      Good hotel for single business traveller, clean and good social area, but rooms are definitely too small for double, and no twin beds!

      shopping centre was right next door. Motorway into town was easily accessed

      Central to business locations for Oil / Gas / Energy. Number 9 and Number 2 bus (all close to hotel), give good links to Sandnes and Stavanger centres.

      It is located on a central area near to Stavanger and the airport, but also close to important places such as Preikestolen and Sverd I Fjell.

      There were not enough staff to fulfil all the costumers necessities, for example, we didn't get our rooms cleaned. The front desk girl had to arrange herself the extra bed I requested and she sent it through the elevator for me to pick it up and install it myself!

      Convenience - close to place of work - a 5 minute walk

      The carpet in the room was very dirty.

      Excellent if you just need a place to sleep.. And it was only 5km to the airport.

      The room was very small

      I was low cost, and I got exactly what I needed. I got a very good bed with excellent (soft and heavy) pillows and blankets, it was clean rooms, small bathrooms with a shower (with a nice water flow), but I did not come there for the size of the bathroom, so small was good since it had everything I needed. The room was small, but same thing, I did not go there to stay inside the room, I only needed a place to sleep over, have a shower and have a meal in the morning, and for that it was perfect. The breakfast was simple (meaning that it was not like a fancy hotel breakfast) but the most basic things where there, and what mattered to me was that the things that where there, actually had quality (instead of the opposite, large selection with low quality, I prefer small selection of quality). The reception area had sofas, games, tv, a place to buy extras, perfect :-)

      Noting in special. I just want to appeal to the hotel and say that focus on low cost, simple, easy but what you do must be with high quality. And market it as exactly that. Perfect for business travelers, back packing, economy traveling, lots of families with kids etc. One remark was wifi, this you need to provide to all rooms and you must find a way to make it free for all guests. The reason is that you have a lot of pc and smartphone travelers, and wifi is not something you shall earn money on, it is what gives the establishment a strong impression. And you cannot provide poor quality, it must be excellent. You must market this (once it is in place). Then you will easily become like Norwegian does in the air, growing, profitable, and slowly killing sas :-)

      This hotel is as simple as you can get it and as cheap as you can get it in Norway. It is a place to sleep, not a place to spend any time.

      This is value for money for a couple of nights stay. The rooms are so small you have to climb over each other to get into bed. However, it is still the cheapest way to have a good nights sleep in Stavanger.
