                    The location is excellent. Parking is available

                    The level of general cleanliness and maintenance of facilities is not suited to a hotel which charges this much.

                    The view of the room.

                    The room service was delayed and came only 3 hours after we ordered. However, the meal was just reheated.....

                    First room was horribly small. Replacement was quite large, big view of the lake, good tub.

                    First room very tiny

                    In the gym there was someone sleeping almost every day ( as they told us there were no roons available and had to put someone there to sleep ) I asked for a smoking room and gave me a non smoking room without informing us that the room was a non smoking room. I had to pay a fine for smoking 2 cigarettes in the room and without a warning. Just something printed that they placed on the table and was to late to see it. Furniture were old and beds extremely unfomfortable. We all had back pain after 2 days. At breakfast in 2 occasions eggs run out at 9.30 and did not refill. In general throught the staff was ok the hotel does not worth the price at all. I left 4 night before schedule

                    Hotel Marin was situated in a perfect location. The rooms were large and clean. Breakfast was nice with many selections.

                    Big rooms, excellent location

                    The hotel staff could be more professional - this relates both to the room service/room cleaning as well as the reception. For the price charged per night, a first class service should be offered.

                    We had harbour view room, so was excellent location. Very good breakfast

                    Good location near waterfront/city center. Large breakfast buffet (saturday morning). Small but decent gym, sauna, and steam in basement.

                    A few things in the bathroom and gym need maintenance, but staff seemed willing to listen and note it.

                    Breakfast was excellent with plenty of variety

                    Room was interior and although it had a window, it looked out onto the roof and other rooms.

                    Right in the middle of the city centre, but still quiet environment.

                    Lack of professionalism; key card didn't work several times, half a day no internet facility; confirmed late check-out not respected; 4 times people from staff entered my room, of which 2 times without knocking on the door.

                    Leaving, we left 2 days earlier than planned

                    From the start everything was inefficient. We were told there was no booking for us, it was their computer system or lack thereof, in first name order rather than surname. We were designated a room already occupied. Breakfast was extremely poor, orange juice watered, when there was any, if food ran out even long before breakfast times finished then it was not replenished, coffee/tea machines not working at times.Computer in foyer for guests not in working order.Staff smoking outside on pavement during working hours. Total lack of any management figure.Lack of housekeeping supervision, carpets not vacummed day of our arrival. The list of complaints is endless.

                    The hotel was conveniently located just one block from the wharf. There are numerous restaurants and of course the famous fish market right there. It is walking distance to the tram, the train station and other local sites. The room was very spacious and nicely appointed. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and had the usual selection.

                    Restaurant was good with relatively Ok prices compared to other places in Bergen.

                    The hotel obviously needs to be refurbished. Wooden floor, furniture, walls, etc...are old, damaged, worn-out. Maintainace is not the first priority, it seems, 2 lamps were out of order and needed new bulbs. Reception staff was rather unprofessional, few answers to simple questions. A trainee (visible by his batch) was explaining to others (non trainees) what to do and sometimes he could not.
