Nice hotel, not too big. Very helpful staff, who answered all our questions. Evening buffet is an excellent service! Carpet in bedroom is the only drawback. Close to the center of Skien. Ask for a room with view of the canal.

I stayed here for 2 days whilst on business. Room was clean & warm. Wi Fi good and the meals great values for money. Staff very helpful. Good advice about the buses to the airport. I booked this though Hotels.com so there was no bother with the bill as it was paid for up-front.

The hotel is central in town. It offers limited parking. if you arrive early, you may get a free one for your car, but don't count on it. Otherwise there is a parking lot about 100 meters from the hotel. They offer an evening meal free of charge with different menu. Sometimes very good, other times rather sparse. Friendly staff all over.If not for the parking situation, I would have given them 4 of 5.

Good Location near the water and restaurants. Very welcoming staff. WIFI did not work most of the time. The soundproofing between rooms are appalling as I heard someone coughing from next door room. It was as loud as if he/she was in my room.

I must say up front that I thought the hotel was quite good but my wife did not like it much. So, it scores an average. Modern style hotel, clean and nicely furnished. Particularly liked the large framed black and white photos hanging on the walls. We are members of the Nordic Choice which includes the Clarion hotels. We may have been allocated a better room because of this as it was on the 5th floor with a good view over the river. The room was a reasonably good size with a window that we could open at night (I cannot stand air conditioing at night). The bathroom was an OK size but..... My wife hated the shower because she claimed it was impossible to shower properly and not spray water over the vanity bench and over most of the bathroom floor. My comment is that the sink was badly cracked. It had been repaired from the underside so did not leak but did not look very nice. Housekeeping was less than efficient with dirty crockery from the day before left in the room and a couple of other minor issues. Nothing serious but irritating. When booking, we were unaware that a buffet middag was included in the price. We enjoyed a taco supper. The breakfast was good with a large selection of fruit cereal, and cooked food. You fry your own eggs or eat boiled or scrambled egg. Good location for Skien central shopping area. Parking was on the very quiet street at the side of the hotel or at the back of the hotel. If these spots are full (only about 20 spaces) then it is parking for a fee in an open area about 200 yards from the hotel.
