I recommend this hotel. It is convenient and pleasant. It is in the center of Bergen. It has a nice interior and pleasant people at the reception. When it comes to the breakfast I belong to those who like a simpel breakfast and would like to have the coffee at the table, don´t like queues. Thank you for the stay

First Hotel Marine is right in the heart of all the tourist destinations. We walked everywhere and could pop back easily if we needed something. The room was quiet and had a fabulous view. Beds were so comfortable! Breakfast included so many different options.

This hotel offers real family room with two twin beds and a two good chairs and a place to work. It's very central only one minute away from Fløybanen and the fish marked. Easy paring in the hotel and easy access to the rooms from the parking.

Located in the Bryggen area of Bergen this hotel is ideal for exploring all the best tourist attractions of Bergen. It is also perfect for getting the funicular railway up the mountain and catching cruises up the fjords. For what you get it is also really good value.
