Hotellets historie

The history of Villa Terminus began as early as 1769, when the Zander Kaaes Foundation was established by Alexander "Zander" Kaaes from Bergen. The foundation's "home", Villa Terminus, was designed by Joachim Reichborn. The house was originally a home for the elderly in need, and the building at the time had a richly designed ark in rococo style. Over the years, the house has been redesigned and has been home to refugees, the elderly and students. The building was considered to be so important to the city that it was listed as protected in 1927.

The villa has been owned by Zander Kaae's foundation for 250 years, but was bought in 2012 by Grand Hotel Terminus with the ambition to give the building new life. In 2016, Villa Terminus was ready, and the building was restored with care and respect for history. The boutique hotel is in baroque style and has handpicked world-class interior design.
