Guest reviews

    The personnel was very serviceminded and helpful. The bar was nice with competent bartenders. Location was great with short distances to restaurants and shopping.

    The room was very worn down and the cleaning was not good at all. There was a lot of noice from the street as the windows could not be properly closed. The bed may have been ok in the 80', but is not up to standards at all. Garbage from shampoo etc, was not cleaned and the bed was not made every day. No elevator to the floor I stayed on.

  • Single

    The location was ideal, close to the main port and within walking distance from everything interesting.

    First of all, the hotel has no staff whatsoever. You must go next door to Victoria hotel to check in and to get the key. Also, note that is has no lift so if they give you a room on the fourth floor, you are out of luck. The rooms are very basic, something that you would get somewhere lese for $30 (this is Norway after all). Also, as check out time, they tried to charge my more than the agreed rate from, so bring the printout and start the arguing (and do not let them win).

  • Single

    A very good place to stay, reasonable price , very good breakfast included. Good location in down town Stavanger. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Basic no frills rooms , comfortable bed, but with TV also.

  • Group of friends

    a way better than I expected. Warm soup & bread provided from Tuesday to Thursday till 8:00 PM. also the location is very good, close to harbor.

  • Group of friends

    The breakfast, the proximity to city centre/facilities

    The bathroom; no ventilation. The lift

  • Single

    The staff were very helpful after a mix up in the online booking. They also provide free soup and bread on weekdays which will assuage any hunger pangs without the need to go into town

  • Single

    Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. There is tea and coffee available all day in the breakfast room. Location is fantastic, about 5 minutes walk to the city centre.

    rooms are very standard, could have been a bit cleaner. there is a night club opposite the hotel, which is incredibly loud until around 3am.

  • Family with children

    Close to the harbour.Nice breakfast.

    Very poor facilities on top of a bar and noisy terrace. Smelly staircase and bathroom.Not suitable for families with children.

  • Single

    Price compared to the rest of Stavanger

    Very surly chap at the reception desk in Victorial Hotel in the evening

  • Single

    Good location. Good breakfast at the nearby situated hotel (Victoria?)

    Very simple standard compared to price. Tv didn`t work properly. Almost no electric light in the room-dark. No proper chair.

  • Single

    Location is everything.

    Room standard. Ok, but bathroom and interior can be upgraded.

  • Single

    In international traveller terms, the Skansen is not a Hotel, it is a hostel. There are no dedicated staff, which is why I rated staff as poor. The staff at the Victoria Hotel are excellent, as is the Victoria Hotel itself. As a Hotel, the Skansen will disappoint everyone who stays there. As a Hostel it perfoms its functions reasonably, but I cannot compare with other Hostels as I do not usually stay in them. The marketing of the Skansen is misleading, and I suspect it is expensive by comparison with other Hostels. The Vistoria should review its links with the Skansen, which can only detract from its reputation.

  • Single

    Excellent location, excellent breakfast. Friendly staff.

    No cabinet, no shelves to unpack your baggage. At least not in the room I booked. One very small table.

  • Older travelers


    the stairs and noisy saturday night after midnight

  • Single

    If it should be cheap it is a good decicion.
