The young lady at the reception really had a happy disposition, and the dining table and the fridge right at the room's entrance certainly helped to make us feel at home. Having known Birkebeineren as a youth hostel, I enjoyed the old pictures on the walls. Great breakfast!
Nothing serious, but the bed was a bit too soft. And it would be nicer if, at unfolding the sofa, the bed would be ready for the kids. (We got there pretty late and tired).
Clean apartment, Nice view, Not too far from center.
Wi-Fi connection was not working at all, even after complaining to the front desk. Walking with your suitcases from the Lillehammer train station in the snow and ice up to the 'mountainy' area where the apartment is situated was not so comfortable. They could have mentioned it on the website.
Family apartment was good
Large room with plenty of space for luggage, clean, easy to carry luggage in and out. The hotel was built with prefabricated modules to be used during the Winter Olympic games in 1994.
The guestbed for the kids was in a poor shape, and the staff did not compensate for the fact that our 16 year old son did not sleep much the night we stayed there. We hope that the hotel will fix the guestbed, and that future customers will be able to sleep better.. The receptionist told us that they had ordered new mattresses, but we told them that it was the bed itself it was something wrong with. The breakfast buffet is not impressive, but fair enough.
The Birkebeineren is a complex which was used for accommodation for Olympic athletes. The room was really a suite with two rooms which included a pull out to make an extra bed if needed. We had a fridge, two TVs and nice bathroom facilities. The breakfast was very good and parking was free and near by. The staff were great ambassadors for Norway.
The only negative aspect of the stay was that we had some difficulty finding the hotel and Lillehammer is hard to get around in. Parking is expensive in town.
Friendly personal. Sauna was warmed up just for us without extra fee.
The noise from neighboring rooms is esily heard.
Simple, clean, large rooms, very friendly staff, good breakfast
The proximity to ski resrts and town.
The sofa bed.
Poor tv facilities: only Norwegian stations available and none international staions such as BBC-World; CNN etc.
lack of eating facilities especially when there so very few eating places in the town over Christmas holidays
My husband and I traveled through Norway in July 2012. The location of the Birkebeineren was very good. We walked to town for dinner. The staff was helpful and the buffet breakfast was very good. Our room was comfortable. We recommend this hotel. Mississauga (near Toronto), Canada
The location and the comfort of the chalets. We would have appreciated an electric kettle and toaster however.
Nice, comfortable, and convient
The price is a little excessive when using bookings.com
The staffs are nice and very kind.
