There are several Scandic hotels in Bergen. We stayed in 2 of them. The Scandic Strand Hotel was absolutely awful. The website shows clean, and relatively modern simple rooms that were recently renovated. THESE ARE NOT THE ROOMS YOU GET!!! The average price of the rooms is around $250-$300/night. The lobby of the hotel seems nice enough and was recently renovated, however, by the time you make it up to the corridor of the rooms, the stench of an old and tired hotel hits you. When we opened the door of the room, we were truly shocked. The window of the room was left open, because they clearly knew how awful it smelled. The room was obviously a smokers room, despite the fact we had requested the opposite. The bathroom had a dirty shower curtain with just a drain in the floor - no shower tray. The smell in the room was so awful, that we had to sleep with the windows completely open, and even then were not able to sleep because of the smell. The only positive thing I have to say is that when we complained to the staff, they gave us the room for free because the hotel was fully booked. It turns out that although the hotel gives the impression that it has been renovated, it is only the lobby and restaurant of the hotel, and the top floor which has family-size rooms. Beware of mis-representation of hotel rooms in Norway in general. Hotels often give the impression the rooms are one thing, and by the time you arrive, you find out you are paying an arm and leg for something that is COMPLETELY different than what you though you were getting.
