Basic Hotel Bergen
Ranked #31 of 49 Hotels in Bergen
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Very good location, good price by Norwegian standards. It is nothing fancy but it is clean and functional. The staff are also very helpful.

Word of advice though, do notify the hotel if you are checking in late as the reception desk is unmanned overnight. They have an afterhours system and you'd not want to miss this and sleep in the lobby!

Also, there is a nightclub below, noise is minimum but be prepared.

Stayed here for two nights in June 2014 with my sister. The room was small but nice and clean. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is also very good as it's only a few minutes walk down to the fish market and pier.

We opted for their breakfast deal at the bakery Godt Brød, and the food there was excellent. As mentioned in other reviews here there is a nightclub located beside the hotel, but as our room was on the 5th. floor we did not hear any music and only heard the occasional person.

We will definitely consider this hotel when we next return to Bergen.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the top floor

We booked this hotel because, even though it was expensive, it was the cheapest hotel we could find in Bergen. The room was nothing fancy - it was small, clean and had a decent bed.

That said, the hotel is just a couple short blocks not only from most of the tourist attractions, but also the rail station. We were happy to be able to walk everywhere, avoiding extra transportation costs.

The staff was very helpful and friendly and let us check in early. They also recommended good eats and activities during our stay.

If you are on a budget (or just don't want to spend a fortune on a hotel room in Bergen), this is not a bad place to stay. You won't find luxury here, but you will get a good night's sleep. Which is probably all you really need. Just set your expectations appropriately.

Room Tip: The elevator seems to have broken, so choosing a lower floor will help you from having to drag your...

Hotel was very clean with chic decor (paintings, vases, etc.) -- quite a nice surprise since the neighbourhood was not too spiffy. Great location, large room (#303) with two windows that open (onto the street). Nice lighting, chairs, double bed and large bathroom. Hangars and coat hooks -- handy on rainy days. Nice staff at front desk and easy proximity to some nice walking -- parks / gardens, university, Fish Market, funiculaire, stores, etc.Beware the noise from the street level disco -- can certainly affect your sleep quality !

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the back and no higher than the fourth floor unless your baggage is very li...

Ok hotel but extremely noisy during the night due to a pub/disco beside the hotel. Good lactation. Lift only until fourth floor and five floors with rooms (last floor without lift). No breakfast. Nice hotel for 1 or 2 nights.

Rooms are small but clean and well maintained. Great location, easy walk from train station and bus stop for the airport. But the noise from the disco... unbelievably bad. On the second floor the vibration was so bad there were waves in a cup of water. The entire room shook. Be prepared.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper floors.
