Spent 3 nights here midweek in a suite. We were very impressed by hotel. Firstly it's a really old building so everything is not exactly plum, but this adds to the character of the place. We stayed in a suite and it was money well spent. Very spacious, two bathroom sinks, large shower recess, two reading nooks, so you could... More

Just returned to England from a wonderful weekend in Bergen where we stayed in this amazing small hotel. From the moment we arrived and opened the door into the reception we were greeted by an open fire. Then on to our lovely attic room bursting with character. The tasty buffet breakfast was a treat. This hotel was just what we... More

We loved this place! The rooms are a bit quirky but it is an old building and that is to be expected. The room was clean and well-appointed. The location can't be beat. I would definitely stay here again. Staying here was a great way to wind up our time in Scandinavia. The restaurants were also good. The included breakfast... More

I dropped in and found a friendly welcoming hotel, fire place lit, warm smiles, homely setting. Location is outstanding, in the centre of Bergen, right on the fish market and the Hanseatic Bergen. The building is an old wooden hanseatic house, with all the original features; narrow corridors, leading around corners and over bridges to the rooms. The popular restaurant... More

We stayed in one of the junior suites. We only stayed for one night, but it was very nice, clean and roomy. We had a big bathroom with tub, so that was a huge plus. Highly recommended if you want something different from all of the "modern" hotels.

My husband and I stayed at the Hanseatic Hotel for 4 nights in August, 2015. We were delighted with every part of our stay. The location was right on the edge of Bryggen, the old city, and, in fact, the site had been a warehouse in old Bryggen and the hotel still has some elements of the original structure. It... More

Det Hanseatiske Hotel is located across several old buildings in the Bryggen in Bergen. It is perfectly located for shops, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions. Our room was very spacious and well appointed in keeping with the age of the building. Breakfast offered a wide selection of quality items from the buffet. The only negative aspect of our stay was...

Aka: Det Hanseatiske, this is a neat old hotel that’s made up of several restored buildings down on the waterfront, near the Fishmarket. Had a pleasant 4-night stay here in late October, while waiting for the Trollfjord to sail. We got one of the top floor rooms (447) with no view (but a big hoisting wheel in the bathroom), but...

We had rented 3 suites as these were the better and more spacious rooms. We were not disappointed. It is a unique, and different hotel. Its cozy, close to everything - on the wharf area, clean rooms, good service and excellent breakfasts. Has modern TVs and bathrooms. Friendly staff. Starbucks in a folk like setting is next store as is... More
