“If you have to take an early flight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

Positive: Walking distance to the airport, only one in Bergen. Nice room with a view to the runway. There were egg&bacon at 4 in the morning for breakfast, i did not expect that.

Negative: The restaurant is connected to the lobby. There was strange and irritating music. The Clarion hotels have an very "eco-friendly" approach. This means that you sometimes walk in total darkness because of electricity savings. Some noise from airplanes.

A curiosity: The hotel have forbidden all form of "hanky panky television"..

Two nights at the Clarion BGO and very happy with choice. Right on terminal so great for early morning departures. Staff always helpful. The restaurant menu is a little short on choice but the food was excellent. As is common in Scandinavia, food and drink is pricey compared to UK. About 25 mins to Bergen by car or transfer coaches nearby.

This hotel is perfectly positioned for those who need to catch an early flight, the welcome at reception was very warm, and the room was spacious and comfortable. It all started to go wrong when we went to the restaurant. The 'manager', or at least the man who seemed to be nominally in charge managed to lose our order, and even after he had come back and taken it again, nothing appeared for another 45 minutes. as we had only ordered one course because we wanted a quick supper before an early flight, this was frustrating. eventually some distinctly average food arrived, and then when we tried to get the bill, our so called manager/waiter was nowhere to be seen. We eventually found him chatting away to the receptionist. We were clearly not pleased with what had happened, and to be fair he apologised and made a deduction from the bill. Nevertheless, the service was appalling, and we noticed that we were not the only people who were annoyed and angry at this man's appallingly slovenly approach to his customers and to his responsibilities. I should add that nothing that happened was the fault of the young and obviously inexperienced waitress who was trying her best despite the incompetence and indifference of her boss.

Visited recently for a short meeting, and decided to come a bit early to enjoy the hotel the night before. Wasn't able to try the spa since the couple in teh hot tub when I peeked in didn't look like they wanted company but I did try the restaurant. Appetizer soup was recommended and was okay (lukewarm like it had just been nuked) and was missing its garnish. I pointed it out and discovered it was discounted on the tab when I paid, a nice touch. The main course was quite good, a hanger steak with mushrooms.

Breakfast was really excellent. I especially liked the orange juicing machine and the spicy smoothies, and the coffee was better than the average slop that Norwegian hotels usually offer. Fruit was properly fresh, and for the gluten-free people I'm sure the separate gluten free area with its own toaster would be appreciated.

The room was excellent and comfortable with the HUGEST pillows I've ever seen in a room, and the lighting and workspace was adequate for my needs. Would have been nice to have a desk lamp instead of overhead spotlight though- I loathe overhead lights in hotel rooms if at all possible to avoid. Bathroom was spotless but I missed the bathmat- it's rather convenient to have something on the floor to absorb post-shower footprints.

Finally, the meeting facilities were very convenient and the front desk helped me out of a printer related problem quickly and with a smile. Internet connection is fast and reliable and the meeting room technology worked without a hitch. Also was great to be underway so quickly after the meeting was over, with the airport so close and the arrivals/departures on display in the hotel lobby.

I have stayed here several times commuting to and from the oil rigs, the staff are all lovely and friendly and make you feel welcome.
Ideal location for the airport as 2 min walk away.
Being where it is there isn't much option for eating unless you grab a sandwich from the airport, the food is quite terrible, the menu is small and doesn't seem to change.
They have 4 options on the snack side and 4 options on the main courses, I've eaten most of it and its not that good, very stodgy and not much effort put in. Breakfast isn't great either.
The kitchen lacks inspiration and its a pity as everything else with the hotel is A1.
You do get a slight aviation fuel scent in the rooms facing the runway but I've smelt it in other airport hotels.
Rooms are really quiet.
I only stay here because of the location and it is 300nok dearer a night than the ones 2k away.

It's at the airport, and that's 30-40 min from city center. Still, it's one of my favourites. Big and great bed, clean, super breakfast, love the interior and design, frendly staff. Just great! And I like the view as well, the airport runway :)
Everytime I'm on a business trip in Bergen, this hotel is my first choice!

My husband and I were going to Norway for a weekend trip in Fjords, we arrived Bergen quite late on Friday night (arrival time at 23:30), and this hotel provides us the perfect spot for resting our head as it's literately 5 minutes walk from the arrival hall to the hotel lobby with no exposure to rain! (it was a rainy night!)
The receptionist at the lobby was very nice and friendly, the hotel facilitates was great - nicely decorated, clean, stylish and free WIFI everywhere. The breakfast in the morning was one of the best we've ever encountered in Europe.
There is also 7-11 that opens round the clock with hot food (hot dog of course!) and all essential items in case you need them!

It's definitely perfect if you just want to stop by the airport!
