  • Flam

    by english226 on 2019-09-21 04:24 am

    Great older hotel with amazing view of the fjord. Request a room with a balcony - it's well worth it! The town is tiny, but there are shops, places to eat, and kayak rentals within a minute walk from the hotel.

  • Beautiful location, but hotel doesn't live up to its potential

    We stayed in a historic room, booked as part of the 'Norway in a nutshell'. There isn't much choice in Flam, so this is probably the best option if you are OK with the price - which seems very expensive even for Norway. It's an interesting place. The room was OK though nothing special. We enjoyed the buffet dinner, though it is true that some selections looked a bit unappetising - the fish was nice though. Breakfast was good.

  • Best Hotel in Flam

    Although this was the most expensive reservation on our Norwegian circuit, it was well worth it. The Fretheim is a very comfortable hotel, located just minutes from the train and fjord cruises. The rooms were a decent size and we had the unexpected bonus of balconies. Very clean and a good breakfast selection. We didn't eat there in the evening but did have an enjoyable drink sitting in the pleasant bar/reception area. Walking around the Flam harbour area, the choice of accommodation is limited and the Fretheim Hotel stands out as "the obvious choice".

  • Far from perfect

    by Mike F on 2019-09-12 08:24 am

    The hotel has a prime position close to the famous Flam railway and harbour. First impressions were good - efficient and friendly check in
    We had an " historic" room which means it has an old fashioned look with few modern amenities. It's perfectly fine for a hotel to want to create an historical atmosphere but not ok to use this as an excuse not to have even a TV in the room. Many hotels mask the TV in an wooden cabinet.
    It was of no consequence to us but many people will expect in room entertainment .
    We also found a toe nail(!) in the bathroom - not ours. This is not acceptable.
    I've written a separate review of the hotel restaurant - which was excellent

  • Magnificent and classic

    by 619dano on 2019-09-08 01:41 pm

    Fretheim hotel is Fl?m's old classic hotel from the end of the 19th century. Its been expanded several times, but the oldest part remains. The hotel is just next to the famous Fl?m railway, and the station is reached within a minute.

    My room was clean and comfortable. Bed was lovely as was the view over the fjord. Staff is exceptional friendly and welcoming. Most of them speak English (but not Norwegian) since they have put in a lot of afford in finding the best staff for the hotel (and this Norwegian village have less than 350 inhabitants).

    The dinner in the restaurant was amazing. The breakfast was also good, but nothing to write home about.

    The hotel is expensive, but worth the money if you decide to visit Fl?m.
