We had a wonderful three-day stay in the Havnekontoret Clarion in Bergen. The staff was consummately professional and helpful (even locating a fascinating used bookstore for us near downtown Bergen, which we'd been unable to discover through thorough Internet research). The property itself is not only well-located (quite near several museums/historical sites and easy walking along the quay to Bergen's center but beautifully appointed both in the public areas (we loved the DVD/library and the seating in the lobby area) and in the room we got (2 double beds and well-designed bath with heated floors and towel rack; the room was quite distinctive and had a balcony to a building across the way-- not a great view but still a refreshing place to step out that really "opened up" otherwise angular room which was a bit dark. The breakfast is really excellent, with some good choices even for the vegetarian in our family (that we found more difficult at other Scandinavian hotels) and also the free evening buffet after 6 p..m. (delicious -- and filling, much appreciated)! Top that with having complimentary pancakes(another treat!) at teatime lovely dining area, the very strong Internet signal (better than in some other hotels, we found), the quiet (thick walls and carpets), and the invitation to mount to the building's tower for a (free) view of Bergen: our expectations were not only met but far exceeded. We also appreciated the free DVDs/machine in the room and friendly explanations about using that, and also enjoyed the sauna and steambath in the lower level (though we had to ask at the desk to learn more about using those.) This was certainly our all-around favorite hotel during our 10-day stay in Norway--deserved the award it recently won in the Clarion Collection in Scandinavia.
