I needed a place to stay while I was in Bergen, and i chose this "hotel" as it was cheap. I now realise I should not have. The room was old, heavily used, the stairway smelled like cigarettes. When i opened the window the entire room started reeking of marijuana. The walls are thin and the refridgirator very noisy. The... More

Stayed for one night in August 2014. Had a room with two twin beds that were quite comfortable. Room was clean and bright. Free WiFi. Excellent location, within close walking distance to all of the central sights in Bergen. Perfect for what we needed it for, which was a place to put our gear and lay our heads at night.... More

Comfortable place for couple of nights with good location. Free wifi, free coffee. My window was faced the church, so bells was heard quite loud. But you don't need a long sleep on vacation, don't you? :) 7 minutes to Brygge, 10 minutes to Fish market.

Completely something new to discover. The hotel is well situated and clean. the speciality is their eco awarness: towels are not changed each day and rooms are not cleaned daily. But who really need this on daily basis? cofee/tea available in the lobby through the day. Nice and to recomend.l

The lift only goes to the fourth floor...guess which one we were on. My 74 y/o sister was not too happy to climb the last flight with a heavy bag. Asked for a double room and received one with three beds....so we had a spare one to put our bags on. The shower ran HOT and COLD at different times... More

located at the heart of the city. Walking distance from all tourist attraction points. Facilities are bare minimum. Do not expect much. Since I stayed for one night, I could adjust. Not suitable for longer stay with family.

I was given a large double room at the back of the hotel which was nice and quiet. The room looked as if it had been recently refurbished and was very bright and cheerful. The only problem I had was on my last morning. Nobody was at reception when I left at 9am to travel to the airport so I... More

The hotel has an excellent location just across the cathedral in the center of the town. The room was clean and the beds comfortable - all at a very reasonable price for being Norway. We got good service from the receptionist. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant and doesn't serve breakfast but has vouchers to other hotels and cafes where... More

BEWARE of extending your stay. We booked our stay through bookings.com for two nights, and when we decided we wanted to stay in Bergen for a third night we asked at the front desk to extend our stay. The person at the front desk did not tell us we were being charged a different price when we booked to stay... More

After reading previous reviews, I was prepared for the worst. I was surprised to find a clean, modern room with plenty of space for one person, and a decent sized clean bathroom. For the price you pay, yes it's a lot for what you get, but this is pretty consistent in these parts of Norway. My room was on the... More
