Bergen has seven fjords on one side and seven hills on the other, creating a dramatically beautiful backdrop to this postcard perfect port city with its World Heritage Listed central district, Bryggen. As well as the food markets and plenty of fantastic bars, restaurants and cafes, many of the best places to stay in Bergen are in Bryggen.
Bergen is also known for its great cultural scene - especially for its music - and there are a number of excellent galleries and museums here, including KODE 3, home to the Rasmus Meyer collection of Edvard Munch’s work.
But if you’re here to experience the peace and tranquility of Norway’s fjords - and Bergen is considered the ‘Gateway to the Fjords’, then you’ll find some of the best places to stay in Bergen are closer to the coast and outside the centre of town. Hike, sail, cruise, kayak, however you see this landscape you’ll be astounded by the scale of its beauty.
Located in the Bryggen district of Bergen, a World Heritage Site, the hotel has views of the historic port. A 1920s stone building, the fashionable interiors are stylish and welcoming. Complementary evening buffet features traditional Nordic cuisine. Plus there's a relaxing sauna and gym area.
