The hotel is in a great location on the Bryggen tourist strip waterfront. Therefore the area is quite noisy with night life.
Requested and paid for a 'superior' Harborview room, which gave wonderful views - and little else. The waterfront rooms are in the Bryggen section of the hotel, and these rooms are old, run down, and poorly cared for. Holes in walls, cracks in ceiling, a kettle with mould growing in it, cupboard doors that won't shut, and towels with holes in them (kettle and towels were replaced on our complaint). Layers of dust on desktop surfaces auggest that cleaning isn't a priority either.
The public areas and breakfast were fine, but all staff encountered were indifferent and abrupt. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.
