It is a pleasure to warmly welcome you to Smarthotel Forus. The hotel is Norway's first and only street art hotel. Our goal is to stand out from the crowd by creating something extra. Two local street artists have had the freedom to express themselves throughout the hotel, creating their own artworks in the lobby, corridors, stairwells, and breakfast area. The Forus hotel is located in Sandnes, central to a dynamic business area, and only a 10-minute drive to Stavanger city center. Free parking is available both outside the hotel and in the garage. The Kvadrat shopping center is the nearest neighbor, and it's only 10 km to Stavanger Airport. The hotel is in the heart of several of Rogaland's best activity offerings, including just 14 minutes from Kongeparken and 1 hour to Preikestolen and Lysebotn.
