PROS: Friendly staff, Clean, good price for value (in Norway's scale). CONS: Basic rooms, expensive dinner (although they did have big portions). Bottom line: This is a great place to spend the night in order to see the naerofjord, the staff was very helpful rooms were exactly what we needed for the night, clean, hot showers. There was plenty of... More

Travelers can stop by for a night in the Norway in a Nutshell trip and trust me its one of the better experiences. Its so scenic all around with the shop and the reception and the breakfast area adjoining the place where you stay. The cruise for the Norway in a Nutshell trip departs just overlooking the breakfast and eating... More

The hotel is located at a great spot surrounded by natural beauty, towering mountains, pristine fjord, hanging waterfalls, floating clouds. In the morning and evening, when tourists from nearby Flam were away, the place was so quiet and breathtaking. A lot of influence of Viking culture shown in room, restaurants, and surroundings. Wifi wasn't strong enough to reach hotel room.

Leaving Oslo for Bergen by train we wanted to add a trip on the Flam railway as well as a fjord cruise. As that would take us to Gudvangen by about 5pm we considered that would be a good place to spend the night. And it was. The location with the steep- sided mountains and waterfalls you can see from... More

We did not actually stay at Gudvangen Fjordtell, but visited Gudvangen for a few hours. With the large windows we could see that the hotel rooms look like fun with their Viking themed rooms and looked clean. The small town itself would be a great place to base yourself with all the attractions around.

Fjord boat next morning to Flam and then trains back to Oslo. Gudvangen is beautiful. Read the reviews. It is not the Ritz. But if... More
