“Great Budget Hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Stayed here in late November for 1 night. It's very close to the main station and to the city centre. When we arrived our chosen twin room wasn't available so the staff upgraded us to a family room straight away. The room was clean and comfortable, the heater was effective and the room had double blinds to ensure darkness. We checked out at 11am, but had a 11pm train out of Bergen. The staff were happy for us to leave our bags and let us use the common area to eat dinner and watch TV until it was time for our train. All in all it was a great experience, extremely friendly staff and nice rooms. Would recommend.

Stayed here for four nights in november 2014. Nice sized room, clean, and warm bathroom! Squeaky beds, but slept well. Only thing we would have liked to have, was a couple of plastic cups for tooth brushing etc. Great and cheap accomodation, close to the Bergen railway station.

Plus, I would recommend eating breakfast and/or lunch at the Citycafe which is in the same building. Lovely muesli, and the vietnamese baguette is definetly worth trying!

My single room was clean, comfortable, spacious, and reasonably priced. However, the rooms are not cleaned during your stay unless you request it. Check-in is at a kiosk machine that I had no problem using and looking up my reservation. Check-out with the machine was easy as well. Wifi was free but at the time of my stay was not working and hadn't been for several weeks. The hotel is an easy walk to the train station and the city center and is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood.

The rooms are comfortable, the reception is friendly, the common space is comfortable. We put a note in our reservation that we were on honeymoon. In response, they upgraded us to a room with bathroom and put a small 'happy wedding' card and chocolates on the desk. With us, they went above and beyond. I would definitely stay there again.

Budget accommodations but successfully covers basic needs: quiet and safe neighborhood, clean room with comfortable bed, adequate work space with two chairs and good light, clean bathroom with good hot shower and heated floors, and an abundance of electrical outlets. Electric kettle and microwave available in the large common room and a self-service laundry with free detergent. Friendly and helpful staff assisted with our 'chip less' credit card and lost luggage. Great location near Flybussen drop off, train station, Meny and Rimi groceries in the shopping mall, Kode galleries, etc.

My husband and I stayed at the CityBox hotel in Bergen and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was very clean, the rooms were spacious and overall the entire structure was very well maintained. The hotel Manager, Anne Marie made our stay in Bergen a true pleasure, she is highly professional and helped us with all of our questions, concerns and accommodation.
The location of this economical hotel is PERFECT, just a 5 min. walk to the heart of the city center. We traveled in Norway for 3 weeks in August 2014, we want to go back. The city of Bergen remains in our hearts as one, if not THE most beautiful city we have visited! Everything about Bergen was delightful, the views, the mix between nature and urban life, all the activities, the lovely historic city. The hotel provided sheets, blankets and towels.. Thank YOU Anne Marie for making our visit to beautiful Bergen so pleasant! A presto-- Eugenia & Mirko (from Italy)

City box is located few hundred meters from the train station and you can easily go walking in bergen center! Rooms are old without any decoration could be noisy cause it is located in a corner street. Floor carpets are not perfectly clean...

The main thickness of city boxthere is no breakfast proposed, however you can find food shop at 10 meters..

Ok for 1/2 night(s) no more...
