I really enjoyed my stay at the Scandic Strand. The view (from 4th floor) of the fish market and other areas around Bergen city center was superb. The proximity to the fish market and other highlights of Bergen center, with a short (10 minute) walk to light rail terminus and the Bergen information center across the street, make the hotel location ideal.
The morning breakfast had a very diverse assortment of food items, with the seating nicely laid out to take advantage of the city view.
Overall I was very pleased with the wireless connectivity, and did not experience the issues reported in previous reviews. Either the network has been made more robust or I lucked into a room in good spot.
My room was a bit on the small side, but with the age of the building I think that is difficult to overcome. I have had similar experience in older venues elsewhere in Europe, so I do not view this as a particular shortcoming.
I found my room to be well appointed with modernized bath and furniture. Being able to open the window was nice to let in cool evening air (US hotels typically have sealed windows). Street noise can be a distraction on weekends.
