About this listing
Newly refurbished top floor apartment situated in the very heart of Bergen, just behind the famous "Bryggen" (the city quays/harbourside), in the street called Steinkjellergaten. Very central, as it is merely 200 meters walk from Bryggen quays and the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel and about 300 meters to the Bergen Fishmarket. The Bergen Fishmarket is in the middle of the city centre, and is one of the major tourist spots, and here you will find the tourist office as well.
As you can imagine, it is therefore walking distance from the apartment in Steinkjellergaten to most sights, shops, bars and restaurants. The nearest soup cafè is about 20 meters from the entrance door! The nearest grocery shop and corner shops (open till late) is about 50 meters away. There are several very nice barista places (cafè) in the neighborhood.
The apartment has a balcony with rooftop view over the city centre including the harbour, with ships/boats coming in and out. Imagine relaxing on the balcony in the evening sipping to a glass of red wine?
WiFi: the apartment has got free high speed wireless internet connection for my guests! Speed is 20MBPS download/5MBPS upload. Pretty fast, and sufficient for most people.
The apartment has got 2 Bedrooms. NEW! Bedroom #1 has got 2 single beds of width 80cm (can be put together to one double bed width 160cm). Bedroom #2 has got a 140cm wide double bed. The living room has got a sofabed (pull-out-bed) that sleeps 2.
Maximum people would then be 6.
The apartment has got TV with a couple of foreign channels (english spoken), and a little radio is also present (no iPod docking though...).
Kitchen with amenities including stove, fridge/freezer, water kettle, microwave oven, Nespresso coffemaker (bring coffecapsules or buy at the Nespresso store in Strandgaten of Bergen). Clothes washingmachine in the bathroom. Shower and WC. Bathroom floor has got heating cables. The general standard of the apartment would be rated high.
Parking: no parking immediately outside the house, use street parking or P-house.
There is a shuttlebus service to the Bergen Airport running from the fishmarket or outside Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Bryggen (2 mins walk), otherwise taxis running from Bryggen (or from your doorstep).
Still something you wonder about? Send me a message, and I will be at your service :-)
Other Things to Note
coming by rental car or your own car: it is possible to park somewhat higher up in the area (street parking, not possible to pay for parking). Seldom the traffic warden comes around there. Just outside the door or in the street Stølegaten it is not advised to park, you will get a parking fine there. That is because the parking is reserved for resident parking ticket holders only. Otherwise use public parking house 2 minutes walk away, in the Rosenkrantz street.
Coming to Bergen for the 2017 UCI Road Cycle World Championships race, either as competitor, support team or spectator? Well, this is the spot for for you! Stay 200 meters from the starting line/finishing line and the main event hotel (Radisson). Be sure to reserve early, the available hotel rooms and apartments in Bergen will be fully booked around one year before the event.
Quiet after 22.00 at nights.
The apartment has got 2 real single beds, 1 real double bed, and one pull-out-sofa (sleeps 6 in total).
No pets allowed.
