Recently stayed at Smarthotel Forus, and it was a good experience. The staff here is friendly, the cleanliness of the hotel is top-notch, and the attention to detail in maintaining a tidy environment is commendable. I appreciated the peaceful atmosphere, which allowed for a quiet and restful night's sleep and making the stay hassle-free. As for breakfast, it was more than satisfactory – an ideal way to start the day.

Small rooms, so not for big family's. Best for single or couples.. Nice and clean.. The breakfast is, like at all hotels over norway, best in Europe.👍 The shopping center 'Kvadrat' is the second largest shopping center in Norway. And it's just 10-15 minutes from the hotel .
