First Hotel Marin is always my first choice in Bergen. Nice people, best service and very nice and large rooms. In the middle of the center and close to "FLØIEN". Great view over entire Bergen. Excellent restaurant.

Room Tip: al. rooms are good. but you can try top floor (more expensive) but best view over harbour.

My room was booked by the cruise line. It was a small and basic room. There was a single bed, desk and bathroom. The windows did not open and the room was quite warm. Turning the thermostat down did not help. To get to the room, there were stairs to go to the elevator which was difficult with the suitcases (there is no help with luggage). The breakfast was ok. There was one restaurant in the hotel that was pricey but food was good. It was an easy walk to the water, shops and other restaurants.

Pase un mes en este hotel y soy alérgica.I spent a month in this hotel And I am alergic. Todo allí tenía polvo fue horrible. Everything there has dust,it was horrible. Casi nunca reponían el jabón. They dont change the soap very frequently. El desayuno esta bien. Breakfast is OK. Si estas en plantas bajas oyes ruido de la calle porque hay dos discotecas enfrente. If you are in th lower floors you can herido noises from the tío pubs in front of the hotel. Lo unísono bueno,la situación. One golf thing is the situation. La cama es horrible para dormir. The bed is very uncomfortable.

Room Tip: Higuera floors are les noisy

Stayed here for a few days last week. After booking the hotel some time ago we heard from others that this hotel was no good. Lots of bad things but we will stay here next time we visit Bergen. We had ordered a double room and got a spacious one with sitting area ,desk, minibar , coffee and tea maker. Huge bed which was very comfy. Huge windows that had sight of Fløien and let in the sun. A new and nice bath with products to use. Very happy for the wooden flooring instead of carpets. It was clean. And the best thing was that they did the rooms very fast every morning fresh new towels and products. A friendly staff. And the breakfast was very good. The staff kept it full all the time. Did not miss a thing there. It was a very popular hotel for tourist specially Japanese ones. And it was very close to all the sights. Around the corner is Bryggen and the other way was Fløien. The fish market just a few minutes walk. A walk in the old art of Bergen is easily done just around the corner. The only bad thing was the wifi it came and went all the time.

Due to our cruise ship schedule we needed a room before regular check-in time. The reception staff found us a room at 0900 in the morning. What a convenience! We had courteous help printing out airline boarding passes and making connection to the free WiFi network.

Our room was spacious, quiet, and clean. Breakfast was excellent as usual, even though we came in late. Wait staff were efficient and friendly.

This is a business hotel, not a resort. Expect efficiency and the kind of service to make a comfortable stay and then move on.

We will stay here again whenever in Bergen.
