Best hotels in Bergen

Where to stay in Bergen, from the best budget choice to the perfect accommodation when you want to treat yourself.

As a writer and publisher exploring Norway, I'm constantly staying in hotels all around the country. The quality varies wildly, so it's worth spending some time to check the facilities you want and read the reviews of other travellers.

Best for Tradition: Grand Terminus Hotel

Located right outside the main railway station, the Grand Terminus is one of Bergen's most famous and historic hotels. Each of the 131 classical rooms comes with satellite TVs, free Wi-Fi and a minibar.

Downstairs, the historic Whiskey Bar offers a range of food, drinks and snacks as well as the obvious. Free bicycle rental is available from the 24-hour reception. Read our full hotel review or go ahead and check rates and availability on Booking.com

Best for Location: First Hotel Marin

The hotel is situated just behind Bryggen and just a few minutes walk from many of the other tourist attractions such as the fish market, Fløibanen fenicular railway, and the old fortress.

The refurbished rooms are comfortable, many with seating areas, and there's a handy chart to show the quietest times in the breakfast room.

Best for Value: Thon Hotel Brygge

There are some cheaper hotels in Bergen, but none with a location as good as the Thon Hotel Brygge. As the name suggests, this budget hotel is located in Bryggen, Bergen's famous wharf district.

Free wifi, a flat-screen TV, a writing desk and a private bathroom are standard in all rooms. A nearby gym is available free of charge for guests. Check rates and availability on Booking.com
