What to do

In 1780 Kleivstua was a natural stop on the road between Christiania (Oslo) and Bergen, and through the years it became a well-known and popular tourist destination.

Today Kleivstua Hotel consists of 11 houses and a total of 43 rooms, with a capacity of 108 people. All rooms are named after fairytales written by well-known Norwegian folklorists - Asbjørnsen and Moe.


All our historic cabins have been built and restored according to the rules of art, where no two rooms are alike. If you like - feel free to ask for a house or room with a sauna!

Our location with a breathtaking view and unique atmosphere makes Kleivstua an ideal place for parties, weddings or special events.


Our focus are on tasty and freshly prepared food and beverages from local suppliers.

Our "Yellow Livingroom" is also available for dining and is located in the oldest part of the hotel. If desired - you can rent your own cabin and taste our delicious food in a separate dining room.
