We enjoyed 3 nights at this hotel in October 2013. The position is fantastic - right in the middle of Bryggen, the most historic part of Bergen. Don't pay for a taxi from the airport as we did - it costs 500NOK (~£50) - The Flybussen (airport bus) is great, runs every 15 mins to/from the city centre, stops a 3 mins walk from the hotel, and only costs 90NOK each. The room we booked was described as a Junior Suite - don't expect it to be the size of a similarly described room in an International hotel! (I commented on this and was offered a larger room from night 2, but we opted not to spend time from our holiday moving rooms!) However, the bathroom was nice and modern and the room had lovely wooden beam features and a sofa area. Breakfast is buffet style, lots to choose from. This hotel is right in the middle of an area of several pubs, clubs, and bars - some noise can be heard from the street until the early hours. Overall, we felt it was worth staying in an authentic Bryggen building rather than an international hotel - but that does come with trade-offs!
