Compared to other Norwegian hotels of similar price it's not really any more basic. They don't clean the rooms on short stays - unless you ask - but that's no problem. The room had a kettle, but no tea or coffee (there is a machine in the stairwell) and no beakfast in the hotel. Reception isn't always manned, but staff respond quickly when called. But otherwise similar to most hotels in the price range.
Room spacious and clean. Staff very helpful. I left my bag overnight for a side trip to the fjords and it was waiting in my new room on my return.
It's a little way from the centre (about 10 minutes walk) but for me well placed between the railway station and the Hurtigruten terminal. Supermarket and pub just across the road.

Decent bed, nice shower, central location, small price and no service at all... That's the proposal... And they deliver it perfectly...

Good sized room and great location for exploring Bergen but double glazing is poor so could hear music from local bar all night. Hotel happy to look after bags after checking out next day which was useful.

We stayed in a double room for 3 nights at Basic Hotel Bergen over the 17th of May festivities. Check-in was a breeze; we were even able to check in and get our room early! Payment is due upon arrival. The front door is always locked and guests are provided a key card in order to enter the hotel.

The location is great. Central Bergen is quite small and most areas such as Bryggen, Fisketorget, the train station, and the Floibanen Funnicular are accessible on foot.

The hotel is fairly new. The décor inside is “mod cute” with inspirational sayings throughout the walls and inside the rooms. Our room was extremely clean and of a decent size. Amenities included a hair dryer, tea and coffee-making facilities, water kettle, a small refrigerator, and fresh towels. Liquid soap in a dispenser is provided inside the bathroom.

Everything about the room was great, except maybe that there seemed to be a lack of power outlets. There was only one easily accessible in our room. We found another behind the bed, but had to move around the furniture a little in order to access it.

Coffee is also available on every floor for 10 kroner.

It sometimes got very noisy outside, but that may have had something to do with the holiday. There is also a sports bar on the corner down the street that can get loud at night.

I think the only reason this hotel calls itself “basic” is that towels and sheets are not changed every day, but that is about it. (Room cleaning and fresh towels/sheets are available for an additional fee upon request.)

In summary, this is a wonderful hotel. It may have the word “basic” in its name, but it is definitely a great hotel with great staff and great prices and should be highly considered when looking for accommodations in Bergen.
