We stayed in the Greven apartment for 3 nights and found it to be very good value for money, given accommodation prices in Norway. We were 3 adults and 2 small children and the apartment was perfect for us. The owners were very friendly and the location is excellent -- a short walk from Bryggen and with a small playground...

We stayed here for 3nights in April and had a fab time. The guest house is self-catering, very clean and attractive. It's right next to the harbour, 5 min walk to everything. The owners we're friendly and took care of everything. Bergen is great; we recommend the fjord cruise and a walk up Mount Floyen. We ❤ Bergen.

We stayed in the penthouse apartment at To Sostre B&B. The penthouse is huge, well equipped and with a beautiful view from the hall and kitchen. The B&B does not provide breakfast, but it is a 15 min walk from the center of Bergen where you will find ample activity. There is a 7-11 just across the street to pick...

To Sostre-Norwegian for "Two sisters"--is now a misnomer, as one of the two original proprietors has gone off to greener pastures, but not to worry, the sterling reviews you will find as you scan the site are every bit as valid as ever. The remaining sister, Yvonne Breen, is a remarkably attentive, helpful and friendly hostess who has maintained the...

This was one of the best accommodations I was in so far. Great location, very nice staff and super clean! I took the loft room and It was great. A lot of space, brand new bathroom and a lot of privacy. They also left a paper with tips for restaurants, bars and supermarkets. Very useful if you want to go...

We stayed three nights in the Carbiner Apartment and could have not been more satisfied. Very well equipped, spacious and brilliantly located in the Bryggen district, it was close to everything to see in Bergen. Providing excellent value, this is provided us with a great base for our Bergen Break.

My family stayed in the loft for 2 days. This was an amazing place to stay. Residential area but very close to downtown and the Floibanen. The room was rustic but beautiful. Very clean, everything we needed. There is also a common area kitchen and living room. Out of our 8 day vacation, (5 different hotels) this was by far...

About 15 minute walk from the train station which was good since we arrived in a practical downpour about 9pm! Get clear directions on how to get to the guesthouse since there are several turns and streets. Bergen can be confusing upon arrival. Bear in mind two rooms share a bathroom which is fine and the upstairs rooms (one of...

We stayed there for 3 nights in the basement in june. Since the sun sets only around midnight it turned out to be actually better because there isn't a lot of light in the night which helped our kids sleep better. There is a small park and a sand play area right next to the B&B which was awesome for...
