The 5 best boutique and luxury hotels in Bergen

Bergen’s most stylish and personal hotel stays

Ask a dozen people about their favourite hotel, and you’ll likely get a dozen different responses. A favourite hotel is as much of a personal preference as your favourite movie, book or singer. But in our opinion, the best hotels have a few things in common: they feel intimate and personal (regardless of size or number of rooms), they have a distinctive vibe, the staff offers superb service and the architecture and interior design are unique and full of character. We love them even more when they are deeply ingrained in the local neighbourhood and culture. Here’s our list of five carefully crafted Bergen boutique and luxury hotels that tell a strong story.

Opus XVI

Opus XVI, The Edvard Grieg Heritage Hotel in Bergen, welcomes guests to a classical hotel experience with a modern twist that offers insight into the life of the famous composer. The hotel is located in a historical building from 1876, originally built as a bank, in the heart of Bergen. The hotel features a restaurant, a bar, an exhibition of art by local artists, a gym, and meeting and banquet facilities that are perfect for weddings and private celebrations. In addition, the hotel has an exhibition about Edvard Grieg and the composition of his most famous A minor concert, Opus 16. The hotel is run by the couple Britt Marie Grieg and Alexander Grieg – Alexander Grieg is the great-great-nephew of Edvard Grieg’s brother, and the couple’s dream was to create a cultural hotel for the city’s inhabitants and to offer a modern and luxurious hotel experience.
