5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff and food at this hotel are wonderful. Also the hotel is very convenient to the sites in Bergen. One of the best features was the fact that transportation to and from the airport were right outside the door.

We were in Bergen for the long weekend and after seeing that Havnekontoret tops the Tripadvisor listing in this city we decided to go for this option. Clarion Collection hotels are normally excellent - they are housed in beautiful buildings and the rooms and service quality at Havnekontoret were great. However, one thing that was very disappointing was the breakfast.... More

This is a wonderful hotel with the best location in Bergen. While it is a bit pricey, the fact that you get an outstanding breakfast and dinner buffet make it more reasonably priced. The staff is extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again if I return to Bergen.

We arrived in Bergen on the new Viking Star. We stayed an extra night in Bergen before heading back to the U.S. It was an easy walk with bags to the hotel from the cruise terminal. They allowed us to have our room when we arrived at 8:30 a.m. Since it was raining, we felt very lucky. The room was... More

Overall this is a nice hotel conveniently located at the center of Bryggen and I would stay here again. As others mentioned, the lone receptionist can get busy in the evenings (we had to stop by several times to pickup a package left for us by another traveler). The rooms can get noisy if there are concerts outside along the... More

Duration of stay: 4 nights (24-28 April 2015) Booking process and check-in/check-out: We booked through the Nordic Choice website. Process is pretty straightforward, but although there is a "Family suite" for 2 persons listed on the website, I found no dates on which this was bookable. Information about the rooms is pretty limited on the website, in fact all the... More

Location: is very good! Service: During the day is good. In the night there just one person at reception, no housekeeping and etc. If that person is busy then no service. Rooms: Are old. Conditioning is impossible to switch off! It was cold in the room. Next time I would rather stay at Radisson Blue that is in front of... More

Havnekontoret met all high expectations. Super friendly staff at the reception on arrival, vacant room ready already at noon, with harbour view! Perfect situation next to the historic Bryggen wood houses. Old time charm in the hotel building. Free evening meal between 6-9 pm very tasty, good way to end the day after long walks or start the evening for... More

Staff are 5* couldn't recommend more highly. Polite, helpful and enthusiastic. They upgraded us and gave us late check out. We felt very relaxed in the hotel & enjoyed the large breakfast and dinner..

Highly recommend this hotel. LOCATION: Within a short walk from everything you'd want to check out (including the train station for those doing Norway in a Nutshell like we did). AIRPORT SHUTTLE: Airport shuttle stop is conveniently located across the street. STAFF: Rikke at the reception desk was super friendly and went out of her way to make sure we... More
