We chose the Klosterhagen because of the reviews and it was the perfect pre-cruise for our Hurtigruten departure the next day. The one somewhat disadvantage of this hotel is that there is NO LIFT!
Apparently I had missed that detail in my research, however, since I've learned to pack for the overnight's in the smaller suitcase, we were able to leave the larger suitcase in the luggage room - especially since our room was on the third floor and the spiral staircase was somewhat interesting to negotiate as it was.
The staff was delightful and VERY helpful throughout our stay, however when we asked for something quick and easy for dinner, she recommended a little place just a couple of doors down that appeared to be a full on 'dinner' restaurant. We continued walking and found a GREAT little Kebab place around the corner, Shawarma, that was FABULOUS - we got our kebabs and waddled back to the hotel. I thought it odd that when we returned, she had never even heard of the place!
Our room (301) was on the upper floor, so it had a slanted ceiling with windows that were in the roof - the room was a tad stuffy, so we opened the window just a crack, which was just enough, even though it was rather brisk (Oct. 26th). The floor in the bathroom was heated (YEA!) although we did think it odd that there was no shower curtain, even though there was a curtain rod. We got a GREAT night's sleep after two days of traveling (but of course a Tylenol PM and ear plugs helped too).
Breakfast was homemade everything - WARM breads (YUM), yoghurts, jams, even orange juice was fresh squeezed! I wish I could say that the coffee was homemade too, but apparently everyone has gone to those coffee machines, which DO make a good cup of coffee - it's just not the same as having a fresh cup of coffee though.... alas.
The hotel is VERY conveniently located and just a quick walk to the Fish market and old parts of Bergen. The property had apparently been refurbished into a hotel just a couple of years ago from having been something else, but it was VERY nice and except for the no lift thing, I would recommend this hotel again.
