Horrible place, me and my boys had a long weekend at this terrible hotell, we paid 10k for the hole weekend. But after 15 hours we GOT kicked out, without any warnings. The place stanked, no isolation and the staff was disrespectfull, absoluttely awfull.

Comfortable rooms in a really good location of the city, close to the center and many shops. It has a shared living room and kitchen facilities. Great for short stay. For additional fee, car park is also available.

Thank Tibor R

Dear Ràńà H, A taxi is about 200,- NOK. And jonathangohyongsing is correct with the bus prices. If you pre-pay for your ticket it is about 36,- in kiosks, or you can buy a 24 hour pass. Best regards, Fredrik ABC hotell
