Very nice rooms as we hate carpet. Wood floors - modern furnishings, slick. If we had to say there was one negative it would be that it is not as central as we'd like. However would stay here again. Over all, Lovely rooms- very comfy bed - very clean and nice staff.

This hotel was a 10 minute walk from the train station. The room was small and simple, but adequate for a short stay. Wi-fi was decent. Breakfast was good. Rica is situated close to just about everything to do in Bergen: shopping tourist sites, etc. This is a good hotel to stay at if you're interested in a clean, safe... More

In the right location to explore Bergen, and close to the train station and downtown. Parking is a real problem, since it is a long block away from the hotel, and not associated with the hotel. One way streets make getting your vehicle unloaded, and then parked somewhat difficult-for us especially so since it was pouring rain when we arrived,... More

This hotel is located in the heart of Bergen, just a few minutes from train station and harbor. The room is typical small same as other European hotels. But it is clean, cozy with everything you need. The breakfast buffet is super, from Crepe, cured and smoke salmon, to variety of fruits. The free coffee machine and tea in the... More

A group of us recently spent three nights at this hotel. The location was great, right across the street from an airport shuttle stop and close to nice places to eat. The room was fine -- scandanavian decor, comfortable beds and a small bathroom. We had a corner unit just above the stoplight and because the weather was warm, we... More

The hotel is located right in the city center (but, as Bergen is a small town, everything is almost necessarily close to everything else). Room was adequate and breakfast was ok. Good selection of different items, but nothing really outstanding. The lobby and breakfast area do happen to get that food odor, which is not very pleasant (particularly when you... More

The hotel is fairly average. Clean, efficient, well located. My room was small with spartan decor, but the bed was comfortable. The breakfast is great, especially if you like fish. There are so many choices of fish, meat, bread at the breakfast buffet. One small complaint was there into much in the way of fresh fruit. I liked the location... More

The rooms are adequate with windows that open for some fresh air. My room overlooked the street and the noise was disturbing. The staff were extremely helpful throughout my stay.

Not many places in Norway have air conditioning, as it's usually not needed (although climate change issues may force a reconsideration of that...). However, it was beastly HOT during our stay in normally-rainy Bergen this past July. Our first night was just under the roof on the 6th floor (with black ceramic shingles) with little movement of air and little... More

We chose this hotel for location and reading reviews. We requested a quiet part of the hotel since some reviews talked about noise. Had a fabulous room in the roof area with a pivot window in the slant side of the room. Left it open all day for nice fresh air but had to keep it closed at night to... More
