  • Never reached destination :(

    by TrailBlazer27700 on 2019-08-07 02:05 am

    Information about how to get to "Historisk Hotell" Finse 1222 was lacking. A group of four friends had booked a "Rallarveg" pack through "Historic Hotels" and were looking forward for the trip. Little did we realice that the only way to get to the hotel was with a train. No one gave the information in the booking, the confirmation or by any other means. We had multiple expenced because of this, new lodging for one night, dinner etc. and our "Rallarveg" cycle tour could not be excecuted.

    Hi

    We're sorry you never got to Finse. When you read about the Rallarvegen on the Historic Hotels web-site it says:

    "This trip starts at Finse. To get to Finse you have to travel by train and the traveltime from Bergen is approx 2 1/2 hour. (From Oslo approx 4 1/2 hour)."

    Also on Google-maps it is clear that you cannot drive here.

    We can always try to give better information, and there is always room for improvement.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Finse 1222, and everything was wonderful: delicious food, friendly and professional staff, nice rooms, the view to the glacier(!). Unforgettable, and well worth the charge.?

  • Location, Location, Location!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our three days in Finse and our stay at Finse 1222. The meals were delicious and healthful. Our room was simple but perfectly comfortable and very quiet. As to the setting, for anyone who loves the out of doors, Finse is heaven - biking, hiking, or just sitting looking out at the spectacular scenery or watching the trains come and go. In mid-July the alpine flowers were in bloom everywhere.

    Hello Robert M,
    Thank you for your kind words!
    The hotel is old and a bit rough and we are doing our very best in keeping it at it's best.
    We are very happy hearing you enjoyed your stay here, that you explored the surroundings and that you enjoyed our food. Important with good food when you have been outside:-)

    Wishing you a nice summer forward.

  • Fabulous location with great food and excellent staff

    by AF_and_friends on 2019-07-21 08:31 am

    We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a group tour with Hvitserk. Whilst here we did a short afternoon hike up the mountain but also spend a full day doing a spectacular walk on the local Blue Ice glacier. We then cycled from the hotel down the Navvies Road to Flam.
    The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the food was top notch. The location and views were exceptional.
    Can't fault our stay here in any way - highly recommended.

  • Wonderful stay - beautiful location, great staff, spotty wifi, rooms can be warm in summer

    by happyviajero7 on 2019-07-20 06:35 am

    Overall, a wonderful stay. Stunning location - really something to see. This was also the hotel where the Star Wars actors stayed when they filmed the scenes on the snow planet. There are some pictures of the actors during the filming on the walls.

    The rooms can be a bit warm in the summer, As is often the case in Europe, no AC, so we are used to opening our windows. However, there are small pesky flies in the area. The staff said they are typically there for only 2 weeks or so. They said the flies do not bite, but are annoying. So we just cracked the window - it was not enough for one of us who likes a cool room.

    The wifi was spotty. (Tech talk here ) At first, I thought they just needed to restart their router - they were resistant and I think they were probably right - it is just spotty internet, not a router problem.

    When we were checking out, there was a lot of luggage in the lobby. Evidently, lots of Norwegians here that stay the night, leave their luggage with the desk and then bike down to Flam. The hotel evidently sends their luggage after them separately.

    Dining room is beautiful with large windows so everyone can enjoy the stunning views.

    I do not remember any lift, so I had to carry my luggage down a couple of flights of stairs to our room. I also remember lugging my luggage up a few steps to get into the hotel lobby when we arrived. It's located very close to the train station, so it was easy for us ( and we had a lot of luggage ) to pull everything to the hotel.

    Overall, we enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

    Thank you for your review on us, hapyviajero7:-)

    The temperatures up here normally require heaters. We might be lucky in July with around 20-25 degrees celcius - for a short period - periods we would see as a bonus:-)

    The Lakeflies are part of our surroundings and the nature up here at Finse. We are sorry you had to close the window and that it therefore got to warm during your sleep.

    Your observation is correct; we do not have an elevator. The hotel is from 1909 and an elevator is not possible to install as the construction of the building is today.

    We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, despite these disadvantages.
    Wishing you a good summer!
