“Elegant hotel with great staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

I was here the first week in December for a scientific conference. The location (across the street from the train station) was perfect, as was the interesting 10-minute walk to the waterfront area.The staff were exceptionally nice. My room was very comfortable and had windows that opened, so I could get fresh air and hear some of the city noises. The bathroom was a good size and nicely appointed. Breakfast was an amazing variety of smoked fish, fresh fruit, elegant pasties and excellent coffee in addition to hot dishes such as scrambled eggs. The meting rooms were elegant and charming. But my favorite spot was the whiskey bar in the corner of the wonderful lounge. Very special hotel in beautiful Bergen. Highly recommend!

Stayed here from jan 7th to jan 11th, made so welcome, had a lovely room, which was a suite, massive, overlooking the front of the building.

Hotel in a great location, right next to railway station, and buses for the airport, can even book the norway in a nutshell tour from the station, day you go.

Breakfast huge, and really nice, good way to fill up, because bergen is extortionate, for food and drinks, i.e. 22 pounds for 2 beers, 16 pounds for a plate of fried rice, 10 pounds for a bowl of soup. The hotel always has free tea, coffee, fruit, pastries, unbelievable. (book here.)

Room Tip: if you can afford to, book a suite, well worth it.

After having stayed at two hotels in Poland, one in Denmark all with lots of things that could be better. It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel. So nice. Nothing I can complain about and that is not often. Superfast free Internet, nice comfortable beds, magnificent breakfast. And not to forget smiling and very nice staff. And helpful, my first room I got was
a bit cold, without any debate I got a
warmer room. I came by car and there is a parking building just next to the hotel. Also close to shops and the railway station which is across the street.

Reading other reviews it seems we struck gold with our room as it was massive!
We chose this hotel for its proximity to the station, we arrived by train from Oslo, and its 4 star status. We were happy with our choice.
As I say, we were given a massive room with a table and chairs, two armchairs, a big bathroom, and lots of space. It was facing the main road but we weren't disturbed by any traffic noise (we live in London so do not require silence to sleep).
The staff were friendly, the pastries in the lobby when we came in from a day exploring Bergen were welcome and the bar was cosy and well stocked.
The breakfast was fine, but not as good as the Oslo hotel we had been staying at previously so I am probably being harsh with fine.
Overall, I would stay at Grand Terminus again.

The buliding is really nice. The lobby and the whiskey bar is also really nice.

However the room I had was just not up to four star standard. It was really, really small and quite worn. It's in real need of some TLC. Also - the cleaning was not very impressive. See the attached photo of the toilet.

The location is great. Just by the trainstation and just a few minutes walk to the real centre of town.

I would most probably look for another hotel when I go to Bergen again.

Stayed for two nights, opposite the train station - great for when arriving late and the room had minibar and great curtains - to keep out summer sun. Beds were comfortable and rooms had everything you needed. The hotel had a whiskey bar and also serves meals til late - Arctic Char was good. Breakfast was a bit lacklustre and it took quite some time for things to be replenished if at all! The hotel has a laundry room which we didn't find out until the day we left - would've been helpful to know in advance. Staff were pleasant and helpful and town centre was only a short walk away.

Stayed July 2012

Attended a wintery conference at the Grand Terminus and after the initial shock of squeezing into the tiny room (though grateful for heated tiny bathroom) I began to enjoy the hotel. Loved the gym (not that it was flash but you needed a workout in the middle of winter) and was in there every single day for 5 days, turned the 7 flights of stairs into another exercise opportunity and regularly hung out in the whiskey bar for a drink, cup of tea and catch up with colleagues. There is no kettle in the rooms thus everyone gets their free tea, coffee and fruit in the whiskey bar. It was a very good conference venue with fantastic breakfast buffet spread, especially the bread, pate, picked herring, and berry shots. Lunch was ok, good variety, and same with the conference dinner. I would stay the whiskey bar staff are just lovely and the front desk staff, somewhat friendly. Definitely visit the fish market and Tonga bar at the harbour.

Room Tip: If you need space and are over 6 foot tall you might want a bigger and not the basic room.
