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

After being greeted by a friend receptionist, we headed up to our 5th floor room. The elevator doesn't go to the 5th floor so you must walk up a flight of stairs from the 4th. The hallway smelled of urine and the signage on the wall was damaged & run down looking. Our room was set up with a cot... More

Short walk to the fish market and tourist information centre. Our room was clean with a TV, kettle and small fridge. Our room was located on the 1st floor and was facing the cathedral. One plus point was that the room was lined with windows, all of which can be opened wide thus it was breezy and cooling at night.... More

The hotel was located in a great location. The room was clean and acceptable. However, you have two choices, one a room that may be quiet (not sure) but looks at a wall of another building, or two, a room that looks out to the street but is very noisy. We did realize until we were leaving that in the... More

The hotel location is fantastic as it is less than 10 minutes walk to the fish market and to the world heritage site of Bryggen. Also just 10 minutes to the bus stop to/from the Bergen airport or bus station and train station. It is diagonally opposite the old 12th century cathedral in the old town. I was lucky to... More

The hotel is a low budget. The room is very simple and basic. It's ok for one night or for backpackers style. Location very good though, near the railway station and Fish Market. We stayed there just for 01 night and it was clean and comfortable. Wi fi was good as well.

As the name suggests this was a very basic hotel. The staff seem to be all students hidden in a room off to the side of reception and most of the time they don't seem to be there. Our room was clean and beds very comfortable, however we very facing the street, which was noisy at night ( even with... More
