Located near the fortress, this is ideal for attending the evening light and film show at the fortress. The vies are wonderful, the breakfast is good, but we experienced problems with our reservation. The receptionist couldn't find our reservation in the system, but he offered to register us manually, but at full price, even if we showed him the booking confirmation. We ended up with the correct price, but we didn't get the sea view we had booked.

Nice facilities, fantastic location near the "Fredriksten Festning" fortress.
Nice overview of the city center and harbour.
Good food /breakfast.

BUT......
Got call from hotel, day before arrival, about problem with double booking.
They offered a simple room with two single beds, with extension to sleeping barracks / dormitory in next room.
It fulfilled our needs of four beds to sleep, but with no quality feeling.
Especially since I paid for superior family room.
No discount, no nothing.

Room tip: Be sure to confirm room type and reservation ( b.c.o. double booking )

The hotel is only a couple of minutes drive from the center of Halden. We were at the hotel in the winter, and I belive it is very nice to stay here in the summertime.
We liked the room, it was spacious and nice. The room could have had a cabinet or somewhere else to put things on/in. But it had a nice bathroom.
The breakfast was really good. We have been at hotels with even more to choose from, but still it had both cold and hot dishes, different juices, and lots of different types of bread. Homemade stuff and also localy produced food. We enjoyed it very much. It seemed very quiet when we stayed there, and it did not seem to be a restaurant for dinner (except maybe for business- arrangements?) We went to another hotel for dinner.

I stayed here when it was a dormitory and what a change ! Everything is good here, beds are unbelievable good and breakfast is to die for
If you are in Halden and want to stay in an old building with great views this is the place

Looking sort of dull i\on trhe outside I was surprised about the modern and elegant interior.
Greeted by very friendly, attentive and helpfull desk attendant.
Really nice room on 3rd floor with view out to the fjord. Very elegant room with unique history tidbit from the history of the fortress (different story for each room).
Had a good nights sleep in the quiet room.
Very good breakfast in the morning. Super hotel experience!

Room tip: Third (or second) floor with fjord view.
