The hotel is a little on the pricey side for what you get but luckily for me, I was upgraded (at no cost) from a standard room to a junior suite (on a high floor) on account of my late check in (9pm) and the hotel being full. So my review is based on this larger room which featured a... More

Clean and OK room,without any view (against backyard),but quiet.Good beds and everything worked properly. Excellent breakfast, with all kind of choice and very tasty. We thought the location was central and short distance to everything.

We came to Bergen as part of a fact finding mission (Norwegian fish farming) and stayed here for 2 nights. the hotel itself is centrally located and great for getting around and visiting the little artisan shops and restaurants. The rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is fantastic and is a necessity before exploring the... More

The Scandic Byparken was the sixth Scandinavian hotel I stayed at in three weeks and the second of the Scandic brand. I felt it was probably the least value-for-money on this trip. This may just be due to there not being as much competition in relatively small Bergen (nightly rate here of AUD 245 vs AUD 196 at my Oslo... More

Starting with the lobby it looks more as if you've entered an outdated office building. Colors are bright and cheery but not warm or comfortable environment. The room we stayed in was SMALL. The double bed was against the wall so to get out I had to climb over my husband or crawl to the end of the bed and... More

This hotel feels like an ibis hotel for triple the price. The front desk seems renovated, the rooms aren't. Rooms are very tiny and outdated. The bathroom wasn't clean enough as there were hairs all over the shower. Also just 1 small towel and not enough shower gel. The best thing is the speedy free WiFiand the breakfast. Best to... More

The best breakfast I have ever had in a hotel. Old, but rooms and lobby are newly decorated/renovated. The twin room is pretty small, but still room for everything. Hallways and door keys show that the hotel is old. Great location in walking distance to town and close to the airport bus.

Had a nice stay at this hotel a weekend in June. Breakfast was lovely and rooms quiet, nice and clean! location is absolutely perfect, just a few minutes walk from Torgalmenningen and the Fishmarket. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Due to full hotel I got an upgade to higher category room. Room was clean but the bathroom flooded with water while showering because the floor drain was at the highest point of the floor. Also tv was no HD, and double bed was two single beds next to each other (I'm not a big fan of the gap in... More

We hoped for an early check in but knew it was not guaranteed. The people in our room checked out at 11a and we still could bit get in until 210p as promised. Oh well, we tried. Family room is small and narrow but very clean, comfy beds and heated floor in the bathroom. Great shower, no view, but the... More
