Desperately in need of a refurbishment. The staff is always pleasant and the location is good. Breakfast is average. Bathrooms are clean, but run down. I have stayed there quite a few times, but they soon have to do some serious upgrade of the building

My room (suite) had furnitures with clearly visible damages on all of them. The toilet seat of wood had cracks in the coating (not very hygenic!) The breakfast was ok, but skip the bacon as it is terrible.

This hotel is a bit outdated to our concern. It really needs some new chairs in the breakfast room and some painting. Not worth 4 stars. Staff is friendly but the not so cheerfull as we have experienced in rest of Bergen. It really needs a new vibe....

The staff was friendly and the location is perfect. Our room had a stunning view of the harbour. The downside was not having a few bottles of water in the room - we had just arrived and were particularly thirsty, and then I was told to come down to the lobby again to get them myself. Secondly, the sauna was...
