Zander K Hotel
Ranked #21 of 50 Hotels in Bergen
Reviewed 19 August 2017

Stayed here for 2 nights. Its a pleasant, modern hotel that caters for large tours, so can get very busy. We had lovely rooms - clean and modern. Breakfast was ok, but very busy. Really handy for 10 minute walk into central Bergen and directly opposite the main railway station to Oslo.

Zander K is a new hotel situated just behind the train station. It is also convenient if you take the light rail or the bus from the airport. The rooms are quite large and very comfortable. I did sleep very well. The bathrooms are large too with nicely scented soap and shampoo/shower gel. The breakfast is excellent except for the fruit and the fruit juices. There is a large choice of things to eat, for instance the smoked salmon trout and mackerel and the traditional brown cheese. Since there are a lot of tourists going for day tours, it is better to have breakfast after 7.30 or even after 8.00. One night I had dinner at the hotel and it was delicious: I was served steamed mussels with a fennel salad. Coffee and tea are complimentary (next to the elevators). At the hotel there is also a well equipped gym.

Boutique hotel taken to its extremes: very modern and new, but looking purely at what is delivered it's really a basic 3-star. Pros and cons:
* Stylishness, e.g. the wording of the restaurant menu is hilarious
* Friendlyt staff
* Free use of washing machine of Terminus hotel nextdoor, next to offering dry cleaning service during the week
* Free coffee/tea service downstairs
* Location next to station
But compensated by
* Really smallish rooms, e.g. no wardrobe (only hangers on the wall for clothing)
* B'fast not bad but e.g. hardly fresh fruit
Recommended for a 3-star price only unless one really wants to pay more for the stylishness

Very nice hotel close to train station, but a little farther away from Bryggen. Excellent breakfast. We had a junior suite which was a good size with plenty of room for my husband, myself, and two teenagers. The interior design of the hotel is inspired by the rain common in Bergen, so that was interesting, too. Would stay here again.

I stayed at the Zander K Hotel twice in July and had a wonderful experience both times; it's not cheap, but for what you get & relative to other Bergen hotels, the $130+ is worth it if you can afford it (you'll have a hard time finding anything decent in Bergen for under $100). The hotel is in a small street (an alley, really) across from the train station, so none of the rooms have any view to speak of, except of the train station for those that directly face it; but the convenience of the location more than offsets the lack of any view & I didn't hear any noise from trains coming into or leaving the train station. The bus station is on the other side of the train station, so you won't need a taxi to get to either; and the hotel is only a 10-15 minutes walk from the Brygge (depending on how fast you walk) & all the 'action' in central Bergen; being slightly removed from all of that & in a quiet side street makes this location ideal. The rooms are medium-sized but feel luxurious; the bathrooms are ultra-modern & the beds are comfy; the TV gets Sky News & I only wish they had the BBC on the line-up instead, but that's a small quibble about a hotel that was one of the most enjoyable hotel experiences I've ever had anywhere. The breakfast is spectacular, the best of any hotel in Norway that I stayed in, and the staff is incredibly helpful, professional & friendly, in total contrast with the staff at the City Apartments Hotel where I stayed before moving over to the Zander K, which was like going from Dante's purgatorio to hotel heaven.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have views of anything except maybe the train station across the street, so pick a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Bergen's most modern hotel. Modern people in any age group find “design hotel” an out-of-date description – and even a bit silly. This is a view shared by Claesson Koivisto Rune, the architects who have helped create Zander K. Design is of course an important element of the overall hotel experience (Zander K is both beautiful and trendy), but the aspiration has been to express a state of mind, a philosophy, an idea resonating with the pulse of our times – with origin in concepts like ambition/presence/functionality/durability/ecology. ... more   less
