We booked this hotel because, even though it was expensive, it was the cheapest hotel we could find in Bergen. The room was nothing fancy - it was small, clean and had a decent bed.
That said, the hotel is just a couple short blocks not only from most of the tourist attractions, but also the rail station. We were happy to be able to walk everywhere, avoiding extra transportation costs.
The staff was very helpful and friendly and let us check in early. They also recommended good eats and activities during our stay.
If you are on a budget (or just don't want to spend a fortune on a hotel room in Bergen), this is not a bad place to stay. You won't find luxury here, but you will get a good night's sleep. Which is probably all you really need. Just set your expectations appropriately.
