We spent two nights at First Marin while attending to some family affairs in town. Arrived after midnight and were checked in swiftly. After a good night's sleep, we were uite disappointed by the breakfast; the selection is less interesting than average, the coffee is not good, the buffet was sloppily attended to and empty of e.g. butter etc., and...

Really great location right in the heart of Bryggen and worth paying for a harbour view. Breakfasts were tasty with the usual array of hot food, toast, herring, cheese and meats and a waffle maker. Staff were friendly and there wasn't a problem when there was a mix up on room rates on checking out.

The hotel is just a street behind Bryggen. I was offered a room upgrade when checking in, and got quite a spacious room with an incredibly good shower. Staff was very helpfull with weather reports and umbrella's. There are free coffee/tea facilities in the hotel. The only negative point is the outdated decor. The hotel looks a bit tired. Luckily...

Would recommend this hotel. Situation right on The Bryggen. Staff were extremely helpful and polite. Breakfast had a lot of great choices: Cereals, Breads, Fruit, Hams, Cheeses, Eggs, Bacon and beans etc. Room was spacious and clean, although maybe a little dated. The hotel is under going renovations however we were never interrupted by the workings.

When looking for hotels in Bergen for an overnight stay I looked at the reviews on trip advisor first. I chose this hotel based on reviews plus it's location to key attractions. It's proximity to the Hurtigruten terminal was also a factor.

Brought my family to bergen and our original hotel cancellel. First Hotel Marin took us in and it ended up being so much better than the other hotel that I had previously stayed and was excited about. Perfect location, rooms, views, and staff. Feel comfortable booking here.

Would highly recommend this hotel for its position. It was within walkable distance from the train station with luggage and young children. Check in was easy. The room very clean with all expected hotel amenities. Breakfast was excellent and they provided tea/coffee/hot chocolate throughout the day which was very welcomed. A late checkout was given and luggage stored all at...

Lovely hotel, just in need of a bit of refurbishment. Staff are very friendly and breakfast is buffet and plentiful. No tea and coffee making facilities in standard rooms. WiFi is excellent and free. Fantastic location right in the centre of Bergen

The hotel is near the cable car up the mountain. By foot it is a 3 minutes walk to the fish market and 5 - 7 minutes to city center. The hotel is acceptable but could use sooner than later a refurbishing touch if they want to have guests coming. It had been our 2nd stay with the hotel. You...

Decent hotel to get you through your stay. No frills of any kind and not the type of hotel room you'd want to necessarily hang out in. I'd say it's very average. Very small rooms. Breakfast served only from 6:30am to 10:00am, so be careful if you're fighting jet lag.
