No issues with the hotels location, staff or common areas. Just my room was "worn out" the wallpaper was falling off, scratches everywhere and TV broken. Bathroom was fine, but the Rooms need a serious renovation. I was in 307. Location is Right next to fish market which is great.

We had heard the rooms were dirty, and staff unhelpful. Our experience was much different. We changed (for a fee) to a great front facing room, and found the young woman at the front desk more than helpful!

Scandic Strand is really all about the location: Right next to the Fish Market, with a splendid view of the old hanseatic houses across the water. Just about everything you want to see in Bergen is a stone´s throw away. The hotel itself is somewhat old, and will need to be renovated soon to keep up, and I had some... More

Room needs updating and very cramped. No drawer space only a little hanging rail in wardrobe, so majority of clothes were left in case. Ideally located for fjord cruises and the funicular railway. When at top lovely view over Bergen. Huge shopping centre just round the corner and bus stop for airport also.

After our Hurtigruten journey we spent 3 days at this hotel, pre-booked 1 year ago! The room we had been offered was dirty, small with view to the backyard, where the neighbors and restaurants get ride of their waste at night. So it was noisy and caused a disgusting smell as well!

The location is the one and only reason you would choose this hotel. The rooms are old and dirty, and in extremely bad condition. We got a room with several holes in the wall, mold in the bathroom, the ventilation system was not cleaned and the window was impossible to close. This room should never have been open to paying...

As easy as 123 Direct from airport with the bus, and was dropped just outside the hotel. Perfect spot, friendly check in staff, comfortable and clean room, and the most amazing breakfast buffet ever, great presentation, should return one day just for that.

Not a grand hotel on the inside, but what a Perfect location right on the harbor! Great for taking walks in either direction (and I would recommend walking up the hills behind the hotel to see the homes and shopping streets of this neat-as-a-pin European city, not just to the old Bryggen side of the harbor).
