Let me preface this by saying we wanted to stay at the Clarion Admiral where we had stayed previously, but there were not enough rooms available for my group. The Augustin was well reviewed so we picked that as an alternative. The hotel is very nice and the staff quite accomodating, however....
I was supposed to share a room with my brother who is also on the trip. We had selected this option primarily because of the cost of the rooms in Bergen. When we got to the room however, the two twin beds actually ended up being two singles that were side by side - touching. I've actually seend massage tables that are wider than these beds - they were tiny. As a result I ended up getting a separate room and incurring the extra cost just to make sure to get a good nights sleep.
The rooms are clean and well appointment if a little small as they are in much of europe. The bathroom is clean and large enough for 1. The only climate control in the room is an dial for the electric radiators, not uncommon in a country that is generally not more than 80 degrees F in the summer. My room however when I opened the door was about 85 degrees and I've had to leave the windows open for a couple of hours to cool down the room. I'm guessing someone bumped the dial and accidentally turned up the heat.
The bed for being in the land of "hard beds and big breakfasts" is suprizingly comfortable. It's not as luxurious as the Admiral, but it's not a bad hotel and it's just down the street.
