Scandic Byparken, Bergen
Booked a “superior room”. It did not match the picture on nor the description. Complained and got upgraded to a “superior extra” room. It still did not match my expectation (based on similar priced hotels in Bergen). Run down and not very clean. The breakfast on the other hand is ...superior.

Room by the park.
The hotel was great, but the room was very very small. Two twin beds, excellent linen. Heated floor in the bathroom.
