Welcome to «the Vatican»
One of Risør's oldest and most beautiful houses

Photo of the outside of the house

Buvikveien 26, locally called "the Vatican", is a listed house built in the 1700s as a holiday house to one of Risør's wealthiest businessmen.

The building was painstakingly restored by the hotel and today houses four fine suites with exquisitely charming décor and all modern amenities.

Here you can really dream of living as a Risør native during the age of sail!

Buvika is 900m away from reception, a lovely walk and there are good bikes included. There is private parking at the house.

Guests can have breakfast delivered to the suite.

suites in Storgata

A guesthouse since the early 20th century, today it houses the hotel's largest and most luxurious suites.

Photo of the outside of the house

Built in 1864 after a great fire destroyed much of the town, for many years there was a hotel/guest house on the 2nd and 3rd floors, first run by Søstrene Gislesen, and then Henny Paulsen.

Famed shipowner I.M. Skaugen also had his first shipping office here.

The whole block was completely restored by the hotel and today there is a reception and breakfast room on the 1st floor and two great suites on the floors above.

Behind the reception there is the hotel's parking and the Consulate and the Guesthouse Suite by the garden and swimming pool.

Eight suites around a charming courtyard right in the historic Risør center

Photo of the outside of the house

Tucked away in a charming and quiet courtyard in the heart of Risør's historic centre, there are eight of our suites.

All suites have a maritime theme, with from two to five beds. In addition, the Sagafjord suite has room for 16 around the dining table – perfect for a party or meeting.

Most buildings are from 1864, originally two residential buildings with horse stables and haylofts. Plus the Convoy Suite, which is Risør's first electricity transformer built in 1900.

The restoration work here has been awarded serveral national prizes.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is Check-in/Check-out?
Check-in is from 15:00 at the reception, Storgata 5. It may be possible to check-in at 14:00, just check with the reception before arrival. In summer, especially in July, check-in is usually at 16.00 - that's because it takes quite a long time to wash a suite, and our cleaning staff must have enough time if there are many new arrivals.

Check-out is 11:00 in July, and 12:00 the rest of the year. It is often possible to get a late check-out - again just check with us if it is possible.

We come very late, is it possible to check in?
It is always possible to check in! We do not have a 24-hour front desk but there is always one of us nearby, if you arrive after the reception is closed simply arrange check-in before arrival or call when you take off the E18 towards Risør.
Dogs and pets

It is not allowed to bring a dog or other animals to the hotel, unless it is a guide dog and then only by appointment. Sorry!
We know that it is not popular among you with four-legged friends, but we have some sensitive antiques, furniture and fabrics in the suites, and have unfortunately experienced too many times that things are destroyed by pets or that it has been troublesome for other guests with barking, etc.

Parking
