I'm not sure why but there really seems to be no good place in Bergen to spend the night. At nearly 200 USD a night, even for Norway, you would expect more. The Scandic in Haugesund, for example, is great. Scandic Bergen City is falling apart. Very old building and furniture and a weird smell in elevators and hallways. All... More

Bergen City Scandic hotel is a chain hotel right in the middle of the Bergen city which itself is a UNESCO's world heritage city. I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights - my first ever experience with any of the Scandic hotels - as part of my business travel and found this hotel to be offering a quiet decent,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It was quite easy to find. The hotel is split into two buildings, opposite to each other. We stayed in the newer building. We asked for a quiet room and they gave us one. The room was decent. We didn't really need a big room as we were out most of the time. The... More

Room was clean and all in all satisfactory, relatively small though. At night, there were a lot of drunk people singing and screaming all night. Windows cannot be fully closed. Elevators and corridors were very old and smelly. Location quite okay, about 10-15 minutes walk to the harbor. Breakfast was also okay and it was a nice surprise to find... More

Thank you for your review! Klostergarasjen is the biggest parking house in Bergen and is located only 350 m. from the hotel. I guess this is the garage they tried to advise you to use, but unfortunately the guiding was not good enought. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the pancakes and the Scandic breakfast buffet.

A nice location in the centre of Bergen. I stayed here for a little more than a week while working for a music festival in the city. I was working from early morning to late night every day, and just needed a bed, a place to work in my room and a breakfast. The reception staff was friendly and helpful.... More

Small rooms. Street noise all through the night. Reception has no clue about guiding guests around the city. Looking for a place to sleep after a hard day in the city, this isn't the place to be. Breakfast was above average. We saw mostly very old persons in the hotel.

Friendly front desk and bar staff, great breakfast, and nice room....I probably had one of the renovated rooms. No complaints at all. Had a great meal in the restaurant. Hotel is in a good location and walking distance to all of the sights. The hotel is also a great value and very competitively priced with other hotels in the area.... More

The hotel is in the center, so the location is great... we spent 3 nights and we loved it. The breakfast is very rich, the hotel clean and they provide hair dryer and iron plus iron board. I recommend it to everyone as it´s also good price for the city.

pros: The breakfast is good. That's it for the good. The hallways smell like wet horse. The carpeting is old and looks filthy. Our room was not clean, there was dust in the bathroom and the carpet was dirty. We stayed at cheaper hotels that were much cleaner. The front desk clerk was not friendly.

Damp hallways and small elevator. No air conditioning. Breakfast is not too bad. Location is OK. This said, admittedly Bergen lacks hotel rooms and it is expensive. But still, given a choice I would avoid.

Thank you for your review! We are sad to hear that you are not happy with your stay. Scandic has four more hotels in the city centre and one at the airport, so next time you travel to Bergen maybe one of our sister hotels will suit you better.
