I stayed at the Bergen First Marin for three nights in March 2014. This hotel has a fantastic location, one street away from the busy harbour area but just far enough away to be reasonably quiet. The room was average and contained what one expects: a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, all that. My only quibble would be the absence of... More

Stayed two nights at The First Marin Bergen at the end of a two week trip around Norway. I prebooked through Booking.com and paid up front. We were two couples booked into two twin bedded rooms. Our room was large with a short hallway into the main body of the room. This hallway was useful for bags, coats etc. A... More

Perfect place to stay for the weekend! View over "bryggen" and only 1 minute to og for the "Fløibanen". Only minutes to walk until you're at the main street, "Torgalmenningen" with lots of shops, pubs and restaurants. We really appreciated the free coffe on the hotel. The hotel was clean and the breakfast was small, but OK. We didn't find... More

Stayed here for the weekend 21th to 23rd March. Comfortable room, nice staff and great location in the city center, close to Bryggen. Our next stay at this hotel is already planned in May to celebrate the Norwegian national day in Bergen.

Stayed here for a week from 20th to 27th March. The Hotel is 100metres from the harbour and the Bryggen (the oldest part of Bergen), and about 200metres from Bergen centre. Our room was comfortable and clean, had adequate tea making facilities and free Wi Fi. The staff were very helpful and all could speak good English (far better than... More

I've visited this hotel several times during the years, and it is my only options when I visit Bergen. This time I had a fabulous suite on the 7th floor ( nr #702 Bryggesuiten). This is the smallest from a total of three penthouse suites. It was now over 2 years since my last visit in this hotel, and I... More

Me and my partner we stayed in First Hotel Marina for a few nights, and we were amazed. Helpful and nice staff, clean room with mini bar. Morning with superb breakfast. We also loved the location- right next to the historic Bryggen, many restaurants around, harbour (with trips to the fjords) and fish market! We will stay there on our... More

Firstly, I need to address some of the previous reviews for this hotel who have criticised the staff and the decor. The staff here could not have been more helpful, from helping us with transport plans to restaurant recomendations, even calling in help for the restaurant recomendations, even calling in "expert" assistance when it became clear that what we were...

Central location with a lot of different restaurants close by. Nice, modern, clean rooms and helpful staff. Relaxing breakfast facilities with everything you need for a fresh start. I will stay there on my next trip to Bergen for sure.
