Until 2008 this was a famous, though run-of-the-mill, hotel in the centre of Geilo. Then came investment and a transforming top-to-bottom refurbishment. Today it is a fashionable, chic hotel with interior design flourishes which would not be out of place in Courcheval 1850 and Aspen. On the walls there are even original prints by Edvard Munch - he's the Norwegian artist who created famous painting 'The Scream' in 1893.

The lounge bar '777' and the restaurant 'No. 11' are the places to be see in Geilo, whereas the 'Spiseret Café' is a bakery where you'd be more likely to catch us hanging out before a day on the slopes. Rooms are bright, practical and have a loose tartan theme, similar to the Vestlia Hotel which falls under the same ownership. And, like in it's sister-hotel, the spa and fitness centre have been lavished upon to create an adult-haven, though the large swimming pool is for use by all the family.

All told - a really stylish hotel, which still manages to be totally friendly.

In the centre of town - it’s a shuttle bus to either ski mountain. It’s on the main road…but once inside you don’t notice, with all the views over towards the ski slopes. Convenient for the few restaurants and bars in Geilo.
