First, everyone working at this hotel is super. Great service. That said, there are a number of issues. First, the walk to the hotel from the bus stop is not bad. The final 30 meters is steep. But going up and down to the 3rd floor (especially with my bags) was what wore me out. The stairs are extremely steep. It is after all, an old building. But I will seek out a Bergen hotel with an elevator next time.
The room I received was, as expected, sparse. But it was not as nicely furnished as rooms with photos on the webpage or even on this site. The room seemed a lot more worn than other rooms. Granted, it does look a little frumpier after I slept in the bed and opened my bags. But that's how small the rooms are. If you mess up the bed, the room looks "totaled".
Worse though was the bathroom. The lighting was awful. There were lights, just never light in the right spot. It was difficult to get any light in front of the mirror to shave. Maybe this is simply our LED future. As can be seen in my photo, the bathroom is so tiny that any water from the shower ends up in on the floor everywhere in the room. So once you shower, you cannot stand in the bathroom without getting your feet wet.
Breakfast is more than adequate. I especially recommend the fresh rye breads you slice yourself.
I was there during the week in summer and I did not experience noise issues. In fact, due to the heat I needed to sleep with the windows open. There was some road noise but not a lot. I paid 990 Kr. a night. I think next time I will investigate a newer hotel downtown.
