We went to this hotel last summer from August 4th to August 9h. Even though the room was clean, but too small for two people, and quiet. The breakfast was good enough to say that it is worth it to come for a short stay in Bergen. Also the location was perfect. Really close to the Bus and Train Station...

All Rica hotels became Scandic a year or two ago, including this one. As far as I can remember, the name "Byparken" is also a novelty (and I'm not sure which park it refers to). I have stayed here several times when it was a Rica hotel, but it's been two or three years since my last stay. The reception...

Dear Arvehj. Thank you for taking the time to write this review, I really appreciate it. The name actually refers to the park with the pavilion between Festplassen and Ole Bull's Plass, just 50 meters from the hotel. The park is the core of a central axis in Bergen city, which goes from the Public Library to the National Theatre....

I had a decent room, not very big, with little place for storage, facing an internal wall, but the bed was very good, the location in Bergen excellent, and the breakfast almost sublime! This, of course, is an european style breakfast, with the norwegian touch: a buffet, with a lot of cold plates. Sure, there is the eggs and bacon,...

Good location with an easy, friendly check in. The room was clean and comfortable but the stand out was definitely the buffet breakfast. There were so many options to choose from and the smoothie shots were fantastic although would have been more enjoyable with some ice. Overall a great stay

Perfect location...close to all main tourist places to visit, within walking distance and breakfast is very good for a small hotel like that. Small but clean and very organized ...nice ambiance for day or night.

Whilst the family room we had was an odd shape, in that it was long and thin, and even though there was very little storage space in the room I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this hotel. Its not the best, and not the most spacious, space is limited in the reception area too, however, the location is great in that...
