Review Summary


  • Excellent location, adjacent to the historic Bryggen wharf
  • Plenty of meeting, event, and conference space
  • Contemporary, attractive design
  • Filini, a cozy but stylish bar and Italian restaurant off the lobby
  • Madame Felle, with live music and casual American fare
  • Bryggen Piano Bar (guests get free entrance before midnight)
  • Free breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi


  • Popular with groups, which can make for a lot of activity and commotion in common spaces
  • Sleek, modern design may not appeal to travelers seeking Nordic charm

Bottom Line

This attractive 263-room hotel, decked out in contemporary decor (think: white acrylic "moose head;" individual, geometric check-in kiosks) is a popular spot for meetings and conventions. Hosting big groups can lead to commotion in the lobby, but the hotel's excellent location helps compensate: The hotel is attached to the historic buildings of the Bryggen wharf area, Bergen's most popular attraction (smaller meetings can even convene inside the historic buildings, most of which have been rebuilt). There's an on-site Italian restaurant, and the hotel is attached to a live music venue-cum-restaurant that serves American fare. For an equally good location with a quieter atmosphere, consider the Clarion Collection Hotel Havnekontoret right across the driveway.

On the harbor, attached to Bryggen.

Map of Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Bergen

The Radisson Blue Royal is on the harbor, attached to Bryggen and just a few blocks from the Bergenhus Fortress. Other popular sights such as the Fish Market and the Floibanen Funicular are also within walking distance.

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.

  • 1-minute walk to Bryggen
  • 4-minute walk to Bergenhus Fortress
  • 7-minute walk to the Fish Market
  • 7-minute walk to Floibanen Funicular
  • 12-minute walk to Byparken
  • 17-minute walk or 7-minute drive to the Bergen Museum
  • 24-minute walk or 11-minute drive to the Bergen Aquarium
