Of course you can't expect 5 star accommodation for this price in Norway. This place is no frills but that is the way it can offer low cost accommodation in expensive Norway. Our double room with en-suite was clean & comfortable + the location [short walk from/to train/bus station] made this a good choice. No TV in room but could... More

Citybox Bergen was the only place I could find for my budget and schedule during the week when students go back to school. It was fairly expensive to me for what it offered. The self check-in station uses credit card pin code to authorize the transaction, I was not able to check-in with my credit card from US since US... More

The Citybox is located near the bus station on the edge of Bergen's central business district. It appears to have been a remodel of an existing building, done up in trendy gray and white colors but is now suffering from scuffed up walls and dirty carpet. The common area is very cramped and not practical if more than a dozen... More

Stayed at city box Bergen for 2 nights. About a 15 minute walk from the harbour front. Check in progress is machine based and very slow. The machine touch screen is very bad and non responsive so took a very long time just to get through the process. Very frustrating when you then find there is a staff member sitting... More

Stayed for three nights, a couple. Pros- location, fairly inexpensive (for Norway), very close to three supermarkets, close to train station (Bergen is not very big), beds are comfy, communal seating area downstairs with kettle etc is quite nice. Cons- incredibly noisy building work from 7am (why so early?) impossible to sleep through, shared bathroom isn't very nice, only one... More

We really enjoyed our stay there. Clean room and bathroom, great lounge. Great location, walking distance from the train station and bus terminal. There's a Kiwi supermarket right in front of it. Their cafe has croissant and coffee for 35nok. They have a microwave and a kettle. Good tv and wifi. Automatic check in machine works great.

The hotel is simple, no staff , no restaurant which is the reason why this is one of the cheaper options in Bergen. There is a common area where you can find a fridge, waterkettle and microwave. The hotel is a 10 min walk to the centre, parking is next door in P-garage Grieg, Nok 220 per 24 hours. We... More

Very efficient e-check-in and our room was exactly what we needed. The shared bathroom was great, clean and available every time we needed it. We only stayed 1 night but would have happily stayed more.
