The hotel has an excellent location. Just behind Bryggen with its famous quayside buildings, less than 5 minutes walk to the funicular up mount Floien, 5 from the fish market and about 15 to the railway station. The flybussen from the airport takes you just up the road to the radisson blu hotel. Just don't expect too many signs or... More

Couldn't have been happier with this place for our two night visit. Took the bus from the airport to within two blocks of the hotel. Very spacious room and lovely breakfast included. The location is perfect, short walk to the Bryggen and boat dock. The staff was especially helpful with directions and great restaurant recommendations.

Hotel, good location couldn't ask for better so 9/10. Room was warm although really big. Only slight disappointment was the breakfast - the "hot" food was cold. Would stay again as it's good value for money

The First Hotel Marion is perfectly located in the centre of Bergen. It's only a few minutes walk to Bryggen and the Floyen station. Nice rooms, good breakfast and friendly Hotel staff. Would go there anytime again.

Torn carpet, battered paint, shower over bath which sprayed more on the floor than you, poor housekeeping as in dirty, and car noise made this hotel a poor choice in Bergen. Plus was helpful staff and great location but no way compensates for the negatives. Stay elsewhere.
