“Mixed Feelings”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

The hotel location is great for those traveling by train or bus. The room was quite small, but clean (especially for the price). The breakfast was very nice. The restaurant offered a very limited menu and was incredibly expensive.

This hotel is very near the train station, I estimate less than 100 steps away. But with Bergen weather, the proximity doesn't really help. It was raining when we reached Bergen via train. We were so near, yet so far away from the hotel. But once you check in, you can always borrow umbrellas from the reception counter when heading out. As mentioned by many other reviewers, you can get to anywhere in Bergen conveniently from the hotel. The Bergen Light Rail (Bybanen) has a stop just outside the other exit of the train station. You can cut across the train station to get to the stop. The next day when we checked out, there was no rain and we went to the bus terminal using the sheltered walkway which is connected to the train station.

Checking in and out is fast and hassle free. We were slightly late for our check out as the walk between Troldhaugen and Hop station took much longer than expected. Unlike some hotels which require you to revalidate card key after the designated check out time, we managed to get to our room without re-validating and check out quickly.

Rooms are small. You can only open one luggage at one time at the walkway between the bathroom and the bed. Bathroom is almost like the size of those on a cruise ship. You open the door, take one step in and there is the sink; take one step to your right and there is the toilet; back to the sink and take one step to your left and there is the shower.

We called and request for kettle and was informed that we can help ourselves to the service room on the second floor with our room card. No problem, went there and took the last kettle on the counter, and took some cups and glasses too. The staff who processed our check-out said that we can leave them in our room when we checked out.

Breakfast. We searched high and low for the breakfast area. The entrance to the breakfast area is not grand at all. You have to enter it via a small corridor between the lift and the stairs. But, the breakfast spread is good. They also have waffles but it is the soft waffles and not those slightly crispy on the outside and soft in the inside.

A friend had dinner there and has high praises for its steak. Didn't have the chance to try it. Hope to do so another time.

We hopped of he hurtigruten cruise and checked in at the grand terminus... So pleased we booked this hotel.

The whole hotel set a scene of grand history- wide hallways and well appointed decorations throughout the hotel.

Massive rooms, with beautiful decoration- my room had a chandelier and I didn't want to leave my room.

Reception staff were friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was tasty and lots of variety.

We were lucky to be in Bergen on one of the 100 days of no rain in Bergen in the year. This city is stunning and lovely to walk around the place and couldn't help but admire the views of this gorgeous city.

This hotel has a lot of history. If you like that kind of old feeling, this is definitely the best place for you. If you are looking for big, comfortable, trendy rooms, then you should consider again. Rooms are quite small and bathrooms as well. Furniture is classy, as everything else in this hotel. But prepare for some inconveniences: wet bathroom floor after showering, noise, too warm to sleep, etc. Nothing major, and all very understandable for a historic place like this.

They have a free wifi also working in the rooms. The breakfast is really good

We stayed here after flying into Bergen, for one night before renting a car to drive around the fjords and then one night before flying out. Our room was a standard one for our first night but we were given an end-of-corridor suite for the last night for the same price (booked through Otel). We chose the hotel because the price and location seemed right. The price is definitely good value (for Norway) and the location great, just a couple of minutes walk from the Airport shuttle bus stops.
The hotel has character, unlike any other, read previous comments by other reviewers.

You always come back to the places where you were happy... Some years ago I stayed in Grand Terminus, and loved its old decadent style, altough decadence impressed me more negatively... Now, things have changed, I believe the hotel has changed management (they are together with Augustin, a very nice hotel in Bergen also) and things are bettter.

My room was confortable, simple and practic (like all Norwegian goods), breakfast is simple but with quality, location is excellent. Keep on the good work!

We stay for 1 night, the hotel looks a bit old but we like the classic stylish and its beautiful decoration. Only a minor things about the design in the room, the modern's style chandelier inside our room and bed sheet messed up the beauty of this hotel.

Room Tip: A bit far from most of the attractions, but by walking is possible.
