Coming with small kits, we have immediately received an upgrade to a superior room - bigger and more spacious; excellent breakfast with lots of choice of health food; superbe location in downtown Bergen - everything can be reached by foot bar/restaurant as well as room service close food/kitchen at 10PM.
The room was very clean and the location could not have been better. Able to see the city of Bergen by foot from this hotel. A bit warm at night in the room as air conditioner was not all that effective
Seems OK to me - I did have little time to sample anything special coming in late and leaving early, so here are some points: A. Ok room B. Quiet - slept well. C- Nice breakfast D.Good parking. E- Nice staff
The best choice of dished on breakfast. It was not so pleasant to find out that there's no booking for all 3 rooms and after that we have opportunity to estimate the "smoking rooms" in spite of no smoking had been reserved yet. Never try to stay in "smoking rooms".
The location is great. The staff in general was very nice 1)the swimming pool doen't look veryappealing. 2) the hotel looks very classy on the website but not very much in reality 3) bread crumbs on the dark carpet in the breakfast launge makes the place look very dirty
Staff was very helpful, friendly and pleasant. Breakfast is very good. The location of the hotel near the harbour and the (old) centre is all within walking distance, thus very good for us with a young child. Public transport and restaurants are also close to the hotel. This hotel would benefit from an extensive refurbishment. Bathroom was quite small. In general, this hotel is definitely suitable for a few days (city trip).
Julie. There was one fantastic clerk who, being so terrific, made up for a lot of hotel mistakes. She called around town to help me book a New Year's Eve celebration, and helped me arrange to have mail delivered. She was among the best hotel representatives I've ever encountered. The hotel messed up the reservation. They had me listed as one night instead of two and so did not make up my room. They gave me a bit of a run-around canceling my room key also and overcharged me. When I called they corrected the charge. It is still a great hotel... largely because of Julie, but on the whole the staff was quite personable and caring.
We chose this hotel based on its proximity to the train station. It is a large facility with 20+ floors and good views over the city. Very disappointed we were not able to have dinner in the top of the facility because it's closed on Sunday. The entrance to the hotel was uninviting - dirty, stained concrete, looks across at another large building, very little greenery or flowers in a country that usually has spectacular displays. The only dining facility open during our stay was the bar - open to the lobby. It carpet was soiled and stained. The huge breakfast buffet included many items and for the entire time we were there it was swarming with people. Tables were not cleared for 20-30 minutes, it was difficult to find a staff person to bring coffee. Most of the food looked mediocre or tired. Really. Expected more from Radisson. My husband insists we go back to Hiltons.
Everything, excellent breakfast.
The new restaurant is fantastic. Traditional Norwegian dishes with a modern twist. Clean, modern comfortable room. Happy to have wooden floor with no carpeting. Very attentive staff and excellent service. Very welcoming atmosphere! It was surprising how many people who worked there did not speak Norwegian.
comfotable dirty under the beds:
Great location and nice and warm. Great choice at breakfast. Staff friendly and helpful Looks a bit dated now and need a refurb as I stayed her in 2001 and it was still looking smart then
Perfekt beliggenhed og god service
Det var ok, men følte jeg var stoppet i en æske hvor gardinet ikke skulle trækkes fra, og et lofts arbejde der ikke var gjort færdig, hul i loftet. Forklar kunden værelsets størrelse, og luk hullerne i loftet.
Udsigten fra vinduet på et loftsværelse I information om hotellet er oplyst at al brug af internet er gratis. Det viste sig kun at være, hvis man selv medbragte en laptop
Meget venlig og serviceminted personale. Der var MEGET støvet, der stod en gammel juledekoration på gangen som dørstopper (brandfarlig!!)! og vinduerne var MEGET beskidte, også indvendig!! man var ikke gode til, at fylde op ved morgenmaden og heller ikke m.h.t. kaffe og te på værelset!
Super beliggenhed og fin service. Stedets ene restaurant 'Mezzo' serverer fremragende mad og kan anbefales. Et stille hotel til trods for menneskemylderet ganske tæt på. Et lækkert værelse, renoveret med omtanke, respekt for stedets historie og gedigne materialer. Dejligt at kunne lave en kop kaffe/the på værelset.
Great view of Bryggen if you get a room with a view. Great location as well. Rates are a bit high considering this is not a luxury hotel.
The location of the hotel was excellent, just in front of the Brygge with all this wonderful wooden houses. Our room had a lovely sightseeing of the harbour from the bed. We surely will be back to that hotel.
The complimentary breakfast buffet was quite good -- lots of options, large amounts of food. Staff generally not helpful -- only some of the staff was able to provide information about tourist activities. Not readily responsive to resolving issues with the room. Rooms are very clean, but somewhat old. The beds were old and not very comfortable.
I was upgraded to a sea view room on arrival
Room overlooked harbor and Bryggen area and was on 6th floor. Room was great.
Made reservation through third party. Upon arrival the front desk agent told me the reservation was not showing so he made me a new reservation. Not only did he charge me more for the new reservation but I was also charged by the third party. Dispute has received no response yet.
Harbor view. Facility is a little old but it is not big deal.
Location There was
Hotel is neat and tidy and in a good location
The bed was not conformable as it was a provisional double bed.Old furniture. There were not enough towels
Location is excellent, and we enjoyed a spacious corner room. Dining room views are superb, and staff very friendly and helpful. Bed was actually a fold down Murphy bed from wall, not as comfortable as it should have been for the beautiful room, and it was awkwardly made up with overlapping sheets.
The harbour view; proximity to centre. The food was very good, and the place was very clean and smart. Room was small with very little storage and no room to put up the suitcase stand provided! Also the restaurant service was chaotic and haphazard - at breakfast they were very slow to refill the things that had run out. But food was good.
God beliggenhed, god morgenmad og venligt, effektivt personale Nej
God morgenmad -selve maden og udvalget Morgenmaden burde arrangeres bedre, så alle gæster kan komme til med et minimun af ventetid. F.eks mere midt i lokalet så personalet også kan komme ind og ud af dørene til køkkenet
God beliggenhed. Alt er dyrt i Norge, herunder prisen på dette budgethotel.
sengene var ret smalle
The location of the hotel Nothing
Breakfast; proximity to the city center The hotel is old and ill maintained; the staff tends to provide wrong information; bad smell often spreads in the corridors
Friendly staff, and the hotel is very well situated...very good services too... no, everything was fine...
The breakfast was excellent. Yes, there was no soap in the room. Had to go to the reception which first had to verify before bringing the soap.
Location. Cleanliness of room, lack of attention to request i.e. I requested an elevated room, what I actually got was a room on the first floor with a view of the ugly roof. Staff were not very friendly or helpful.
The breakfast was extremely good! We were sleeping on the second floor. Unfortunatly there is a club playing on the lower floor behind the main reception. It was quite difficult to sleep in the evening due to the noise.
The pillows I would like some more variation for breakfast
The room was not made up on one day even after the desk had been informed. There was an attempt to overcharge me although this was rectified once I produced some documentation.
Friendly staff, big rooms, big and comfortable beds, exellent location, good breakfast
Bed is very confortable over the average and people are very helpful and polite Rooms have quite old furniture not in line with price
Savnede at kunne åbne vinduet på værelset. Bløde madrasser og dårlige hovedpuder. Morgenmadsrestauranten kunne trænge til en opfriskning og ekstra personale i "myldretiden".
elevatoren En dobbeltseng i et alt for lille rum til det. Man kunne ikke se himlen fra rummet. Det føltes meget indelukket. Ingen shampooe den var tom.Lommetørklædeboksen var tom. Toiletpapirholderen var itu. Man kunne ikke lave en kop kaffe på rummet. Køleskabet var tomt. Der var meget uklare billeder på TV. Flot rekalme for hotellet uden at kunne leve op til det. Prisen for høj til den kvalitet jeg blev budt.
Personalet var meget imødekommen, da vi ønskede et værelse, hvor man kunne åbne vinduerne, fordi på det væerelse vi først fik, var alle vinduerne lukket og man føler en meget indelukket atmosfære. I skulle igen indføre nogle enkelte værelser med tilladt rygning.
Dejligt hotel. Styr på sagerne. Ro og fred. Herlig morgenmad.
Fint hotel med central beliggenhed, men internet og TV virkede ikke selv om begge dele var gratis. God morgenmad. Internet og TV virkede ikke selv om begge dele var gratis. Måske derfor ?
This hotel is great. The Strand hotels in Scandanavia are good ones. This location is perfect as it is right on the square in close proximity to harbor and walking distance to train station. Service excellent. We would stay again.
Proximity to the harbor, city, and airport bus stop. Price was a little high.
