We really loved this little 37 room hotel run by two brothers. The location could not have been better. Right next door to a museum and steps from everything in the old part of Bergen. My room was on the top floor and was the one featured in their brochure with a giant winch in the bathroom going back to the days when this was a warehouse. They had a very nice breakfast included. They stored our bags for our late departure for the ferry. Expensive by American standards ($236) but not by Norwegian standards.

We chose this hotel as it was one of the few decent rated hotels that seemed to accommodate children. If you need, a travel cot can be provided in the room at no extra cost.

Staff: very friendly and an asset to the hotel. Nothing was too much. We were on the 4th floor which is accessible by lift to the 3rd floor then by stairs. As we had our toddler and luggage we were offered a different room if we decided that the stairs were just too challenging with baby. This was a very nice offer and most places we have stayed in wouldn’t have cared. I had also been told on the phone about the mobility situation before booking.

General: The building has been renovated and it has been done very well. You get the perfect balance of the traditional with contemporary, you are not in any other standard bland hotel room, you are in a hotel room in Norway and you really feel that. Exposed beams above the bed made it feel very much like you might be in a cabin and certainly started off our trip on a very good note. Use of wall paper and soft furnishings throughout the hotel is tastefully done.

Location: The hotel is located just by the wharf, where the fish market and world heritage sites are. The location couldn’t get much better as far as being centrally located in Bergen. It is 20-30 minutes drive from the airport. There is a bus stop nearby for the busses to and from the airport, local bus stop just across the road and Mount Floyen and the Funicular (Floibanen) is a 2 minute walk away and several “7 eleven” convenience stores within 2-5 minutes’ walk. There are restaurants and bars nearby, and night clubs…

Room: This was booked as a double. It was two beds pushed together which isn’t ideal for a married couple but having looked at the width of the stairs, I doubt anything bigger could get up there so I think they are limited by the building. The room was a little on the small side, even without the travel cot but for 4 days you can live with it. Room has a mini bar, TV, kettle with cups and team and coffee. Strange fact: some of the sockets are wired to the central light switch which means that if you turn off the light (to sleep) then your phone will not charge if it is plugged into certain sockets. There were 2 very small windows that you could open for ventilation and that also provided light. Really if you are making the most of your trip you won’t spend much of the day in the room but this might bother some people, if you want a room with a view don’t ask for room 452. For the safey conscious, note if there was a fire and the stairs were blocked you are in trouble as there is no window to get you out of by fire engine ladder...Back to the night clubs. We saw 3 within 2 minutes of the hotel. We stayed from a Saturday to Wednesday. We were woken up at around 2am by a lot of noise, it wasn’t overly loud but if you were nearer to the ground (i.e. on floors 1-3) it would have been pretty bad. We had a room at the back of the hotel so I think rooms at the front would be even worse. Our toddler did wake up as well but she went back off as it subsided. Then again at 4am. Drumming. The hotel clearly recognises this issue and has taken the comments on board as earplugs are provided. To be honest I didn’t need them but my husband was more disturbed than me. I was very tired though. The problem with earplugs would be that if you have a child, you might not hear them crying/wake up, you may also miss if any alarms go off around you (unless the sprinklers pointing to the bed go off automatically if the fire alarm is activated) so some may not feel comfortable using them. But there isn’t a lot the staff can do about it so your choice is to not stay at the hotel if you know that any noise will bother you. There was no noise on the other nights apart from other hotel guests. Walls are quite thin.

The bathroom was spectacular, lovely roll top bath and unique features of the building preserved. It was a little on the cold side and there is no heater/towel rail in the bathroom but it was very cold time of year. It didn’t bother us massively as if you open the bathroom door it lets the heat circulate from the room in. There is a separate large shower which was nicely tiled. Only criticism is it didn’t have an extractor fan or window that you could open so steam from the shower would have to be let into the bedroom to evaporate. There is a sewing kit, dental kit, shaving kit and vanity kits provided which you do not get in a lot of other hotels in the same price bracket.

Breakfast: Buffet style. The only area where improvement could be sought. There is a choice of cheese, cold cuts, fruits, 3 types of cereal, bread/toast, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, yoghurt, cold baked beans, sausages (sometimes), bacon (sometimes) and croissants (sometimes). Pretty uneventful. You can make your own coffee using their bean to cup Jura coffee machine. Eggs were lukewarm. Fruit varied in quality/quantity from day to day. Something about it just didn't seem to satisfy me, the look and feel of it. To improve perhaps some porridge, hot chocolate, pancakes. Even if they just aried it each few days. Had the breakfast been better, this could have gotten 5 stars.

We would stay here again if we were going to stay in a hotel in Bergen again. We saw the location of other hotels that we had looked at and agreed that we found the best one. Most are located near busy streets so if noise is a really issue either get a very high rise hotel at stay at the top or stay outside of Bergen.
If you are going to hire a car there is car parking in a paying local car park at the back of the hotel. Like everything else in Norway it comes at a cost and for our 4 day trip was over £100 (NOK 200 per day). You might want to consider this when looking at other hotels that have free parking. Parking in Bergen is not easy, like any other tourist city so you should use a public car park.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper get a room at the top of the hotel away from the street. If you have mobility issues, get a room on floors 1 to 3 (but note the potential for noise).

The location of this hotel is great, right in the centre of Bergen. We stayed here on our honeymoon and paid a bit extra for a superior double. The room was nice and bed very comfortable. Only downside though was unfortunately that we had a noisy air conditioning unit just outside the room. This did go off at about 10 but was a nuisance and would have expected not to have this kind of issue when paying for a superior double room.
Otherwise though, the breakfast was good and staff friendly. On the whole, a very unique hotel and had a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Check the room isn't above the air con unit!

Following on from a relaxing cruise with Hurtigruten on the Finnmarken my wife and I stopped off in Bergen for 4 days on our return at the end of February 2013..

The ridiculous prices aside, Bergen is a beautiful, relaxing place. In fact I'd say it's my favourite city (I've loads more to review, city wise, when I have the time, but this is up there).

The hotel is literally 30 meters from the harbour and all of 200 meters from the amazing Bryggen. The world famous fish market is 100 meters away, now you see the central thing is exactly that.

The hotel doesn't look much from the outside and the entrance is narrow. The booking in procedure was very informal and relaxed, I like that, I liked that a lot, so many hotels have a way too obsequious way about them.

Lovely, plush, narrow corridors led us to our suite at the rear of the hotel. A good 40+ meter sq room with a good sitting area with a leather sofa, wood is the theme, it should be since the building is so old and part of the attached museum. An excellent bathroom and very comfortable bed made for 3 very relaxing nights.

Breakfast was not the best, a lovely room and really clean kitchen area but self serve and not stocked when items ran out. A choice of fruit and a couple of meats, tepid soft boiled eggs (awful) but the croissants were crispy if you got up early enough to get one. There was also a few cheeses and vegetables to choose from. The fatty bacon and small sausages were average although the coffee machine was good as were the fruit juices.

The bar was comfortable but I have to say that £10 sterling for a large beer is hard to swallow but all of Norway is a similar price. Bergen will never be a place for Stag parties, thank god.

I will review other places later next week but I would certainly recommend this hotel and a visit to Bergen will not disappoint any discerning traveler

Room Tip: The suites at the rear are very good but well over £200 per night.

Located within the old houses of Bryggen, down in the port area of Bergen, this really is as good as reviewers on here have noted.

How they managed to inter-grate such a wonderful hotel into the old beam work and rooms of the old houses without either a: compromising the quality or b: destroying the character of the building really is testament to the owners dedication.

Added into this that all of the amenities are of 5 star quality, the rooms are gorgeous, first class beds, beautiful furniture, tastefully decorated but with high quality modern touches , beautiful bathrooms with antique bath tubs combined with a modern shower and on top of this ,really professional service from all staff. This hotel could do no wrong in my eyes.

Bergen is expensive city to stay but this hotel gives you the value for money that you don't expect, prices are high but you really get the quality to go with it.

Had Dinner on one night and breakfast on 3 days and every time the food was first class, especially dinner where the seafood was unbelievably good, again, its not cheap at all but the quality is so high you feel like it's value for money.

We loved this place and would not hesitate to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for a room up in the roof spaces, you have an eaved ceiling so a bit of space is compromised but the rooms are so beautiful its worth it
