Good sized rooms. Very clean. Enjoyed so much having a kettle and a refrigerator that was empty and I could stock with goodies of our choice. Did hear some noise from down below first couple of nights but not excessive and only lasted for perhaps two hours. Third night and being a Saturday night expected a ruckus but heard nothing....

The room was super cute, just enough for 1 person. You'll find a mini bar, coffee and tea. Bathroom and room were very clean! If you arrive for a late check in, nobody will be at the reception (it depends on the season) but all infos will be send you by sms! I was just sad to find nobody when...

Room was very nice, had everything we needed. Rooms are only made up once a week (which we were aware of), but our towels were changed and bins emptied on the third day of our stay, which was great. Located in the centre of Bergen, only a short walk from the port and shopping centre. The staff were friendly and...

A small, but clean hotel. The staff was professional and very helpful. Great location only a short walk from inner city of Bergen. Lift and secure hotel. Missing breakfast, but a good café only 100meters from the hotel. All in all, a good hotel with low prices.

Near to most attractions, many eateries and supermarkets nearby. Walking to bus and train station takes about 15 mins. Room is quite spacious. Love the big pillows, good sleep. Though stay at 2nd floor, not noisy as most review mentioned. Maybe did not stay on weekends
