“Perfectly happy here”
Reviewed 25 August 2011

I stayed at the Best Western Hotell Hordaheimen for two nights. The room was tiny, but Bergen is such a fabulous place, you will not want to spend time inside your room anyway. Even in the pouring rain (for the entire time I was there,) I explored Bergen by foot and found it absolutely stunning, fun, compact, energetic, and comfortable.

The location of the hotel was great…a short walk from the train station, not right in the fish market area, but a stone’s throw away. I felt completely safe both at the hotel and wandering around the city alone.

The breakfast was pretty good – basic, but enough to get you through a good part of the day without fainting. Also, there is a make-your-own-waffle ‘bar’ for a few hours between lunch and dinner. It was random, but a nice perk in a country where food can be pretty expensive. Another perk – the free wireless.

I would definitely return to this hotel if I were lucky enough to find myself in Bergen ever again.

Good hotel, nice room, friendly & helpful staff. My room was in first floor, just above the street behind the hotel which was abit noisy, but otherwise ok.

I stayed here with my husband for a long weekend at the end of June. We arrived after midnight but did not experiance any problems with check-in. Room was good, I think it was a deluxe room. Furnishing was modern and I loved the reclining leather chairs with footstool. There was a mini bar fixed on the wall, not very efficient at keeping things cold. Bath room was OK but the supplied toiletries consisted of liquid soap near the hand basin and body wash/shampoo in the shower. There was tea and coffee making facilities and also an iron and ironing board. Problems with the room, no drawers or shelves, only hanging space for clothes. Room hot because there was no control over the radiator, window didn't open either. We were supplied with a fan which we used for most of the timw we were in the room. Breakfast was quite good, certainly enough to give you a good start to the day. Position was good, a few minutes from the Fish Market but away from the crowds. Hotel was pretty good value for Bergen and we would probably stay there again. They just need to sort out the temperature control in the room.

Had booked room at this hotel at bestwestern.com a couple of weeks ago.

At checkin 7 pm, receptionist claimed that it was overbooked. I was offered alternative accomodation at different BW hotel more out of downtown. I rejected the offer referring to valid booking and we discussed back and forth. After referring to my GCC Platinum status, hotel had a room for me afterall.

Extremely unprofessional - I have never experienced this anyware in the world ever !!!

Room however was in good condition and modern.

Did not like that windows were not possible to open as it was very warm.

Free WIFI was excellent having very good speed and being stable.

Breakfast being somewhat below average in Norway at this kind of hotels.

Checkout was fast and did receive apologize for the "issue" at checkin.

I would not recommend anyone to stay at this hotel as you cannot really tell you will actually be able to checkin ! Better to stay away and go for other nearby options.

Hotel well situated nearby the main sights. Bergen is absolutely worth a visit. Hotel unfortunately not very good. Roomtemperature hot on a summers day, as no window could be opened. Room small. Everything in the hotel is on the small side. Breakfast area not worthy of a hotel of this level. Small, crowded, not very cosy.
Facilities in the room not worth mentioning

We had booked the Augustin next door but had to be moved here on arrival due to "leaking rooms". Both these hotels are on a quiet side street adjacent to one of the main shopping streets in Bergen and convenient for the central sights. This was my first Best Western in Scandinavia but I stay in them quite a lot in the UK and know that the brand is no guarantee of quality. Overall, I'd say that this is a fairly average Best Western and it wouldn't be my choice if ever we returned to Bergen.

We had a decent sized room on the fifth floor with a sofa, easy chair, desk and a large flat screen TV. It was Kr4.50 for 24 hours for wifi although you could have connected a laptop by cable for free. No aircon in the room (still being fitted apparently) but there was an aircon controller on the wall that did nothing to control the noisy fan that blew all night and disturbed my sleep. There was a bizarre wall-mounted fridge with sliding cover.

The bed was comfortable but the pillows were a bit on the thin side and not of very good quality. In fact, none of the furniture was particulary good quality and the room screamed "budget hotel"! The buffet breakfast was OK and had a good selection of fish and different types of bread. There was nothing to cover the bread with though so it was unhygenic with other guests grasping the loaves when slicing them.

We'd booked The Augustin on a discounted rate with the Fjord Pass and were obviously charged the same price. In comparison with other hotels we stayed at in Norway, it wasn't bad value for money.
