We love the fact that the distance to the famous harbor is just a minute or 2 walk away. The environment around is also safe. Close to most of points of interest, close to funicular ride, bus rides are also just in the corner. The airport shuttle bus stop is only less than 5 minutes walk. A lot of restaurant's... More

Torn carpet, battered paint, shower over bath which sprayed more on the floor than you, poor housekeeping as in dirty, and car noise made this hotel a poor choice in Bergen. Plus was helpful staff and great location but no way compensates for the negatives. Stay elsewhere.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were 6 family members traveling, and we had 3 rooms. The rooms were very nice, and we had a quiet stay. The central location was great for everything we wanted to do. We also enjoyed the breakfast selections.

My basic requirements for a room is that it is quiet and that the bed is comfortable. My room met neither of those requirements. It was located on the second floor next to a bar and restaurant which remained noisy until about 11:30pm. It was also next to a busy street. The bed was very hard and the pillow felt... More

This place is really nice. The rooms are spacious,clean, and comfy. The breakfast is outstanding. The rates are reasonable. It is centrally located to shopping, bars, and the heart of Bergen. A great choice if you are planning a trip to Bergen.

GOOD: Location, breakfast buffet, clean room. BAD: I parked my car in the parking garage beside the hotel. Just pay for 48 hours (we were staying two days) and you are fine was the girl telling me behind the desk, so I did. After 24 hours the hotel told me I had to leave the parking because of maintenance. I... More

Near the fish market, so in walking distance of most city attractions. Large clean room with comfortable beds. Although centrally positioned, quiet (we were on the fifth floor). Late check out (12.00), with luggage storage once checked out. Free wifi and free access to hotel computer and printer (we used this for our boarding passes). Able to use lounge with... More
