Dear Freedom13735800616, Thank you for your feedback after your stay with us, we appriciate it! We are happy to hear you and your family had a pleasant stay with us, and that you enjoyed the breakfast. Unfortuantely, since we are in the city centre, some noise will be heard, but it is more silent with the window closed, as you figured out also. Hope we can welcome you back next time you are in Bergen! Best regards, Anette Johansen, Front Office Manager

The nearest bus stop is on Kyrres Gate near the Radisson Blu Hotel Norge. It takes about 3 minutes to walk thee from the Scandic Byparken. There are bus departures every day of the week at 03:30, 04:05, 04:50, 05:35, 06:05 (after which times depend on the day of the week). For an 07:30 flight I would aim for the 05:35 departure as it takes 30 minutes roughly to the airport. You can book on the web and the ticket is valid for any bus on that day (or pay the driver, which costs slightly more).

Hi Olivia. The best was to reach the hotel is the airport express bus.'Festplassen' is the name of the stop closest to the hotel. Just tell the driver before you board and he will inform when you reach there. We had the same itinerary as you did for the Norway in a nutshell tour. The central station is a few minutes (approx 900m) walk from the hotel. The breakfast is served quite early. From 6-10am I think but I am not too sure. But I do remember we had our breakfast and reached the station around 8.30am. Try to reach the station asap since the train is already there people start occupying the places. Enjoy your trip.

"7th floor very quiet"
"ask for what you prefer, staff are helpful. But you can get better value rooms in other hotels."
"If, unlike us, you need more room than a place to sleep and to launch your Bergen adventure, upgrade your room."
"Avoid rooms adjacent to the alley. Avoid the economy rooms for bookings of more than 1 person - these rooms are extremely tight."
"Check that your room has blackout curtains if travelling any time other than winter."
