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.
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.
No smoking indoor allowed!
Not suitable for handicapped/disabled people (stairs, no elevator).
Very central, cosy and in a nice neighbourhood! I would recommend Trond's place for anyone wanting to experience Bergen.
Fantastic apartment in an ideal setting in Bergen. The apartment was very central to everything we wanted to get to and very comfortable for four guests. Trond provided excellent recommendations for restaurants and bars that made our stay extremely enjoyable. The Bergen City Centre apartment is where we'll stay if we ever find ourselves back in Bergen again.
The neighborhood was great and an easy walk to the main part of town. Having the keys in a lockbox was convenient although very hard to see at night.
Trond was a good host .. Apartment is decent . But if u have too much luggage then it's a pain ... Location of apartment was good .. All needed grocery stores were very close ... Umbrellas were broken ...
Trond was very responsive and sent great recommendations and instructions to get in the apartment prior to the trip.
The apartment itself was comfortable and in a great location. We had some issues with the shower (only had hot water) and although we didn't stay long enough to resolve the issue, Trond responded to my note promptly.
