You don't go here to spend the day on the hotel room - it is the surroundings with all it's outdoor activities and atmosphere that make the place. I have been here many times (either staying at the hotel or Finsehytta). This time however I have to admit to be a little disappointed... staying in room 002 in the basement...

I'm not just a person who likes giving bad reviews (you can see all my previous reviews of other places) but our stay at the finse1222 was not good at all. I must say though (the only good thing) the majority of the staff were really nice which made it hard on checkout to be mad about my stay. Firstly...

Great location for both the view and for a range of activities. Friendly service, nice food. Reachable only by train, by foot or bike the hotel has a really nostalgic setting. The architecture is rather mixed, some good - some not so good.

Room very fine for all family, 4 of us, clean and appropriate, Dinner and breakfast equally good, service very friendly. No cars! Very nice setting on a plateau of snow (in April). We managed to borrow skis and boots and went out for a superb cross country skiing. We are alpine skiers, so we fell down 4 to 5 times,...

My brother and I celebrated our 40th birthday at Finse 1222 from Friday to Sunday. The celebration was very successfully thanks to a very professional and solution-oriented team at Finse1222. Big thanks to Heidi, Gordo and all the others who helped contribute to this was very pleasant weekend.

We had an excellent one night stay at Finse, en route to Bergen by train. The staff were attentive and helpful, the meals very good. The room was basic and comfortable. The views are incredible and we enjoyed cross country skiing whilst we were there. A magical place to stay.

What a magical place, so much history here, from the English nobility settlements, via the polar explorers and WWII bombings (now the dance hall), all the way to the Star Wars connection. We spent two days and one night here and would go back immediately. Take some time to go for a walk on the frozen lake to the glacier....

Finse is a remote stop on the Bergen to Oslo raliway line. It is basically a station, a hotel and a Youth Hostel. We had lunch at the hotel and couldn't have been made more welcome. The soup was Norwegian in character (or so we were told) and was delicious and served with fresh bread. The views from the hotel...

Read about Finse in an article. We decided to experience Bergen/Finse/Oslo train journey. Train very easy to book from UK also very good value Bergen to Finse was amazing. Got off at Finse and walked 50yards to hotel warm and friendly greeting. Dumped our bags and went for a walk through the snow. Huskies outside hotel enhanced the whole experience....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Finse 1222 was built in 1909 as part of the Bergen Railway and has since been the gateway to some of Norway's most beautiful and accessible mountain areas. The Hallingskarvet National Park borders to Finse and across the lake Finsevann the mighty Hardangerjokulen glacier rises. Finse 1222 is a family owned hotel run by young and serviceminded people. Allthough the premises are old and some places worn by more than 100 years of service, focus is on providing a hospitable and keen service as well as very good food. The hotel offers bike rental and ski rental. Rooms are basic - we recommend the outdoors! ... more   less
