The actual entrance to the hotel can be found one street back from the harbour, welcoming guests via a red carpet into the elegant lobby and lounge area. Housing 152 bedrooms over six floors, the hotel is ideal for any length of stay and guests are always made to feel welcome and looked after by the friendly and courteous staff.

You could not wish for a more central location when staying at the First Hotel Marin Bergen. In addition to having pride of place on the harbour front, there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants in the immediate area. Some of Bergen’s best museums are close by, including the Maritime Museum, Bryggens Museum and the Hanseatic Museum, which is virtually next door to the hotel. Two historical churches are within easy walking distance; St Mary’s Church, which is the oldest remaining building in Bergen, and the 12th century Korskirken. For an impressive backdrop, the hotel is overlooked by the towering Mount Fløyen, the summit of which can be accessed via the funicular railway.
Breakfast and dinner can be taken at the hotel’s rustic yet chic Beyer’en Restaurant, which serves classic Scandinavian dishes with a hint of continental influences harking back to the times when Bryggen Harbour was used as a trading port for spices and other ingredients. The First Hotel Marin Bergen also has a friendly bar, offering a selection of fine wines, spirits, cocktails and the locally brewed beer, Hansa, which is well worth a try. For those seeking relaxation after a day of sightseeing, the sauna and steam room offer the perfect place to unwind.
