Wilhelmsen House Guide


Wilhelmsen House is located in the venerable student home. The house was once given as a gift by Halfdan and Ragnhild Wilhelmsen in 1926, and was used for accommodation and education of nurses in Tønsberg.

The student home became an important prerequisite for the expansion, operation and development of the Hospital. For a while, the plan was to demolish the building in favor of parking spaces, which ignited the commitment of many in Tønsberg.

Wilhelmsen House Apartments became reality in 2015 with 49 new rooms.We believe it is still a good place to stay away from home.

Wilhelmsen House has 49 rooms, ranging from studio apartments to family rooms. All our rooms are decorated in a classic style, fully furnished and wifi. You can stay for a day, or a year.

Enviroment and sustainability

Our generation has high expectations when it comes to protecting the environment. We contribute to reducing our footprint by throwing less, using less energy, and making sure goods to and from the hotel are as short as possible.

Did you know that 1/3 of all food is thrown away? Food waste is one of the biggest environmental challenges we face. By being able to offer fresh food while avoiding food waste, we are collaborating with Too Good to Go. Together we make sure that every single pastry comes to joy.

When you stay with us, we clean the room every 5th day for long-term rentals. We do this to save consumption and to reduce our footprint in the environment. Please let us know if you want your room cleaned more often.
