I used to live in Bergen for many years and the Radisson Bryggen hotel was where i splurged on brekafast now and then. I therefore had great expectations both regarding the breakfast and the rooms which were recently renovated.
I still find the rooms somewhat dark. I stayed in a business room facing the nearby building, so not much light is comming in from the outside. The lights in the room were ok though, and i especially liked the lights on top of the bed. Cool!
I liked the furniture in the room. Desk chair was the model 7 chair by Arne Jacobsen and the other chair was the famous Barcelona chair. The bed was also supercomfy and I slept really well.
The bathroom is somewhat small. I don'l like having to stand in the bathtub to have a shower, and think they should better have dropped the tubs and only had showerstalls. The bathroom would have appeared larger as well then. Also, they should have more than one bodysoap/shampoo. I had to shower before I went out for dinner and also wanted to shower before breakfast the morning after. Since there had not been a turn down service, my towels were still a bit damp and there was not enough shampoo. I don't mind the towels that much, but could it be an idea to put in an extra shampoo?
The brekafast was not as good as it used to be. I might be wrong, but i belive that earlier you could order omelettes etc, and there were no such things anymore. And the scrambles eggs were made out of powder I believe. Only two types of juices, no smoothies, few fruit options. A bit disappointed with the breakfast, very pleased with the renovation that has been done.
