(Review) Citybox Bergen - Norway

Citybox Bergen is budget hotel, located nor far from Bergen Bus Station and Bergen Railway Station. I booked the room on Agoda website but when received the booking confirmation, it showed the booking made via booking.com. That's no problem. The payment is upon the check-in. Check-in is self service and payment by credit card requires pin code. 

Access from Bergen Airport, (Bergen Lufthavn)

1. Flybussen: Bus departs every 10-15 minutes. I takes 20 minutes from Bergen Airport. Get off at 1st stop (Bergen Busstasjon), walk 400-500 m.

2. Light Rail: Bergen Lufthavn Station to Nonneseter Station, 43 minutes from airport. Walk 400-500 m.
