I'm a writer and filmmaker from the US who shares time between Bergen and Boston. Until late 2014 I will be in Norway on a project. I have travelled extensively throughout Europe and enjoy meeting new people and learning about new cultures.
Glenn gave us a warm welcome to his cute house on a rainy day we arrived in Bergen. He showed us around his house and shared practical and helpful info about the city. Our room and bathroom are super clean with a huge jacuzzi! Also love the floor heating which kept us cozy all night. The location of Glenn's house is very close to the city center yet very quiet at night. It's definitely a great place to stay in Bergen! Thanks for making our stay magical :)
We stayed with Glenn for 2 nights and had a really great time. The view from his home is simply amazing as it overlooks the beautiful city with no interrupted views and it's location is perfect for exploring both the waking trails above and the cafes, restaurants and city sights below. We had a car and we parked it close by with no dramas but once we were there, everything was in walking distance anyway (it is located on a hill so expect a relatively steep walk back up from the city area). Glenn is a great host and a very interesting person to talk with over a few wines! The bedroom was very comfortable and the house is really interesting too. We highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed!
We stayed three nights at Glenns house. It was an awesome time! Thanks Glenn for being such a good host! We had time alone whenever we wanted and if we felt like talking we did! Glenn is very open minded and a good dialog partner, if you have any questions about activities or places to go feel free to ask. Our room had a fabulous view over Bergen, as the house is a bit on a hill (but good to walk). During our stay there were a couple of other guest – old, young, women, men all mixed up but all very friendly and easy going! We recommend Glenns house to everyone who wants to have a great stay in Bergen!
We had a great stay at Glenns house last weekend!! Glenn is a great host and we enjoyed his company! We will be back for sure! So if you want good Place to stay in Bergen! Then this is the Place to go to!
Glenn thanks again!!
Small Room but for one night it was totally ok. Everything was clean and the living room offers a great view over Bergen.
If you want to stay at a gorgeous house in Bergen, in a fantastic location, with an amazing host, then stay with Glenn. We visited Bergen for three days and two nights and loved exploring this beautiful city. Glenn was extremely welcoming, making us feel right at home, and gave us some excellent advice on what to see and do. The house is warm, cozy and has spectacular views of the city. Quite literally the best. The pictures don't do it justice. Bergen was our last stop on a week long tour of Scandinavia. Glenn, the house, and the city gave us a perfect end to our journey. I almost didn't want to write this review because if everyone finds out how great Glenn's place is it will be harder to book for our next trip.
Séjour parfait dans cette maison ayant une vue imprenable sur Bergen.
L'accès à la maison est pentu, mais le chemin vaut le coup, et ça monte pendant juste 5-10 minutes.
La maison est sublime, avec une déco bois-moderne qui nous a totalement conquis.
Glenn était absent une bonne partie de notre séjour (il était en voyage), il nous a fait totalement confiance en nous laissant utiliser toute la maison à notre convenance. A son retour nous avons découvert un hote sympathique, très interressant et qui nous a mis a l'aise malgré la médiocrité de notre anglais.
Petit plus, il y a un jaccuzzi dans la maison ce qui fait un bien fou après une journée a marcher.
Nous avons adoré cet endroit et Glenn.
We really enjoyed our stay! The view from the house is amazing, the place is really comfortable and Bergen is a great place to visit as well as the Fjords nearby!
There is not enough room to share how OUTSTANDING a space this is, hosted by the most excellent Glenn Gardner. The comfort and amenities provided in an already wonderful city make me want to MOVE here. The views, the host's eagerness to be helpful in any way, the amazing bathrooms, the common living room with tons of books & a cup of tea... I didn't want to leave. If you plan to visit Bergen ANY time of the year, ask to stay here. You can thank me later. (After thanking Glenn, of course...)
Glenn is a fantastic host! Perfect communication and the apartment is cozy and cute! The beds, shower and everything are cleaned and ready for us when we arrived. We had an amazing stay here and wished we could stay for longer. Bergen is an amazing city and you don't regret staying with Glenn. His apartment has AMAZING view of the city!
