Although the hotel décor was not to our taste and needed modernisation, we could not have asked for a better location, right on the harbour next to the bryggen houses. The choices for breakfast were brilliant, you could even make your own waffles! And the staff at the hotel were all really friendly and helpful.

Situated at the best location in Bergen. Easy to park the car. Several options to eat close by. Only disapointment was that the kitchen was closed when I arrive late at the hotell at 21:30. I will stay at the hotell again.

A really short walk from Bryggen and everytime else you need to see in Bergen. Very young and friendly staff. Spacious rooms but you can see that the hotel had a lot of visitors until 2016. ;-) Its definitely not dirty but used. We paid 265€ for 4 days/3nights for 2 people including breakfast. Breakfast is exceptional: very clean and...

Friendly staff, great location- near excellent dining, shopping, walking and transportation. We stayed with our two 12 year olds and they were thrilled with the larger room (because it was 2 rooms with 1 entrance door). Breakfast was great as well.

Hotel location is first choice. Within walking distance to many attractions. Great harbour view from our rooms. Great breakfast buffet. Negative point was that no towels were available in room and it took some convincing of the staff to get some.

What a great hotel in a very area of Bergen. We paid extra for an upgraded room and were not disappointed at all, a very nice room overlooking the harbor. The service was from all the staff was superb and breakfast was also very good, We had a lovely time in Bergen and made much better with this first class...

The hotel was primarily picked from location - and we were not disappointed. In addition - nice large room, good breakfast buffet. The view could be better, but on the sixth floor (our of seven) we did manage to see above the buildings on the other side of the court-yard and see mountains
