Hôtel Charmante is an explosive product in an otherwise neutral market, an outgoing little sister with lots of personality & character. When the siblings try to fit in, Charmante says just as she thinks & means and takes her place. She is never afraid that her flamboyant personality will be too much, but on the other hand, terrified of not being remembered.

This is a small boutique hotel created from the conversion of some old terraced townhouses in central Bergen. It is very well situated for the main areas and good restaurants are nearby.

The decor of the hotel is spectacular. The rooms, hallways, loos and even the lift are all dramatically dressed with matching wallpaper and carpet in dramatic colours.

The bedrooms are opulent, with lush sofas, comfortable beds, and a fully stocked in-room wine fridge and bar area containing Tattinger and Meurault.

The breakfasts are cooked to order. Service is relaxed but attentive.

I had dinner one evening in the small Parisian-style bistro, which played Louis Armstrong jazz and created a welcoming ambience that felt almost 1920s in feel. The halibut with a champagne and caviar sauce was lovely, and the lemon dessert utterly sublime with wonderful contrasts in zesty smooth curd, sharp creamy yogurt and crispy crunchy meringue.

This was a fabulous hotel and so much better than a large branded chain hotel. I would definitely stay here again for business, although it would also be brilliant for a romantic couples weekend in Bergen.

Cutest boutique hotel in a prime location. French vibe with its funky wallpaper and gold fixtures, but all the amenities were modern. Room and bathroom were clean with electronic lighting and temperature control. The attached restaurant served high quality a la carte breakfast (included in room rate). Location can't be beat - walkable from a bunch of restaurants and bars. Lastly, the service was top notch - everyone working there went out of their way to make us feel at home.

Lovely decor. Great bed and linens. Served breakfast very nice except for minusule serving of fruit. Very convenient location. Room was quiet once the windows were closed. Red automatic nightlight in bathroom.
Cons-have to ask for shower cap, no tissues, no TV, door to bathroom has large window with only a sheer curtain so no privacy, thermostat only adjusts 3 degrees up or down, have to stand on sofa to close one of the window blinds and window, very difficult to reach other blinds and close windows (necessary because of street noise), bathroom shelf on opposite side from pedestal sink, had to turn off refrigerator because of noise, no telephone, sloped ceilings and room layout wasted a lot of space so couldn’t open large suitcases, found bathmat in closet instead of bathroom.
Had requested quite room with walk-in shower and no sloped ceiling or wasted space because of room layout-got the shower and quiet.

The hotel advertises air conditioning and it does not have. We had to ask for a fan. There were only two outlets in the room to even plug the fan in. The WiFi didn’t work the whole 24 hours we were there. The shower was tiny and flooded the bathroom floor due to its poor design. They didn’t even have tissue in the room but they sure had a big stocked wine fridge if you wanted to get snookered for a large amount of money. We paid $500 U.S. dollars for this room. The people that worked here were very kind. After I told the front desk in the morning that the room was still so warm overnight and the WiFi didn’t work, I ordered a cappuccino which she made beautifully. But honestly I was surprised I got charged for it after I told her how crappy our sleep was. I wasn’t expecting anything free, but come on. A free cappuccino would help the disappointment.

A very special hotel when it comes to the interior; Francophile into the tiniest details in every room and with tapestry on every wall and mirrors in almost all ceilings. We felt very welcome from the minute we entered the reception (met with a glass of sparkling champagne each) up until we left the following day. Lovely dinner as well for the four of us, all in all a memorable stay i Bergen.

My wife and I are seasoned (older) travelers who have stayed in everything from Air BnB’s to some very fine boutique hotels as well as highly rated hotels all over Europe and the UK.
I rarely write bad reviews, but I was never made to feel comfortable at this hotel. No help with bags, and a brusque waitress at breakfast who acted as if she was doing us a favor when she brought our meager, poorly prepared breakfast.
Our room was simply horrible! Take two steps down to get into it and another step down to get into the bathroom, and on the main small street above their restaurant so peace and quiet was non-existent.
The decor is abysmal. It’s as if William Morris vomited his wall paper on every available flat surface, and let’s make sure it clashes horribly with the carpeting.
If you’re a hip person being sold their marketing line about this being a hip and cool place to stay, forget it! It is neither hip or cool, but a disjointed amalgam of wanna be hipness.
Take my advice…stay anyplace but here!

We stayed at this wonderful hotel before our trip to Flam and again on our return from Flam - both for one night. The hotel was just so wonderful and charming. Being allergic to feathers they changed all the bedding for me and kept our room to have again for the second night a few days later. We were able to leave our luggage there after checking out so we could see the city. The location is excellent, very close to the main train station, the light rail tram connecting to the airport and all the town of Bergen. Breakfast was wonderful and cosy. We will definitely stay here again should we
visit Bergen again.

Great boutique hotel with helpful staff welcoming you with a big smile. The interior and room are excellent, and there's a tempting minibar available :)

Had a wonderful experience at their restaurant where we enjoyed duck with delicious sides. The breakfast was also superb. I highly recommend the hotel if you're visiting Bergen.

This hotel stood out among the crowd in a European tour between Ireland and Norway. Immaculate service, attention to details, outstanding/unique decor, and a delicious included breakfast really took this hotel experience to top of my list. The hotel was optimally situated within quick walk to all the sites in Bergen including the visitors center, where many of our day trips departed from. While the interior hotel vibe was incredibly unique, it was the consistent top shelf service that I will remember. Staff clearly loved what they do and took pride in their service and that showed in every interaction. I’ve never experienced anything quite like it in my 45 years and I was sad to depart.

This is a very upbeat hotel full of art and objects that give the place an atmosphere of over the top decadence! Incredible bedding and a great restaurant. A perfect location!
We would have loved a shelf in the bathroom and a robe or two.
At night we could hear people in the restaurant.
