“Great breakfast & lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

As other reviewers have stated, the hotel is ideally located for the bus to the airport and the train station and a short walk down-town along the lovely Marketen street. Big shopping centre located on the other side of the train station.

Lovely breakfast and lunch and we stayed there for a meeting so the meeting room facilities and refreshments were excellent also. Of course, the lobby, restaurant and bar are beautiful and traditional as described but the bedrooms aren't 'anything to write home about' - but they are adequate and functional and of course the bathrooms (tiny) have cosy underfloor heating that you come to expect in Scandinavian hotels. Would recommend this hotel if you're looking for a well placed, traditional hotel with excellent food and service.

Room Tip: I stayed in a room that was located along the side of the hotel and witht eh windows closed it was q...

The railway station is right across the street and everything is very easily accessible from the hotel. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I would in particular like to mention Signe at the reception, who went out of her way to suggest good places to eat, places to see etc and marked them all on the map and told us how to get around etc. Thank you so much Signe! :0
The hotel has an excellent breakfast spread of fresh fruits, varied kinds of cheese, meats, juices and of course the std eggs-bacon-sausages-breads. Everything was very fresh and I thoroughly enjoyed the meal.
The hotel is old with dark wood and subdued lighting, giving it an old-world charm, though the rooms were modern enough, though a tad small (but then that's typical of most European hotels).
I would definitely choose to stay there again!

We recently spent 2 1/2 weeks travelling through Scandinavia. This was our favorite hotel. Convenient location across from the central station, lots of old world charm, a wonderful breakfast, a large, comfortable room all made for a delightful stay. My only quibble is that our room faced the train station, so there was some noise, but I was so tired I slept through it (and I think it quieted down substantially during the night anyway). The best amenity - the hotel provided free access to a washing machine and dryer, which was very welcome halfway through our trip. Bergen is an expensive city, and we paid more per night for this hotel than any other on our trip, but it was worth every penny. I would absolutely stay here whenever I travel to Bergen.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the train station.

One of the oldest hotels in Bergen and it still functions in the grand manner. It is wonderfully old fashioned with lots of dark wood, leaded glass and high ceilings. They lay claim to having one of Europe's best whiskey bars but with Norwegian prices I'll have to accept that on faith. They did have a huge and varied breakfast buffet. The staff was also a big plus, extremely pleasant and helpful. I'm not sure about value because we were upgraded to a deluxe room at no extra cost. You can't beat it for convenience if you arrive by train, walk to the station end of the platform, turn right, cross the street and you are there. It is also within ten minutes walk of just about everything you will want to see in Bergen.

We stayed at the Grand Terminus for two nights. The room was bright, big, nicely decorated, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The staff was very nice and went out of their way to help when I was having trouble with the washer and dryer (which, by the way are complimentary - you just have to pay for the detergent). The library/bar always had tea, and coffee and reading material. It's a. Easy and pleasant walk into downtown and Bryggen. It's also adjacent to the train station. But don't worry about noise from the station - we had are windows open the entire time and never heard any train noise at all. This is a wonderful hotel and I hope to go back to Bergen someday and when I do I will stay at the Grand Terminus.

This is a typical old fashioned railyway hotel with dark decor with large high ceiling dining, bar and reception rooms.
Also no views to speak off.

However the hotel is ideal for the railway station (just cross the road) and nearby bus terminus.
Therefore if you are covering the Norway in a Nutshell tour this hotel is perfect.

Also it is in walking distance off the main centre of Bergen and Wharf area.

Breakfast was excellant and the staff were friendly.

Room very small, and very noisy. Heard doors banging all night and the people in the next room going to the loo.
Bathroom is very dangerous. Wet room, with no handles makes it a very slippy floor. I used all the towels as mats to ensure I did not sleep,
Breakfast was good!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room with a proper shower

Thanks for reviewing your stay. You mention that your room was small. The hotel consists of more than 50% superior rooms in de luxe and junior suite class. At the classical and historical Grand Hotel Terminus you can upgrade your room at low cost, only NOK200 a night.
