My husband and I stayed at the Clarion Hotel Bryggen for two nights in February 2014 and we would most likely stay again in the future.
Location: The hotel is in a great location! It is right next to the harbor and four restaurants are within a minute walking distance. There is also a convenience store a block over.
Room: We reserved a moderate double room and the room was pretty small, but we expected that. We asked the front reception if we could get a room with a view of the harbor (as suggested on TA), but the receptionist said there are only three rooms that have a harbor view and that you must upgrade to get one of the rooms. The three harbor view rooms were all booked anyways, so we had a room facing a small alleyway. Not too noisy in my opinion, but we were very exhausted both nights so we can't really comment on the noise. The bed was super comfortable! There was not really a closet, just a section with a metal pole and five hangers, which is more than enough for a two night stay. The bathroom is probably the only thing we didn't like. The glass shower wall moves and doesn't touch the ground, so you get water all over the bathroom floor. There was always warm water though!
Staff: The front receptionist (a young brunette woman) was very friendly and helpful! In fact, everyone in the hotel staff was nice. We had to ask for an extra towel and the room cleaning woman was more than helpful and pleasant.
Payment: I wanted to pay the room bill partly in cash (I usually do this with leftover money so I don't have to exchange it at a poor rate at the airport), but the receptionist said it would take awhile and is quite complicated to do. Just be prepared to pay the full bill by credit card or cash.
Complimentary Stuff: There is complimentary tea, coffee, and water in the lobby which my husband really enjoyed. The breakfast was delicious (and complimentary) - a HUGE spread with warm and cold food on four long buffet tables. The food and drinks were all refilled constantly.
Time to Airport: We arrived on a weekday afternoon (around 3:45 PM) and it took us approximately 25 minutes to take a taxi from the airport to the hotel. We left for the airport on a weekday morning (around 8:45 AM) and it took us less than 10 minutes to get to the airport.
