We stayed 4 nights, having booked a Standard room (1495 NOK/night), requesting a Sea View. I never usually change rooms, but we had a look at three different rooms before deciding to pay more for a Business Class Room (400NOK/night extra). The Standard rooms were OK if you like views over gravel pits or brick walls and walking down long depressing corridors. What a mistake we made staying here, as for 240NOK ($40) extra we could have stayed at the Clarion Collection Havnekontoret, which is next door, shares the same enviable location on Bryggen in Central Bergen, has many more sea view rooms and is generally a nicer, more luxurious hotel with romantic well furnished rooms. At the Radisson you get Scandinavian, Ikea style rooms, a lobby full of bus groups, and endless waits to talk to reception. Also the rooms have an automatic mini bar that charges the minute you touch a bottle. In Bergen it rains a lot and the Radisson charges 100NOK, supposedly for charity, for an umbrella!! On the positive side the breakfast was very good, free wifi was strong and the standard of house keeping was excellent. Across the road, one gets free tea, coffee and waffles in the afternoon and a free light dinner which makes up for the additional room rate. So now you know why, when we returned to Bergen we stayed at the Havnekontoret.
