Moxy hotel, Marriott Iternational’s recognized brand for young people is now open in Bergen in Norway, on the waterfront.
Bergen is Norway’s second largest city and known for its mountains and fjords. The new Moxy Bergen hotel is located just 300 meters from the nearest light rail station that travel to the city center and Bergen Airport every 10 minutes. The hotel opens in the Solheimsviken area, a business park and knowledge cluster of finance and technology compagnies. Bergen is also an important leisure destination and thus attracts many visitors each year. The hotel benefits from a breathtaking view of the mountains and provides the perfect location to explore the city’s cultural heritage.
“We are very happy to open this beautiful hotel and now want to capitalize on the growing demand for truly authentic experiences. Moxy Bergen was designed to cater to the new demographic of travelers and is unlike any hotel in the city. During the day you’ll find locals and travelers working and playing side-by-side at the Moxy. At night, you might find them challenging each other to a game of Jenga or toasting over drinks,” says a proud Monica Selvik, General Manager of Moxy Bergen.
The hotel consists of 199 guest rooms with premium bedding, a 55” TV with Chromecast, designer amenities and fast Wi-Fi. It also has a bar and a fitness room. A restaurant should also open soon. Special attention was also paid to the responsible design and construction of the hotel. Sustainable choices were taken during the design and construction phase. For example, the hotel is cooled down by water from the fjord, heated by the city's central heating, and the excess heat is converted back into energy in the refrigeration systems. It’s the only design certified BREEAM Excellent hotel in Norway, as of date.
