About this listing
A 37 m2 Studio Apartment located in Sandviken. Just a short walk from Bergens famous Bryggen and historically one of the first urban areas developed in Bergen. The neighborhood is at the bottom of the Fløyen mountain and is renowned for its white traditional wooden houses.
The apartment is newly renovated with a rustic interior. Sacha and Karsten (who call the apartment home) both come from a creative background something which has led to numerous do-it-yourself design and interior solutions. The apartment has a lot of charming details and personality.
It has all the standard appliances including a washer and dryer, Wifi and cable tv.
The apartment used to be a lefse (Thin pastry served folded and spread with butter and other foods) bakery a century ago.
Ideally suited for couples and small families visiting Bergen.

Our two night stay was ok but not great. All comments about location are correct.
The room is too small for more than two people. The provided extra beds for our children were of minimum comfort.
Overall the place was not clean enough at all. Sheets were doubtfull clean or fresh.
For our privacy and comfort there were too many private items. E.g. clothes and food in fridge.
Not worth the price.
Great location , short walk from historic area and in a lovely neighbourhood. Apartment was as described, retro and quirky. Great walk up top of main hill in Bergen which we did rather than talking the funicular .
Karsten was there to show us the apartment when we arrived in the evening. The apartment is in a great location, just upslope from the harbour. Karsten also provided us with a parking permit when we needed to park our car outside the apartment. The apartment is charmingly furnished and the kitchen was very well-equipped! Thanks for a great stay!
Great place in a perfect location. It's about a five minute walk from the last stop on the Airport shuttle. Karsten met us at the place and gave us a couple great restaurant recommendations. It's walkable to any place you want to go in the city.
We stayed at Karsten´s appartment for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. The appartment is in a nice and central area, you can reach the inner city/harbor easily by foot.
We haven´t met Karsten as he was abroad during our stay, but he took care that we got the keys to his apparment without any trouble and right at our arrival.
We enjoyed our walk up to the bnb! Bergen is a beautiful city and the apartment is in a good location. The place is clean and quiet. There is a grocery conveniently 2 blocks away and the hustle and bustle of Bergen is just down the hill. We went on fjord tours while we were in bergen and walked to the train station several times; it takes 17 minutes if you walk quickly and is a very pleasant morning walk through the town.
We had a very nice two nights stay at Karstens studio. Communication with Karsten prior to our stay was clear and fast. Upon arrival we were welcomed by him and we soon got settled.
Studio was clean and felt like 'being at home'. Location of the studio is perfect, you walk downhill to the center within 10 minutes. Karsten bought us parking licences (reduced price for residents) and we reimbursed him for them.
All in all we recommend this studio to everyone. If we come back to Bergen, we will for sure consider it again.
