Newly renovated hotel in a very good location downtown Arendal. Close to the harbour, shopping and many restaurants. Nice reception area and the room was very modern and clean. We got upgraded to a bigger room which was very nice, it even got two TV's. But the view from our room at 2nd floor was very poor, just a backyard.....

Clean and New Hotel rooms. Just what you need, nothing more. Friendly staff. Breakfast is excellent start of the day. Missing a gym...(some external arrangement though, not sure how it works...). TripAdvisor require more text to accept the review, so here is just to fill in

We got a newly renovated room, although many rooms are still not renovated. Super fresh and neat. The breakfast was perfect for us, friendly and serviceminded staff and a good location downtown Arendal. We were happy with our stay!

The hotel was under renovation. However, we were given the worst hotel room ever - totally worn down - at no reduction of price. It was EXPENICE and bad! The worst thing is that they must have had renovated rooms free with the apparent low number of guests.

Undergoing refurbishment and the rooms has become very nice. Bed was superb, pillows was a little thin for my taste but there was plenty of them. I had a very good night sleep. Breakfast included and it was also a very good experience. Clean and with a calm atmosphere.

This was a 3 night stay in the lovely town of Arendal. The reception ieasy to find at the moment - we had to venture down a side street past Egon, presumably becuase of the building work, but ince there the check in was smooth and efficient. Finding the elevator to the room wasn't fool proof either but I eventually...

This hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the old town and harbour in Arendal. Our room was very large and clean, and the shower was excellent! It might be because we were there off-season, but the room was very quiet despite overlooking the street. The breakfast buffet was very good quality and offered lots of variety. Altogether a...
