    - The hotel is AWFUL !! the price is too high for a hotel that looks like abandoned motels. - Too old and the facilities are below average. - Dirty toilet that needs deep cleaning with FLASH. I don't recommend it at all, Skien needs a new hotel.

    The receptionist was nice, she did her best to accommodate my request before checking in, but the hotel building and facilities didn't help her to make my stay acceptable.

    The weather was unusually hot and the room was extremely hot which made it difficult to sleep. However, a fan was already placed in the room and that helped. I also acknowledge the fact that the building is old and it is probably very difficult to install air conditioners at this point.

    The fruit tray and small box with chocolate - very nice touch and very much appreciated. The size of the room was great as was the view.

    The cleaning was superficial with dusty surfaces in the room (desk, bed-side-tables, etc) and dirty spots on the bathroom walls. From this level of facility I expect more.

    The availability of the staff to acommodate a slightly earlier check in was very important to me and it was processed swiftly through email on the same morning. Wonderful!!! The staff was generally available and welcoming.

    I found the bathroom in the room not particularly clean and the shower water was cold but the room itself was clean and had a lovely view.

    The reception staff both in the evening and morning were most helpful after I'd lost my wallet, printed my boarding pass for me and even arranged a breakfast for me to take with me as i left early in the morning. Also easily accessible from the football stadium (15 minute walk) and the train station (10 minute walk)

    Cannot fault the hotel in any way but be warned, Norway is very expensive though the people are very friendly and nordic scenery is outstanding.

    Lovely historic building set on edge of town close to town centre. Very friendly staff. Extensive buffet breakfast. Enjoyed a nice Queen room overlooking square and river view.

    Parking was a little tight and lighting in the bedrooms was a little annoying (all or nothing).

    Very soft beds, checking was quick, our key card did not work the second day but it was replaced efficiently. Nice bar area and breakfast had a good selection - even some vegan options which was good. Evening meal was also worth it if you don't feel like going out into the town (can recommend little india ;-) ) Handy parking with possibility for charging for those with electric cars.

    Beaten-up rooms and corridors that you wouldn't find in a cheap youth hostel (talkng from experience). They lie with room descriptions. Between two different options I chose one specifically called "room with a big bed". Ended up In a narrow (135max) and unconfortable bed, was told nothing else was available. Next morning reception recognized I didn't get what I paid but wouldn't even provide a partial refund, neither complaint forms.

    breakfast is good
