Most likely if you are visiting Begen you are on your way to something else. (We flew in to take the Norway in a Nutshell tour to Oslo) It's a charming stopover perfect for a stroll thru the old town, the funicular up the little mountain and the small but interesting history museums. You need a centrally located, clean, quiet... More

We nicknamed this hotel "one squirt" due to the one squirt worth of shampoo and conditioner in the bathrooms!! The towels were tiny and threadbare. The beds were minute, and the mattresses must have been 100 years old. The lack of fitted sheets meant that much of the children's bedding and mattress protectors was on the floor by the morning....

This hotel is tired and the rooms very basic. The beds were so soft it made for a very poor night's sleep. The bath towels were very small and thin and no bath at so we had to use the towels to mop up the water on the floor. No safe, no tea & coffee facilities, no aircon, no iron... More

We only stayed at the First Hotel Marin for one night, but we enjoyed our stay. The front desk staff is not the most friendly, but definitely better than some we've had in the past. The rooms are good size, not too small. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet (your typical spead of eggs, bacon, cereals, yogurt, etc.). The hotel's... More

We learned quite painfully that First Marin Hotel plans generally with an overbooking of 5 rooms. Staff appeared condescending. Continental breakfast was lacking charm and organisation. We slept well enough in a quiet and cosy bed.

First we were booked in another room than we had booked and the room we got was not properly cleaned. Sofa with stains, dust and not even vacuumed. The bathroom was nice though. The second day we got the room that we originally booked which was cleaner and better overall. We got attitude from one of the reception staff when... More

The hotel is conveniently placed to restaurants and the attractions of the city. The hotel looks tired, the bar had closed down and the breakfast room was busy hot and airless. There were no tables available at 8.30 and the food was average at best. Staff could have been more helpful.

A very average hotel without friendly service. The room was very small and there really wasn't room for the extra bed for our teenager. The extra bed was so hard he woke up halfway through the night. The breakfast was very ordinary and lacked most everything you'd expect from a four star hotel. There were no croissants, no loose leaf... More

We really liked the hotel. It was in a very convenient location and the bus from the airport will stop pretty close by. We liked our cozy room with wooden beams on ceiling. The bed was very comfortable! The hotel could use a little sprucing up but it was just fine. Breakfast was good and plentiful.
