The hotel two different buildings which makes it difficult to go to bar or breakfast if you are in the wrong building. The building outside has old rooms that needs renovation. All is old and scattered aroums in 2 buildings. Still quality in general is rather food.

£110 a night stay. They have done the bare minimum trying to update this room. The floors are damaged and the electric heater looks like its from the early 90's. This would he ok if it was a £60 room but not up to standard for over £100.

Situated only a short walk from the train station, this hotel is always my first choice when in Drammen. Drammen has been through a remarkable face lift and the nice Union area and characteristic Ypsilon bridge is only a few minutes walk away. This hotel has seen better days but location, parking in the basement, friendly staff and clean rooms...

Location very close to the bus- and the trainstation. One night in a small room is ok. The breakfast was good, but cheese like brie and other toppings was not supplemented the last half hour of the breakfast. Bacon was very good and so was the scrambled eggs.

Location of the hotel is great, very close to the train/bus station. Less than a 5 minute walk. Staff is friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself is OK, the rooms are clean and on the small side. The beds are very narrow, if you toss and turn a lot in your sleep you might find yourself on the floor in...

The hotel is very central, the rooms are ok the dinner we got served tasted good, but felt very cafeteria like(props to the chef though because you could tell he's really trying to make bad/cheap quality food look and taste better). The staff was lovely and made us all feel welcome even with all the guide dogs that came along...

A nice well placed hotel with pleasant and friendly reception stuff. The rooms are very small and you feel like in cage. The bathrooms with the shower cabinet are so small that there is only one way to get in and out. Close to rail road station and the center. For business trip or an overnight stay accept

I've stayed here twice now, mainly because I haven't time to look for something else. It's Norway, if you're from the UK it's going to be expensive. 150 NOK for overnight parking is excessive. Room was basic but everything you need. Very clean. No aircon. Breakfast was nice. Good central location.
