About this listing
New small apartment ( 27 sq. m ) situated in quiet Sandviken, the most beautiful part of Bergen right on the moutainside and a 5 minute walk from Bryggen.
Beautifully and newly renovated (2012/2013) apartment in quiet street. We live upstairs Centrally located within few minutes from Bryggen and the fishmarket, in the best and most beautiful part of Bergen - Sandviken.
The apartment is 29 square meters with a kitchen/living room and bedroom with a small double-bed.
The house consists of three apartments, two small ones covering the first floor and basement and a larger one upstairs on the second floor and loft. I live upstairs myself and rent out the other two.
You`ll have full privacy and a private entrance but can rest assure that I`m just a door away if anything is needed. I`ve decorated and furnished the apartments to my own personal taste to give your stay a personal touch.
We`re more than happy to give you the best inside-guide to the best of Bergen - walks, cafees, pubs, restaurants, scenes, museums, night-clubs and other attractions.
It`s close to downtown Bergen and has some faboulous restaurants and cafés right outside the doorstep. Six minutes walk from the Airport-express bus-stop at Bryggen ( last stop - Radisson Blu Bryggen )
It has two supermarkets within two minutes walking distance (open until 22 and 23). The apartment is located at the foot of Sandviksfjellet and offers GREAT opportunities for walking and running.
We can provide an extra matrass if needed. Streetparking outside is 100 NOK pr. 24 hours - we`ll provide you with a guest permit when you arrive, payable in cash only.
You`re welcome! :)
We also have the other apartment on the ground floor for rent - you can have them together if you`re a party of more than two or a family.
Please note that there is no TV in any of the apartments. Feedback was that they were not being used - we guess most people travel with a PC or tablet anyway, so we threw out the TVs and upgraded the internet instead.
The flat is 100% private. Nothing is shared with the guests of the other apartment or with us in the main apartment upstairs.
Interaction with Guests
It depends - of course! We seem to always figure it out, and we`re friendly and sociable. Whatever feels natural :-)
We take as great pride in our neighbourhood as our house. It`s like a small village, but in the heart of Bergen. Our street is a wonderful mix of old and young, students, children, couples and familes. We try to support our local shops and cafés as much as possible. We like the proximity to the mountains, and love the walk down to center, which is a part of the ancient path between medieval Bergen and Oslo. The parks are also a plus on sunny days, and so is the fortress which is just downhill from us.
The airport-express-stop ( Radisson Blu Bryggen ) is six minutes to walk ( we`ve measured ) and there is a bus downtown just down the street, but most guests like the short walk when going downtown. Streetparking outside is available and 120 NOK pr. day ( we have passes for sale )
Live and let live and don`t smoke indoors :)
I can only describe this place as perfect.. It has everything you need, including a washing machine and heated bathroom floor which was a dream.. It is only a 10 minute walk from town and 5 minute walk to the mountains. Bengt was a brilliant host, and made sure we were looked after through out our stay.. 5* and will definitely be back..
Very easy and comfortable- and away from the touristy crowds- a great respite! Ella and Bengt met us after we walked up the stairs from the airport bus. They directed us to 3 very delicious places to eat/drink: Spesial, for dinner, Bastant Stolegaten for lunch and Dr. Weisener for drinks on the mountain top. We loved kaffemisjonen for coffee.
Ella (& Bengt) did a great job! Their place is walkable from Bryggen and numerous other tourist hot spots. It was clean and nicely decorated. Our key pickup and drop off was smooth. We needed to follow-up regarding a few basic amenities (2nd bath towel, garbage bags, wifi password) -- all of which were rectified immediately.
Thanks Ella & Bengt for assisting with a very memorable trip!
Great location (10 min walking distance to the city, supermarket just round the corner, quiet neighbourhood), well-equipped (dishwasher, washing machine, induction stove, oven), clean, and newly-renovated. We stayed for more than 6 months and absolutely loved our time here. Wonderful hosts too.
Me hospedé tres meses en la casa de Ella y Bengt. La situación de la casa es idónea, cerca de centro pero en un barrio tranquilo, a 10 min a pie del centro. Durante mi estancia allí nunca fue necesario el uso de transporte público para moverme por la zona céntrica de la ciudad. Tiene rápido acceso a Floyen, una de las montañas que rodea Bergen donde se puede disfrutar de la naturaleza. Ella y Bengt estuvieron siempre disponibles para cualquier necesidad, son muy simpáticos. La casa no se encuentra amueblada exactamente igual que en las fotos, pero sigue siendo igual de acogedora, está equipada con todo lo necesario.
Easy contact bevor arrival,very good located-nice house in the heart of Bergen!
Such a charming apartment, in a cute neighborhood! The location was ideal; 10 minute walk to the harbor. I loved my walk to and from the city centre each day. The apartment was super clean with a cute balcony to enjoy a nice glass of wine after a day of exploring Bergen. Would definitely recommend!

About the Host, Ella ( & Bengt )
I`m an openminded musician and artist with a passion for film and theater. I live upstairs in the same house as our two Airbnb-apartments, with my boyfriend Bengt, who is a lawyer and our cat. We love Airbnb and try to be as good hosts as we are guests!
