The hotel is a superb hotel but a bit "tired" (at least when we were there), this + low season were probably the reason for the low price which was superb value for the large, comfortable, well equipped suite that we have received. So this may have been a singular opportunity. Hotel is classic style with heavy beautiful furniture, but... More

The hotel receptionist was charming and efficient with the speediest check-in ever. The hotel is in a lovely location overlooking the water with the heritage buildings of Bryggre just a few steps away. The room was large, warm and clean. I'd definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for three days while on vacation a little over a week ago. It was for the most part, a very pleasant stay.

Situated a short walk from the major attractions, restaurants and shops in Bergen, this hotel was a great choice for our 4 day stay. Our first room had gorgeous views out over the city.

The good thing about this hotel -- excellent location. We were staying in a Junior Suite, which was spacious, but furniture and decor are dated. Carpet in the corridor smells and has a lot of old dirty spots. Breakfast was poor and the breakfast room was not organized and properly cleaned during breakfast time.

All in all a good hotel, great service and excellent location in the heart of Hansa town Bergen. Needs a bit attention on the cleaning, some upgrading interior at the rooms and perhaps somewhat more variation on the dinner menu. Otherwise I recomend a stay.
