Penthouse with balcony in Sandviken

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Rotthaugsgaten, Bergen, Hordaland 5033, Norway

Modern, yet charming penthouse duplex with balcony in a quiet street in Sandviken. Bryggen and the Fishmarket in the centre is only a 10-15 minutes walk away, so are popular mountain hikes. Enjoy the romantic bedroom, morning sun at the balcony, Italian design kitchen and unique top floor livingroom.

The apartment
The apartment is situated on the two top floors of a 100 year old building, totally renovated in 2008. The standard is high with modern qualities, and the furniture and decor a mix between old and new to make it feel like home.

The master bedroom has a comfortable, 140 cm bed that accomodates two people, and a third person may sleep on the large sofa in the livingroom.

On the first floor of the apartment you have: entrance, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, bedroom with double bed and a chaiselong, bathroom with shower and washer/dryer, and a large balcony with (possibilities of) morning and afternoon sun. Up the stairs to the loft you find the livingroom with a section for relaxing, one for working and one for eating. Not to forget the french balcony with an unusual view of Bergen.

I am available for guests on Airbnb and mobile before and during your stay and will do my best to assist you and make the most of your visit.

If I am not travelling I will be staying at a a different address in Bergen during your stay.

The area of Sandviken gives you the best of what Bergen has to offer. Central, yet quiet and charming. You have access to all the sights and attractions of the centre, as well as different hiking possibilities in two of Bergen's seven mountains. There is a large, popular park 150 meters away. You'll find a grocery shop with fresh food, a drugstore, a 7-Eleven and a cosy café within 5 minutes (website hidden). The street view option usually shows a neighboring street, not mine.

The apartment is situated 7 minutes walk from the last stop of the Airport Express Coach at Bryggen. The nearest busstop with buses to the centre is 80 meters away, and there is one with buses going/connecting to most destinations 300 meters from the apartment.

A parking permit is necessary to park on the streets in the area. A guest parking permit costs NOK 100 per day and must be purchased in advance. Let me know if you want me to arrange this for you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a fabulous time in Bergen over New Year. Thank you to Vanja for the use of her lovely apartment. It had everything we could need and was immaculately clean and well furnished.
    The only warning is how steep the stairs are, which wasn't a problem for us, but could be for some people.

  • Nice apartment. The apartment is really nice and make people feel very comfortable. The location is good, its just more than 5 mins walk to the town center. Also, Vanja is very nice, friendly and helpful. Although she is out of town during our stay at the Christmas time, she had prepared us some breakfasts as all shops close during Christmas time.

    Definitely suggest to everyone!

  • This is a fantastic apartment for a couple looking for a place to explore Bergen from. The apartment itself is immaculately clean and Vanja even stocks a shelf in the fridge with some essentials for her guests like eggs, milk and juice. The apartment is on 2 floors on the third floor of the building. The bedroom, kitchen, great bathroom and spacious balcony on the ground floor, the living room and dining room are on the upper floor (steep spiral stairs). It's very warm and cosy and also very modern but comfortable. Canna still has a lot of belongings in the apartment so there isn't and space to hang up lots of clothes which wasn't a problem for us but might be for others.

    The apartment is situated a 10-15 minute walk from the town centre but is surrounded by ridiculously cool shops and cafe's. Try Cafe Barrista just down the road! Bergen is incredibly expensive so be warned. On the other hand it's a fantastic place to explore and is very beautiful with lots to do and places to explore even over our 4 rainy cold days.

  • We had a great stay in Bergen. Vanjas Apartement was great and I can warmly recommend it. It´s just some minutes outside the city center in a nice neighbourhood and you have to walk some meters up the hills. But its worth the walk!

  • A lovely place to stay close to Bergen harbour, Bryggen, fishmarket and floibanen. The apartment was immaculately clean, well equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay and very peaceful.

    Vanja was a very helpful host, helping us out when a couple of minor issues arose.

    I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Bergen.

  • From the moment my boyfriend and I arrived in this magical city, we were smitten - and Vanja's apartment was part of that. The check-in process was smooth, and the apartment itself was stunning - very clean, beautiful views, tastefully decorated. The apartment is located a short walk from all the central Bergen sights, and we loved walking up the hill back home every night. We stayed in 5 different AirBnB apartments around Scandinavia, and this was my favorite one. I would highly recommend Vanja's apartment to anyone that wants a unique Bergen experience.

  • Vanja's apartment is amazing. The decor is modern and chic. Everything you would expect from Scandinavian furnishing and style. She even has a small library of travel books on the 2nd floor. The weather was rather bad on the days that my family and I were there, but we had no qualms about staying in, seeing how at home we felt in her apartment. It's clean and spacious and equipped with more than the basic necessities. Her iMac was useful when looking for restaurants and making reservations, and it was much appreciated that she allowed us to use her toiletries and kitchen products.

    It's about a 10-15mins leisurely walk to the main tourist areas. Was rather problematic for us on the first day as we had to lug our bags in the rain and there were quite a few slopes (not major ones though.) The walk through the neighborhood also allows you to catch a glimpse of authentic Nordic living, away from the main city area. Seeing how her apartment is a penthouse, it's located on the top floor, which may be an issue if you're traveling with senior citizens as there's no lift. But you could see it as a form of daily exercise as well!

    In any case, I would definitely recommend this to anyone. Would love to stay here again if I were to visit Bergen another time.

  • Vanja's apartment is truly beautiful and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed staying in Sandviken, which is a bit calmer and less touristy than Bryggen. Thank you Vanja!
