Originally a postal inn accommodating travelers following the mail route, Stalheim Hotel was built in 1750
with humble amenities and only 20 beds. With centuries of experience, renovation, and expansion,
Stalheim Hotel today is a family-run business with guest rooms with expansive panoramic views of
the breathtaking fjord Valley.

Road E16 was closed, we arrived late at night in order to have run a long detour.
Stalheim Hotel stands on a hill of the fjord mountain. The view was so nice, particularly
in the morning sun. The facility is rather old. However, a room was comfortable to stay.
A breakfast was good. That the bartender was giving priority to the other person without checking
the order was the only drawback. The majority of hotel guests were a cruise group.

Walaker Hotel

The building as it stands today was built in 1883, using material from a wooden church built in Solvorn in about 1600.

The Walaker Hotel is located at beside the fjord in the idyllic village of Solvorn in Luster lies Walaker Hotel.
The hotel, which has been inherited from generation to generation, is a charming family hotel and an attraction
in itself, located in the middle of the world`s best tourist destination, according to National Geographic.
The hotel has been owned by the same family since 1690 and is the oldest family-run hotel in Norway,
with over 370 years of history.

A historic hotel with a well-maintained facility
We almost missed the road to turn to the way to Sllvon on Route 55, where the Walaker Hotel stands.
All staff members are friendly and behaved with a confidence. A guest room in is quiet and clean.
Breakfast was tasty and with a variety. This is a historic hotel worth to stay.

An old historic lodge surrounding by mountains

The rooms are individually designed and include a private bathroom. Many guest rooms have canopy beds.
The buildings date back to the 1700s. We surprised a staffof the hotel carried our very heavy luggage easily
to the third floor by hand, when we checked in.
This old inn offers traditional Norwegian dinner. This seems to be very popular forresidents; however,
the taste was not our favorite. I recommend that a dinnerplan should be optional.

Grande Fjord Hotel

The hotel recommended staying Geiranger
A view from the guest room facing to the fjord is excellent. We can observe Ocean-going cruise ships
entering to and leaving from Gairanger. This hotel is a little far from the town center, where there are
many shops and the boarding station of a pleasure boat.

A small hotel in the heart of Romsdal region

This hotel is known as the first tourist hotel in Norway, opened in 1860. All facilities are renewed and modern.
A breakfast was simple; however, the hotel provides a lunch food in the morning, that is helpful.

Sunndalsfjord Cottages Fredsvik

(L) A kitchen and dinning space (M) The north side exterior (R) Twilight of the fjord at Fredsvik

There are two cottages. One is located on the lake; the other is inside.
When a guest brings the groceries in the cottage and spends here quietly for weeks,
this would be the very best accommodation in the fjord country.

Thon Hotel Kiristiansund

(L) A twin bedroom (R) Heinsagata Bridge and a cruise ship, seen from a guest room

A buffet-type breakfast

(L) The hotel has its own seashore. (M) The main entrance to the Hotel: In this hotel, smoking is strictly prohibited.

The hotel is beautifully situated in the Innlandet district, with a magnificent view over the strait
to Kristiansund city centre and has its own seashore.

A clean white hotel with own seashore
This hotel stands in the Innlandet district. This is a relatively new and nice-looking accommodation.
We have to drive or walk to the central downtown area for shopping and dinning. One thing we
disappointed was a heating of a guest room. It might be adequate for people lived in the northern country.
However, for us, it was so low that we had to stand cold at night.

Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel

(L) A twin-bedroom (M) Centre-hall (R) The hotel is located between Kjopmannsgata road and Nidelven River.
A buffet-type breakfast is served in the dinning room.

The Radisson Blu Royal Garden Hotel, Trondheim boasts an exceptional design and a location next
to the Nidelven River. The central atrium and verdant garden sit under a glass roof, letting
the stunning natural light in order to fill the public space.

An excellent city hotel which is faced to Nidelven River.
The hotel is exceptionally modern, and we can see the houses of old town from the hotel room.
It is very conveniently located for sightseeing the city. This might be the best Radisson Blu in Norway.
The hotel fee was very reasonable and breakfast was good. As otherbig cities, a parking place is congested.
