Lovely large hotel in scenic location; spacious, nicely furnished public spaces. Even the non-view rooms look out onto a lovely hillside; and unlike most Norwegian hotels, they even have bar soap, shampoo, and floor towels. Of course, such a large hotel is sustained mainly by bus tours, so their patrons will make up more than 90% of your fellow guests... More

Geiranger is absolutely beautiful, and the Hotel Union is the perfect place to take it all in. The facilities were beautiful, and the pool was a perfect place to relax. The room was amazing, we had a balcony overlooking the fjord, which was worth the extra money. My one regret was that we only stayed there one night, it was... More

We stayed in Geiranger for only two nights and filled our days with a trip on the gorge and journey along the Troll road. It was late in the season, all of the Cruise ships had left and everything was very quiet. The weather was mild and cool and perfect for sightseeing. We loved the hotel. Our room had a... More

Charming and old-world, the Hotel Union sits at the edge of the Geiranger Fjord. A waterfall spills genially down the mountain next to the hotel, ending in the water below. A 1918 red Buick Phaeton touring car sits in the hotel lobby, a tribute to the many years in which cars were used to take tourists from cruise ships into... More

So longas you have a room with a fjord view, don't let anyone try to persuade you that there is any better place to stay in Geiranger. Bordering on opulent, the hotel enjoys a magnificent location on a hill with commanding views of the fjord and surrounding mountains. It even has its own waterfall (well almost) that thunders past nearby... More
