I stayed at Hotel Breiseth in conjunction with a short business trip to Lillehammer, so I just needed a place to sleep. The room was okay, the location of the hotel was convenient and the breakfast covered all my needs. Also, they served waffles every night, free of charge, which was quite nice. The staff was helpful and both check-in...

I have been coming to Sjusjoen for a number of years from the UK to ski. Travel times vary because of the variations in flight times from the UK, and the limited public transport from Lillehammer. That has meant a number of stopovers over the years at Oslo, Gardemoen or Lillehammer. I have used the Breiseth a couple of times,...

The rooms need to be upgraded and the cleaning should be improved. To much fuss on the floor. Old beer can in the room. Overall very good atmosphere. Nice and friendly staff. Nice breakfast area and very good food.

Super convenient location, good value for money, clean tidy rooms and very helpful staff. Breakfast was great. It could be improved by offering a menu from the bar for lunch or evening meal. I would definitely use again and recommend to friends and colleagues. Really handy for the train station and town centre.

I had one week with work in Lillehammer and feel lucky to have experienced this stay at Hotel Breiseth. The hotel met my needs as it was close to the train and busses, and only a few meters walk to Storgata and places to enjoy in the evening.

We stayed again at Breiseth for an extended weekend of skiing. Lillehammer is a fine starting point for exploring the neighboring skiing areas. The is centrally located with fine parking facilities. The staff is very friendly. The hotel needs a little update, but all in all a great place to stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
First Hotel Breiseth, established in 1898, is one of the oldest hotels in Lillehammer. At the time of its opening, it was considered the most fashionable hotel in town. During its first 40 years of operation the hotel was very popular among a group of artist. Cash was not always forthcoming, and as a result the hotel received a number of paintings still decorating its walls. As a guest at our hotel you will be within walking distance of attractions like Maihaugen, Lillehammer art museum, the pedestrian precinct Gagata, several restaurants and a range of activities. Ski bus to Hafjell departs close to the hotel. ... more   less
