Too noisy outside at night, even in 4 Floor, music until 3, screaming until 5 at night, in the middle of the week. Never more! The bed was ok. Smoke comes in through the ventilation? Ok bed. Too expensive for the standard.

We stayed two nights in Bergen while on vacation. We arrived late at night, so the reception was not staffed (only daytime). We got thorough information on how to get inside by SMS and mail, though, and were happy to see the quality of the room on the 5th floor. Although the floor in the room was not very clean,...

As the name suggests, the hotel is very "basic" and doesn't include many extra amenities that travelers may take for granted, but the website is very clear about what exactly is/isn't included. The hotel is located very close to the city center and it's a short walk to Bryggen, as well as many other major attractions. The Wi-Fi was fast...

Very central location - all places of interest within a walking distance. Plenty of shops / bars / around. Good base for jogging/walking lovers - you can have a nice scenery evening/morning run alongside the Bergen bay Vagen. Big comfortable bed, TV with plenty of English programs. The room was not soundproof though - you can hear the music from...

As the name said, it was basic. No hot water facilities in the room. Coffee/tea only on 2nd floor and it costs 10kr. Not very clean: furnitures were dusty, floors were sandy. Noisy from bar next door into the early hours, even on a weeknight.

I had my luggage delayed when I moved in to the hotel. The staff was very helpful by assisiting me to contact the relevant person. He was polite and patient and really gave me great comfort in that situation. The hotel is clean and comfortable.

Nice enough hotel, very basic as the name suggests, room is clean but there is no housekeeping. There is a kettle and fridge in the room but you must bring your own tea/coffee etc. It's located in the city centre but next to nightclubs so a top floor room away from the noise is advisable.

Almost the same location as the somewhat cheaper P-hotels, but the main difference is that this place offers a good night’s sleep. On the other hand, they do not offer any kind of breakfast, but that can hardly be expected at such low prices. Neither ca a good view. But on the other hand, my stay was care free, and...
