My Husband and I have just got back from our stay at The Radisson Blu Hotel Norge in Bergen. Originally we had booked to stay at the Radisson Royal hotel near the Harbour. However, they forgot to mention that the hotel was having a revamp and that the bar, restaurant and leisure facilities were closed. Nethertheless, they transferred us to the Norge.
The room was average, not 4*. It needed some updating and TLC. We overlooked the fountain outside which was very noisy and on Saturday night we found that we were surrounded by clubs and bars that went on until the early hours. It was continuous and there were lots of people singing merrily outside. If you are going to stay here on a Saturday, request a higher floor!!! The bars were closed on the Sunday and Monday nights of our stay. During the day there was continuous banging from a neighbouring room where maintenance was going on.
The general feel of the hotel is that it is not 4*. The corrdiors are drab and the hotel toilets are disgusting! The reception staff are very slow at answering the phone or coming to the desk.
However, the hotel is in a good location and if you can put up with the noise and the need of a revamp then it might be for you. The spa and swimming pool facilities are nice and there is a beauty treatment room too. The hotel bar is also good. However, customers who stay at the Royal hotel are not allowed to use these facilities while theirs are closed. How ridiculous!!!
I would not recommend this hotel to friends and family as it was one of the more expensive hotels on the Bergen list and I dont think it was worth it. I wont be staying again.
If like me, you wanted a swimming pool, the extra cost of the Radisson is not worth it...go somewhere without one, it will be much nicer!
