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!

It takes only about 15 - 20 minutes by taxi to the Bergen Airport (outside rush hour...).
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).

Our host was away on holiday and would have appreciated his help settling in. Couldn't get TV to work, poor wifi and lacked a welcoming touch. Difficult for taxi driver to find. Bathroom a pleasure, access to bedroom precarious up steep staircase. Arrived on Sunday when supermarket closed, so no coffee or milk. Asked for soap and shampoo. Was informed that it's not usual policy to leave, but would leave a little anyway. Barely enough for one wash of hands. Would have cost Trond nothing but would have left us with a much better feeling. Washing machine and instructions great.
Close to a supermarket and tram. Easy to get into center and its charming sites.
A wonderful, spacious place, in beautiful, quiet surroundings, and with a great host. Inspiring architecture. Very convenient tram access to Bergen center. Definitely recommended to everyone!
Excellent location, very clean and convenient.
As a traveling family of 5 with young children we prefer to stay in 'real' neighborhoods with easy access to tourist attractions when visiting a new town. This location was just what we were looking for and was very clean when we arrived.
We took the train into downtown Bergen several times and walking down to the Kiwi at the bottom of the hill made buying food for meals extremely easy. The kitchen was stocked with all the dishes and cooking pots and pans we needed. We were able to get away from it all and rest when needed and yet go to downtown Bergen without really thinking about travel time.
Trond was very helpful during our stay in Bergen providing excellent communication and ideas for sights and activities around town both prior to and upon our arrival.
The general neighborhood was very beautiful. I was able to take runs to the beach and a Stave church just out the front door following several of the of biking paths just down the hill and we enjoyed dinner on the small patio several times.
I would highly recommend this location when visiting Bergen.
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!
Vänligt bemötande av Trond.
Lugn och ro i tyst, mysig lägenhet.
Närhet till affär och bybanen.
