    The staff was nice and they did a great job clearing and refreshing breakfast with a huge crowd. Even the manager was out there helping. The bathroom was very spacious. The location is really close to the train, buses, and easy walking to touristy sites.

    Our room was really, really small and reeked of smoke even though we requested a non smoking room. It also looked like they had done some renovations but stopped halfway through (unfinished wall sockets, chipped paint). The TV was older than me! We asked to change, but they were fully booked apparently. Not at all up to par with other Rica Hotels I've stayed in, but functional for a trip where you don't plan on staying in your room much.

    Good hotel with very helpfull staff. Advices given were very helpfull and very appreciated

    A good and typical 4-star hotel in a nice building in the heart of the city. Comfortable beds.

    Before arriving at this hotel we stayed a few nights in the Rica Park Hotel in Stavanger, which is of the same chain. The hotels should be of the same luxury- and facility-level. However after having stayed at the hotel in Stavanger (which was absolutely fabulous), this hotel in Bergen was somewhat disappointing: the room was way smaller, comfort was a bit worse and noises from the street were not dimmed enough, while the price was higher.

    We stayed at Rica Bergen for 3 nights. First and foremost the breakfast is sensational, excellent variety, great fresh food and fruit and cereal and also hot food, cheese board, juices, fresh bread and with Norway prices its great to fill up on brekky and not have to worry about having a large lunch. The hotel is in a perfect location in between the city centre and train station, 5 minutes walk to both. Rooms ok, decent size, clean and new bathroom and furniture, good tv. On our last day in Bergen it was pouring with rain and it was great to have a 12pm check out.

    Not much to complain about, you cant say price because yes it is expensive but its Norway.we had two different rooms as we stayed 2 nights in bergen and did an overnight stay in flam then our last night in bergen again so had 2 different rooms, they were similar, one was larger with a good view of the lake but the bathroom was more like a wetroom, no bottom to the shower though heated flooring meant that the water wasnt too much of an issue.

    we enjoyed our stay very much ' the location is great, a very good breakfest, nice room with coffe and tee in the room. perfect!

    the parking problem , we wiasted a lot of time to find it and it cost 180 kr per day

    Fantastic location in centre of town, short walk to Flybussen airport coach and near some decent and not too expensive (which Norway is very) expensive restaurants. Wi-fi in room and included.

    Room was single standard and very small for the price. Can be rather noisy as near a main street, depending on which side of hotel your room is.

    Central in city

    1. Noisy. I had room on first floor and the traffic noise was very loud. Needed window open since hot and no air-conditioning. Made sleep difficult. 2. Staff were a bit off hand and not as helpful as they could have been

  • Older travelers

    Accommodation was good with excellent breakfasts. Located 500m from the central railway station with a flat walk.

    Needs more hygienic method at breakfast smorgasbord so people don't handle food and transmit disease.

  • Group of friends

    The breakfast was really good. The room was not so small as expected reading other comments. For me was ok. It was a double and we was in 2.

  • Single
    7.8

    The hotel offered a good price for its location.

    Although I had no issue with the small size of the room I had, it did not have much ventilation with the window open, making it stuffy. The staff did not have a portable fan available when I asked.

  • Older travelers

    They accommodated us in a difficult situation, made us feel welcome. Provided excellent facilities and superb breakfasts. It was fun to explore Bergen from Rica. Will rcommend it to friends

    A bit pricey. Internet worked once in while.

    Incredible superb breakfast, good location, acceptable price roomsize concidered

    The rooms are a little small.

    Fantastic breakfast, a really great selection.

  • Couple
    5.4

    Modern rooms, good location.

    Just one elevator to the top floor, and it stopped/went out of service several times during our weekend stay. The staff were not very attentive about it, causing us to have to walk the stairs with our luggage. The breakfast buffet was nice, but the dining room was too small to accomodate all the guests, and the staff were snappy and not very nice. Very few spoke and understood Norwegian.

  • Group of friends

    Fantastic service so helpful and friendly. Great selection at breakfast. Central location and near airport bus stop.
