The First Hotel Marin in Bergen is in a very nice location, has good rooms, and an incredible breakfast. We found the hotel to be a great value. Our room overlooked the water, which was excellent, however there is a lot of partying on the Bryggen on Friday night and the noise kept us awake. Not the hotel's fault, but...

Excellent location to get to to all the attractions in Bergen, and for eating and drinking out, fantastic breakfast set us up for the day. Allergy labelling as really helpful.

The hotel was a block from the city center, and perfect access for watching the syttende mai (May 17, Norwegian Independence Day) parade and nearby fish market/restaurants. The hotel was older, established, and functioned well despite a strike (country-wide) of housekeeping workers. The breakfast buffet was amazing, fresh, varied, and plentiful. The only down side was the bathroom tub/shower that...

The decor is retro, the breakfast spread was alright, the gym missed essential weights. Yes there is some noise from the outside, in the daytime the construction noise just above my room made me flee the building. The room was not cleaned because of the hotel strike. The room (just under the roof) was not too warm although some Americans...

Ask for a harbour view room, as it rains quite offen in this town. Then if the weather is bad you have something to look at. Excellent check in service, pleasant staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds. Quaint little town to discover.

Our stay here was brief but very enjoyable. Helpful staff to our group of 8. We all had roomy rooms. Easy walking to most spots. Breakfast was ok. Good spot to stay before our trip on the Hurtegruten ship up the coast. Heated floor in bathrooms. Bar fridge missing though!

My room was small, but with a number of wooden attributes that gave it an old time feel. Free WI Fi, excellent, huge breakfasts, close to many restaurants and the wharf.

Reception staff were friendly and very helpful. We arrived during a nationwide hotel and restaurant workers strike. The reception staff explained that we would not receive any daily room service and if we required fresh towels to come to reception for them. It must have been a challenging environment to work in and not great for guests on longer stays...
