“Amazing hotel! ”
Reviewed May 6, 2014 via mobile

Great historic hotel - can hardly fault it. The location is excellent next to the train / coach station and 7 mins walk from the port. Room are large, tastefully decorated and the bathroom even had heated floor! The staff was polite and helful at all times. The breakfast and breakfast room were absolutelly fabulous! The hotel bar is lovely and you can enjoy free tea & coffee by the fire place. Very good internet connection throughout the hotel - helpful for planning trips around. The hotel sauna was great after walking around in cold humid Bergen.

The only downside I can think of is not having bar / restaurant service on Sundays - though common in Norway not to open restaurants, it would be great if they could inform guests in advance as some rely on having a meal there if coming late, etc.

To me, this hotel is close to perfect! It's the first time in my life I've ever entered my hotel room and been in complete awe of how spacious and beautiful it was.

The rooms very clean, the staff is always friendly and ready to help with any question, the building iteself is unique and beautiful, and the location is very practical.

A few things I love about this hotel are:

- There's a service room with microwave, washing machine and dryer, kettle, etc. Access with room key. Very nice for a longer stay, or if you've been on the road for a while. Everything free of charge.

- The TV in the room was big, and had a great picture. This is often horrible in hotels, but they've got it right.

- The beds are amazing! Just amazing! Slept like a baby!

- There are plenty of outlets wherever you may need them. At the desk, by the bed, in the bathroom. Perfect.

- This is a pretty quiet hotel. Very little shouting and noise in the hallways, or outside. Some people complain about the noise from the trains, but that's really minimal. And it's an end station, so no constant through-traffic.

- The ceilings are really high, which I like. Huge windows, and an impressive art collection. Everything is tastefully decorated in a clean, classic style. Just beautiful.

Ali in all this hotel is close to perfect. To be very picky, the little things that cost them that final star are:

- The shower curtain. I don't like shower curtains that stick to you when you shower. You know it probably stuck to quite a few people before you, and probably isn't washed between guests.

- The water pressure in the shower isn't anything to be excited about.

- There was no bathrobe. Not a big deal, but staying for a week or longer at a time, that would be a nice extra.

- After giving my towels for a wash, they only replaced half. As a woman with long hair, an extra towel is needed.

- After sleeping in and not leaving until 10 one day, my room wasn't cleaned at all that day.

- There's a gym, which is great. But it's too small, and if you want to work out after work, before it closes, you're lucky if there's a machine free at any time. Put 3 people in that room, and it's over crowded. The fact that there is a gym, though, is a huge plus!

- Wi-fi connection is unstable and very slow at times. Checking mail and stuff is fine, but e.g. Skype-calls drop constantly.

- The breakfast could definitely use some more variation, and some smoked salmon!

And the final thing, which isn't a big deal but very annoying: I got a wake-up call at 5 in the morning once, that I had not requested. That sucked.

Love the hotel, though. It should be among the top 5 in Bergen!

Cannot fault this hotel really.
The staff were good, the rooms clean and tidy, the beds comfortable too.
Our room overlooked the station, with trains coming and going from time to time, it actually took a conscious effort to wait to see a train leave, because you could not hear them, even with the window open.
Links to the sights around town were very good, as one would expect for such a central location, we were just less than 5 minutes away from local shops. We needed supplies for our train trip to Oslo, the main reason for our trip to Norway...
A quiet friendly whiskey bar, sadly did not have my favouite tipple, so I settled for a glass of Glen Ord instead.
Breakfast was buffet style, plenty of everything, sort of nordic cum continental in flavour, perfect for a day of travelling on the train.
As I was travelling with a disabled person, this was a good safe and secure place to stay

Just got back from a two night stay in this hotel, the hotel is in a great building with plenty of charm, the rooms are nice, relatively compact but functional.

The rooms do suffer from road noise and both nights I was aware of the morning traffic outside my window.

Breakfast could not be faulted, neither could the service.

All in a all a very good hotel I would happily visit again.

The Grand Terminus is located next to Bergen railway station, the hotel is very old and quite dated, I found its general appearance rather dark and typical of a city-centre hotel, my single room was adequate with a decent sized bathroom, the breakfast was fine and complimentary coffee was available all day, the reception staff were friendly & helpful. Its location is perfect for the railway station, I only stayed for 1 night and would probably of stayed nearer the waterfront had I been staying longer in Bergen

We have been last week as part of a tour party. No problems as to room. Staff very friendly if none clearly Norwegian. We would stay again but this place is close to the railway station and some few minutes walk from the centre of the city. The whisky bar is a wonder with sliding ladder in to reach some bottles, Some drinks are cheap and others not so. Their pricing is all over the place. I had a cask strength tot from an old and closed malt distillery for about 90k and had to explain to the bar person that I wished to put in my own water. At the same time a person came in and asked for a tot of the cheapest supermarket blend and was charged the same. With respect I do not think that bar staff can help anyone.

Room Tip: This is old style hotel, a little off center. No pool or spa.

Stayed for 2 nights at beginning of Hurtigerten costal voyage. Hotel has many of it's original 1920,s features, magnificent whisky bar. Room good size with usual amenities. 24hr coffee in bar. Right next to station so going on the ' Norway in a nutshell' tour from station is literally on doorstep.
