Travelers' Choice
As relatives of Edvard Grieg, our desire is to create a one of a kind experience – a classic, yet modern take on the hotel experience that offers our guests a taste of the composer’s remarkable life, his relationships and his unique life story. Our ambition is to attract visitors, both travelers and locals, into a haven of music, entertainment and diverse cultural experiences – to showcase what Bergen truly has to offer. The main floor is an open grand room with heavy granite walls and ionic columns in polished marble. The building with its many decorative details was designed by architect Herman Schirmer and later extended twice. Architect Schak Bull, who also drew Edvard Grieg’s residence “Troldhaugen”, was responsible for the last extension in 1918. Schak Bull was also Edvard Grieg’s cousin We promise wonderful beds, a great location and warm and welcoming service!

Opus 16 is a lovely old hotel with friendly, helpful staff. We found that we really needed the staff because our room didn't have some basic items. We called them to get a luggage rack (two actually) because there were no drawers to put our clothes away. We asked for a second chair so we could both sit comfortably to enjoy our room service breakfast. Sitting on the bed wasn't great for eating, reading or just hanging out. We even learned that the only way to change the temperature in the room was by calling reception. And to use the phone, one had to kneel on the floor to reach the wall mounted phone. Our deluxe room felt pretty cramped but it was still a good place to stay. And the location was very convenient.

This is a very good hotel, with good rooms, very good service level with an outstanding restaurant serving superb food for the breakfast and dinner. Definitely would come back. Just one, small, minus – we were travelling on spacial occassion, informed the hotel about it with advance and the hotel did nothing about it – not even a congrats card in the room.

Beautiful building and friendly, attentive staff. Shared areas and rooms all well appointed and maintained. Breakfast and dinner both excellent. A great base for spending some time in Bergen and well worth the little extra cost.

Our group of nine couples visited Bergen after our Arctic cruise in June 2022. I asked the tour operator to specifically book Opus XVI based on reviews. Opus XVI certainly did not disappoint. The location of the hotel is second to none, just opposite the Fish Market/Harbor. Many of the tourist attractions were within short walking distance. The building was charming and interior high class. The room was of adequate size. The bathroom was big and bright. Turn down service was provided without intrusion. The included breakfast was served in the Dining Room. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive. A pianist provided music for the first two days and a young violinist the last two days. The breakfast had four different main course choices with options for fruit, pastry and juices. It was probably the best breakfast we ever had (at par with the Oberoi Hotels in India). The best comment I saved for the Opus XVI Reception Staff. Everyone was pleasant, polite and informative. They tried calling so many restaurants to make dinner reservations for our group. It was an impossible task for such a big group without prior notice. We would certainly stay at Opus XVI again. It is a GEM.

Unfortunately my tenderloin was over cooked and I had to wait for a replacement. This spoiled the meal as my partner was finished his food before my replacement had arrived. Such a shame as the food was delicious.

Lovely historic hotel in the heart of historic Bergen. Room was very clean. Bathroom had large vanity, walk in shower. Gorgeous tile throughout bathroom. Molton Brown bath products. The bedroom in our room had large windows with nice blackout blinds. Comfortable bed, lots of power outlets including USB power next to bed. There were multiple pillows. Daily maid service ensured room was clean. Nightly turn down service. Breakfast is available. Great selection of foods, kitchen accommodating for requests. Laundry services are available, priced per item. Underwear approx $4/pair, shirt $7, pants $12 (current USD conversion). To note: temperature control is provided by the front desk. It was very warm during our stay, and AC kept turning off. We would call the desk and ask to turn back on, it would run for 30 minutes and turn off again. The front desk did bring us a fan to assist. There is a mini bar in the room. When we checked in, prior guest had put a partially used drink back in. We brought this to the attention of the front desk, who assured us we would not be charged. The day after we departed, we were charged for that drink. I would stay here again as overall this was an excellent hotel and location.

my title really says it all. It's a lovely hotel that I would recommend. Very nice front desk staff and helpful. Unfortunately I didn't see a step down towards the front desk and had a bad fall. I survived it without broken bones and they were very concerned.

Opus XVI is excellent. The rooms are very nice, comfortable and clean. The hotel’s location is A+, nearby to everything important, and the service is spectacular. Martin, Andrea, Ingrid and Susana at the front desk provide wonderfully helpful concierge assistance. We stayed here in May and again in July for a week each time. The lobby lounge is comfortable and a nice place to stop during the afternoon or after dinner and the hotel’s restaurant excellent! We will write a separate review of the hotel’s restaurant. The hotel gets our highest recommendation.
