“Great location, room so so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

This location was great. And the staff very helpful. The breakfast was ok. Now for the not so great. Upon check in, we found out that they had the reservation for my in laws on the wrong date. I had printed copies of our confirmation with the correct dates. They did find us a room for them, but I can't fathom how they moved the dates made on their online reservation system.

The room was their standard room and was very basic. The curtains and the carpet were stained. The bathroom was ok, but they only gave us half a roll of toilet paper and we had to go ask for a new roll.

In Bergen centre, walking distance to whatever. The Tall Ships Races 2014 right outside. The Rosenkrantz Tower directly opposite the entrance. Paid NOK 795 for a good sized Queen room with a wide variety of breakfast included. Bergen is famous for its rain; the hotel sells umbrellas for NOK 40. Only; Mr. Thon, you make us pay to give your enterprise advertising space ! ;) Lovely quiet space above the reception area where one could linger, read the papers, help oneself to drinks of coffee and tea.

Room Tip: Stayed in 481 which was very quiet, and then on returning, one night in 203 right above the receptio...

Hotel is in perfect spot, close to two small grocery stores, and mere steps from the UNESCO World heritage site of 11 buildings, and the best shopping of our whole trip. Just across the bridge - the fish market, and all kinds of food! Hotel staff very friendly, room was clean, and breakfast was excellent. Loved the funky elevator and very large sitting, visiting room complete with grande piano.

Room Tip: Get a room that looks over back parking lot and you can leave your window open all night. No a/c in...

Breakfast buffet had many choices and food was replenished. Rooms were small. Location very convenient to wharf and sights. Arrangement with local fitness center made a nice facility available at no charge. Next door to free Resistance Museum from WWII. Staff were friendly and helpful. We opened the windows to cool the room.

Room Tip: If a concert is happening at Rosenkrantz tower, some rooms are adjacent to this.

This hotel was very central to the best tourist sites in Bergen. It is not a classy hotel at all but the staff are friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good and it was quiet for sleeping. Unfortunately it was so hot, we had trouble sleeping and bathroom heated floor was on, which probably added to the temperature. We left our baggage at the hotel (no responsibility taken by the hotel) and when we returned, had an hour to kill before catching the airport bus (just around the corner, every 15 minutes $15 each) and there were comfortable seats, coffees and iced water provided while we sat.

The hotel would need some refurbishment. Old elevators, room without A/C. However they serve a good breakfast and the hotel is very well located close to the Bragg en area and to the fish market. Good for a short stay.
