The Nordkapp docked at Bergen on Wednesday afternoon about 2-30pm We were off quickly and a short taxi ride took us to our hotel, Hotel Augustin. This is an historic hotel, right near the harbour front and it is the place that Amunsden stayed at before his North Pole expedition. We have a fantastic room on the corner with windows on three sides and …
I didn't think anywhere would challenge my love for Helsinki but this place has definetely given it a run for it's money.
Bergen is truly spectacular. The second biggest city in Norway it is surrounded by fjords to the west and mountains to the north, east and south. The biggest highlight though is that it is a …
I've never written an entry on my accommodation before but this time it deserves it. Not only is it located close to the harbour, famous sites and the city centre, but it is the most welcoming hotel I've been too. That's saying a lot because I love the hotels in Helsinki (4 star) and Inari, but this one beats them all.
My room is huge. Not …
Theallansons stayed here on Aug 1, 2010 during their trip titled: Around the World in 70 Days.
Bob -one more thing about our expensive dinner last night, Bob had Norweigan cod, a non endangered species, while Shirley had a whale steak which tasted and looked just like beef. We do not know what kind of whale it was. We walked through the outdoor fish market today where they had all sorts of fresh and smoked fish and the whale looked ghastly, …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Huge room, a bath which I find important, free coffee and tea in the lounge and get this a waffle maker to make your own waffles, no charge. The hotel is also located close to the water and the city centre.

Historical Traveler Reviews Augustin Hotel Bergen
Was looking forward to staying here after reading reviews but when arrived was told hotel over booked and they had arranged accomadation in another hotel. Attitude of staff disappointing. Didn't really care and went on to say was very common to overbook.
From what I saw of the hotel we did not miss much - street and reception area looked quite shabby but admittedly did not see rooms. In general dissapointed with Bergen (had three days there- think two is plenty). When going again will spend more time in the fjords!
We chose the Augustin as it was at the 'budget' end of the hotels we could find online. I now know there are various others eg CityBox which promise true budget travel, as well as the horrendously expensive luxury hotels.
Nice Friendly Hotel
My daughter and I stayed here one night, Its very quiet, clean and the staff are friendly in addition the restaurant is very good quality food with excellant service and used I noticed by a lot of locals which is a good sign. Breakfast was good quality typical Norewgian fare. Its the other side of the quay from the Bryggen but its a short walk, I would stay again.
What a great find!!! The Augustin Hotel was perfect in every way! Front desk staff were very kind and helpful (they speak English as well). We had 3 rooms and each was large and comfortable. The bathrooms were modern. The breakfast buffet was much more than we expected, and everything was fresh and tasty. The Altona Bar is a real treasure - don't miss seeing this historic place. The artwork, architecture and flowers found throughout the hotel add to the charm and ambiance. There is free computer and internet access in the lobby, as well as a coffee/tea bar available 24 hours a day. Umbrellas are also available in the lobby (there was a fine mist most days). We would definitely stay here on our next visit. We highly recommend The Augustin for quality, comfort, location and value.
We must have been lucky with our room as it was huge. It was on the 5th floor right at the back of the hotel, overlooking a pedestrian shopping street.
i have stayed at this hotel a few times on buisness over the past 3 years. But its also good as a tourist hotel. Its in a nice and fairly quiet location good for all areas of bergen centre. THe staff are friendly and i have always found them helpful and fairly knowledgable.
My 14 year old son and I were in a junior suite which was a large room. Yes the bathroom was a little cramped, but really no different than most european hotel rooms.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I needed to do laundry and needed help with operating the guest dryer. When it was determined that the dryer was broken, a housekeeping dryer was made available to me.
The front desk staff gave good directions and overall we enjoyed our stay there. And yes, the breakfast was very good.
Ok, but not special
Good location, but nothing special. Small room and old bathroom. We stayed in much better in other cities around Scandinavia. Breakfast was good and overall value was fair.
i stayed at the augustin for 3 nights at the end of may 2004. the room was spacious for european standards. the continental breakfast included in the rate was extensive; enough to keep you going for the day. the hotel lobby has a wonderful lounge that has self serve coffee, tea and make your own waffles in the afternoon; a wonderful way to relax after a day of sight seeing. the old wine cellar is wonderful for a meal and a glass of wine. The hotel also has a restaurant on premise that serves light fare. the location of the hotel is ok. not in the center of town. a 5 minute walk to the central fish market and square. it is nice and quiet and i would highly recommend it. everyone was wonderul and very helpfu.
We stayed at this charming Hotel in Bergen for a couple of nights during the week of the Bergen Festival. Comfortable, clean and well priced accomodation. This hotel had a large collection of art throughout the rooms and corridors in the hotel. Our room although not huge was on the corner of the building and had windows on three sides with a stunning view over the harbour to Bryggen and out to sea. Reception kindly let us take our room early as we arrived by train in the early morning. We had emailed them beforehand to advise them of this and had prompt courteous and friendly replies to our enquiry. The restaurant was comparitively well priced and the 400year old cellar and wine bar was cozy and welcoming for an evening relaxing and chatting about the day. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Afternoon waffles in the reception lounge bar very welcome after a days sightseeing. We were made to feel very comfortable and at home by the courteous and friendly staff.
