The room was terrible. On the 5th floor, we had to lug suitcases up stairs from the 4th floor, because the lift only goes that far. The main feature of the room was the sloping ceiling (like in an attic) which meant you couldn't walk upright around the bed. There were no cupboards and barely enough room for 2 suitcases.... More

Like other reviewers said, the hotel is above a club so you are essentially hearing extremely loud bass all night until the club closes at around 3am. The hotel was very nice though, although a little pricey for not having breakfast. The front desk staff was very apologetic when I came down at about 1130 that night saying the bass... More

I was in Bergen for a weekend trip and picked this hotel due to it being significantly cheaper than most other hotels in the area (Norway as a general rule of thumb is rather pricey). As mentioned in the other reviews there are two clubs right next to the hotel which can present a noise issue however there were ear... More

Basically the room is nicely designed and well equipped (tons and tons of pillows...ahhh) but our sleep quality was terrible as there is a pub right under the window and they blasted their music until about 3am... so my advice is ask for an inner room!! Besides for that- Hotel is at great location if coming from airport- the flybussen... More

Everything in Norway is shockingly expensive to an American but I found this hotel to be a good value. It is indeed above a very rowdy bar but I actually found the morning construction noises more disturbing than the dance music, even though we were only on the second floor.

Keys, phone, wallet, smile - says the label on the door in Basic Hotel Bergen, seen when going out. I will try to look at the hotel in this form. Keys - yes, the hotel is a fine key to the Bergen town. The location is just great! A couple of minutes to Bryggen, fishmarket, railway/bus station. Phone - well,... More

As the name suggests, Basic Hotel Bergen provides basic necessities; A comfortable bed, decent & clean room and a pretty spacious room. The location is nicely located. 5-10mins walk from city center. There are quite a few nice restaurants around here, and a supermarket is located just around the corner. At certain days, it can be pretty noisy as there... More

Lovely place in the heart of Bergen and close to all you'd want to do. Reasonably affordable but just a notch too much since there is no breakfast and not free coffee. One thing is important, when you see earplugs being given on reception and your room you know something is going to make noise. That was the club next... More

Very good location, good price by Norwegian standards. It is nothing fancy but it is clean and functional. The staff are also very helpful. Word of advice though, do notify the hotel if you are checking in late as the reception desk is unmanned overnight. They have an afterhours system and you'd not want to miss this and sleep in...

Stayed here for two nights in June 2014 with my sister. The room was small but nice and clean. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is also very good as it's only a few minutes walk down to the fish market and pier. We opted for their breakfast deal at the bakery Godt Brød, and the... More
