I found it! I located the hidden jewel in the midst of the tourist attraction "Vaagen" in Bergen. This hotel answered to all of our requests. The room (superior) was spacy, airy and furnitured with old dark wooden chairs, sofa, tables, closet. The bed was a dream as soft as our own dreams. The bath? Fantastic! Two sinks! Separate bathtub... More

This was my third stay in the Hotel, it's very well appointed in a beautiful historical building, it is right in the centre of Bergen near the fish market. I can't fault the hotel, their comfortable beds and amazing bathrooms. I have read number of reviews about noise but in all my stays I have not heard any disturbance or... More

i'll start by saying the hotel is so charming and renovated so well with just the right amount of creaks, uneven floors and worn areas mixed with elegant touches like chandeliers. i carefully read hotel reviews before booking here and also contacted the hotel ahead of time so was prepared for some of the challenges. the bed was comfy, and...

Very charming hotel with a historic background. I really looked forward to stay here and was not disappointed. Charming room with good quality on amenities. Location in Bergen is extremely central. If you are a Norway tourist you should consider yourself lucky to stay here. It is part of the historical area with a lot of central history within walking... More

we stayed at this hotel due to being recommended to be one of the best in Bergen. It is a quirky hotel with the wooden timbers and uneven wood floors. On arrival the receptionist was friendly, unfortunately this did not last long, the other staff were uninterested and bordering on the very rude. we were in room 222 which faces... More

Quite a character filled residence. Old, yet stylish, with a great restaurant and friendly front desk staff. Stayed for one night only, but felt very homely and comfortable. Whilst some of the corridors could be mistaken for a rabbit warren, the place makes up for it with large open central walkways and windows and a great restaurant and bar. I... More

This hotel stands out first of all because of its location. It is situated in the old part of town, Bryggen, just alongside the Hanseatic museum, right on the waterfront. Just steps from the fish market. It is one of the ancient rebuilt buildings of the town. Staying here makes you feel as if you were in the 16th. century!... More

In a trip with so many chain hotels, choosing this one was definitely a very good thing! Very charming old building, where the old mixes with the new with class, and gives us that "home out of home" feeling during a trip. The location is perfect, just around the corner of Brygge, in front of a Mc Donalds, a Starbucks... More

Right at the start of the historic Bryggen lies this highly special hotel with excelllent staff and beautiful interior. Arriving a little early we were given an upgraded room since the one we had booked wasn't ready yet. Nice breakfast included made this stay unforgettable and reasonable. We will definately return. The entrance of the hotel is a little anonimous... More

I was going on a business trip to Bergen, and I did a thorough research to find the right hotel. Therefore the choice fell on this hotel. I was actually convinced after reading so many laudatory reviews. The hotel is very centrally located, yet secluded. The taxi driver did not know where it was and we had to ask several... More
