They have parking, just not as convenient as we would have liked. The space we found was at the back of the hotel, but you can't enter the hotel from the rear for security reasons. It would seem to be worthwhile for them to look into a back door that can be opened by room key.
There appeared to be several rooms with views, but not ours. It was a shame, as the hotel fronts on the river
Other than that, this was the perfect hotel for our needs. It was easy to find, convenient to the Telemark Canal, and easy to find our way out of town when we left.
The lobby is modern, open, airy and clean, and the desk clerk greeted us immediately. Throughout our stay, she and her co-workers were pleasant, professional and helpful.
Our room was a clean, quiet and pleasant double with the surprise of a bathtub! We didn't especially want a tub, but it was the first we had seen in a Norwegian hotel.
The hotel offers a complementary "light" hot and cold evening buffet. With a number of traditional Norwegian offerings, it was anything but light, and we didn't need to bother getting anything else for dinner.
The breakfast buffet was similarly varied Though not the biggest we had seen on our trip, it was plenty and good.
This is probably the best bet for lodging in Skien, especially if you plan on a Telemark Canal cruise, which is about a five minute walk away.
