The Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies worldwide, announces the extension of the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Bergen in Norway. The 273 rooms-property will fully be renovated and get 71 additional rooms. Works are scheduled to begin in early 2010, the new rooms will be available in 2013. During this period, the hotel will remain operational.
The “new” hotel will feature 344 guest rooms. Food and beverage outlets include an all day dining restaurant, Madam Felle, Beffen Bar, and Engelen Night Club. The revitalised meeting space will include an expanded ballroom and 17 state-of-the art meeting rooms.
A landmark in Bergen, the Radisson Blu is located on the waterfront, amidst the surviving Hanseatic wooden buildings, many of which are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Although quiet and picturesque, the hotel is near all of the city’s attractions, including the famous fish market.
Bergen is the second largest city in Norway and an important cultural hub (European Capital of Culture in 2000). Nestled between forested mountains and the enchanting sea, the city offers a wealth of activities to tempt tourists, including skiing, hiking, fishing and boating. It truly lives up to its nickname “Gateway to the Fjords”.
