I am surprised by some of the negative comments based on the breakfasts! It astounds me that with the amount of choice given people still moan. I have never been to Norway before and can't catergorically say that this is the best breakfast in the city but i'd like to see a hotel have a damn good try to make... More

The location of the hotel is good and the price OK (for Norway). Other than that, I see no reason to stay there. The room (standard) is somewhere between small, very small and tiny. 2 very narrow single beds with dubious sleeping quality. The working desk was a joke (sizewise) and you could not watch TV from the chair, no... More

The 17-18th this February I had once Again the pleasure of staying at the Scandic Byparken. I was as the other times a very pleasant stay with two nights of good sleep in the comfortable beds in the well climatized and quiet rooms. The breakfast is extraordinary and makes you just want to sit and enjoy the morning in the... More

Please be warned. They don't cook the bacon and the chef thinks this is the way it should be!!! If you get a single room, it is the smalles in town. Apart from the location, it is not worht staying unless they change the breakfast and you get a decent room.

A decent business hotel for short stays. OK rooms, but the overall standard is nothing special Friendly and helpful staff. Minibar empty, and really poor TV-reception. Breakfast was OK, but the eating area was disturbed by people going to and from the elevators.

Rooms. Well, you get what you pay for. I booked the lowest end single room and got a clean, well furnished, very small room with an interior courtyard view. I was worried that the room would feel too small for my three night stay, so I asked for a double room in my same price category. It made a big... More

This hotel is a 5 min walk from the main walking street and maybe 10 min from the fish dock, but central to most everything. Small double room with desk and unfilled mini fridge. Kinda tight between desk and bed. Got a back room with no noise from the busy street outside, which is preferable to not having a view... More

The room is very small and the view out the window the worst ever (a narrow shaft between wings), but the place is cozy, warm, and conveniently-located in downtown Bergen. A block or so from the Airport Bus stop at Festplassen and a short walk to Bryggen and the Fishmarket. The heated floor in the spotless little bathroom is a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was good. There were three separate beds for us - very comfortable- which was fine as we weren't staying very long. bathroom also fine- very clean but smallish. We were a little disappointed with the actual allocation of room as we had booked early and paid up front so we expected something... More
