... in Scandinavia. Into Bergen railway station and waited 50 mins for a taxi to our hotel near the historic waterfront. Went for traditional walk around the neighbourhood side-stepping puddles and sheltering from now intermittent rain. A food and beer festival taking place in the old quarter so lots of people and activity taking ...
... that Nan had pre-ordered. These cards pre-paid our entry to the many tourist attractions and also travel on the trains, trams and buses. Thankfully we returned to our hotel just in time for dinner as Peter and I didn’t want to miss our only meal of the day - we were looking forward to the many salad dishes served on the buffet.
After dinner Nan, Aunt Sal, Peter and I went for a walk along the beautiful harbour ...
... berthed in Bergen for the day. You can see why so many tourists are attracted to this place as the harbour setting is just magical.
The following morning we treated ourselves to a late start then made our way to tour The Rosenkrantz Tower (1560) and Hakons Hall (1247) which were both reduced to rubble then lovingly restored following the explosion of a Japanese ship in Bergen harbour in 1944. Once again ...
... recharge, before catching up with some of Lauren's Norweigan friends at thier house :)
Linn and Annike were very friendly, was great to hear about Norway from a locals perspective, and visit a local house, it definitly gives you a different perspective of the country then when you are just being a tourist doing touristy things :) we eventually got a lift back to the hotel and got some rest as we would be up early tomorrow to catch the first of 3 planes home.
... 05). One of the guards just said to get on and then pay onboard. [We got a discount with the Eurail pass and it cost 195 NOK each.] We sat down and were chatting away to a couple from England, while a bit of commotion went on in the background. Soon we were approached by a uniformed man who told us that this end of the train was reserved for the cruise ship passengers, who'd come up in the train from Flam - so we had to walk through to the very last carriage before we found a ...

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.
