Pros: The rooms with balconies overlooking the fjord are great.
Right across the street from the water.
The owners are wonderful people. They are so helpful and accommodating. They helped with tour plans and tickets as well as ferry information.
The breakfast was very tasty and complete.

Pros: Excellent location in Balestrand...right on the water. Great staff. Fantastic, but pricey, buffet dinner. The view from rooms in the tower facing the water cant be beat, if in the higher floors (6-8)
Cons: Tower rooms need a refresh. Tour groups can have exclusive access to the impressive historic public spaces, shutting out the independent traveler.
Pros: The history of the original hotel is extensive, the staff wonderful and the architecture, interior and exterior was fascinating.
Cons: The addition in the 60's doesn't match the beauty of the original hotel.
The Kvikne hotel is one of the most famous in the fjords of Norway and although the rooms might not be quite up to the grand style of the historical part of the hotel, they are practical and comfortable. This is a landmark hotel consisting of a wooden building of Swiss architectural style which houses the reception and restaurant and a more modern wing behind it. The Kvikne hotel is located on the banks of Sognefjord, the longest and widest of fjord in the world.
Pros: Clean rooms, although bathroom was still wet, not sure whether was from cleaning or previous guest
Cons: I probably got the worst room in the hotel--had no view, rooms are very small, and beds are more like army bunks--with nice linen. Even tho wifi advertised, couldn't use it, password didn't work. Hotel did have common areas with working Internet, TV, etc, but would be nice to have that in a room. Rooms had no tv, and only 2 pieces of soap. The sink in the bathroom was very low, as designed for a child. And to my knowledge hotel had no elevator, so if u get a room on 4 th floor, good luck dragging heavy bags up there. Lucky I was traveling alone, and stayed there only 1 night. There're better hotels in town, so spend a bit more , and be comfortable
