We booked this for Christmas week after reading some reviews on TripAdvisor and were glad we hadn't been put off by the negative comments. The staff were really helpful from start to finish, advising and helping us to organise different things before we arrived. The apartment was clean, well equipped and a great place to come back to after a...

We were not sure upon booking but wow were we pleased we did. We stayed in a chalet and thought the facilities were brilliant. As Brits to cost of anything in Norway was huge but this accommodation was reasonable. The breakfast was a highlight and everyone in our party made sure we took advantage of the generous and good quality...

Since much of what we wanted to see was in the Olympic Park, this place was ideally situated. Realizing that there are other things in Lillehammer; our focus was the park, Maihaugen and the downtown. The Birkebeineren is about a five minute drive from either of the latter two. The price is surprisingly low by Norway standards - Abut mid-range...

Our room was renovated with a modern feel although the apartments and restaurant have obviously been there for a while. They were comfortable and clean. Breakfast was basic and the service was adequate. It feels a little like a hostel but rooms are self contained. Wifi worked well and a kettle was provided. It is on the road leading up...

We have stayed for 2 nights at Birkebeineren, the staff was nice and helpful, the room was large with heated bath floor, 2 TVs, excellent free WIFI in the room ( which usually works only in the lobby at many other hotels), comfortable beds and more. The hotel is perfectly located walking distance to Lillehamer winter Olympic arena, and near...

We've used Birkebeineren a few times for internal meetings, both on over-night arrangements and single-day events. Rooms and equipment are good, the staff is pleasant and lunch is good. I have no problems recommending them for groups up to 35-40.

We decided to stay here at short notice not having been to Norway before. Six adults stayed for 3 nights in one of the apartments which were clean, warm and comfortable. We took the breakfast option in the hotel and there was sufficient choice to not start the day hungry. The staff at the hotel were helpful and happy to...

We stayed at the Brikebeineren Hotel while vacationing in Sweden. The location is great for the town. The room was very clean and of good size. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was generous and well presented..Over all a very good overnight stay . We were not there during the winter sports season so can not comment on that aspect...

This isn't a bad place - it's just not a great place either. The atmosphere is distinctly "hostel" type - but for that, it's great. The reception was cool (the lady must have had a very bad day), but the guy the next morning was very friendly. The room was very big but hardly furnished (the old sofa was probably...

Nice location, not hard to find near the ski jump in Lillhammer. Stora Torget area just a short walk, maybe a kilometer, down the hill. Lots of hiking very near by. Apartments are in good condition and have lots of space. Internet service is weak at best, and sometimes not available. Staff is very nice and they try hard to...

“We found the Clarion, in downtown Lillehammer to have free breakfast, waffles in the afternoon and dinner. Closer to downtown and much nicer amenities. It did cost more, but we did not have to go out for meals and this saved us a lot of money.”
