Bergen is a picturesque spot but it rains there more than Manchester, so it is especially handy to have an umbrella in the room, even if it gets destroyed by the winds that company the precipitation!

The lobby area is a bit worn down, but is nice enough. I stayed in a standard double room wich was quite large with a good size working desk and a small... More

We managed to locate a parkingarea in the same street as the hotel. The Hotel it self was ok. We missed quiet areas where one could have informal business meetings. The rooms where... More

Nice hotel close to fiskebryggen and city centre. Good variety of restaurants and bars within 5min walk. Location in a quiet street gives good value for sleep. Nice staff and a restaurant and breakfast buffet for all tastes. We will be back on this hotel again when in Bergen.
