Not situated in the best area of town but at leastbthe rooms are clean and spacious. The guy that checked us in was not the friendliest of souls I have met but then again I have no inclination to marry him or date him.
This is a basic three star hotel only five minutes walk from the Central Station. It's good value, clean and the staff are friendly and helpful, which more than makes up for the lack of frills. The price includes a reasonable buffet breakfast (different breads, meats, cheeses, eggs, cereal, yoghurt and fruit) which is served in a slightly canteen-like atmosphere - but on our second morning we discovered the small courtyard at the rear and had our breakfast out there, which was much pleasanter.
The street it's on is pedestrianised (although that didn't mean there wasn't a fair amount of noise at night!) and has a number of bars and cafes, but it's really about a ten minute walk from the city centre and most of the action.
Unique Quality: There's free internet access in the lobby (although the single PC was in heavy demand).
Thon is a major Norwagian hotel chain. The spectrum hotel is its low-end brand. This hotel is centrally located (6 mins walk from the main train station) and costs 795 kr. for a double room (walk-in price).
The room is clean but the toilet is small and pooly facilitated, plus the heating was not strong enough to shield the Scandinavian chill.
Directions: The main train station
I was really surprised with this hotel. I am not a hotel snob by any means and I am pretty easy to please. The staff was great and very pleasant. I had a single room which was plenty for one person, and it was very clean. The hotel is along Brugata which is a pedestrianized little street filled with small shops and pubs. It is also just down from Jernbanetorget metro station and Storgata tram stop. The city center was in easy walking distance and it was pleasantly peaceful at night.
Unique Quality: Found that I felt secure leaving my bags for a while when I checked in/out, and the back patio off the restaurant was quiet and a great place to have a morning coffee.
Does anyone know if there are laundry facilities at this hotel? If not, are there laudry places near by? Would you know the hours?
