  • Single

    Was a little nervous about gaining access, as I was arriving after the reception closed when no staff are on site, but the instructions sent were clear and everything worked perfectly. My room was good, with a small fridge, and the hotel is close to the Hurtigrute terminal from which I was travelling next day. I got off at the 2nd stop of the airport bus, Festplassen (ignore maps which place this square somewhere different), and it was just a few minutes walk to the hotel. WiFi info in the lift, coffee machine on 2nd floor. The guy at reception next morning when I checked out was really friendly and the price is excellent value in Bergen.

  • Family with children

    great location, good breakfast in the scandinc hotel near the basic hotel bregen, nice stuff.

    no parking near the hotel, it may be the problem if you travel by car with little child.

  • Couple

    Room style and position.

    One of the receptionist was very unkind. No info at all when we arrived in town.

  • Couple

    Great value for money, very modern, not long had a refurb. All was very convenient.

  • Group of friends

    Rooms large, friendly staff, location, secure bag storage, reasonable rates for Norway.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is about 15-minute walk from railway station and 5-minute walk from city malls. As the hotel is small, it is a little difficult to be found. Besides, there is no breakfast provided, the price is a little high.

  • Older travelers

    Room rate. Nice room. Reason for "fair" regarding staff: We only saw a staff member upopn check-out - therefore we have no real opinion. Reason for "fair" regarding value for money: The only reason this is not "poor" is the combination of room rate and room standard, which was quite good, but the disturbing noise (which was not communicated in the infoirmation we found) makesd it "poor value for money", which adds up to an "average" of fair value for money.

    Noise directly from people in street outside pubs right outside room, even if this was a Thursday night (and not Friday or Saturday). Loud pub music with disturbing bass. Was dead tired but wasn't able to sleep until last pub guests had left around 03:30 A.M. Difficult parking possibilities, combined with incorrect information about parking (Grieg Concert House parking garage wasn't open at midnight).

  • Single

    Clean, modern facilities, in a good location (But not easy to find)

    There is more than one hotel in Bergen called the Basic Hotel and the one I am reviewing is not the most popular one. Please be sure to get precise directions from the train station before staying or you may be walking around for multiple hours trying to find it. Small miscommunication about check-in times, but was taken care of and I was able to check-in past 7:00PM

  • Older travelers

    This was a budget hotel located in a great part of Bergen. We were fortunate to arrive while ther was someone on duty because this is as its name suggests...basic. No change of linen or towels but thjat was OK. More bathroom racks or hooks would have been helpful. we were very happy here and the management readily moved us when noise from nearby hotel/bar/club got too problem at all, very quickly and kindly done. Perhaps they are not used to over sixties staying there. There was no noise within the hotel. If you are prepared to have room that is adequate but not spacious, clean and neat with a good but small bathroom then thi sis fine in an expensive city. We were close to shops, harbour, museums, restaurants, bars, walks and it suited us well. No breakfast but there are vouchers from the hiotel giving discounts for some cafes/restaurants. Also, just up the hill was the Scandic Hotel wheer we had great breakfast for 135NOK each and from which we got the Airport bus for 100NOK each.

    The noise from nearby hotel, but that was fixed. We were on the fifth floor, so the sloping roof was abit of a nuisance. The walk up from the lift at fourth floor was not a real problem for us but might worry some people.

  • Couple

    Good location.

    We stayed 2 nights and the room has not been cleaned during our stay. The room is extremely small, there is not even space for a wardrobe. The hotel does not offer any additional services, not even breakfast.

  • Couple

    The design of the room and furnishing are excellent. The hotel focuses on a very good price and good design, by not having extras such as 24 hour reception or bar/breakfast. There is a fridge and tea and coffee facilities. There are also ground coffee machines on every other floor to purchase from. The rooms are spacious and feel luxurious. Great location as well. Very pleased with the hotel.

  • Older travelers

    big room. nice bed

    Noisy from the bar next door, the double bed had 2 single sheets on it so got tangled up in the edge

  • Couple

    Good location, helpful staff and clean room, what else we need?I love it!

  • Single

    Friendliness and kindness of the staff. The hotel is very little but very charm and cool. Very near the center.

    There is no parking close to the hotel. The nearest one is around 10 minutes walking.

  • Group of friends

    The pleasant and helpful people at the desk.

    We would have liked to have had a telephone in the room.
