Fantastic hotel in perfect location
Posted Sep 11, 2016
I stayed for 1 night and was very impressed with this hotel. It's located right in the Bryggen tourist area, at the end of the wooden houses and on the waterfront. It is full of character - check out the little snug area at the bottom of the stairs, and take the stairs right up to the tower. Check-in was easy and the staff very friendly. I had a room (601) on the top floor overlooking the water, which was a reasonable size and contained good-quality versions of everything I would expect. The coffee machine actually produced good coffee, which is often not the case in hotel rooms! Large flatscreen TV had a good range of channels, including a number of English/US options. Good shower, though took a while to get hot (probably due to being on the top). Free wifi throughout the hotel too.
I hadn't realised when I booked that the price includes an evening meal as well, so that was a great bonus! It is a 'light dinner' buffet, with soup, salad and a main course option. Very good and tasty, and the dining area is pleasant. You could also get free afternoon coffee and waffles, but I didn't try these. Breakfast was also good with a range of options.
Another bonus with this hotel is that the airport coach (Flybussen) stops practically outside, so it was very easy and stress-free to continue my journey. Overall, I would definitely stay here again - couldn't really ask for more.
