do not stay here If you want to and needs to sleep at night !! The music from the disco will keep you from it. The wending machine is broken, and the reception did not know when it would be fixed. Price is low, the bed is comfy, the room ok. But the management should write in the description: suitable for people who stays up at night and sleep during the day. Will not recomend this Hotel, and will never stay here again !!!

Overall, the stay was ok. The location within Bergen is walking distance to the train station and there is a small grocery store nearby. The young woman who checked me in was friendly and offered some recommendations of places to visit. The room was clean and the size was as I expected. However, having not read the reviews carefully enough, I had no idea the hotel was over a night club. Luckily I was at the back of the hotel on the 4th floor and that muted some of the noise however it was still loud. The hotel does provide ear plugs in the room. For safety reasons, I do not like to sleep with two earplugs however there was no choice and they actually did block out the noise. However you cannot wear earplugs and relax watching some tv before bed. Was it a horrible experience? No. Would I stay here again? Probably not which is too bad as everything else was fine with the hotel and location.

Gave a fair review for being clean and comfortable but above a club so very noisy from 10pm to 3am every night. Complained to hotel but no reply received. Don't think this should be marketed as a hotel as not a resting place and way too much money for putting up with the noise. Trip was terrible because if this.

DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL!!!! Staying in this hotel you will be trying to sleep in a nightclub. Afer 11pm the whole hotel shakes and vibrate to loud music from an adjacent nightclub. You will find in any booking site a small fine print to say that some noise 'may be experienced'. Noise will be experienced so save yourself any stress and find another hotel. I am writing this at 2.30am on a Thursday night in July and I am praying that there is a power cut!!!!

Definitely a very basic hotel. You will not find the following things: a 24h reception (if you will arrive late you will have to do a self check-in), amenities, separated bath soap and shampoo, tea or coffee (but you will have a boiler..and fake and dusty flowers!), breakfast, daily cleaning service. These missing for 190€ per night?? Norway is crazy so maybe yes, but never again. There is also a noisy club close to the main entrance so maybe the rooms at the first and second floor would be disturbed.
