We booked 2 rooms here as we heard there was less noise - our rooms were at the back of the hotel. The staff were helpful and the breakfast was great. Best continental breakfast we'd ever had!! The hotel isn't perfect - which one is - but we had a clean room, nice surroundings and were well fed each morning. I'd definitely recommend this hotel!!

Stayed: July 2014

The hotel is centrally located and the price was very reasonable, considering the city. The room was comfortable and clean. The buffet breakfast was good and abundant. This is by no no means a luxury hotel, but if you are looking for a good location and a comfortable place to stay at, it will certainly suit you.

The hotel is very well located, only a 7 or 8 minute walk from the airport bus stop (get off at Festplassen) and a similar distance from the city centre and harbourside (fishmarket, Bryggen etc.). The actual location is a quiet street so no noisy revellers at night.
Rooms and bathrooms are exactly what you would expect from a Scandic, smart, clean and comfortable without being overly lavish. Bed was extremely comfortable and bathroom spotless.
Breakfast is plentiful and varied but a bit disappointing in the variety of the cooked section - limited to scrambled eggs, mini-frankfurters, baked beans and new potatoes (???).
The public area is a bit drab and lifeless but, at the end of the day, you only pass through this space to get somewhere else. The hotel has a bar and restaurant which we didn't use but appeared to be very reasonably priced.
We booked for 2 nights on a discounted advanced booking deal direct with Scandic and got a decent price. All in all we enjoyed our stay and had nothing at all to complain about.

This is not one of Bergen´s best hotels. Its very centrally located in two buildings across the street from each other, with what appears to be very different standards from room to room. Stayed in the "one across the street", 1980´ies elavator and corridor, large room with furniture from different decades, new wooden floor, slightly dated and spartan but clean bathroom. Wellfunctioning and free WiFi. No kettle as I could find, but I also had some trouble finding the minibar hidden in the side-room so there could have been one for all I know. No air-con which would have been a problem in warmer weather with a street facing room (not much traffic but still too much noise to keep the windows open). Staff friendly but not very helpful with practical details. Surprisingly decent breakfast given the small breakfast room. Standard is not poor and would be quite alright for a low-cost budget hotel, however given the prices of Bergen hotels in the spring it is clealy substandard to what you will have to pay for it.

Room Tip: I think those giving this hotel good reviews have stayed in the main building...

Thank you for your review!

We do understand that it may be inconvenient with a hotel room located on the other side of the street, but this is the only way we are able to offer such a high number of rooms in the city centre. In 2013 we renovated a large number of our rooms. The one you stayed in is unfortunately not among them. In fall 2014 we will start renovating the remaining rooms, and step by step, we will be able to offer the same standard throughout the entire hotel.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyd our breakfast.

Welcome back to Scandic Bergen City!

Best regards

The hotel is very nice, good service, beds are good, rooms clean. The breakfast is very, very nice with lots of choices both warm and cold dishes. Freshly baked breads etc. But for this price one should expect at least this standard. Conference facilities very good also
