Spent a day here on a business seminar. The upstair seminar rooms have large windows and a view of the street, while the downstairs ones have no windows or view at all. Ventilation and lighting is good, though, so you don't get the basement feel you might expect. The food and staff is what gives this 3 star hotel a... More

It was comfortable and offers delicious breakfast buffet. Interesting that they offers a full set of buffet breakfast just like dinner's. My kids loved their breakfast, and offered a variety of menus. I am going back.

So far this is one of our better hotel experience in Bergen, although I wouldn't call it fantastic. But first of all, a disclaimer: we stayed at the hotel during Christmas and Bergen is pretty dead during that period. Many hotels are closed (this one had closed a few floors for the holiday), most of the restaurants are closed, the... More

Hotel was a bit small on the inside, I would have loved a slightly bigger fridge to keep food/beverages in it. Bed was really comfortable as I stayed there over 20 nights. Room was on a small side, compared to average standard rooms in American hotels this room was the size of some bathrooms. Bathroom was great, heated floor was... More

If you ask for the appropriate room you will get a great view of the city and mountains. Rooms are very comfortable, modern and well equipped. The breakfast alone is a nice way to experience Norwegian food and dainties.

We was watching Nordic championship swimming competition on AdO arena. Hotel was good location, very close on shops. Room was quite small, but ofcourse you can sleep there. Very quiet hotel and super good breakfast.

This was one of the most pleasant hotel stays I've had. One, the hotel is right in the city centre (and not far from the university - for me, this was perfect). One of the highlights of the hotel is unquestionably its breakfast buffet - in fact, they've won a prize for it. Everything super fresh, a wide range of... More

Having stayed in a few places in Bergen, this was the best stay. Reception staff on arrival were good, the hotel clean and tidy and the bedroom smart. Although the bedroom was small, it was fine, and the location meant that it was quiet too. Wifi worked well, the bathroom had both soap and shampoo (the heated bathroom floor was... More
