It was rather a last minute break we booked, so we didn't have a massive selection of hotels to choose from, however the Hotel Norge seemed central and was quite reasonable cost wise, so we went for it.
We stayed for 3 nights between Christmas and New Year and to be honest, Bergen was very VERY quiet. A lot of things were shut for the Christmas Holidays (including the Tourist Information) but nonetheless we found enough to do.
Stine and Andre at the hotel were absolutely great and they really went the 'extra mile' to find answers to our questions and requirements - Stine especially was a real star and kindly gave us a room upgrade (Business Class) - So thank you! Every morning we were greeted with a smile from the Breakfast team and there was always a very fresh and wide selection of foods to choose from. Probably too much! :)
The Maids who took care of the room were 1st rate and always did their 'magic' tidying up our junk! even the (Spanish?) gentleman who checked the mini-bar was lovely. As I say, people make a stay.
The Hotel is in a great location and does look a little tired in places, I try to take a pragmatic view that we perhaps all have different ideas of what is fashionable and trendy from different parts of the world, however it could do with being 'jazzed up' a bit and made to look a little more contemporary and modern.
The most important thing for me was a good, quiet nights sleep in a clean, comfortable room in a safe neighbourhood. This hotel delivered on this fully - THANKS Hotel Norge!!
