Come stay at our guestroom - plenty of privacy, comfortable bed and a four-minute stroll to the city centre. We hope to see you soon!
We've hosted a great number of fantastic people of all ages and all nationalities - we'd love to have you as our next visitor!
OBS! If this is your first Airbnb experience, please fill out your profile before asking to book - I like to know a bit about who you are :-)
OBS! The current photos of the room is taken of my room, i.e. not the one you'll get. I'll update this asap (by February 2014).
Excellent location and very high standard make this apartment ideal for your stay in Bergen - located literally a five minute walk away from Bryggen (the wharf), Bergen's most famous place (and conveniently, the final bus stop of the airport shuttle bus).
Bryggen is also the start of the city centre, so the core of the city is another 3 minutes walk away, while the popular Mount Fløien is 5 minutes in the opposite direction.
We have four bedrooms, three of which are occupied by the three of us living here - the final one is for you! The guest room has a regular-sized single bed (90cm wide) and a closet for your clothes. The room gives a lot of privacy, as it is connected to the initial entry hallway of the apartment - in other words, you do not have to stroll through the living room and whatnot to get to your room. This means that you can choose to spend as little or as much time with us in the living room area as you wish yourself.
Our main reason for using Airbnb is quite simply that as much as we love to travel, we cannot afford to see the world as much as we wish to on a tight student budget. Therefore, we love bringing the world to us and to our home in our everyday life through Airbnb.
Our apartment is 90 square metres big (1000sq.feet), most of which is accumulated in a big combined living room/kitchen. We have a big, clean bathroom with a shower, and you can borrow a towel if you wish. Laundry machine is also present and available if you wish to do some washing.
Free use of WIFI is included.
No smokers and no pets, please.
See you soon!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLACE:
Q: How do I get to the apartment?
A: If you arrive from the airport; take the airport bus to Bryggen (final stop), then walk 5 minutes.
If you arrive by train, walk 20 minutes through the city center, and here you are. Please do print a map from Airbnb before you get to Bergen. After a confirmed order, you get the address and closer descriptions - please read them carefully, so I don't have to write them out in a message again every time.
Q: Do I need to bring towels or linens?
A: Nope! I provide these things to save you luggage space and hassle. Also, to further un-hassle your travel, you can use our laundry machine, hair dryer, microwave, coffee maker and fridge as you please.
Q: What does "Flexible" check-in/-out time mean?
A: We will try to accomodate your check-in or check-out, no matter what time it is. Note that early check-ins are not always possible if I have a guest leaving that morning, as I need to allow them to check out and prepare the room for you. We will sort all of this out if you message us.
Q: Will I have a key? Can I come and go as I please?
A: Yes and yes of course.
Q: I see I'm renting a "Private Room". How much privacy do I have?
A: You have your own bedroom, and share bathroom and kitchen/living room with us. When you want to be social, join us in the living room! If you want to pull back and relax, close the door to your bedroom and chill out.
Q: The pictures look pretty cool. Is that how the place really looks?
A: Yes, no humbug here - it's the real deal you see in the photos.
Q: Do I get breakfast?
A: We go to school in the morning, we don't run a hotel - so don't expect us to make it for you. Feel free to steal our oatmeal though :-)
Q: I'm a smoker - can I stay with you?
A: No - one of us is allergic to the smell of tobacco. The same goes for horseriders and dog/cat-lovers, unfortunately.
See you soon!
Private room and "common areas", i.e. bathroom, living room, hallway and kitchen.
We live here too, but the amount of contact is largely up to you. Your room is shielded from the rest of the apartment, so you can really choose whether or not to hang out with us in the living room. :-)
We will be in and out of the apartment during the day as we head off to study each morning.
The area is a beautiful one made up of old wooden houses, a traditional way of house-building in Bergen. Many of the houses around are old, crooked and skewed, small and exceptionally charming. The rest of the city is a stroll away, and the small city centre area is ideal for exploration by foot.
Check out my guidebook on the front of this listing for great tips on where to go, what to see and where to eat!
The airport bus stops a 5 minute walk from here, and regular buses are 2 minutes walking away. However, the location is so central that if you're going to stick around the city centre, walking is the best option.
Clean, simple accommodation shared with three delightfully congenial college students. A 5 minute walk to the tourist area. I even walked to & from train station, about 25 min. Bergen is a treat & this accommodation is perfect.
Jacob and his housemates are really nice guys and really keen to give you advices on good restaurants and/or things to do.
The flat is nice and cosy. As said by Jacob in his advert you know what you get. There is no gap between the advert and the reality.
Eventually, the house is 10 min. walking from the historical center, in a student area and 20 minutes from the train station.
Amazing house! Amazing location! Amazing hosts! Amazing town!
Nice place, nice people, nice room. I will definetly recomend Jacob's accomodation to others
The entire house was tidy, clean and well furbished, especially the kitchen and the bathroom (and our room too!).
The house is in a quiet area, with supermarkets and some restaurants.
The Brygge and the harbor is just 10 minutes walk.
We enjoyed our stay in Jacob's house!
jacob and his roomflates are really nice and friendly. the place was good and clean and very close to the centre. really great!
Jacob was a great host and the appartment very clean.
Great bathroom & living room.
Stay at Jacob's house was just perfect! Jacob is really a great guy, very hospitality and made me feel at home. It looked liked we were friends from a long time! We had a great time talk about several stuff, and he taught me about the "friluftsliv"- an awesome norwegian way of life. His roommates are very nice as well. The place is really good, and very near to the bryggen and the mountains. I would strongly recommend to stay in Jacob's place for anyone going to Bergen!
I stayed in Jacob's apartment for two nights. His roommates had already left for the summer and Jacob was holding down the fort. He is a really nice guy and you can completely rely on him as a host. I recommend his place to anyone who is looking for a centrally located place to stay in Bergen.
