"Well located hotel with compact, comfortable room"
Arrived to a friendly welcome from reception and the key to a Superior double room with a magnificent view of the Bryggen area, directly across the water, which is stunning, though I noted the balcony was shared, good job we noticed before we got changed! So really well located, but not noisy, which is really good. We thought maybe we'd be disturbed by the fact that there were some tables outside on the waterfront, but it was a bit cold for that, perhaps if it's warm it could get noisy outside so be aware of this when you're choosing a room. I noted that there were large tour groups arriving and leaving everyday, which made reception hectic at times. Room is quite small, standard for Bergen I think, but very comfortable and clean and modern, with a nice big LCD TV. Bathroom was pretty small.
Note that the breakfast etc timings may vary from the written information you're given due to "summer hours" so make sure you check with reception as to when breakfast is, we nearly got caught out with this. Having said that, breakfast was a fantastic Smorgosbord, including smoked salmon & mackerel, rollmops, cheese, eggs, sausages, mushrooms, fried potatoes, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, bread and pastries. They even had mussels one morning! Be sure to get there early, though there seemed to be plenty of seating, even for the huge tour group contingent. We had a drink in the reception bar once, staffed by nice barman. I spend 120 NOK on a Stout he recommended and it was almost worth it!
