I stayed at the Bergen First Marin for three nights in March 2014. This hotel has a fantastic location, one street away from the busy harbour area but just far enough away to be reasonably quiet.
The room was average and contained what one expects: a comfortable bed, clean bathroom, all that. My only quibble would be the absence of coffee and tea-making facilities. I know many hotels dispense with these but it really is a pain. I often work in my hotel room and like to carry teabags with me, so having a kettle to boil water would have been nice.
Having said this, the First Marin does at least provide complimentary tea and coffee (and hot water) to its guests in a lounge on the ground floor, which is helpful. But it does mean traversing the lifts/stairs with a cup of hot water... Just a little quibble.
The restaurant provided and excellent meal for our group and the breakfast was as lavish and as fresh and tasty as I have now come to expect from hotels in this part of the world.
The staff were friendly and spoke excellent English.
