The 10 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.

The hotel occupies three adjacent buildings, including the historic 1862 stock exchange building, Børshuset.

The real star of the show is Frescohallen, a spectacular restaurant housed in the historic stock exchange hall, featuring high ceilings adorned with murals by Axel Revold. Guests can enjoy an international menu and local seafood in this architectural marvel.
