Citybox is a modern economy hotel with low prices. Our rooms are cheap because we keep our running expenses down, while still offering our guests what they really need: a simple and stylish room with a delicate bathroom, comfortable bed, a good chair, a desk and a place for hanging your clothes. Wireless broadband is available free of charge throughout the hotel. Citybox combines simplicity with comfort and low prices. The hotel is located in the centre of Bergen, less than 5 minutes walking from Bergen station. If you want to spend your money on something other than a minibar and room service, then Citybox is the place for you. Bergen is full of bars. Why do you need one in your hotel room?

This is not the same "excellent" rating that I would give to a luxury resort with all of the amenities. Rather, I am evaluating Citybox Bergen on providing exactly the experience it advertised: a budget-friendly option in a notoriously pricey part of the world, and

For a 3-star hotel, I would expect to clean at least one time our room while staying there for 4 days. Nobody changed the sheets, the towels or threw out the trash. Also, it was too noisy to sleep due to the ventilation which we could not control and the vacuum cleaner they put

Dear StavrosD1924, We are so sorry to read that you did not enjoy your stay with us! We understand that our concept is not for everyone as we know we are different. We are totally honest about what we try to do, and we remove/reduce and minimize to keep our running costs low - and in return we offer a lower price than most of our competitors. Regarding the noice in your room, we do hope that you spoke to our Citybox Host so that they were able to help you with this? To be able to have enough rooms ready for check-in at 15:00, we do have to start cleaning at 8:00, but we are very sorry if we disturbed you! We are also very sorry if other guests very being noicy in the hallways, we always try to maintain a quiet environment at the hotel, but we do rely on our guests to tell us immediately if there is a disturbance, so that we can take action right away. As mentioned before, we totally understand that our concept is not for everyone, and we are aware that we are different from most hotels - and we are actually proud of it! But stripped down simple and modern solutions is not for everyone, and if you prefer the old fashioned type of hotels - we can relate! Sometimes you want the full service experience, but unfortunately that solution is also more expensive! :) Thanks for your feedback though, and we do hope your visit to Bergen was an otherwise pleasant one. Best regards Citybox Bergen

Dear Helen O, There are three different options to choose from when you'd like to go from the airport and in to the city centre: 1. Taxi - costs approx 450NOK, takes 20min and they are standing just outside of the exit. 2. SAS Flybus (shuttle bus) - costs 125,- one way and takes 20-25min, when you buy the ticket on the bus, but it's cheaper if you but the ticket in one of the machines in front of the bus stop. The buses are also just outside of the arrival hall. 3. Bybanen (light rail) - the cheapest option, it costs 37NOK when you buy it in the SKYSS app or in the machines next to the stop. However, it takes 45min, so it's not the best option if your in a hurry.

Hi Is there a kettle in all of the rooms?
Hi, We're sorry for the terribly late reply! No, we do not have kettles in the rooms, but we have them available at the Host office on the first floor, so if you come by there, we will lend you one to bring with you to your room :)

Hi Is there a kettle in all of the rooms?
The rooms are very nice and modern but there isn’t a kettle to use. There is a very nice “kitchen” for everyone to use inside the entrance to the hotel. Also, a very convenient supermarket right across the street.

"Many rooms don't have any view of the city, room 231, for example, had a view to the back of a shop."
"Pay for only what you need"
"Look at the various listings for the hotel on various sites to get an idea of the rooms."
"ask for a room on a high floor for a view over rooftops. These rooms are also quiet."
"Ours was in the back. Not sure if all are quiet but ours was."
