The city of Bergen is the usual starting point for a holiday in the western fjord
area and an overnight stay here is well worthwhile, and often necessary because of
flight or ferry dates and times. We offer a small selection of hotels in Bergen to
suit different requirements.
Strand Hotel has probably the best location in Bergen, being situated overlooking
the harbour and close to the Tourist Information office, airport bus stop, express
boat terminal, and the main shopping area.
Park Hotel is in the more peaceful university area of Bergen about 15 minutes walk
from the harbour. Lovely old hotel with antique furniture. Street parking outside.
Steens Hotel usually offers the lowest price for a hotel in central Bergen, and is
just round the corner from the Park Hotel.
The Choice group of hotels offer very good value for money and are mostly located
in the larger towns and cities in Norway. The decor is generally modern but distinctively
Norwegian. Standards are consistently good and prices reasonable. We can offer preferential
rates at all these hotels. You can see details and locations at www.choice.no. .
The Rica group of hotels are also mainly in the larger towns and cities and are especially
well represented in the north of Norway. Details are at www.rica.no.
This group of hotels offers a choice of ‘Budget’, ‘City’ and ‘Conference’ hotels
though all of them offer high standards at very reasonable rates. Most are located
in the bigger towns and cities, though there are a few in holiday areas including
ski resorts. Details can be found at www.thonhotels.no .
With online hotel reservation systems often giving the best rates and special offers
on city hotels we are pleased to be able to offer hotels available through "Hotel
Connect". You can check availability and prices yourself on the Hotel Connect web
site www.hotelconnect.co.uk, and we will include these in our planned tours where
relevant. We can also book using Hotel Connect in other Scandinavian countries and
at UK airports on request.
The Oslo Package
The capital city of Oslo is well worth visiting for a few days. The "Oslo Package"
offers very good rates in a wide range of hotels and an Oslo Pass for all guests
is included in the price. This gives you free public transport in the city and free
or discounted access to nearly all the main tourist attractions. Children under 16
stay free of charge in a family room. You can see information about the city and
Oslo Package hotels at www.visitoslo.com . We can advise you about which hotel will
best meet your requirements and book at the same price shown on the web site.
