Bergen, Norway

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Large swimming pool and Jacuzzi
  • Central location within walking distance of tourist sights
  • Business Class Rooms come with free movies, Nespresso machines, bathrobes, and slippers
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Main restaurant serves a breakfast buffet (free), buffet lunch, and a la carte dinner
  • Extensive meeting facilities
  • A fine dining restaurant, a stylish bar, and a nightclub

Cons

  • Some rooms show wear and tear
  • Large hotel with generic decor and corporate feel
  • Some complaints of noise from on-site nightclub

Bottom Line

This 347-room business chain hotel has extensive conference facilities and, most notably, a large pool -- a feature which no other Bergen hotel can offer. But its size makes for long check-in lines and an impersonal feel. Rooms have generic decor and some are showing wear and tear; in short, they aren't nearly as nice as those at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel on the other side of the harbor. But Business Class Rooms do come extras such as free movies, Nespresso machines, bathrobes, and slippers.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Central location near Byparken

The Radisson Blu Hotel Norge has a very central Bergen location near Byparken and multiple bus stops. Popular tourist sights such as the Bryggen Hanseatic buildings and Floibanen Funicular are within walking distance, though they're a bit farther away from the Radisson Blu Hotel Norge than from hotels located on the other side of the harbor.

Bergen is one of Norway's most charming and appealing cities, with several well-preserved historic areas, museums, a wide shopping plaza, and the large, manicured Byparken with a pond, gardens, and a gazebo. Tourists flock to Bryggen, a former Hanseatic merchant area with colorful centuries-old wooden buildings (and some newer reconstructions). The Fish Market on the harbor is another popular spot, as is the Floibanen Funicular, which shuttles visitors to the top of a mountain for panoramic views of the city and harbors.

  • 2-minute walk to Byparken
  • 5-minute walk to the Fish Market
  • 6-minute walk to the Bergen Museum
  • 9-minute walk to Bryggen Hanseatic buildings
  • 9-minute walk to the Floibanen Funicular
  • 15-minute walk to Bergenhus Fortress
  • 19-minute walk or 10-minute drive to the Bergen Aquarium

 Bottom Line
