This hotel's location is about the only thing great about it. The rooms are dated, bathroom had mold, breakfast buffet was not very good (recommend Godt Brod which is just down the street as an alternative). Service was good but they have no bell service. They did let us borrow umbrellas which was a plus given the weather.

If your idea of a fun breakfast is to dine with bus loads of tourists who are rude and grumpy then this could be the hotel for you, not to mention how terrible the coffee is and that it is the only hotel we stayed in after almost 4 wks in Norway that DIDN'T serve Lachs for breakfast--they are cheap...

We were a party of four grown ups, and had booked 2 rooms for two nights. The two nights were booked on two different dates, and the gun in the reception could only find the booking for the first night. He was unfortunately not very helpful in finding out what had happened. After having parked the car we were helped... More

Was so pleased with this lovely hotel. I came in a few days prior to an organized hiking trip and found a great rate at First Hotel Marin. The view from the room was spectacular. Nice big room with a lovely bathtub, always important for a gal flying solo! A block from the harbor, restaurants, and hiking trail up to... More

Great central location for the hotel. Nice accommodations. Size of the room was great. Beds were very comfortable. Just wish the breakfast buffet would have opened a little earlier on Saturday morning but they did prepare a nice breakfast box for us to take. I would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here for a couple of nights - the rooms were clean and modern and the buffet breakfast had plenty of variety (including bacon/sausage/eggs). The hotel was full when we stayed but still not too busy at breakfast and check-in/check-out. The location of this hotel is perfect for visiting the Bryggen area and it was surprising how close everything was... More

We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. The hotel is perfectly located in the best area of Bergen, and not faraway from the fish market. Also, the airport bus dropped us close to the hotel. The rooms were spacious and nicely furnished. The breakfast was rich and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only problem we had... More

A comfortable hotel located very much in the city center of Bergen. Got a large room at a decent rate, a bit pricy but as expected in Norway. Superb dinner at the restaurant, fresh cod well prepared, highly recommended. Will stay here again whenever I am in Bergen next time.

Whilst we discovered eating out in Norway was generally very expensive, having booked this Hotel via Expedia, it was a relative bargain. Very clean, rooms were of a high standard, and the breakfast on offer was superb. Very well located to the centre of Bergen, which also meant convenient to the Coach stop if using it from the Airport. I'd... More

Apparently I drew the long straw and received a nice, large room in this hotel. It was comfortable, and everything about the experience was basically pleasant. Here are a few points: 1. The staff are efficient at their jobs. While not over the top with charm, they are able to handle checking you in and out with decency and courtesy.... More
