The host showed traditional Indian Hospitality in that he went out of his way to make us comfortable. It commenced with him offering to pick us up from Bergen Central and then paying the cab fare when he was unable to make it. Further he dropped us to the bus stop on day of departure and such gestures leave an indelible impression.
The accommodation was very good and had a superb view of Bergen. The bathroom big and the number of after shaves and colognes fantastic. He catered for a good breakfast and inquired about our taste and also guided us regarding local sight-seeing.
I will love to return to his villa if possible in this lifetime.
Staying with Bernt in his “Villa on the Hill” was a real pleasure. The home is spacious and modern with everything needed to make breakfast daily. The bedroom is roomy and the bed comfortable. The bathroom is also large and the facilities to wash and dry clothing functions well. Bernt went out of his way to make us feel at home. He is personable and friendly and obviously loves Norway and especially Bergen.
The location of the home is apparently close to the city center on the map but, in reality, because of the steepness of the hill to the house, it is quite a trek. In fact, it is probably not negotiable by foot with luggage. Bus number 11 goes up the hill from near the central train station once each hour till about 11 PM but even the walk from the bus stop to Bernt’s home is a challenge with luggage. It is much better to use a taxi from downtown or rent a car if one is carrying luggage. We used the bus daily (31 kroner adult and 16 kroner senior) to return home up the hill and walked down the hill in the morning to begin our adventures.
All in all, staying with Bernt was delightful and we would certainly stay here again upon return to Bergen.
Bernt was affable and his home was comfortable. In fact, the beds were among the best we found on our entire trip. He had friends over both nights which gave us an opportunity to discuss a number of subjects with Norwegians. Finding his house was a little complicated and the road narrow, but it was great having parking available. Bernt house is in a great location for hiking and enjoying Bergen.
Communication with Bernt was excellent! He also picked us up from the train station upon arrival. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood away from the city. Getting to the city isn't complicated at all once you find your bearing. The room was nice, and the bed was very comfortable. I would highly command Bernt's place.
Bernt is a friendly host. The house is nice.
Extremely amazing and friendly host. Great apartment with extremely comfortable beds and view and kitchen. One of the best airbnb experiences ever. Bravo!
We spent a wondeful sunny weekend in Bergen and out in the fjords. Bernt is a very hospitable host and we had a place with all we needed and more to reload our batteries inbetween. We felt like at home! Thank you Bernt!
We spent two really nice nights at Bernt's home. The view is amazing over Bergen. The living room is cosy and we felt like home. We had really nice conversations about Norway. Recommended!
Nous partageons notre très bonne expérience chez Bernt. Une tres belle maison avec une incroyable vue. Il y a une belle montée a pied mais on profite encore mieux de la vue arrivés en haut. Nous avons partagé des soirées avec Bernt ce qui est très agréable lorsqu on arrive sur Bergen pour avoir de bons conseils.
Our stay in Bergen was perfect. Bernt was an awesome host and a great guy. His house was beautiful, relaxing and clean...(with incredibly comfortable beds). We felt right at home. The breakfast was tasty and the walk to the city center was a nice stroll away (or bus option was close by). Bernt showed us a unique Norwegian experience that we truly couldn't have had elsewhere. We really enjoyed his company. Plus, he even went so far as to pick us up from the bus station last minute and offered us flexible checkin/checkout.
I really recommend Bernt's villa for a great time in Bergen.
Bernt's Villa is a lovely place to stay. His genuine nature just added to our experience of Bergen. I highly recommend this place.
