... for bed shortly after midnight, the skies were still clear and blue, very much looking like 5.00pm in the afternoon. Our first full day in the city was the best weather wise. It was very hot, (much hotter than back in the UK) and sunny. We spent the morning exploring the UNESCO site with all of the historic houses and shops. Highlights included a fur shop seedling wolf and polar bear skins as well as sampling some delicious local pastry. We ...
to Langesund in Norway. The journey is 4.5 hours long & cost us £30. Our destination later on is Valle, which
apparently is about another 120 miles away, along winding roads - looking
forward to those.
Last night we did our good deed & fed 4
others, Sarah, John, Racquel & Steve (who we nicknamed Bob to save
confusion) They had car trouble (lotus) and hadn't been able to get food. We

Just a little further down from the fish market is Old Bryggen, a UNESCO world heritage sight. The homes here are large-timber homes built so long ago that a lot of them are pretty crooked. Furthermore, the alleyways in between them are made of wooden planks. And we wonder why cities like this burnt so easily! Fortunately, these survived all of the other fires that burnt down nearby ...
... into town for a rest before embarking on a walking tour of the old Hanseatic city which is UNESCO Wold Heritage Listed.
This tour took in three museums which cover different aspects of the Hanseatic city. We started in the museum which houses some of the remains of part of the city that burned down in the 1950's. When they did an archeological dig they found remains ...
... Sunday Star Ledger. We went down to dinner and sat with Ron & Pat, Maggie, Elise & her husband. Since three of them were lawyers and three of them had been in human resources, they talked shop. No buffet tonight, we had table service. The meal began with an asparagus & prosciutto salad. I had ordered the chicken which was good. Desert for me was ice cream and fruit. We returned to the room to wash clothes and watch the movie ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Det Hanseatiske Hotell Bergen
La ubicación es PERFECTA...está justo en el centro de Bergen al lado del agua. Tampoco es TAN exageradamente caro teniendo en cuenta los precios de Noruega. La habitación era una maravilla, grande y con estilo. El baño tenía tanto una bañera grande con patas como una buena ducha independiente.
Great little hotel (16 rooms) .. flat panel LCD TV.. big fat king sized bed.. seating area.. nice desk.. but watch out for room 31..
Mein Mann und ich verbrachten in diesem Hotel unsere Hochzeitsnacht. Dieses Hotel wurde vor kurzem in Bergen eröffnet und ist komplett renoviert worden, aber in den Zimmern wurden ein paar alte Details belassen, was den Zimmern meiner Meinung nach Charme verleiht.
Very nice hotel
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for our wedding night. This hotel recently opened in Bergen and it is totaly renovated, but still they kept some old touches in the rooms, which I really think gives some charm to the rooms. Our room was very nice (we stayed at Junior suite), with really great big bathroom and bathtub. Breakfast was great too, with nice selection of food.
Staff were friendly and helpful, although some of them were clearly new and a tad inexperienced...but overall very good. Location for all sightseeing could not be better, with the funicular station a few minutes' walk up the street and fishingmarked right across the street. We really recommed this hotel if you want something more charming, than just standard rooms!! :)
This hotel provides an excellent base for exploring this charming town. Natural wood and traditional styling abound. The only possible criticisms were that our otherwise comfortable and well-appointed suite was too dark..i.e. the lighting was certainly more style than substance! I appreciate that it gets dark early at this time of year but much greater lux values are necessary in a room of this sort. As a family of three, we actually stumbled our way round the smallish room to get dressed etc, which was a shame as this really is a minor criticism of what was a very happy stay. Staff were friendly and helpful, although some of them were clearly new and a tad inexperienced...but overall very good. Location for all sightseeing could not be better, with the funicular station a few minutes' walk up the street.
Small but perfectly formed
The location of this hotel couldn't be better - less than a minute from the Torget, a few minutes stroll from Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf and right in the centre of town.
The room we stayed in was small enough, but had everything you could want. The bed was very comfy, and the decor, fittings, bed linens and everything in the room was really high quality, and very impressive. The room, and hotel, had great charm.
I'd be happy to stay there again, and would highly recommend it.
Hotel staff we friendly, helpful and made good recommendations.
This was one of the best surprises on our trip to Norway. As the hotel has only opened in May, I suppose I was expecting a few hitches that go with a new establishment - how wrong was I !!! This is a very "can do" place, no request was too much. We arrived on the boat from Balestrand at 12 and were given immediate access to our room. They sorted internet problems we were having with our laptop, recommended somewhere for lunch, booked dinner and sorted our laundry, all in the space of 20 minutes. Well, so what you may say; we would generally say similar, however these were problems for us in similarly priced establishments in other places in Norway (in one hotel, which only opens 10 months of the year, we were informed the laundry lady was on holidays!!).
We actually booked the First Hotel Marin but on arrival we were told that it was full and that they were putting us in this hotel instead. What a stroke of luck!! One of the nicest hotels I've stayed in ever! We got a suit which was quite big, had 2 TVs, large bed, 2 comfortable chairs, plenty of storage, big bathroom with bath, walk in shower, 2 sinks and the toilet was separate again. The hotel is right in the heart of the town but we didn't hear a thing from outside or other people the whole time we were there. Fantastic hotel and a fantastic weekend in Bergen!!
