Excellent place with charm at the center of the city conveniently located. The personnel very professional and nice always eager to help. They offer the Wonderland bed that is interesting to try for a good night sleep.

Had an excellent one week stay in one of the superior rooms. The room is equipped with everything you would expect from a superior room and is kept very tidy. I'm staying in the Radisson Blu Royal now, but I would recommend the First Marin to everyone going to Bergen

The hotel is a just average, defintely not better than that. Great location in the city center. Boring breakfast with no variation at all. The staff was friendly but did not care more than necessary .

Hotel is located at best location in Bergen, its 5-10 mins walk to most tourist locations and there are lot of options to eat nearby. To reach hotel you will need to take express bus from Airport and get down at last stop, hotel is just 3-5 mins walk from stop. Our room was on 6th floor but it was... More

This hotel is neat from the first sight. It looks as it was made with passion which it tries to transfer on you. Unique furniture, classic wooden floor, marbles in the bathroom, fantastic bed, fast internet, and friendly staff makes this hotel an interesting oportunity for staying overnight. Either you are looking for party, travel, business or else.

This hotel charges far more than it should for its standard. Everything in the room from the 80's and you can tell. The chairs are covered in white stains, the toilet seat is wooden, the beds are like camping beds, mouldy spots in bathroom and the room in general had a nasty smell. Aircon non existent so it was quite... More

First Hotel Marin is about a 10- 15mins walk from the Train station. Room is clean and spacious. Location is good, its within walking distance to the famous UNESCO world cultural heritage site - Bryggen, Floibanen etc. We took the flybussen airport express to the airport and the pickup point is just a 5mins walk from our hotel.
