The First Marin is a centrally located hotel just a few blocks from the city center. It is a "classic" hotel in that it has wood floor and antique furniture. Unfortunately, every piece of furniture and the floor was badly marred and scratched. The bathroom was also quite "antique". When we went to the room we saw that our 3rd... More

Our room was very spacious with large windows looking out over the harbor, water, and mountains. The hotel is located right in the heart of everything a tourist wants to see in Bergen from the historic waterfront wharf, to the funicular to shopping to restaurants to much much more. Downstairs is a great Micro brew bar called Una offering local... More

Our tour group stayed here the first night. Convenient location to sights. About 1 block from the historic wharf. Easy walk to Floibanen station to ride funicular up Mt. Floyen. Friendly staff. Small fitness room in the basement. We opened the windows to cool the room. Nice chairs for reading.

The hotel is very well located in Bryggen, and has pretty good breakfasts. Unfortunately we booked for a family suite and arrived on a hot weekend to find the main bedroom had no windows and no aircon. The room with windows would only allow window to open a small amount. We complained but were'nt offered a suitable alternative and were... More

This hotel at Bergen, Norway is very centralised. Next to it is an Indian Restuarant. The famous Fish market is just few steps away. Value for money. Service good. Money changers nearby. Shops restaurants all at walking distance. Breakfast at the hotel was quite satisfying.

The good- the location of the hotel is perfect. It is only a few steps from the funicular and the Bryggen Wharf. The family room was perfect for our family of four, spacious and clean. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty with a good variety to choose from. The bad- No air conditioning meant open windows and it is loud outside... More

I would not classify this hotel as luxury in any sense of the word. No wifi, loud music playing until early morning, no safe, the decor is beyond dated and the internet pictures in my view are misleading.

We stayed one night during a tour. This is a great location - right around the corner from the Hanseatic museum, historic area, Cruise boat dock and castle. Our room was fine - some of the others felt theirs were cramped. The breakfast buffet was good and had many selections.

Just around the corner from the main waterfront street, so an excellent location. Also just a few minutes walk to the funicular which gives excellent views. The rooms are a good size for European hotels. WiFi worked OK.That where the good news ends. Old, very tired rooms, we could feel the wire coming through on our mattress, very uncomfortable. Hot...
