We stayed three nights at the byparken hotel over a long Easter weekend in Bergen. They provided a cot for our 15 month old daughter on request and near reception have a small area of toys (duplo, building blocks and a train set) which was helpful in tiring her out in the evenings. The standard of the room was about... More

I spent a night here on business. Nice and central to the restaurants and harbour. My room was small and looked into the central courtyard so nothing special, and I was surprised how soft the bed was, although I did have a good nights sleep. The hotel itself is nothing special, but friendly staff and an awesome breakfast give this... More

Stayed here last week, we had our room upgraded and had a lovely view over bergen. It is near the city centre and train station which is handy for early departures. Staff were friendly and the breakfast...wow. Smoked fish, cheeses, juice shots, breads, you name it. Only criticism was that some of the lower rooms seemed a little shabby and... More

They upgraded our room to Superior and gave us the best view from our room overlooking the mountainous Bergen city, as well as the pond and park just around the corner. It is excellent view. Location is awesome. Close to everywhere you need to visit. Breakfast selection is pretty good.

My companion and I stayed at the hotel prior to our trip on the Hurtigruten. When we arrived in Bergen, my companion discovered that his luggage had been lost. Both Fredrick and Lene at the front desk went above and beyond their duties and made several calls to SAS and helped tracked the missing suitcase on the internet. The luggage... More

We stayed here for 1 night prior to boarding the Hurtigruten. Online reviews suggested this was the best place to stay, however both rooms we booked were small and had uncomfortable beds. The shower was also very small, however manageable. Location is very near the Museums, and is a 10ish minute walk from the Train station. Ther Hurtigruten port was... More

Great location, right in the middle of Bergen. The regular room is small, with a comfortable double bed and a small desk with chair, and a chair in the corner. Perfect for sleeping, not for having all your friends over. Overall the hotel is clean and stylish.

Stayed at this hotel before taking our Hurtigruten cruise. Its a short 10 min walk from the railway station. The location is great! Within walking distance to all the major attractions, including the Floien. They also upgraded us for free to the pent house room, which was pretty cool.

My boyfriend and I have just returned from a long weekend in beautiful Bergen. We have a wonderful relaxing stay despite the weather. The Scandic Byparken was a ray of sunshine. The hotel is extremely good value for money in a good location and we booked budget rooms at a very good price. There was nothing wrong with the room... More
