“Stay elsewhere!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Even with low expectations, we were highly disappointed by this hotel. The rooms were so tiny that it was hard for 2 people to be up and moving at the same time. The bed quality was terrible - it felt like a sofa bed and it would creak and bounce with every little movement. Wifi in the room was spotty. Worst of all, we were woken up at 6 am by loud construction right outside our window. When I say loud, I mean throwing-around-huge-metal-objects loud. We hoped it would stop at some point but it continued until we checked out a couple of hours later. Very jarring!

The only reason this isn't a 1-star review is because of the nice lady at the reception who helped us with all our questions.

I'm sure there are better accommodations in the vicinity and would not recommend this place to anyone.

I was on a training course in Bergen and the hotel was booked from my company.This was my first trip to Bergen.It was very easy to find.There is a shuttle bus from the airport and the central Bus station is very close to the hotel.In front of the main entrance across the street is the Central Train station .So it is very convenient place for people travelling from other cities in Norway.The Hotel is an old building well maintained and renovated.The rooms are a bit small.I was in a nice and warm 2 bedroom which was ok ( the beds are also not very big).This was in the middle of March but the weather was quite cold and rainy.At the lobby you can find the most famous Whiskey Bar in Norway ( as they advertise it ).The breakfast was very nice and the food at the restaurant ( it was paid in advance ) was delicious.The Hotel is situated not far from the city center and Bryggen ( must to see place in Bergen).Within 10 min walk is the city shopping center.
People are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: It is cheaper to by 2 two way ticket for the air port shuttle bus.

We chose the hotel mainly because of the central location near to the train and bus station. It was a 5-10 minute easy walk to the fish market. We had a triple room, and I requested bed arrangements and a quiet room in advance. Both requests were met, and I was happy with the size of the room, which still had room for 3 easy chairs and a coffee table, even with the sofa converted to a bed.

We had a room on the 6th floor at the back of the hotel, near to the stair well, and despite my reservations about noise from the stairs/lift, it was very quiet. This was a midweek stay, so don't know if that would be different at a weekend when they have functions. As we were at the back there was a bit of a hum from the extractor units which might be a problem for some, but I am a very light sleeper and found it didn't disturb me at all.

Room and bathroom were clean and well maintained. A split shower hose was dealt with promptly, as were requests for additional pillows. Plenty of power sockets on every wall, so as long as you have enough adaptors, there are enough places to charge all of your appliances at once. Wifi was free and reliable too.

My one reservation is the lack of tea/coffee facilities in the room. Complimentary tea and coffee is provided all day by reception, and this was great, but I was grateful that I remembered to pack my travel kettle!

Staff were polite and helpful, and we had a great stay.

We did the NIN trip and got off at the Bergen train station. The hotel is a 2 minute easy walk away. Room was a little small, like many Euro cities. But breakfast was good, and location was perfect for us. Quiet, about a nice 20 minute walk from Bryggen. Another NIN traveler was complaining about staying in Bryggen and how noisy it was. Good wifi.

The rooms are quite small and a little noisy. Parking is not free and in a difficult to access multi-storey along the street, but would be ideal for train travellers as it's over the road from the station. Breakfast is good. Overall it is not particularly good value for money. Hotel advertises as 4 star, but it's more like 3. Whilst it is ok, if I go back to Bergen I will probably look for something else. There is extensive construction work ongoing at the railway station as at August 2014 so it can be noisy early in the morning.

The bar area is nice, quaint and a pleasant place to sit.

This is a very quaint hotel. The rooms are small but comfortable and a little noisy. It's ok for a night or maybe two. The breakfast buffet is large and has plenty to choose from. It is a leisurely 8-10 minute walk to the waterfront and Bryggen.

Room Tip: The second floor is a bit noisy. Not sure if higher floors would be quieter or not.
