I stayed here recently with my mother. We were very pleased with our stay. The staff is helpful and friendly. The location of the hotel is very convenient! Several museums are just around the corner and it is a short walk to major attractions. The breakfast buffet is more than abundant. We did not try the evening buffet, but it... More

Scandic Byparken is a very nice hotel located in the heart of Bergen. Main attractions are in walking distance. Breakfast buffet is not that big but enought for a good start into the day. Staff is friendly and helpful (recommanded a good restaurant). Rooms are equipped with usual standard. Wifi is available for free. Unfortunately, there are no parking spaces... More

This hotel is excellent both in terms of its price and quality. The hotel has family rooms which are ideal and economical for families. It is within walking distance to the fish market. The breakfast is excellent and is included. One of the waitresses, Giselda, is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. It was a great experience staying there.

Sumptuous breakfast. Nice mountain & park view from the room. Room was surprisingly not small and quite nice. Staff was kind. Confortable beds. Complimentary coffee in the room. Central position, 5 minutes' walk from the station.

Scandic Byparken It is very near to the central station and within walking distance to main attractions. The room we stayed was much smaller than Scandic Ornen as the rate is cheaper. As in Scandic hotel brand, they provide very good spread of breakfast regardless of the number of stars. You could eat till you drop. The only complaint is... More

Iron and Iron board which was suppose to be in our room was not available.We had to call reception post which it was told that we can collect it from their desk downstairs. Room amenities like toilet paper were not replaced. We... More

The only thing going for this hotel is its central location. Everything else is substandard. We paid more than NOK 2000 (ca. $250) and got a depressing room, poorly designed, long and narrow. Air condition didn't work in a hot summer day. Opening the windows meant terrible noise from a busy street, especially on weekend... Combining noise from loud party... More

Stayed for 1 night, stopover for Norway in a Nutshell tour. Room was small but good enough for just 1 night. We travelled with just backpacks. Will have problems if bringing large suitcases. No air-conditioning but weather in Bergen was cool enough. It rains on most days in Bergen. Remember to bring umbrella/rain poncho. Hotel's location is very good. 5... More

Stayed for one night. Got a small, basic room. No minibar or opportunity to make coffee of tea in the room - but you can get that in the reception so no big problem. Friendly and service minded staff. Breakfast was a bit crowded, but great selection and very good food. Will definitely stay here again.

Well located in Bergen, near bus and train stations. The airport express bus is only one block away. 5 min to the tourist information office, the docks and the old part of the city, Bryggen. Parking is available at Q-Parking right before arriving at the hotel, with a 30% discount for hotel guest. Be sure to give the parking ticket... More
