Clarion Collection Hotel Havnekontoret

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel's location is great. Ask to go up to the tower and you will get great all around views of Bergen. There is some free food available most of the day. Some of the reception staff were very helpful when asked for directions. A bit on the expensive side (cost/value benefit), but Norway in general is expensive.

This hotel has a lovely lobby and comfortable dining space. The breakfast and dinner buffets, while perfectly decent, are nothing to write home about. Still, given the insanely high cost of food in Norway, taking advantage of them will save you a pretty penny. As others have said, the rooms are comfortable, if small. The hotel is also in the heart of the touristy Bryggen area; if I were to return to Bergen, I'd probably look for a hotel overlooking the harbor toward Bryggen, rather than in the old harbor area itself. Still, we were satisfied with our stay at the Havnekontoret.

Desk welcoming and helpful re restaurants. Be prepared to carry your own bags. Room had limited drawer space, which my wife was not happy with. Great breakfast buffets. PM snack available. On our last night, we ate in at the light dinner buffet and it was more than adequate. It is within easy walking distance to the Brygge and fish market. The Airport bus stops right across the street.

A wonderful location. The room was small and the decor a little strange (sort of modern-ish, with dep purples and browns), but the location could not have been better. The first room was a bit dark, had no view and had twin beds (not what we had ordered), but they were pleasant about allowing us to change rooms. We got a smaller room, but a spectacular view overlooking the harbor, which made it quite special for us. The morning and evening buffets were quite nice. We found the concierge to be a little less helpful than I would have anticipated, but I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Decent hotel. Staff was very pleasant. Standard room was very small. On our return visit, the room was warm and we could not cool it since there is no air conditioning. Appreciated the good breakfast and decent evening meal.

Tremendously enjoyed our stay at the Bergen Clarion. Arrived late, just as dinner service was ending, and front desk personnel encouraged us to go eat first, then check into our room. Food was delicious, still warm, and what we needed after a long day of touring Norway. Room was good size, and included everything one needs. Great location, for everything was within walking distance. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Everything costs more in Norway, and the[...] price coupled with a free dinner buffet made this a great bargain. Located next to several historical sites at the end of Bryggen Skagge, it is close most of what you want to see. Friendly staff went out of the way to be helpful. Minuses-you can hear the TV in the next room.
