We stayed for 4 nights at Clarion Hotel Bryggen, when we first arrived our room wasn't ready (we did arrive early so this was expected) we told we leave our bags in an unlocked conference room, when we returned later the new staff at least looked horrified by this.
They attempted to give us a twin room when we had booked a double (apparently their reception system showed our booking as a twin), we booked directly with Clarion so there was no excuse, I had noticed other reviews mentioning this which is why I booked directly to attempt to avoid the confusion.
The rooms are basic with plenty of space, but no drawers or wardrobe to unpack any clothes, only 3 coat hangers which have to used for winter coats.
Room was very hot at all time, only way to cool it down was to open the window.
Bathroom floor ended up wet all over after a shower.
Only tea and coffee is in the foyer, that is nothing but mini bar in the room.
Rooms in this hotel have to be locked when you exit, the magnetic stripe room keys have 2 stripes 1 side unlocks, the other side locks, if you don't lock after you leave your room will be unlocked, this was not explained until we complained that the room wouldn't lock.
On Saturday night there is a 3am night club directly across the road, though this would only impact a small number of rooms.
Breakfast buffet was good, with plenty of variety.
