trip stop over.
fabulous feel like home: there is tove who makes your breakfast most mornings, others who make noon lunch; coffee is hot, chocolate is hot, waffles divine with lots of jam, meatballs done A+! all dining done in this cozy,homelike site with the local men discussing world affairs and solving themas well---sitting in back room with coffee.upstairs has a TV and sitting room on 3rd fl. with lots of old or donated books---we read a lot of them; we stayed 4 nights here and used this place as a jump off for our trains to Bo and Porsgrunn. It is a hike to the train station from the Dag Bondeheim but good for the legs!! Use their back enterance door facing the city library and the Greig concert place after hours as coffeestova door is locked. Only thing is that we found no reason to not need to stay another night or we would have. Desk clerks were so nice and promised to fix info for late comers who want to come in and find front door locked.
It is very conveneient, close to the town centre and bus station. Also, it is cheap considering that Norway is an expensive country. It is better to have panel TVs.
The reception lady was really helpfull The rest of the stay
I think that the hotel was nice, clean with a helpful staff, comfortable bed and an excellent wireless connection in the room. It was a good value for the price in a very expensive country. Would definitely use this hotel again if I am back in Skien
The stuff is very friendly and helpfull
The light in the room
Best hotel for comfy beds that we stayed at and we did at last 14 different ones in the month we were in Norway; that includes the ones we had for our Globus tour as part of that month; loved the separate bathroom, decor! Couldn't do breakfast as we had an early train to catch; would have appreciated a packed one, given us the night B4...but we didn't ask for it either... perhaps? Loved the fair trade support for tea and coffee plus the fancy machine in the bar area; luggage storage is great service (free) as is internet access for free; You could not help it but the night we were there, there was some big drama group and a huge audience with two very loud amplified singers right below our room....lots of noise from crowd...all eating apples for goodness sake; we like the window ajar a bit at night and that was not to be for us that night; no complaints; wish we would have stayed another night but we had to be in Porsgrunn to get that train and we were coming from Skien;
It is central with good access to the river front & restaurants. it is quiet & food good.
