Expensive, 950 NOK for a couple, probably because of Bergenfest, and last minute booking. We rented a room with private bathroom. Very friendly staff and the location is great. No breakfast and we had to rent a towels.
- Free Wifi
- Breakfast included
This hotel was well located, clean and modern. The lady on the front desk was very helpful and the hotel offered good facilities such as TV and free wifi. We had a private room which was quiet and had comfy beds.
However, we paid close to £150 per night for this hotel and we thought this was a bit overpriced. Firstly, we had to pay extra for the towels when we arrived. We were also handed linen and told to make our own beds. The bathroom was small and had no bath (the shower also flooded the entire bathroom). And there was no tea / coffee facilities in the room. If we had paid hostel prices (i.e. less than £100), this wouldn't have bothered us so much but we thought that it would be a higher standard of service for the price. Perhaps the price of all accommodation in Bergen was inflated that weekend because of the Hanseatic Days festival and at normal weekends it may be better value for money.
Stayed here for one night with my sister on a short stay to Bergen during the Norway in a nutshell tour. Friendly greeting from the lady on reception. Yes you get given bedding and yes you have to rent towels...but try not to let that put you off!
The room (we had a private double with our own bathroom) was basic and no frills but very clean and the bathroom was spacious. We made our bed and logged on to the fast free wifi - very impressive!
There was a nice looking communal kitchen and plenty of bathrooms and also a laundry room that we spotted.
Location wise it's excellent - 5 minutes from the train station and the middle of town. Couldn't fault it.
Compared to the price of other hotels in Bergen this was something of a bargain - worth booking in advance though!
I just want to say that the staff there is so friendly and nice! I made a mistake on my reservation and they were so accommodating and quick to fix my mistake. Also, with our travel delays they were okay with our very late arrival. The room itself was kind of small but our room did have a private bath which was nice. The location was good, close to the train station, the wharf, and furnicular. I'd stay there again if I'm lucky enough to head back to Bergen.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful the whole stay, and reception has long opening hours. The location is perfect, 5 min walk to the centre. Great kitchen facilities, and loads of places to socialise or just chill. Room was clean and comfortable, and there was a daily cleaner. Loads of showers and toilets throughout the hostel, all in good condition and clean. Must stay if in Bergen, thanks for the great stay!!
Thank you for this awesome review! We hope to see you back in Bergen and Marken Gjestehus some day :-)
Good location with free wifi, however overpriced for a small basic room which fails even to include towels. Another feature which I found strange was the requirement to make your own bed which is a task requiring a strong stomach as a number of hairs can be found under the mattress. Suggest you look elsewhere.
