Essentially a UK style Travelodge, situated right next to the town hospital, about 20 minutes brisk walk from the centre of Stavanger. It is well served by public transport. (N.B. UK Travelodges are somewhat different from their namesake in North America) This basic hotel was clean and quiet. My single room was simply furnished but entirely functional and overlooked the...

I'm a repeat guest at the St Svithun - if I can't get a hotel in the very centre of Stavanger - I prefer to stay here. As you would expect -the place is spotless The food in the restaurant is good and a bit more varied than traditional hotels There is a fridge in the room (I don't think...

As all hotels were fully booked for the week I had to stay in Stavanger I found this hotel. Did not have a clue that it was part of a hospital that is on the left of the building. Rooms are quite sober and not worth the USD 266,00 I have to pay per night. Next door is a distribution...

My husband had a sudden business trip to Stavanger and the room at St Svithuns really seemed to be the last hotel room in the city. Having read the reviews I was slightly concerned, but it really wasn't anywhere near as bad as some reviewers have suggested. Firstly, no there isn't room service - this is a basic hotel and...

If you're the kind of person who loves being at hospitals and like the steril and clean look of hospital rooms then this is the hotel for you. However, if you want a real hotel; look elsewhere. In short: + The beds were OK, but nothing special. + Very clean. - The minibar was empty. - The TV in the...

The “hostel” is located inside the University hospital, 20 minutes walking from the city centre, 30 minutes from the boat terminal; our double room was modern, clean and spacious with private bath, towels, tv and minibar. Above reasons allow me to say that I get a 4 stars service at the same rate of a Norway hostel: I paid 2265.75...

Hi All, this hotel is real disappointing for us. It is just beside the hospital and these hotel rooms are shared with the patient rooms. So we got a feeling that we are in a hospital rather than for a holiday. It is very good for the hospital and for the patients. Nice facilities for the patients and their relatives....

This hospital hotel was not as clean as it should be. Our room had toilet paper stuck to the ceiling. Very simple and sterile. It would be fine if you where staying there to be close to the hospital, but that is it. Unfriendly staff in the kiosk next to the reception

We stayed at this hotel for five days during the international chamber music festival. It is 2km from the city center. The bus costs $7/per, one way and takes about five minutes. Open for about 4 years, there are some signs this is a hospital. There are newborns with their parents at breakfast, people in bathrobes smoking outside the door...

St. Svithun is a hospital hotel but also a part of the hosteling international youth hostels. The rooms are basic but a lot better than most rooms in youth hostels. You can either walk for about 20 minutes to get to the city center or you can catch the bus from right outside the hospital. The breakfast is vert good,...
