You're not going to stay cheap in Bergen unless you're couch surfing with friends, so given that you're going to spend between $65 and $300 per night anyway, Citybox Bergen becomes an interesting choice. We stayed in the second tier up from the smallest room for two, and it was plenty big. The bed was really big by Scandinavian standards. Yes, the room and the bathroom were tight, but would I have paid $40 more for a room down the street for an extra three feet of space for a few hours? No. The staff was helpful, and it's a good location for many common destinations within walking distance. Was quiet. Comfortable bed. Very clean. Responsive thermostat.

We spent one night here in advance of our cruise with Hurtigruten. The place is clean, comfy and appears newly renovated. It is a bit thinly staffed - with automated check in and a "concierge" that is an iPad. Still, everything went fine and it's close enough to the city center to be convenient. As a drummer, I loved that there was a huge drum

Hi gavisphere,

thank you for taking the time to write a review.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us!
You are correct that we have self-service check in machines, and that Mr Boxworthy greets you as our concierge from the big touch screen in the lobby, however, we also have a Citybox Host located at the hotel 24/7. The Host office is located in between the two elevators on the first floor of the hotel :)

We wish you a nice week!

Kind regards

Stayed here for 2 nights in August as a couple. They had the comfiest bed I think I've ever slept on! We were in a small double which was enough space for us and all our luggage. There was a washing machine and dryer that we used that accepted coins. On the ground floor there was a communal fridge, microwave, sink and kettle and seating area which was helpful as we bought food from the supermarket over the road. There was also a communal television. The wifi speed was super fast. The location is very central and also next to a Bergen bike stand which was a fun way to explore. 5 min walk to the station and bus stop. We had a great time and would definitely recommend.

The hotel had a Good location close to the city centre. A good option if you want a cheap and good hotel. Smart solution with check in and check out. The staff wasn't all too helpful when there was some trouble with the booking. The beds and the rooms were good. Not so much more to say.

This automated hotel is a great choice in low budget. You check in on a machine an dthe room is modern, small but has everything except a fridge. Also not enough towels but they have a 24 hours office that will give you extra towels and help you out. I have will use this hotel again!

Dear ThereseTheTraveller,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

We are happy to hear that you would like to stay with us again, and that you enjoyed our value for money. By not changing the towels every day, and a few other smart solutions like the self-service check-in machines, we are able to keep our running expenses down, and in that way, we are also able to offer our rooms at a lower rate than a lot of our competitors. It also helps us to be kinder to the environment, when we do not preform daily cleaning of the rooms.
However, as you say, it is always possible to go to the Citybox Host office if one wishes to have extra towels :)

We wish you a nice day!

Warm regards
