Be aware that you must request a room with cooling ability. Hotel employees ensured me I could cool my room off, only for maintenance to ultimately inform me that 50% of the rooms (one side of the building) do not have thermostats that work. If you like sleeping in a warm room it is okay. But I suggest requesting fjord side room. Hotel manager was very helpful to find a good room after previous disappointing stay. The bar music is very loud and will keep you up at night, so be weary if you have early Saturday mornings (stay below the 17th floor). Do not expect front desk to answer if you call, you have to go downstairs in person to resolve issues. Other than that, location is good and everything else is fine.

Our superior room is quite large and the view is fantastic. Breakfast is pretty good, but not the best we had in Norway. Cold waffles, a dissapointingly small cheese selection and no herbal teas (90% are black tea) but cappuccino and latte macchiato are lovely. The lobby is understaffed. There is a small convenience store within the building which is a plus cause there's no minibar in the room.
