    Ventilation in room is poor. When open door to room I got the stuffed air sensation. Slept with open window, that helped. However night between Friday and Saturday lots of noise from people outside restaurant.

    Location between Lillehammer and Rena is perfect för Birken participants. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is great!

    Fine for a one-night stopover passing through the area.

    • Stayed 1 night

    Bathroom was very small and shabby, as well as having one of those awful designs with the shower half-door that ensures the entire bathroom floor gets wet. Bathroom amenities were much less than we'd just had at the Scandic in Stockholm. We hoped to have dinner at the restaurant, but there was only a buffet available and no one appeared to offer any service or information in the bar area, so we just left. Overall, the vibe of the hotel was just a little strange--the pool was closed for no apparent reason and the bottom floors appear to have been an old blast shelter. It seems to cater to large tour groups.

    Breakfast was very good; gym had nice equipment though it was pretty cramped; location was easy to get to right off the highway; good location for a stopover.

    There was no possibilities of adjusting the temperature in the room, so the air was a bit hot and stuffy.

    All staff were very friendly and exceeded our expectations. They catered very well for families, and offered juice boxes and ice cream without extra charges at the dinner buffet. There was also a treasure hunt play room for the kids (which we did not have time to try). The kids loved the pool, even though the pool was not heated.

    The bathroom was quite small especially the area around W.C! The receptionist on arrival did not go out of her way to be helpful. The a la carte restaurant was not open the night of our arrival so we were directed towards a buffet, which was fairly "ordinary". The second night we ate elshere. In the buffet room it was quite difficult to get knives and forks - we had to ask - and teaspoons were even more difficult to find both evening and breakfasts. The first smile from staff was when we checked out!!

    Room and common areas appeared to have been recently refurbished.

    The fact that the temperature in my room was 22 degrees, with the sun beating in all afternoon and only a small window to open to get any air was ridiculous. I went to the front desk (exceptionally unfriendly, inattentive, and unprofessional staff on all accounts) to ask if my AC was working and their reply was, "This hotel doesn't have AC, so all the rooms are hot and uncomfortable right now. Just wait until evening when you can open the window. Very few hotels in Norway have AC". Appalling....how ignorant do they think their guests are? I know for a fact this is not true at all, as I'm a local!!

    The staff in the restaurant are fantastic. They are professional, attentive, and extremely friendly. The breakfast buffet is outstanding, but the dinner buffet is not worth the price.

    • Leisure trip
    • Couple

    One of the main reasons for booking this hotel was the swimming pool, which was closed. I realize that pools need to be closed for maintenance, but it should be stated as such. Although the room was a bit larger than the other 2 Scandic hotels we stayed in this week, the bathroom, especially the shower was teeny tiny, the bathroom door itself was just frosted glass with the the shower door being clear glass. It is an older hotel and in many ways looks it. This is not the place to stay if you want to see the sights around Hamar, if you do not have a car, as it is only 5 km away from Downtown, but it is truly up hill at least 4 of those km, with the last km or so being down hill.
