Augustin Hotel
Ranked #17 of 49 Hotels in Bergen
Reviewed 23 January 2013

While I was in Bergen, with 4 friends, in 2010, the volcano erupted in Iceland. Our reservation did not include the 5 extra days that we had to stay before the airport reopened. The staff of the Augustin made us feel very welcome and we had such a good time in Bergen that we did not want to go home. If I go to Bergen again, I will stay at the Augustin!
There was even a clothes washer and dryer!

Hotel is at a good location. Condition of hotel is nothing great. It definitely needs some sprucing up. Breakfast is decent. If I am to visit Bergen again, most probably I will choose to stay in another hotel. Hotel Augustin will not be my choice.

Very small rooms, even by European standards. Very noisy. Decent breakfast buffet although meager compared with other hotels in the area.
First time at this hotel after several stays in Bergen; I will not be returning the next time I am in town.

I stayed herer for 1 night prior to going on a cruise.
Staff were friendly, the room large and comfortable and reasonable priced for Norway.
The breakfast was adequate. The hotel is situated close to the Fishmarket and is a 5 minute walk from the city centre.

We stayed here for two nights. The breakfast buffet is terrific - lots of fish, good hard rolls, strong coffee, nice atmosphere. Our top-floor room was fine, if small; there wasn't much room for our bags. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was tiny but functional, except for the second day, when there wasn't any hot water (which was explained by the front desk as the result of there not being many guests?). We enjoyed the complimentary waffles and tea/coffee in the afternoons. The historic cellar wine bar is worth visiting just to see it. The location is convenient enough - a 15-20 min walk to the train station, and a 5-10 minute walk to the main attractions of Bergen. We booked with a Fjord Pass and got a decent rate.

This was my second stay at Augustine. Since I got woken up by loud music on the previous stay I was doubting if I should book it again. But Bergen is a tricky town for finding decent hotels at a decent rate. I've stayed a several places and they are all over priced and rather shabby despite the 4-star rating.
So on this stay I didn't get woken up by music but the stay was nothing spectacular. Small room, very stuffy untill I'd aired it out, most rooms are in a need of refurbishment. Small bathroom, breakfast very standard and really nothing out of the ordinary. If you are aware of what you're getting when you book you won't be disapointed but if you think your £150 in Bergen will give you the same standard as £150 in the UK you'll regret your choice of city.
My tip would be to find a small B&B or lodging house rather than try a hotel in Bergen.

Stayed in Augustin hotel for 3 days. They offer perfect services. Rooms are really convenient, tidy and quiet. Hotel is situated only couple of minutes away from famous amenities of Bergen. There are lot of shops, restaurants and good places for sight seeing nearby.
