Has a old world charm.. Convenient location..about 200 m from bus stop, 400 m from boat pier. And 1 km from the tram, train station. Walk up to the hotel with luggage could be a challenge due to its uphill walk and cobble stone pavements. It's very close to the famed fish market. Also close to the the entrance of...

Stayed for 2 nights in this hotel with my son. The location was fabulous, a few minutes walk from Bryggen and our room overlooked the harbor. Within walking distance of all the restaurants and shops. Breakfast was very good, with a wide variety of cereals, breads, cheeses, and hot foods such as sausages, eggs, etc.

Love it from top to bottom. We had part of one of the suite rooms on the seventh floor. Nice and quite. Heated bathroom floor was nice. Our view was Funicular when you can see it. On block from the Bryggen, and all the markets. Just be prepared for the rain. but don't let that stop you from visiting this...

Top service, friendly staff. In the middle of Bergen City. I have stayed many hotels in Bergen but this is my favoritt hotel. And it have some rooms with a beautiful view over the harbour. In my opinion this is one of the best hotels in Bergen.

My family and I spent a weekend in Bergen at this hotel. We booked a family room. The room was very spacious and had a separate bedroom for our son. However the room was directly across the street from a bar. Apparently Fri and Sat are busy at the bar and the noise kept us awake until the early morning....

Good location, very helpfull for dinner time. Good restaurants nearby. The rooms need an update in decoration, but they're ok. Various options for breakfast (the toaster needs to be replaced, the toasts don't get out easily, that's why some people use the knife...not a safety move :) ).

The hotel is quaint and old-worldish. Lovely reception area - reception staff are very helpful and friendly! There is a lift available. Rooms are large and nice. Downside is that there are no tea/coffee amenities in the rooms, but there is an all day tea/coffee room located on the ground floor of the hotel. Slightly annoying if you want to...

The room and bathroom was clean but very basic. Also much was missing; no bathroom mat, waste paper basket. Room phone did not work. No hotel restaurant available but a breakfast room; cold soft boiled eggs, scrambled eggs stale also with an extreme basic selection. Also no sugar or hot milk available No sugar or hot milk available at breakfast....

The hotel is a reasonable walk from the train station. It's near the harbor and close to many of Bergen's attractions. It's also close to a number of restaurants. Our room was comfortable and the staff was very helpful. But a bit of renovation is needed here. The rugs in the hallways looked faded and worn through.
