My wife and I had a break in Flam on our tour in Vestland. Heimly Pensjonat seemed to be a good choise for that purpose. In fact it was a god deal compared to the centrally placed Hotels. We had booked our one night stay included a three course dinner. Compared to the prices at the hotels, we got our dinner at a bargain price. The personnel gave us splendid service, were friendly and very helpful. For us the dinner was very good and tasty. We even managed to empty our plates, which we normally only do when ordering just a two course dinner. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, our beds comfortable though a little narrower than we are used to. Heimly is situated a short kilometre from the train station and from the quay of our boat for the next day's onward travel. With each our suitcases on wheels, we made that easily by foot. There was only a quite big TV in the common room. With a TV in our room, we would have considered the place to be very good.…
The view of the fjord from this pension is lovely; unfortunately, my room faced the back and the trash receptacles. The rooms are small and functional, nothing fancy. The food is likewise acceptable, but not spectacular. Some issues getting the room cleaned; they seem to be short-staffed. A good budget choice, but make sure you get a room with a fjord view.
Location was perfect for train traveling since it was only a 15 min walk from the station along the fjord. This was a good kick off destination for our wk long kayak trip. There were many hikers that used the hotel as a starting or ending destination. The place was simple, clean, and food great.
This is such a charming little place. It is a bit pricey however considering the room is average and the bathroom is small. But if you do get a room that faces the fjord it is absolutely wonderful to view and wake up in the morning to. What I did like is that this place is an environment that you can meet and greet fellow travelers. They have a social common room and some seating outside. You also have access to complementary tea and coffee. Food service is quite phenomenal ! I’m not sure who the server was but she is so friendly and very attentive- I give her a 10/10 and she deserves praise for what she does. To the person who ran the front desk- thanks for giving me a great recommendation in flam ! I would come again !
We were so glad we stopped over in beautiful Flam, and the Heimly Pensjonat was the perfect place to stay. Its location is far enough over from the shops to get a great view of the fjord. There are nice common spaces indoors and out. The rooms are comfortable and bright. Dinner and breakfast are included and we enjoyed both. With plenty of nice walking trails around we were wishing we booked two nights.
