Only book if you can't afford something better
Posted Aug 29, 2012
Bed comfortable but didn't smell fresh. Narrow shelf-like desk on wall, badly designed chair. Extremely noisy location, pop concert on street all evening, rowdy people, and badly behaved neighbouring room having drunk party with bass equipment & stench of alcohol in corridor. Not restful. Side rooms have ugly view of metallic building with pipes, but on 5th floor can see glimpse of Fjord. Breakfast bag on door at 06.30 of fairly fresh sandwich, juice which becomes warm by the time taken into room, & fruit, multiple rooms had breakfast stolen one morning. Tea-making facilities, good flat screen TV with just a few channels, but NO phone in room so can't call reception each time have a problem, or in an emergency like when fire alarm went off on last night. Housekeeping appalling - previous guest's rubbish left in bathroom for my arrival, & came back to a bag of tied up rubbish placd on the desk one day, mugs not always cleaned, desk never wiped, floor never vacuumed. Reception's responses to complaints fairly ineffectual. Bathroom otherwise clean, shower very hot but bathroom door dangerously made of frosted glass didn't open more than 90 degrees so was very easy to walk into, & have to remember step up into bathroom. Would NOT book again. Might suit someone on low budget who does not care about noise, cleanliness, or going up and downstairs to complain.
