Nice rooms, fairly spacious with decent bath rooms. In the morning, excellent breakfast until 10h00 with a good selection of food. Great location in theater district, lots of pubs and restaurants around. Walking distance to shopping area and historic sector named Bryggen. Note that some rooms are in a separate building across the street. Friendly staff. Just ask nicely and... More

Having in the back of my mind that in Norway all will be strict and according to the policies and rules - doing exactly what they strictly have to do, and nothing more, I've been pleasantly surprised to see that the people at the reception have gone way beyond their duty to be nice, friendly and helpful! It started all... More

Let me start by saying I would have given this hotel 2 1/2 stars, but that is not an option and I round up. What would you like to hear first, the good news or the bad news? I'll do the pros first because it's a shorter list. Pros: The hotel has a good location. My room was a nice... More

There are poor elements of this hotel. Very poor. But then you remember where you are and somehow you rate this place as average. Poor: reception enthusiasm; room is in another building with weird entrance system - my card didnot work everytime and no living person to open the door; you should wind a bit your corridors; rooms are basic...

Thank you for your review! We do understand that it may be inconvenient with a hotel room located on the other side of the street, but this is the only way we are able to offer such a high number of rooms in the city centre. Unfortunately travelling in Norway and Bergen can be expensive, but luckily most of our... More

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

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.

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.
