About This Listing
Mere 5 kilometers outside the city centre of Bergen, you will find this quiet and cosy apartment. Ride by the Light railway (tram) or by the bus to the city centre, it takes only 15 - 20 minutes. You can even ride a bike, takes you about 20 - 30 minutes depending how fit you are!

The apartment has one bedroom with one double bed plus one single bed. In the livingroom there is a double sleeping sofa (sleeps 2). Alltogether the apartment may sleep 5 good friends or a family (ideal for 3 but 5 may work fine too...). If bringing a small child, a crib (babybed) is available but must be notified. Please state if the child is between 1 and 4 years of age. Once I had a large spanish family staying (total 7 guests including children).

The apartment is clean and stylish. Even bigger than the picture showed. The location is convenient too easy to get the light railway stop and supermarket. Nice experience. Hope to back again.
Trond is a great host who always provided help and answered your questions promptly. His place is clean and furnished. A big plus is the kitchen is well stocked. Great place to accommodate large families or big group.
This apartment was not only wonderful to stay in but is located in a beautiful neighbourhood with easy access to the centre of town and local scenic areas. Trond was a fantastic host who was willing to go above and beyond to fix any issues that had arisen during our stay. I would most definitely come back again, I had a wonderful experience!
Had a great stay in Bergen at Trond's apartment. The apartment was perfect location: close to the bybanen station, quiet neighborhood, everything you need for a nice stay with easy access to city center. I had one small issue with trying to figure out the washing machine and TV controls, but email Trond and he responded that same day. Would highly recommend staying here if you are going to Bergen!
