We used this hotel (booked through a cheap reservations service) to stay before and after a cruise.
It was a truly lovely experience. A warm welcome greeted us, with complimentary waffles and coffee, and our room was delightful - with views across the water towards the old sailing ship and out towards the islands. We had a small balcony, control of the heating, a comfortable bed, mini-bar and TV. Breakfast was lavish - and our luggage was stored for us to collect after a day's sightseeing and before boarding for the next stage of our trip. Staff could not have been more helpful.
We ate dinner in the hotel. The prices in Norway are steep but the quality was excellent and we had a lovely celebration, with good wine, in this famous old wine cellar.
There is a 10 minute walk to all the central attractions of this beautiful city and buses are frequent (even on public holidays). Cruise transfer buses pick up from nearby (we hopped on the one from the Clarion Admiral, 50 yards away, as we had not booked a transfer).
We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
