“comfortable stay and convenient location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

We enjoyed our stay here, and may consider staying here again - due to its location.

Good: very convenient location - bus from Bergen airport is the last stop from airport, and the first to airport so no need to take taxi. Hotel is within walking distance of the Information Centre, the Fish Market, the Wharf to take boats to fjords or Rosendal (nice trip) and ferry to Aquarium, the funicular, and about 20 mins walk to train station for Norway in a Nutshell tour.

Room was clean, lovely bathroom with heated floor (although shower was not good pressures - small hose and small head - so I had baths everyday instead). Bed was 2 single joined together (although pillows were not as good as experienced at other hotels). Bath towels were not very large.

Breakfast selection was good with self-help: bacon, scrambled eggs, an orange juice machine to make fresh juice (very nice, like this extra!), cold meat varieties and salads, different types of cut melons, bread, cereal and yogurt. On the shelf above the cold meat / salad / fruit, there was a basket of fish oil capsules in small packets. We took a few each day! If you stay, look out for this supplement.

Afternoon pancakes: cook them yourself, and one afternoon there was a large tour groups and the queue in the pancake was very long.

Evening meal: one night there was the same large tour group so the selection was good. However, other nights the food was just a rehash of left-over breakfasts - cold meat and salad. I think it would have been better if in the summer the hotel offers the cold meat and salad, but in the winter just make 2 large pots of soups (one veg and one with meat) and warm bread. This would be lovely without offering the left-overs!

This hotel represents great value in a country where everything is expensive.This hotel has really interesting decor in a good way. The breakfast was included and was really good and varied choice. The hidden bonus was there is a light evening meal included in the cost. .
Wifi was OK and free (as it should be). The location couldn't be better - it is on the harbor and walking distance to everything.

Superb hotel in the Bergen city centre. Great staff and a very nice room. Like the breakfast and also think that the evening buffet is a great thing. My third stay at the hotel and are certainly coming back next time in Bergen.

What a fantastic surprise. Hotel was booked on our behalf by Nordic Visitor. So not sure what the standard of hotel would be. We were pleasantly surprised. Beautifully decorated with warm chocolate & purple accents. The receptionist spoke fantastic English. The complimentary afternoon tea (we missed, late arrival) and light dinner were also a welcome surprise.
Across the toad from Bergen Port & the historic Bryggen Wharf area. Perfect location for walking around town.

A very nice hotel with close to the city center. The rooms are a bit strange but the rest is ok. The breakfast is great and good service. A minus is the front of the hotel and that you can't really see anything out the windows in some rooms.

With a superb location on the picture-perfect dock the hotel was comfortable, modern with a touch of ornate purple & crystal. The staff were incredibly helpful and the free dinner was a bonus in expensive Norway. The restaurant was so cosy on a snowy evening. The room was gorgeous and comfortable. The view was partially obscured by fabric as there are renovations being done but we loved this hotel.

The room was okay maybe a little bit dusty. We had a room in the 6th floor and at our stay there were construction noise all the time since 7.30 in the morning so we couldn´t sleep anymore. So we woke up and went to the front desk to tell them about the construction noise and they repeat the construction worker will stop if somebody got disturbed by the noise. We´re already awake and I think they should have told us before that there will be construction noise! The hotel should work on their complaint management. We paid the full price for our stay and got disturbed by very loud construction noise the whole day and I think that´s not okay at all. We booked our room in January and with our reservation we asked for a parking place as well. At our arrival nobody knew about the parking place and we had to search for another one nearby the hotel. Sorry but we will never coming back again.
