          Great place to stay!

          This hotel is awesome. I'm staying in the villas so we have our own kitchen just for the 18 rooms. I can go make tea or coffee whenever. For breakfast there will be a chef who will make whatever I want. There is a library/lounge area upstairs and many other gathering areas within the villas.

          This hotel was incredible! I stayed in the newly renovated villas, and the attention to detail was stunning. If you're looking for a quirky, off-the-beaten path place to stay that was built in the early 1700s, this is your spot.

          Traffic Noise


          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


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

          We had a family room which had one room with one double bed and two single beds. There was a nice small LCD TV in the room and the room had nice furniture. However, the room is a little bit small for 4 adults.

          The location is excellent. Near the central station and about 15-20 minutes walking distance from the center of town (Fishermen's market, Tourist info etc.)

          There's no free parking! You have to use the garage nearby. Important tip: If you don't use the car during your stay, it is better to put it on the second floor or higher in the garage (around the corner), because it is cheaper than the 1st floor.

          Breakfast was very good! With a big variety of dishes.

          The hotel also offers some free hot drinks in a nice hall near the lobby. However, the guests use it a lot and there are times when they ran out of hot water/coffee.

          The staff was very friendly and helpful.

          During our stay they had a problem with the wireless internet connection. For some reason they made no effort to solve the problem, though they told us that the problem lasted for more than a week. Didn't like their indifference to the problem.

          There is a free internet spot in the lobby, but you have to stand while using it, and it's not easy to beat the other guests who also await the internet.

          As mentioned by previous reviewers, Bergen (and Norway in general) is very expensive, and we also could'nt find a good restaurant with reasonable prices.

          You should also know, that each car that enters Bergen pays a toll of 15kr - they photograph the cars and send them the bill later. It's good to take in advance good directions for the hotel, because we made a mistake, took the wrong turn and had to re-enter the city. We didn't get the bill yet, but we'll probably have to pay twice.

          Great Location


          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


          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.

          PROS: Good location if you want to be near the rail station. It is directly across a small street. However, Bergen is not a big city and if you have any hotel downtown it will be within 10-15 minutes walk of the train station, or less. Also, the breakfast spread was very nice. Typical Scandinavian buffet, with cold deli meats, cheeses, bread, cereals, fruit, juices, etc. Also some scrambled eggs and bacon/sausages. Plenty of everything and lots of seating.

          CONS: This hotel was very warm (although many hotels do not have air conditioning so if you must have A/C then pick carefully if you are going during a hot season). Did not want to open the windows at bedtime because it was just too noisy outside. We had two rooms on two different sides of the hotel and in both cases there was too much traffic noise, taxi cab driver chatter, etc. I am not a light sleeper so this is rarely an issue for me. Also, one of the rooms I booked was a room with two beds and when I got there it was one single bed and a sofa with bedding (not a fold-out bed). A bit of false advertising if you ask me. The sofa could not sleep a 6 foot person comfortably. The hotel was quite dated; although in the lobby this is "charming," in my room and bathroom it is just "run-down."

          If I go to Bergen again, I will choose elsewhere.

          General commentary on Norway: This country is expensive! Although the hotel and transportation were comparable to the rest of Scandinavia, the food was outrageous. I expect to pay "tourist prices" but this was way beyond that. In Bergen, the typical price for a glass of beer was 9-10 USD. A dinner plate was $40 and up pretty much anywhere nice looking. I ventured off the tourist path a little, where the prices were still at that level but the food and service seemed superior to what I had seen down by the wharf.

          My pricing standard is the Big Mac value meal. Although I never eat at McDonald's while travelling, I sometimes look at the menu to see what they have and how their pricing is. In Bergen, the Big Mac value meal was $11! In Helsinki, $6.50. In Tallinn, $3.70. These are all at McDonalds near the center of the tourist area.

          Good hotel with convenient location!


          I stayed 2 nights at this hotel.

          I have no complaints about this place. The Room itself was not luxious, but really simple and clean. TV with English channel (BBC),hair dryer and mini-bar were equiped at room. Steem iron was not equiped in the room, but I could borrow at gym in the upper floor. Hotel staff were polite and kind, breakfast was really good (variety of fresh foods!!), room was quiet, other customers were polite and matured, I guess.

          The best point of this hotel was convenient location! Next to Bergen central railway station!! Since my main purpose to stay in bergen was going to Fjord via train and boat, so this place was excellent for me. Really great, Less than 1min walk to the station!! And I left bergen by train, it was also good for choosing this place.

          Although this place is a littele far from the central Bergen (port area), in walking distance and Bergen is safe anyway.

          I would like to stay here again when I am in Bergen.

          Convenient Location and Decent Price


          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


          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 didnīt 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.

          This hotel is a good choice for traveller who which to travel by train!

          What a lovely old fashioned surprise


          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.

Food is also expensive by our standards but is very good, fresh and seems like a lot less processed. There is Norwegian brown cheese which is, of course, brown. I wouldn't have probably tried it were it not for our Scandanavian friend Kristina who said try it. She was right. It's very ...
