Our room was on the 3rd floor and was spacious and beautifully furnished. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate and stocks were replenished regularly. The hotel was very well located for a good walk around the city. The harbour was a minute away and there were several good restaurants around the area.

Great location and staff understanding of the problems. However the room I was offered was above the garage door which was opening and closing constantly creating a disturbing noise.The Hotel was fully booked so no other room was available when I asked to be moved. I was told that the door wouldnt be disturbing during the night. It woke me... More

I stayed at the First Hotel Marin in November 2013. While the hotel location is fantastic (right near the Bryggen, one block from the airport shuttle stop), many aspects of the hotel were sub-par. Our room had a harbor view (which was amazing!), but the room was dimly lit and in need of updating. We had two bedside lamps that... More

The Hotel Marin was centrally located to all of the main attractions in Bergen. The rooms were quite large with a nice large bathroom with heated floors. My girlfriend and I shared a room and there was plenty of room. The Wi-Fi was free with a strong signal, staff were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast provided a wide... More

Spent two nights in room 607 which was a good size, very clean, and quiet both from outside and inside the hotel - we heard no internal noise at all. Overlooked the side street, with a glimpse of the harbour, don't think I would bother paying more for a waterfront view. Breakfast and wifi included in room rate - no... More

I remembered this old world hotel from a visit 12 years ago and booked it again because I had such fond memories. Close to the waterfront, the Information Center where you can get tickets to just about everything, and a few steps from the Floybanen, the funicular that goes to the top of a hill above the city for spectacular...

A nice hotel, make sure you get a room at the front over looking the harbour even if it means paying a bit more. Only comment from a female point of view was the lack of a mirror in the room for the application of make-up. Location convenient for Tourist Information, Fish Market and Funicular.

I am a regular visitor to Bergen and last stayed at this hotel some years ago. That visit was filled with issues, including a room that was well in need of a makeover and poor housekeeping. It seems after 6 years some of those issues still remain. On this visit I had booked the penthouse suite. The room itself was... More

We enjoyed a four night stay in a large, nicely furnished, quiet room. The location in the Bryggen made it easy to walk to many of the city's main attractions. Breakfast was generous, both in the quality and variety of food offered and in the span of time it was offered. Staff was courteous and helpful. Altogether a very pleasant... More
