Day 4, Bergen We flew from Stockholm to Bergen via Oslo. We stayed in Grand Hotel Terminus which is just next to the train station. From there we booked the famous "Norway in a Nut Shell". We went for a short walk around the city, but due to the wet weather, we did not managed to see much.

Once more here is a delayed update, typed on Charles' laptop, this time coming from Bergen in Norway. Again, there is no wireless at our hotel, the "Hotel Grand Terminus", and we don't have time to find a netcafe, so we are hoping that better facilities in the next hotel, in Stockholm, will provide an outlet to upload this entry and the one after. …

... we we're advised to expect to always pay several times what we would expect; advice which has turned out to be sound! For example, two takeaway meals from the market eaten on plastic plates under an umbrella cost us around 490 Norwegian, this is roughly £50 and just over $100 NZ dollars. Whilst everything is very expensive, one can be assured that one will always get top quality! We flew to Bergen directly from London Heathrow. After ...

... a small fjord. Some of our group were already here & went for a (very quick) swim - mad! It's about 18 degrees c and very windy. I'm settling for a cuppa before we get the bus into Bergen later. We managed to get the tent up (although had to remove some posts that were blocking cars from going on the grass first) and we're just hoping the wind doesn't get up any more & ...

... but picnicking was prohibited so off we set again till we found one with grass covered roofs over the shelters etc and a lovely view across a lake. Not hard to find such a place really.

Again we tried to find a ‘Stave’ church that had been described in the tourist info but again missed it. We did however, in the diversion we took, manage to negotiate down the ‘Steepest’ road in Norway. ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Terminus Bergen

    Traffic Noise

    from

    weather very hot so had to sleep with windows open and as hotel backs on to a very busy road it was very noisy !.Staff ok but rooms well past it and in need of referb.Location right next to railway station only good thing about hotel but as Bergen has a free bus from the bus station which is next door to the railway station right into the harbour area makes its location not such a great advantage.Overall not a possitive experience and well over priced.

    Nice hotel

    from

    We are a family of 4 adults and stayed there for 2 nights.

    Great Location

    from

    We stayed here for three nights at the end of July. Transportation-wise, the hotel is in a great location. We came from the airport by bus, and the bus station and train station are right next door, as well as a shopping mall with a number of low cost restaurants. It's at one end of downtown Bergen but still only a ten minute walk from the wharfs, tourist info etc. The breakfast was good. I wish they had served dinner, but that's not an option. There's one Internet terminal which seemed to be in use most of the time. It was hot during our stay, and the hotel is not air conditioned, but we had three windows, left them wide open and had a wonderful breeze.

    We would stay here again.

    Good location and breakfast, but that's all

    from

    I consulted with tripadvisor on all the hotels for my recent Scandinavian tour and this was the only one where I think the other user's reviews were more positive than maybe they should have been.

    Good hotel with convenient location!

    from

    I stayed 2 nights at this hotel.

    Convenient Location and Decent Price

    from

    I just returned from a trip to Norway and stayed at this hotel as part of the Fjord Pass Accommodations which is sold with the Norway in a Nutshell tour. The hotel is very convenient - right across the street from the train station and a block from the bus station. The old hotel has a beautiful lobby and stairs area - but my room was pretty much what I expected. Small, but decent sized for a single, with quite a small bathroom/shower - a bit worn, but adequately clean. The breakfast is really great - a huge spread with fresh bread and all kinds of cold cuts, etc. - a true Norwegian breakfast. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the wharf - but you walk through pretty cobblestoned streets so I didn't mind that at all. I paid 625NK/nite (including the single supplement) and it was just fine for what I needed. I wasn't overwhelmed, but I was pleased, and would stay here again.

    Close to the railway station

    from

    Stayed in this hotel with friends in June. As we wanted to do a Fjord trip we chose this hotel as it was very convenient located across the main train station in Bergen. Taxi rank situated outside the hotel. If you have to walk to the fish market or to the town center it will be a 10 min walk. Shopping malls are closer by, one on the other side of the train station, about 3 min walk (good for the rainy weather in Bergen) or further to the town center. The hotel itself has a very nice, English style looking lobby, the bar, where you can sit and have afternoon tea or a drink. Unfortunately the Dinner options are not very good. They offered us an "Scandinavian Buffet Dinner" one evening which turned out to be just an average sandwich buffett and 2 hot dishes which nobody could explain what it was or even made out of. They only offer some small dishes, bistro style in the breakfast room till 5pm, no Dinner! So I decided to chose a wonderful and local fish restaurant, the "Unicorn", which was located at the Bryggen area. Expensive but really worth chosing it!!! Breakfast in the hotel was good. They had a wonderful and delicous bread made out of yeast which was very yummy. Breakfast was a sort of buffet style, but I didn´t saw anybody doing waffles or fresh scrambled eggs, like mentioned in a earlier review. Maybe he or she was on holidays??? The single room was ok, old style. The bathroom was very small, you could stand outside the bathroom and wash your fingers from there, without stepping inside! The shower cabinet was open on the floor, so every time I took a shower, the WHOLE bathroom floor was overflooded, it seems that this is a common thing in Norway. The negative thing in the bathroom was the terrible smell which always came up after flushing the toilet. No tea and coffee making facilities are available and the rooms are very noisy for the neighbour rooms. You can hear people talking.

    What a lovely old fashioned surprise

    from

    Next to the railway station, but quiet and secluded, we checked in with trepidation into the oldest (1928) 'luxury' class hotel in Bergen.

    It's an old fashioned delight.

    Perhaps we were spoiled or lucky, but we were upgraded to a large room (described as a small suite). beautifully furnished, spacious, bathroom plumbing fine, TV & all mod cons.

    The public rooms, bar/lounge were timber panelled and staff actually cared!

    Full of ambience.

    And the breakfast was as good and as large as anything in Scandinavia including a lady making the waffles in front of your eyes.

    A real find. Privately owned by an apparently caring man, and competitively (it is still Norway!) priced.

    Lovely!
