The only negative was the small size of the room. Everything else was perfect. Great location, terrific breakfast and very friendly and helpful staff. We would certainly go back. The reception and bar area was perhaps a little limited,

Hotel's Favorite
Picked this hotel in part because of its great location and fun and funky interior. Neither disappointed. We flew into Bergen and took the shuttle bus going into downtown. We got off at the Festplassen stop, which was a few quick block from the hotel. From the hotel it was an easy walk to Bryggen and the Floibanen. After our time in Bergen, we were off on the Norway in a Nutshell route to Oslo. From Hotel Oleana, it was an easy 10 minute walk to the train station to start the Nutshell excursion. The fun and funky interior refers to two historic buildings that encompass the hotel proper. The elevator has "A" and "B" floors, because the two buildings don't line up, which was fun. The dominant color is purple and the rooms are comfortable, modern, and quirky in a good way. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was yummy.

I should have known not to do it when I saw the check in was one computer at a bar manned by a 16 year old. No bellmen, no concierge, no other people at all. Starting off, they couldn’t honor the reservation. I accepted a downgrade & registered. The list from there is ridiculous. 1. Nobody answered the front desk calls. 2. Housekeeping was so bad - no coffee, no new toiletries, no clean beds, etc. etc. 3. The doors don’t lock when you leave which means anyone can walk in. 4. No room service. 5. No ice. 6. No mini bar replacements 7. I can go on & on & on. If you’re looking for a hotel, this is not one. It has no regular staff you’d expect at all. There is one person in the bar & that’s it. If you need anything at all, there;s no one to do anything. Everything about this place, crappy beds, poor housekeeping, no mini bar replacements- not worth a penny you pay. The only thing it has going for it is location.

Hi mkmiceli, I do not know how to respond to your list, because much of what you expected are services we do not offer, bellmen and concierge is not services we advertise or you pay for. So to give us a low score based on this is really not fair. It is correct the reception is located at the end of our bar, but all employees working for us is all over 20 years and the fact that you feel that they look younger should not impact your review. The front office is manned 24/7, one bartender during the hours the bar/restaurant is open and multiple waiters and chefs. Coffee/ tea is found in the restaurant, free of charge for all our guests 24/7, the sheets are changed every second day, not every day - this is to try and reduce our climate footprint, and toiletries are changed when empty. It looks to me that you would be more happy at a 5 star hotel. Which we are not, nor you pay for. I wish you the best of luck in your future hotel stays and a great summer when the time comes! Regards Carsten J

Early checkin was a success, and the bed was simply amazing! We tend to be proponents of firm beds and worries about this one being too soft. Absolutely not! It was like sleeping in a cloud that was perfectly firm everywhere needed. Breakfast buffet was superior and allowed me to realize that I did not want to buy caviar in a tube:). Fresh OJ, Fried eggs—or hard boiled or soft, amazing bread—it was all good. Complimentary coffee and tea kept us alert in the afternoons. Kitchen closes at 10pm sharp so eat earlier if you are so inclined.
