Zander K Hotel

What’s the hotel in a nutshell?

Zander K Hotel, a standout member of the De Bergenske hotel family, seamlessly blends history and modernity in Bergen’s city centre. Swedish architects Claesson Koivisto Rune transformed a 1930s parking garage and a 1920s bike shop into a striking, contemporary 249-room hotel. Its deep blue modern addition echoes Bergen’s skyline, creating a visually distinct triptych that fits perfectly into the local architectural language. Opened in 2017, Zander K is named after Alexander Kaae, an 18th-century Bergen merchant known for his philanthropy. The hotel prides itself on its forward-thinking approach and affordable luxury, and we feel it is the perfect choice for the modern-minded traveller.

What are the rooms like?

The rooms at Zander K Hotel are a masterclass in minimalist design and comfort. Designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune, the interiors feature a soothing palette of blues, whites and greys, complemented by locally sourced wood and stone. Each room includes custom-made furniture, such as mirror-finished stainless steel desks with rounded edges and the distinctive ’Zander’ two-tone bedside tables. The playful ’Summer Rain’ curtains, designed to evoke Bergen’s famous weather, add a whimsical touch. Arne Jacobsen lighting and Thonet seating further enhance the aesthetic, creating a space that is both functional and stylish.

Guests can enjoy the all-day restaurant Matbar, which features a forest-like ambiance with its scattered-leaf-pattern tiled floor and an array of natural materials. The hotel also boasts a gym, conference rooms and free WiFi. The lobby, with its blend of solid wood, exposed concrete and polished marble, is a theatre of material tactility. For a cosy evening, guests can relax in the lounge with a glass of red wine, appreciating the unique rain-themed artworks by Jesper Waldersten.
