Location: the hotel is within walking distance of the Tourist Information Centre (buy Bergen Card and change money); Shops; Restaurants; supermarket; and all city centre museums and galleries. It is also close to public transport and one of the airport buses stops – literally – right outside it.
Staff: without exception very friendly and helpful.
Bedroom: a reasonable size with – effectively – twin beds. There was a small desk; a small mini-bar (not suitable for putting your own purchases in). There was a table fan in the cupboard for use in the summer.
There were two armchairs – including an excellent recliner – plus an iron and ironing board and tea/coffee maker. The TV had Eurosport; BBC World; etc.
However, there were some demerits:
• Limited Clothes Storage Space: staying for five nights it would have been nice to have had some shelves on which to place my clothes;
• Main Floor: Laminated floorboards which, however carefully you tread, creak like a Hammer Horror film – I just hope that the people underneath cannot hear it; and
• Internet: free and fast but with masses of pop-ups which proved very troublesome to get rid of.
Bathroom: a good size with a large shower unit and a heated floor.
Hotel Restaurant: great meals – large and meaty - but why is it closed Friday and Saturday nights?? Why does it shut at 7pm?
Breakfast: there was a good selection of items for breakfast – including assorted fish.
Bergen: finally a few words on Bergen itself. For somewhere that gets 90”+ of rain a year you think that they would have an effective drainage system but there are puddles everywhere – including beside the pavement for careless drivers to splash the unwary. At cross roads there is often only three crossing places. If you want to cross the 4th one you have to cross roads three times – such waiting about in the pouring rain is not pleasant. File the opening times of museums etc. given in the guide book under fiction – as they will not be open when they say they are. For Scandinavia, we were both surprised at the amount of litter and graffiti.
