  • 6.0.Good

    Great location. Just a few minutes walk from the light rail stop and walking distance to the Bryggen area too.The room looked very run down. We were there during the heat wave and it was extremely hot. The hotel does not have AC and did not have enough fans for everyone either. We had a very time sleeping. Breakfast was very good with a lot of varieties.

    Excellent location

    Room was a bit small but still comfortable. We had an issue but the manager quickly resolved by the manager. What we loved the most is the location! Walking distance to transportation and tourist attractions

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Great breakfasts!

    Just stayed overnight before picking up a cruise boat. The economy room was small but comfy bed, nice bathroom and all very clean. Best thing was breakfast. A huge range of hot and cold food. Really appreciated they had a selection of gluten free breads (I'm gluten intolerant). Very close to airport bus stop and short walk to tourist parts of Bergen. Would stay again.
