Birger the owner met us as expected and showed us around the apartment, including how to use the washer. The apartment was clean and had every amenity one would need including, iron/ironing board, toiletries(including toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, hand and body soap, lotion etc.), coffee maker and tea kettle, stove, dishes/flatware and many kitchen utensils (more than any other place we have stayed). It is a two story house with bedroom and bathroom/toilet on the first floor and the living, dining and kitchen are on the second floor. Living room has great view of Mount Floyen.
For anyone with bad knees this is probably not the best place as it is situated on a hill in Bergen, plus there is a stairwell just to enter the house, not including the fact that the house itself is two story. If you are in at least average shape though, this house is highly recommended!
There are several restaurants in close proximity and two grocery stores. It is a 10 minute walk down hill to the fish market, funicular, waterfront, downtown and also to the airport bus stop.
This was a wonderful place to stay in Bergen. The location is excellent in relation to the harbor. It's close to the attractions but you are in a quiet, authentic neighborhood. The landlords gave thought of every detail to make your stay excellent. I was so pleased with the accommodations, and then I stepped into the shower room and found that the floor was heated! Fabulous! It is a typical small Norwegian house suitable for two, or a family with one or two small children, as there is a nice sofa bed in the living room. Wifi is reliable. Grocery store nearby.
Both Birger and Sonja went out of their way to assist us in many areas. The house is charming and well equipped. It was not easy for us to find initially. Well worth staying here when in Bergen.
This was the perfect location in Bergen! A quick 10 minute walk into the city center and close to restaurants and bars. The hosts are extremely friendly and helpful throughout the stay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Bergen!
