Now here's something you don't get to do every day – sleep in a disused 1960s power station. Designed by architect Geir Grung as part of the Røldal-Suldal hydropower plant, this brutalist building has been reinvented as a boutique hotel, with clean, minimal design echoing the stark, concrete structure. Rooms are stylish and most overlook Suldalsvatnet Lake.
There's an excellent New Nordic restaurant, as well as a sauna and an outdoor heated pool in summer. The hotel is near the village of Nesflaten, about 28km south of Røldal.
Built as a part of the Hydro Røldal-Suldal power station designed by Norwegian architect Geir Grung, this design hotel is located in the village of Nesflaten. It offers original 1960s design, free Wi-Fi and rooms with views over Lake Suldalsvatnet. Hardangervidda National Park is a 45-minute drive away. All guest rooms at Energihotellet have a work desk and panoramic views of the lake and Suldal Mountains. Some offer a seating area with floor to ceiling windows. The in-house restaurant serves daily specials using local ingredients. In summer, guests can enjoy the vast, scenic views from Energihotellet’s terrace. The hotel has a sauna, and an outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts are a short walk away. The surrounding region offers activities such as skiing, fishing and hiking. The Trolltunga rock is a 1,5-hour drive away. Free private parking spaces are found next to Energihotellet.
