Opus XVI

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

The Opus XVI Edvard Grieg Heritage Hotel, located in the heart of Bergen, Norway, is a grand tribute to the legacy of renowned composer Edvard Grieg. The brainchild of Alexander Grieg, a descendant of Edvard Grieg’s older brother, this hotel occupies an old 19th-century bank building, maintaining its historical charm and grand classical facade. Coupled with an extensive multimillion-dollar renovation carried out by a top-tier Oslo-based architectural firm, it presents a harmonious blend of history and modernity, radiating elegance and comfort.

What are the rooms like?

Providing a refuge of tranquillity, each of the Opus XVI’s 65 rooms is a unique blend of modern luxury and traditional charm. Available in six diverse categories from cosy classic petite rooms to lavish signature suites, guests are wrapped in warm chocolate brown tones with an impressive attention to detail. Art panels adorn the walls, ambient lighting creates a sophisticated atmosphere and fully-stocked minibars add to the luxury. Bathrooms, in true European style, exceed conventional standards with their elegant tiles and modern fixtures.
