Reviewed 29 May 2011

As has been becoming the norm over the years this place has a keycard system but the trouble is it is susceptible to frequent failures as I can vouch over the course of numerous stays since it opened with it's nonsensical clear glass and idiotic light switch system in the rooms not to mention the provision of only one large and one small towel in a double room. Can't be that bad if I've been here so many times, (not by choice really, just where my employer books and it is undeniabky handy for the airport but there are other options like the Scandic or the Edvard Grieg, both of which I can reccomend). It does have a good breakfast however, possibly the best I've encountered in Norway. Would only reccomend to a friend if they were just on a one night stopover. Oh..and stupid fashionable but impractical giant pillows that give you a bent neck unless you use the solitary baby one!

Dear Tripadvisorer!
First of all thank you for taking the time and giving your review and feedback to our hotel. I am sorry to hear that you had problems with the key card system. I hope you reported this during your stay or at your departure, so we have the chance of fixing it!
Regarding pillows - it is as many other things - very individual, but for your next stay, please note that we always keep an additional pillow in the cabinet in the room. We will also be pleased to bring you extra towels whenever you need it.
I hope we will se you again, and have the opportunity to make your next visit better!

Kind Regards

We stayed at the Bergen Clarion airport hotel and was thinking it is just a convenient spot to start our journey early in the morning to the fjords. Little did we know, we also ended up staying an extra day on the last day of our holiday back at this same hotel when we missed our flight. For the two night stay, we were absolutely amazed at the quality and friendliness of the staff. It was our first impression of Norway and that short stay in itself already set us off in a good mood for our holiday knowing that we are visiting a country that is full of wonderful and friendly people (which is also true!)

The staff at the hotel were very helpful. Knowing that we missed our flights and were miserable travelling with two young children aged 3 and 5, they did everything to accomodate us while we stayed at the hotel throughout the next day waiting for our next flight. The staff were very friendly and also help to occupy the children so that we (parents) can still remain cool under the circumstances.

Overall the rooms are brand new, comfortable and very modern - beautiful design! The breakfast is amazing. We also had teh opportunity to pack some small sandwiches for the children to travel on the long drive to the fjords.

We would highly recomend this hotel. The best experience ever!

I've been stayed in many other Bergen's hotel but this one I think is the best, particularly if you don't have things to do in the city. A new hotel with Scandinavian design. Lucky that I've always been given a very spacious room with a view over the airport so you can enjoy different kinds of planes take off and landed with mountains as backgronud (don't worry, it's totally sound-proof). The provides spyglass too :).

Checked in just after midnight after a long haul flight from Asia.
Staff were really friendly even at this late hour. Check in was quick & efficient. Free internet was provided without even asking.

Having stayed din several hotels in Norway before I always find the rooms a little small. Everything you could need is usually there, just on a cozy scale.
However this room was spacious. A good size desk to work at & a settee to relax on & watch TV. Makes a change from sitting on the bed.
The bed was very comfortable and I had one of the best night’s sleep in a hotel bed in a long time

The hotel is an easy 5 minute walk max from the exit of the airport, so no need for a taxi.
For breakfast there was a good selection of both hot & cold dishes.

Could not fault the hotel at all & would recommend it to anyone want to stay close to the airport for flights etc.

We were very well taken care of right from the planning phase. The completion of the event was impeccable and the service likewise. We give Clarion Hotel Bergen Airport our warmest recommendations and will come again next year. Chess Communication, Event Committee, Elin & Monica.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Clarion and I really like their very modern and refreshing room lay out and ad ons like free internet. Food is good and brekfast excellant. Bar is very quiet but conference facilties very good. Location next to Airport is great for us travelling offshore and saves on Taxi's which does offset the higher room rates compared with other hotels near by. I would recommend the Clarion for business travel and for those who want to relax and work in their rooms. No use for nightlife or entertainment though.

I had an early morning flight after a transfer from Oslo, so I decided to give it a try. The best thing about this hotel is that it's within walking distance from Bergen Airport. The look and feel of the hotel is good, with Scandinavian interior.
The welcome at the reception was not very good. Very young and unexperienced staff. The room has a Scandinavian style. One thing I didn't like was the glass walls to the bathroom, meaning no privacy! The room was also very cold. I tried to adjust it, but to no help. They claim that the windows are completely insulated from outside noise, but this is not true. I had a room facing the runway, and it was noisy! So if you have to stay here, choose a room facing the other direction.
