Bergen: four hotels in the spotlight

Bergen, Norway's second largest city after Oslo is investing in its hotel infrastructure, with the Quality Hotel Edvard Grieg opening this year and three further ones in the pipeline.

Quality Hotel Edvard Grieg: The 373-room hotel, operated by Nordic Choice Hotels, is located a five-minute drive away from the city's airport and 15 minutes from the city centre. It completed an extensive renovation and expansion programme in May this year, to include new bedrooms and conference space, as well as new dining facilities. For events, the hotel can cater for up to 1,080 theatre-style or 700 for banquets. 

Comfort Hotel Bergen Airport: Scheduled for completion by 2017, Comfort Hotel Bergen Airport will be located close to the Clarion Hotel Bergen Airport, which opened in 2007; the new terminal at Bergen Airport, which is also set to open in 2017 and the future business park planned for the area. It will in­clude 300 rooms over three floors as well as a con­fer­ence cen­tre, restau­rant and lobby bar. 

Scandic Flesland Airport: Set to be the largest congress hotel in Bergen when it opens, Scandic Flesland Airport is targeting a launch in early spring 2017 and will be a short walk from the terminal at Bergen airport and a 16-minute drive from Bergen city centre. The hotel will have 306 rooms and offer 25 meeting spaces - the two largest will offer a total of 1,045sqm and 500sqm respectively.

Zander K: Styled as Bergen's 'first design hotel', Zander K is expected to open in March 2017 and will offer 250 rooms spread across six floors, conference and meeting space and a wine bar and restaurant with a focus on organic and local food.
