Very good stay, enjoyed the weather and ambience. Location was also good. Breakfast was very good. Staff were very friendly and helped me in all aspects since I was very new to Norway. The proximity to local transport was very good like cab service etc.

The hotel is well-located, in the centre and next to the main train station. However, the square outside the hotel is very dirty and full of litter and people begging and fighting. The room was fairly clean, but very small. It was very noisy at night and neither we nor our children slept well. The other guests were generally loud...

A decent hotel but thin walls, dirty and old carpets in the hallways. The cleaning of the room is ok, but they seem to cheat abbot with it. The breakfast is served in a restaurant next door. Central location but that's all.

We were offered an upgrade to a Superior Family room before we arrived at a low price. As we had stayed at this hotel in a standard room, we took the opportunity. It was well worth the extra cost, as the standard room was very tight for two people plus luggage, although the view of the bay was great. Staff...

We arrived at 11:00 pm after a long but great Norway in a nutshell tour from Bergen. Arrived late, but took the time to write the hotel about our late arrival. The reception and the bar makes one. Our daughter was sleeping in her stroller at arrival. 5 adults arrived at the same time and stood at the bar for...

We stayed in a family room at this hotel for 5 nights. The room is very small, but clean and comfortable. For 5 nights, it was a bit cramped and no where to really store clothes (there is a hanging rack with about 5 hangers, but no drawers at all). They did have a free laundry machine for use which...

This hotel has friendly staff, comfortable beds, it's in a superb location and the showers are hot. The included breakfast was very good, the only downside is that room sizes are small and when travelling with 2 bags it's difficult to find room. Overall great and would stay again!
