Scandic Flesland

A short walk from the airport terminal, this is one of the newest hotels near Bergen Airport. With modern rooms and an excellent restaurant, Scandic hotels are famous for their superb breakfasts.

November 2022 rates from 1,600 NOK
December 2022 rates from 1,400 NOK
January 2023 rates from 1,600 NOK

The opening of the new airport terminal at Bergen Airport lead to a number of new hotels opening nearby, with the Scandic Flesland being the most recent hotel to open in 2017. The hotel is practically brand new, especially when you consider that they were closed/minimally operating for nearly two years during the pandemic.Upon exiting the airport, turn right and follow the signage to the hotel it's around a 7-8 minute walk (I did it in 5 minutes, but only had a backpack and a small suitcase on my most recent stay), and once you arrive at the hotel you'll be greeted by a modern reception area with friendly staff who will efficiently check you in.The rooms at the hotel are very modern. I find them to be spacious, and offer everything you need for a short stay including a fridge, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, a kettle with tea/coffee, and plenty of fluffy towels.The beds are comfortable, and the modern TVs allow you to share your phone for things like YouTube and Netflix. The bathrooms are also very clean and modern, and all of the rooms have touch sensitive controls to set lighting levels throughout the bedroom, as well as do not disturb so that the housekeepers are aware of your preferences.The hotel also has two restaurants, one for breakfast and conference lunches, and another for dinner. If you are dining at the hotel, the Popolo Osteria & Bar, named after the famous Piazza del Popolo in the centre of Rome, serves an Italian menu using the freshest of ingredients. If you prefer a snack, there's a 24/7 shop in the hotel reception that offers sandwiches, light bites, crisps, chocolate, sweets etc.Scandic hotels are known for their excellent breakfasts, and the buffet that starts at 7am each morning has something for everyone. Eggs, meats, vegan options, cooked and continental, pastries, coffee, juice - I genuinely have never seen a better breakfast buffet in Norway. No doubt this is inspired by the Scandic Nidelven in Trondheim, which has recently been voted Norway's best hotel breakfast for the 14th time.Overall, I couldn't fault this hotel, and I am looking forward to my next visit.

Positives

  • Clean, modern hotel

  • Spacious rooms, some with terraces

  • Excellent buffet breakfast

Negatives

  • Further to walk than the Comfort Hotel

  • Can be expensive if booking last minute

Comfort Hotel Bergen Airport

A short walk from the airport terminal, the Comfort Hotel Bergen Airport is a good choice if you're flying in late or departing early. After getting through passport control and picking up your luggage, you can be relaxing in your room in under 10 minutes.

November 2022 rates from 1,500 NOK
December 2022 rates from 1,400 NOK
January 2023 rates from 1,500 NOK

A modern, no-frills hotel that is part of the Nordic Choice Hotels group, the Comfort Hotel Bergen Airport's rooms are tastefully decorated with wooden floors, comfortable beds, and excellent bathrooms. Check-in is available via an app, which includes an NFC room key, so you can completely bypass the reception desk if you choose to.The wifi is super fast, and each morning a breakfast buffet is served with plenty of hot and cold options, with the smoothies, yoghurts and overnight oats being my favourite additions.Additional facilities at the Comfort Hotel Bergen Airport include a 'Barception' area where you can relax, get a drink and a meal, and even play small games such as tabletop football, as well as a small gym which guests can make full use of.I have stayed in this hotel many times, overnight, for a few days, and even for a month on a discounted rate when I needed a base in Bergen for work. My parents also recently stayed at the hotel on the first flight from Newcastle to Bergen, and had nothing but positive things to say about their stay at this popular Bergen Airport hotel.

Positives

  • Modern, no frills hotel

  • Short walk from the airport terminal

Negatives

  • Limited choice and service in the restaurant

  • The breakfast buffet isn't as good as Scandic's

Moxy Bergen

Situated between the airport and the city centre, the Moxy is one of Bergen's newest hotels. Part of the international Marriott hotel group, the Moxy Bergen is a modern, funky hotel that focuses on sustainability at an affordable price.

November 2022 rates from 985 NOK
December 2022 rates from 931 NOK
January 2023 rates from 1,200 NOK

There have been a number of hotel openings in Bergen lately, and the Moxy is one of the newest to open in a trendy area known as Solheimsviken, a short distance from the city centre. Although it isn't as close to Bergen Airport as many of the other hotels I recommend, it is easily reached by the Bybanen Light Rail directly from outside of the airport terminal.Moxy is a hip new brand from Marriott that focuses on modern design, sustainability, and affordability, and this hotel certainly ticks all of those boxes. When you first arrive you'll find a ground floor dedicated to meeting and socialising, an open space with plenty of seating area, communal tables and places to relax. You will also check in here at the bar, where the staff are very friendly and welcoming.Each of the hotel's rooms are spacious, modern and uncluttered. You won't find wardrobes and large desks here, but you will find space to hang your clothes and a small work area. The Sea View room that I stayed in had excellent views over Puddefjorden, and plenty of space to chill out with a seating next to the bed, and an egg shaped chair that hung from the ceiling that was perfectly placed for wafching Netflix on the TV through the Chromecast feature.I've also found the hotel to be very affordable for its location, with some excellent rates for under 1,000 NOK per night (room only).Moxy Bergen is only four stops from the city centre on the Bybanen (get off at Florida and walk over the short bridge), so I'd thoroughly recommend staying here if you're looking for a hotel close to the city but with excellent connections to the airport.

Positives

  • Moxy Hotels are committed to sustainability

  • Bedrooms are clean and modern

  • This hotel is one of the more affordable in Bergen, and you get a lot for the price you pay

Negatives

  • 'Social' concept on the ground floor isn't for everyone - you may wish to dine elsewhere

  • No self check in can lead to queues when checking in as staff are multi-tasking

Flights from Newcastle to Bergen Norway

Flights from Newcastle to Bergen Norway

Newcastle Upon Tyne and Bergen have always enjoyed a deep connection thanks to a mutual understanding of culture, trade and support dating back decades, if not centuries. So much so that for over 70 years Newcastle has received the gift of a Christmas tree from the city of Bergen to symbolise the city’s gratitude to Newcastle for its support and friendship during the second world war.For many years there was a ferry connection between the cities, across the North Sea, but this was cancelled due to various economic issues. Since then, a number of airlines have tried to maintain a direct flight connection, without much success, most recently due to the Covid-19 pandemic.Now, Loganair have launched their long-planned route from as little as £101 per person with multiple weekly departures and generous luggage allowances. Additional flights to Bergen with a variety of airlines are also available from different regions of the UK, including London's major airports, but it's so good to see a direct flight connection restored.Visit the Loganair site to learn more >>

Why stay in a hotel near Bergen Airport?

Hotels near Bergen Airport Norway

Since the redevelopment of the Bergen Airport terminal into the modern, purpose-built building that it is today, many new airport hotels have opened, which gives you plenty of choices when you're flying into Norway's Second City and the Gateway to the Fjords.The most compelling reason for booking an airport hotel is convenience, especially if you're flying in late or departing early. The Comfort Hotel is just a short stroll from the arrivals hall, as is the Scandic Flesland just a few minutes walk from that.Flights can be unpredictable, with frequent delays and often waits for your baggage to arrive on the belt, so instead of worrying about getting to your hotel in the city, you can simply check into your airport hotel and enjoy the leisurely journey the next day.Likewise, if you have an early flight and need to be at the airport 2-3 hours before your flight, then staying in an airport hotel means that you don't have to worry about public transport and taxis, and can simply walk into the terminal, drop your bags off, and be through security without the added stress of getting to the airport on time.Book a hotel on Booking.com >>
