I stayed at the Rica Hotel Bergen in March for only one night after completing doing the Hurtigurten Classi voyage. The hotel is reasonably central and in easy walking distance of the main attractions eg musuems/art galleries, the waterfront, funicular etc. It's also one block/corner from the flybus to the airport and its has free wifi!.
The room was spacious with lots of windows (that open to let in fresh air) and lots of light. For those that like a dark room, the curtains blocked out the light making it easy to sleep. I couldn't hear my neighbours so the rooms are very sound proof!. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom wonderful with great water pressure. There is a safe and minibar. The room also had a large flat screen tv and desk. The room was very clean.
The highlight was the breakfast! It is totally amazing. There is only one another hotel in Lugano that has a breakfast to match. It had everything you could imagine and more. Wonderful shot glasses of youghurt/berries etc, they also had shot glasses of smoothies of so many varieties. There were also a large selection of fruits/juices/pastries/breads. For those wanting a hot breakfast, you will be happy with eggs, bacon, has browns, sausage etc. Also there was a large selection of teas and coffee. You are spoilt for choice and there is no way you will walk away hungry or unsatisfied.
Overall, a great room in a good location with very helpful and attentive staff and the best breakfast offering!
