“A little bit more?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

This is one of the most traditional hotells in Bergen centraly located next door to the railway station. It is a member of the historic hotels of Norway. Small bedrooms but clean and modern. Good kitchen that could be very much better with some small changhes, such as coking poptatoes long enaugh and making real brown gravy with real taste. Dilicious breakfast , full english style. Included different pastry. The whiskey-bar is an extra reason to choose this hotel.

If you read the story...about the ghost, then you will definitely wanna have a sleep there!!
There is no ghost, only the atmosphere that travels you years back.
Nice,cozy rooms and great location!!
But what counts most is the no1 whisky bar---all the whiskies(!!) of the world are there!!
Definitely must visit!!!!

We stayed here on two occasions, before and after a cruise. We were happy with tis hotel. The location was convenient to the flybussen (airport bus). The hotel was a grand old style. The rooms were spacious, the bathrooms big. There wasn't a kettle as one reviewer said, but they directed me to a service section on the second floor that had washing machine, dryer, kettles, microwave. Breakfast was good, The atmosphere was dry, like many heated places, but the plus of this was any washing we did dried like a charm. Staff were very helpful too, and pointed out the shopping malls, ordered taxis for us. There is complimentary coffee and tea on the ground floor.

Grand and beautiful. We stayed in the junior suite and there were no shampoo or any toiletries provided. The only thing was a wall mounted soap pump in the shower with unknown content. For a place like like, it's a shame that at small selection of nice toiletries aren't provided.

We also missed a kettle and some tea/coffee in the room. You can go downstairs and get this, but that's not exactly the same.

The breakfast is nice and has a wide selection with options for everyone. Included vegetarians. The menu in the restaurant is less exciting, but you can have a pizza or some salads.

The radiators are behind radiator covers, and to adjust the temperature - you have to squeeze your hand in between the gap, really tricky.

Overall, it's a great hotel and I hope they will make these small changes to make it even better.

Thanks a lot for your detailed review. We will absolutely consider your suggestions. The hotel's guest soap is of high quality and the pump solution is a result of our environmental friendly operation program. We do have kettels to bring to your room and we offer free coffee and tea 24 H. Our à la carte offer is for the moment an informal and inexpensive concept. In January 2014 we are looking forward to present a renewed lounge and Whisky Bar with an expanded menu offer.

stayed for 4N in a nice airy room with high ceilings, openable windows and nice old-world charm. internet worked fine, so did hot water. breakfast had ample selection including interesting norwegian dishes. this place has a nice location relatively close to the cable car, next to the railway station. only downside was that the lobby bar closes early. counter staff were nice and helpful. would go again if going to bergen!

I stayed for just one night with very heavy suitcases. The staff were utterly helpful and kind, far beyond the call of duty. Room was fantastic with sofa and chairs, lots of space and large scrupulously clean bathroom ....would not hesitate to stay there again. Fruit, tea md coffee were freely available by the bar for no charge. Lovely feel tl the place and perfectly central for all Bergen activities.

Having stayed a total of 4 nights at this hotel between March and July 2013. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel on almost every count :
- Character of the lobby/bar/breakfast/stair areas complete with art and lots of dark wood panelling.
- Excellent food available in the bar.
- Service from the front desk where assistance was even given to ensure we and our bags all made it into our MaxiTaxi.
- Location is VERY central, not just to train station but to large shopping centre just beyond.

The Standard rooms are rather compact but big enough for 2. The family rooms cost more (most of the time) but are VERY spacious.
We travelled with a 2 year old child and for a hotel which did not look at first appearance to be a family hotel they were very accommodating.
We certainly prefer HGT to the Clarion Havnekontoret even if the latter may appear at first to be the better hotel.

Room Tip: Larger / family rooms are great but may be more pricey depending on availability / season. Standard...
