Stayed here in August 2012 with the family.
The best thing is the location, right next to Bryggen...the UNESCO World Heritage "old town/trading quarter" in Bergen. the harbor is right there as well, so the Fish Market is barely a 10 min walk at leisurely place...same distance to the Funicular and several large restaurants. To top it off, the Airport Shuttle stops right outside the door and is a viable option even if you have large bags with you.
We had a Family Room, which meant that it was the largest room we had in our Scandinavian adventure. Here was more than enough space for 3 people and several bags and the extra couch bed. The bathroom was large as well. The only issue I had was the view into an internal courtyard (would have been nice to get a harbor view) and the lack of an electronic safe in the room. The bed was 2 double beds put together, but this again is a cultural problem across the region and some how can't be helped.
As many before me have mentioned...the view from the Tower is great. It offers a unique high view of the harbor...so it's a must to get up there.
Staff was the friendliest we had in Scandinavia, always happy to help out with anything, including heavy luggage, pillows, maps, directions, etc...
The breakfast was decent and included in our room rate. Good choice of food. We also ate the Fternoon pancakes and lit evening meal a couple of times. Definitely helps in getting the budget under control.
Overall, I would stay here again, if given a chance. Although the other side of town near Old Bulls Plass seems a bit hipper.
