Great Bergen location
Location is excellent, near the beautiful park and easy peasy walk to the train station. The room was tiny but at least there was a little bedside table and accessible power plug. Great breakfast.

Wonderful visit in Bergen
Lovely hotel with gracious and helpful staff. The breakfast buffet was extraordinary and delicious. Location also good ,,, except for the street noise of revelers and new students drinking at night. Our room was very hot as it was warm outside so it felt very stuffy without air conditioning. Mostly enjoyed our stay very much.

Too expensive and less beds
We booked a room with two queen beds and a sleeper couch. However, we got a room with one queen bed and a queen mattress on the floor (may be a pullout couch. At a price of $250 for one night it was not a high standard room.
