The hotel clerk is very unkind. I stayed for 4 days. There are not hair dryer in room. So I asked bring a hair dryer on the first day. But they bring a broken hair dryer on the next day!!! And I asked change for it many times. But they have been utterly deaf to my requests. They ignored every... More

The location couldn't be better. Everything is in walking distance. So sightseeing is made easy. The rooms are clean and pleasant. I can find no negatives to report. I would highly recommend. Very nice lobby too.

Hotels in Norway, as with everything else, is notoriously expensive and it seems that there is not enough competition and too much demand in Bergen to force hoteliers to up their game - they are complacent! That's not to say that this is a bad hotel, but it could be better. Stayed here for 4 nights recently whilst seeing the... More

The shower placed in the bath tub was very slippery and dangerous. Be careful! The room was large and confortable. No air conditioning. There was a TV but only Norwegian channels were available. The breakfast was very various and abundant but a bit crowded and the food wasn't always replaced promptly. The toaster didn't work well and was poor in... More

Great location for all key tourist sites and transport options. Staff very accommodating to have our room ready upon early arrival. Quality and cleanliness of room could not be faulted. All in all, an excellent start to our holiday.

We stayed for one night at this well located hotel. We booked at the last minute as the reviews for the Raddison Blu Norge put us off as most reviews condemned this hotel where we had booked originally. The staff at the First Hotel Marin were helpful, welcoming and efficient. The breakfast was good and the room was comfortable. I... More

Great location to the harbour, Bryggen and restaurants. Floyen funicular just around the corner. Helpful at reception in hotel for guideance to places however no trip booking at hotel so everything via tourist information centre. Hotel average. No alarm clock needed you automatically wake up to bacon cooking at 6.30am. That is without the window open!! Not what you need... More

Checked into the First Hotel Marin on the first day of our week vacation in Norway. We booked a family room for our family of 4. It was very large, clean, but very basic. Just fine but nothing special. 4 red armchairs (seen better days) and a table. Front room overlooked the street, 2nd bedroom had no windows. Between the... More

When visiting Bergen the First Hotel Marin has a great location, is very comfortable and gives a first class service. Having experienced both breakfast and evening meal we can recommend both without reservation.

The rooms in this hotel are enormous!! Lovely large windows overlooking the rooftops of Bergen, from our room! Spotlessly clean in rooms and in public spaces. Breakfast was good, but basic, in a lovely room. Cons: If you are a smoker, you will have to go outside the front door to do so, and there is NO place to sit.... More
