... of Squirrel-cheek storage. With that, I am now able to store at least two meals' worth of food, on top of the nine days' worth I can already hold in my three stomachs. This is pure genius!!!
Finally, after all of that, then comes the last step - while it doesn't actually involve learning any new skills, or any further surgical modifications, it does depend on drawing upon my genetics, and calling upon the art of being a cheap Chinese person, something ...
... but probably not necessarily worthy of the billing as the most beautiful train ride in the world. I personally felt that he Oslo Bergen trip had it down, but maybe I'm just being picky. It was very nice, and we saw snow again, so that was cool. That train ride took about two hours, so we didn't get back to the campsite until late, had dinner, and then pretty much went straight to bed. And we we now officially caught up. Yay! I feel much less pressured now. I ...
Up early and after messing around not sure doing what, we arrived at the Kaupanger wharf the same time as the ferry and therefore at the end of the queue. For a moment we were concerned that we would not get on as the ferry was smaller than previous ones we had been on. However, all was well and we just fitted in at the back. We had ordered a sunny day similar to most others we have experienced (against the odds ...
... I'm a fat lazy dweeb with the will-power of sand, but yay look at me!" Hideous losers.
I don't think the locals are used to outsiders bothering to climb up themselves, especially not this time of year. The locals that I passed all looked at me like a circus freak. I felt like that policeman in The Wicker Man. I'm not implying all the locals are weirdos, I'm just saying that maybe they normally put foreigners into large wicker effigies and set them on fire ...
... Szechuan, but although we arrived at 9 p.m. and the café was not supposed to close until ten, a sour-faced waitress refused to serve us so we left. On the way to the hotel, we found another Chinese restaurant, Guangdong House, and our reception this time was very different. We had a nice dinner there to celebrate Anna’s birthday, and a happier trio walked back to the hotel after ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Admiral Bergen
Great location and service
Two of us stayed at this hotel for three nights, we found the staff at Reception very helpful, When we had problems getting back in to the (public) underground car park (instructions were all in Norwegian), a lady from Reception came with us to ensure we could get in!!
The breakfasts were good with plenty of choice, though being a big hotel it does get busy. One evening we decided to have an meal in the resturuant from the al a cart menu, when we got the bill, they had not charged for the desserts, upon us pointing this out the head waitress said honesty should rewarded and did not charge us for the desserts! Our room though a little small did have a balcony with views of the harbour.
Over all I would recomend this hotel.
The hotel has a good location right on the water front. That is the end of the good news.
Stayed here with another couple in early Aug so we booked 2 rooms. The staff at the reception was fine but when we have further query the manager on duty was very rude.
I was a little nervous about this hotel having read other reviews, and expected a small room. My double room measured 21 feet by 12 feet. Pretty big by any standard! I suspect the harbour view rooms are smaller, but I could see the harbour if I leaned slightly out of the window! So I recommend room 537.
Good location/great room
Had already booked, so read previous reviews with some trepidation. Our room on the 6th floor had a fantastic view across the harbour. Both the room and bathroom were large with plenty of space for luggage. Breakfast was busy, but no more than many other hotels. Reception and restaurant staff were very helpful. Great location. Would thoroughly recommend - definitely worth the supplement for harbour view.
Basically, don't stay here unless the other hotels in Bergen are full. On arrival the receptionist was rude and unhelpful. They didn't give us basic info such as the time of breakfast, or offer to make a dinner reservation for us (which was required if you wanted to eat in the over-rated restaurant). The room was tiny with hardly enough space to walk around the bed and there was nowhere to store the suitcase so we had to jump over it to get past. Breakfast was chaotic. Guests were fighting for tables which the staff refused to re-lay. That evening there was confusion over our tariff. The receptionist refused to believe that "half board" included dinner and told me I was wrong and had to pay. When the manager eventually corrected her there was no apology whatsoever. This was our first experience of Norway - thankfully the service improved after we moved on. Definitely one to avoid!!
Great place, and convenient!
My mom and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights at the end of Scandinavian trip. Had a nice view of the bay. We were totally impressed by the breakfast buffet (great food, great view). It was centrally located for all of Bergen's sites, and the staff were very helpful.
Just returned from a 10 day tour of Norway and stayed for 2 nights at this hotel in Bergen. Great location and views, right on the water. Very well managed, clean and modern. This hotel is a top-end 3-star, with 4-star qualities. Restaurant was excellent, and the piano player in the bar at night was a pleasant surprise. Would stay there again.
