This hotel promised more than it delivered, I'm afraid. The positive of a big and clean room does not balance with the weaknesses: bad mattresses, dated furniture, standard breakfast, low quality toilet paper and toiletries. The ventilation seems to have a strange functioning since our 6th floor room was filled with breakfast smells evere morning. Its location is another thing... More

This hotel is most suitable if you come for business only. Room setting is standard, clean but furniture is outdated. Internet speed is quite fast. Strategically located near restaurants, bars, cafes and grocery shop. If you come to Bergen for tourism or with family better find another hotel.

Nice hotel with a good location. Rooms are clean and tidy. Breakfast vas good, with a good variety of dishes. The beds could be better quality and there could be a larger selection of pillows. A lot of nice restaurants within walking distance.

Hotel catering for business customers not tourists. Good location but wrong side of harbour for the pretty view. Reception staff vague and unhelpful throughout the stay. Noisy air vent system rumbling though night causing disturbed sleep. Staff ignored my complaint. Blood stained towel replaced with ripped one.

Very good value for money at this hotel which is located at Bryggen close to everything; the harbour, fishmarket and town center. Breakfast is included in the price. It's a nice, big, typical Norweigan one with salmon, makrel, brown cheese, etc. You can even make your own waffles.

We stayed a night at this hotel before moving on to Flam on boat. I have two small kids and needless to say a lot of luggage that goes with them, the Deluxe room on top floor was perfect and very spacious. Bedroom has double bed and the cot and the "living room" was also with a double bed and... More

This is a great place to stay in Bergen. It is right around the corner from Bryggen, the historic downtown city center. The room was cozy and cute, and had heated bathroom floors which was an unexpected surprise! The breakfast buffet was amazing!! Every kind of breakfast food imaginable including smoked salmon which I'm sure isn't cheap. The staff was... More

Very close to the harbor. We had a two bedroom family room. It was ok. The beds were too old. We did not have any views - it was in the back of the hotel, looking at another hotel's back wall. Not interesting. Breakfast was good.

I have just looked at the website and noticed how much bigger the rooms are to what we stayed in....being part of a large tour group, once again we were given the tiniest room but the other aspects of this hotel made up for the shortfall. Room was very tiny but cosy. Bedding comfy and the ability to open up... More
