I've stayed there for work a few times now, rooms are decent sized. My room's never had anything stocked in the mini-bar, but has coffee/tea and a kettle. I really enjoy their breakfast, huge selection of all types of breakfast food and a breakfast chef.

I spent two nights here and had a great stay. The Norwegian style breakfast which is included in the room price is very good with a wide variety of fresh ingredients. Sorry, I didn't try the fish for breakfast. The rooms are small but clean and modern. I have found most hotels in Norway to have small rooms and two... More

This hotel has very recently been re-branded from Rica Bakklandet to Scandic Bakklandet. Clean comfortable hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Well positioned near to centre of town. Good value for money, Would be happy to stay again. The Vaernes Ekspressen bus (which accepts credit cards) provides rapid transport from the airport and stops directly across the street from...

Placed very central and a new hotel, but with very poor service. I booked a room for one week and asked before arrival about a quiet superior room. The room I got must have been one of the most noisiest rooms- to the main road. I asked for another room, and I got a new room but the receptionists were... More

During my first stay early this year, I remember asking for a hand soap and I was told by the embarrassed cleaner who I assume was gasping because she was going around looking for soap that she is very sorry because they ran out of it and offered me a small container of shower gel that's supposed to be for...

Stayed here for two nights with my son and a friend. We had the rooms facing the restaurant so a bit noisy when they start with breakfast in the morning but my son is up early anyways so no problem there for me atleast. My friends room was very nice and clean, she had no complaints(except the noise). I however... More

After spending a few nights on the boat from Bergen to Trondheim, my girlfriend and I spent a few days at this hotel. The boat arrived early in the morning but I arranged an early check in (at 9am!) via email when on the boat. When we arrived at the hotel the check in staff recognised us by name- which... More

Have stayed here a couple of times, and it's a nice hotel close to the city center. Rooms are clean and spacious, and the breakfast is good. The airport express bus also stops just outside the door (if you pick the right bus from the airport). All-in-all a good experience staying in this hotel.

This was a lovely hotel. The room was fairly large with a beautiful, clean, updated bathroom. The most amazing thing about this hotel was the wonderful view of the water. We opened the doors in our room watched the boats go under the bridge while we enjoyed coffee each morning. The breakfast was delicious with many options and fresh squeezed... More
