This hotel's best feature - location - is probably also its worst feature. The noise from the street below was intolerable from my room on the 3rd floor (even with windows closed). The front desk staff was not helpful when I asked for help finding a pharmacy open on Sunday. Fortunately the local tourist brochure noted a pharmacy near the bus station that was open. Generally this was a fine 2-3 star, standard Scandinavian hotel.
General advice - most shops in Norway, particularly in smaller towns like Bergen, are closed on Sunday. Keep this in mind if planning a short trip to Bergen, I recommend spending time there on a weekday or Saturday if you want to shop and see sights (museums, etc have limited hours on Sunday).
