The walls were dirty with nail holes where something hung at one time and taken down but the holes never patched or walls painted. No one on the front desk at night so if there is an emergency you will have to call the police but you will have to go down stairs to let them in because the front... More

A basic hotel very close to the city centre. The price is affordable and the place is very clean. It is not permanently staffed, so after getting the key you are pretty much on your own, especially after 11 pm, when the reception closes, but that was not an issue as we were mostly focused on seeing the city and...

Stayed one night in August, payed more at this hotel than my hotels in Oslo so I was expecting similar or better quality. Was very disappointed at my arrival. The room had some very beautiful windows and view on the street which is always nice but also made it very noisy. There is no ac in this hotel so I... More

I felt like in Bergen people have allergy for breakfasts as we couldn't a place to have it at 8-9 am. The hotel however was fine, quiet, clean but a bit cold even in July, so we asked to turn on the heater. Isn't the coziest ever, very small double room for 2 persons. But the price is also low,...

Norway is not exactly a country where prices are low, and Bergen is a rather tough city to make affordable travel arrangements. The Basic Hotel Victoria is really basic, but offers "reasonable prices in the context", rooms are quiet and clean, even on the front along a busy street, with shower and toilets. It is quite close from the city... More

The hotel was very clean. Couldn't ask for more. There was no breakfast available at the hotel, but that was no problem for me, as I prefer to find a small café for that, and there were plenty of those near the hotel. The hotel is only 5 minutes walk from the station, very convenient if you arrive on the... More

As the hotel name already advice; it is a basic hotel with a fare rate considering Norway prices; the room is clean and the bed are very good. The staff is helpfull and always good mude. I take out one star because the boxing shower doesn't seal the water and we made a mass after a shower.

This place was fine. Comfortable beds, handy fridge and kettle, clean bathroom, cute balcony, ample curtains to keep out the light. One night we endured noise from an arguing couple next door, but that's not the hotel's fault! Staff at the reception were very helpful and answered our many questions, printed out documents for us, provided extra blankets upon request,... More

Thought the place looked cute when I checked in. It's 1:30 AM and I'm awake because there's a bar on the ground floor. It's not just loud, my walls are vibrating. There are people in the street making noise too. My eyes are tearing because there is smoke wafting up in the room. They are not available, the only phone... More

Reception wasn't exactly welcoming, but easy to check-in. Lift was very old, I was a bit scared! Was given a nice room, a bit small, and noisy as on the road side. Curtains also let in a lot of light - annoying when it barely gets dark here in summer! Fridge was good, and kettle, although I had to work... More
