This hotel is located right on the historical Bryggen in Bergen. The beds were good. The breakfast was tasty and well presented. Attentive staff. Spacious rooms. I reallydid not find anything to complain about. :-)

We spent three nights in Bergen at this hotel, and were very satisfied with location at Bryggen, public parking house nearby, cleanliness, good beds and friendly staff. Breakfast could be a little bit improved.

This hotel is a 4 star hotel but has great rooms, room service and the food is also pretty good. I think you should stay in this hotel as all the famous attractions in Bergen are very close to it. The Bergen fisherman's wharf is only 600 metres away, and the funicular railway to Mount Ulriken is also less than... More

Great location right near the water and fish market steps away from everything in Bergen! This hotel was chosen by the tour group I was traveling with but I have to admit it is steps away from everything. Safe walkable area. This is an older hotel that does not appear to be remodeled lately. The hotel rooms are basic 3... More

We had a wonderful experience at the First Hotel Marin. It was our little holiday after a month in Europe rehearsing and performing concerts.

Good, convenient location. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The parking was very odd. A large vehicle would be a problem. The bread cutting at breakfast was not very well monitored. People were touching the bread and not using the napkin cause the napkin was not provided

The hotel is very well located. We were offered a spacious and quite room to our entire satisfaction. As Norwegian summer nights are short thicker curtains could still improve the quality of sleeping.

Harbour hotel. Friendly reception. Nice room with a view of the harbours. Well appointed, traditional decor. Chose for proximity to ferry terminal to Flam 100 m walk. Interesting town centre lots of shops and quaint cafes. Bergen is the busiest place we have see in Norway.

Our room was on the 3rd floor and was spacious and beautifully furnished. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was adequate and stocks were replenished regularly. The hotel was very well located for a good walk around the city. The harbour was a minute away and there were several good restaurants around the area.
