Augustin Hotel
Ranked #17 of 49 Hotels in Bergen
Reviewed 13 November 2009

The location is good, easy walking distance from all of Bergen's great attractions but still quiet. Rooms clean, quiet and comfortable with plenty of space. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty but, best of all, the free waffles/coffee/tea in the early evening were yummy! A real treat to relax with in the cosy lounge after a hard day's sightseeing. Free internet was a bonus. We will thoroughly recommend.

This is a friendly hotel with a relaxed atmosphere.
Staff were very helpful when we needed to book ferry online to secure best price.
Great buffet breakfast.
Nice treat was the complimentary waffles available in the lounge in the early evening, which set you up, before dinner.
Our rooms decor was a little dated. Two single beds were pushed together, which inevitably slide apart. Disappointingly, the bathroom had an unpleasant toilet aroma, which thankfully was contained by closed door.
No Wifi in rooms, but two free internet enabled, computers in reception.
I commend this hotel for its commitment to sustainable tourism.

The Augustin Hotel in Bergen is situated very close to the harbour but not really at the harbour itself, so don't expect a lovely view over the water. When we arrived at the hotel the lady at the reception welcomed us with an overwhelming enthusiasm. That looked promising! But when we arrived at the room we could not help but being a little disappointed. Not because of the size of the room – which is reasonably spacious – but first of all because of the smell of cigarette smoke in what was supposed to be a non-smoking room. Secondly we were a bit disappointed because the room looked somewhat run-down. Typically a room that could do with some refurbishment.

However, after having enjoyed the huge flat-screen TV in the evening and having had a good night's sleep in the comfortable bed the initial disappointment started to fade. And by the time we had enjoyed the wonderful breakfast there was only enthusiasm for this hotel. What a hearty Norwegian breakfast they serve! Home-made pickled haring, fresh salmon and eel, scrambled eggs, meatballs and organic coffee. A great way to start the day.

Taking the fair rate into consideration the Augustin hotel is good value for money. We would definitely stay here again.

The best thing about this hotel is the staff. They really go out of their way to make things easy and pleasant, and to look thrilled to do so. They called cabs, made dinner reservations, printed our emails, provided maps--all while appearing that our requests brightened their day.

The public rooms are cosy and comfy. The main lounge/sitting room is looking a bit frayed, but in a homey, warm way. It has many comfortable chairs and sofas, a good selection of magazines, coffee and tea all day, and make-your-own waffles in the afternoon. The wine bar is tucked away around a corner and down a corridor, and has several tiny rooms in which to enjoy your (expensive) selection. Mind your head, though--some of the doorways are very old, very low arches.

The location is pretty good; the Augustin is not in one of the posher streets, but close enough to walk to everything. I felt very safe coming and going at all hours.

Breakfast was very good in the European fashion: Hard-cooked eggs, cured meats, smoked fish, cheese, cereal, yogurt, etc. Excellent coffee and orange juice.

Our room was very small but adequate. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom efficient and attractive. One stay our room was very quiet; the second stay in another room we heard some noise from the hall but it quieted down.

We hope to return to Bergen someday, and will consider the Augustin as our first choice.

I stayed in this hotel for one night during my trip to Oslo. It was pretty good location to explore the city. Room was small (normal to European standards) but good for one person. The best was the breakfast. It was included in the price. I recommend this hotel for any kind of traveler but get the fjords card for discounts otherwise it could be pretty expensive. There is restaurant/bar in the hotel which is recommended by Lonely Planet but I did not had the chance to go but it might be OK.

Beautiful hotel, cozy and good location; very helpful and nice staff. Try the restaurant, although the service was not very good. We would definitely stay there again!
