The Hotel is situatet right in central Bergen only few steps from flöjtebanan and the harbor. We had a very nice room and enjoyed our stay in Bergen. However, we experienced lack of engagement amount the staff. Not that the service was bad it was just as they didn't care. Maybe it was the compareson with the staff on The... More

I stayed at this hotel during a business trip earlier this summer. The hotel offers good standard, nice and tidy rooms and very good service in the reception. If you are traveling to Bergen this absolutely a good alternative.

Located in walking distance to everything worth seeing in Bergen. Spacious room with comfortable beds and quiet ambience. Friendly and attentive staff made our stay a pleasure and we would love to come back. Our only concern was the Parking house under the hotel, it was a miracle that we got out without damaging the car. Use the Parking house... More

We spent three nights in Bergen at this hotel, and were very satisfied with location at Bryggen, public parking house nearby, cleanliness, good beds and friendly staff. Breakfast could be a little bit improved.

This hotel is a 4 star hotel but has great rooms, room service and the food is also pretty good. I think you should stay in this hotel as all the famous attractions in Bergen are very close to it. The Bergen fisherman's wharf is only 600 metres away, and the funicular railway to Mount Ulriken is also less than... More

Great location right near the water and fish market steps away from everything in Bergen! This hotel was chosen by the tour group I was traveling with but I have to admit it is steps away from everything. Safe walkable area. This is an older hotel that does not appear to be remodeled lately. The hotel rooms are basic 3... More

We had a wonderful experience at the First Hotel Marin. It was our little holiday after a month in Europe rehearsing and performing concerts.

Good, convenient location. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The parking was very odd. A large vehicle would be a problem. The bread cutting at breakfast was not very well monitored. People were touching the bread and not using the napkin cause the napkin was not provided

The hotel is very well located. We were offered a spacious and quite room to our entire satisfaction. As Norwegian summer nights are short thicker curtains could still improve the quality of sleeping.
