First, apologies for the length of this review. It reflects our high regard for the hotel and town. We chose the Balestrand Hotell for our 6 day stay after researching all of the accommodations in Balestrand. We grew to love it more every day we...More

The service was exceptional. From original booking advice to luggage pick-up service to giving 3 rooms next to each other with balcony view, all of us enjoyed Balestrand, the cute little town, and the Balestrand Hotel. Unni Unni-Marie advised me months in advance about Norway...More

I can only comment on the Norway part. Given your projected itinerary, you do not need a car. We rented one for a few days from Balestrand but that's only because we were also staying at a hostel further north. The owners of... More

Response from balestrandhotel... K | Property representative |
Hi, you need to look at the norled web site. There is only the Norled express boat from Flam to Balestrand for these two dates. It is a daily 15.30 departure from Flam due into Balestrand at 16.55. Recommended to make... More
