Reception is bad had to wait one hour for check in, reservation was not existing, check out took as long. All my paperwork for reservation was correct and existing. No excuse or help during waiting time looks like person was overchallenged

This hotel has everything that I was looking for -- close to everything, nice room/bed to sleep in, free wifi, and breakfast. About 10 min walk to wharf/floybenen/fish market etc. 3 min walk to central station. Breakfast was awesome! Wow.

I stayed only one night but I appreciated the nice and helpful stuff, the central location and most of all the excellent breakfast buffet: very good variety of cold and warm dishes, eggs and omelets made right in front of you, salmon of course and many more choices for all tastes. Another plus is free tea and coffee 24/7 in... More

Our experience was not a very good one. We arrived at about 10:00 A.M. realizing that it was probably too early to check in but wanted to leave our luggage. Well, the luggage room is an unattended room downstairs and the staff hands the key to anyone that asks for it. After storing our luggage we were told to come... More

Refreshing change after dreadful radisson. Just as central and cheaper and nice rooms and great service. Ace breakfast. Right near the airport bus. Real neat and comfortable rooms. Great family room. Let us check in way early. Ace.

We stayed here for a day in August 2016 as a halt before the Sognefjord trip. It is close to the ferry terminal and the fish market and shopping areas are close by. One of the lifts weren't working when we arrived which put us in a bit of trouble as the other lift doesn't stop at all floors. But... More

We spent one night at the hotel. The location is central and very convenient for walking anywhere in the city. The hotel was quite busy (high-season). The parking for the car is in a nearby parking garage (7 min walk), reasonable fee. The room was small. The A/C was difficult to operate and didn't work properly. The shower was nice... More

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
