The hotel is located at Forus (actually it is located in Stavanger neighbour county Sandnes) so it is close to major oil compaines like Statoil, Hydro, BP and so on. But it is also fairly easy to take a bus to get into Stavanger (it is about 12 km into town). It is also located close to one of Norway's biggest malls Kvadrat.
To keep the cost down there are not many extra facilities here. You will not find a water boiler to make tea or coffee in the room, there is no minibar in the room and there is not much of a wardrobe. I guess this is a hotel that you get if you just want a cheap stay or if your are just in this area to work.
They do have Smart cars for hire so you can get around in those...I really think these cars are cool. :-)
