We stayed at the Det Hanseatiske which was a merchants house while we were in Bergen. If you want to understand this property, take the complementary tour at the museum on the corner, and then walk through the other part of the "Bryggen". Each room in this place is different. We were fortunate enough to get an attic room with the original 300 year old crane and rope in the bath. The room had been remodeled and everything was very up to date complete with light dimmers!
The staff is friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet is a lovely and a great way to start the day. The location is just a few steps away from the old wharf, the train/bus station is about a 10 min walk, and the tram to the "stave" church is just across the main square. If you want to eat with the "locals", there are several good restaurants just of that square (near the art museums).
We would highly recommend this if you are looking for a great place to stay in Bergen while you are working your way along the east coast, or are doing the "Norway in a Nutshell".
