“Cool Vibe, Great Service & Location”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Just returned home to the US after a 2 night stay in Bergen that was our last stop on an amazing Norweignen adventure. We arrived by Express boat from Flam and were unsure of how far the hotel was from the port. We grabbed a cab loaded our bags and told the cab driver where we were headed. He very kindly explained that the hotel was only a few blocks away and only one turn from the port on pedestrian only Torgallmenningen so we would be better off walking. We did and it was so easy to get there. However we were a bit confused about the entrance as you enter through the restaurant and the hotel check in is tucked away behind a wall next to the elevator. It is just one desk and struck as as very cool, it was like the hidden hotel. We were checked in by Maria who was cheerful, sweet and extremely service oriented. We had 2 adjoining rooms a junior suite and a superior on the second floor with a view of the lively street. The hotel is in an old building but the everything in the room has a contempory vibe and is new. The suite was large and had 2 chairs, 2 stools and a large cocktail table and a 55" flat screen on the wall. I loved the purple touches and modern decor. The wall graphics in the rooms and the hallway are very hip. The hotel reminds me of the W hotels. The bathrooms are utlra modern with a black slate like shower with a hand held and rain shower. The superior rooms bathroom had glass walls etched with a purple graphic for privacy. This bathroom was actually more spacious than the one in the junior suite. The only negative is that the bathroom has no toiletry products, no wash cloths and the soap is located in a dispenser on the wall in both the shower and at the sink. On a positive note, when I requested wash cloths and a shower cap they were delivered promptly. The food offerings at the hotel were also a really nice touch. We did not take advantage of the evening food offering but did enjoy the very adequate breakfast buffet. Breakfast is served in the lower level wine room and it is actually quite a cozy spot. Loved it. In addition to the buffet choices you could get made to order eggs and waffles. Breakfast during the week was served til 10 but the staff earned points with me by not clearing things away promptly at 10.
As for the location it is centrally located near the busy Bryggen historic area and wharf but right on , which I liked.
.

Room Tip: I would suggest requesting a street facing room on floor 4-6

The taxi driver couldn't find the hotel but the plaza location proved to be excellent with no traffic noise. The room was a bit tight but the quality and view over the plaza to the funicular to Mount Floyen made up for it. Afternoon cake and coffee were delicious, and supper filling. Shower was great, and the bed comfortably firm. The staff were very friendly and nothing was a problem. Breakfast was excellent with wonderful sourdough bread and organic fruit and veges. Location near the Art Galleries and other tourist attractions proved to be very convenient.

Room Tip: Rooms over the plaza are quiet, and higher ones have a view.

Top service cool hotel and hotel rooms. On the top floor you get a great wiew of the city central. And whatever you need, they will get it for you. staff very courteous and willing to assist with queries relative to events, directions, shuttle to the airport and leaving luggage when checking out to connect to an evening flight - presented no problems and mostly done with a smile

Room Tip: Top floor for best wiew

Dear Sebastian,

Thank you for your review of No13. I am happy to hear that you appreciated the evening meal as well as the breakfast. As you mentioned we are lucky to be located in the middle of the city center, and I am happy that you had the chance to enjoy the city view from one of our four rooms with a balcony.
I am sorry that the bathroom floor was to cold, however if you come back, I have slippers now waiting for you :)

Hope to see you again soon! Have a wonderful summer.

Best regards,

This hotel is in the heart of Bergen, and I highly recommend it for that. Less than a five minute walk to two bus tours and also extremely close to the fish market and tons of shops, ten minutes to the train station. I only give a four instead of a five as it was a but hard to find being my first time in Bergen, residential street, so cabs can't pull up directly, and the front if the hotel is a bar/restaurant, but excellent service and highly recommend it.

The city of Bergen is not a place to miss. A great stay just in the center of Bergen. Close to main attractions. The room was big and clean. The bathroom was large. The hotel is new and modern. Very friendly staff.
