I live centrally in Bergen together with my wife and two children (4 and 1 years old). My interests incluce, among others, basketball, film, fishing, football, and political science.
Very cozy, functional, clean and convenient attic apartment. We enjoyed our stay very much.
We had a great time in Sveinung´s appartment. It is close to the city center, charming, well equipped and in a very lovely area. Highly recommend!
Really nice flat in an amazing city. We strongly recommand it!
The apartment is in a picturesque, historic part of Bergen, and close to the harbor, train/bus/tram, museums, shopping, etc. The apartment is exactly as advertised. It is compact, but has everythiing you will need for a brief or extended visit to Bergen. The apartment was clean, well-maintained, and well-furnished. There were four adults in the party (plus 3 other guests for dinner most nights!), but we were comfortable. There are numerous skylights in the apartment, so the natural lighting was superb. We did not meet Svein, but his father introduced himself and made us feel welcome. We had one or two small problems related to the washer (how to get it started), but Svein responded promptly to our emails with solutions. I have nothing but raves for this charming apartment.
The apartment is small but charming and very conveniently located with easy walking distance to everything in the old town including the train/bus stations. It was a tight fit for 3 adults - the extra bed is a wide shelf in the kitchen: extra short, extra hard and no privacy. However it would be ideal for a family with small children! The kitchen was well equipped for cooking meals to save money. The fridge has ample space but no freezer.
The whole attic apartment was cleverly designed to get the most space and modern conveniences without destroying the charm of an old house. We didn't get to meet Sveinung in person, but communication/directions/key access was clear and easy. It was a thrill to stay in a historic house in the old district.
Cozy. As Advertised. Helpful host. Historic Neighborhood. Make sure to ask host the best way to walk there to avoid all the hills.
Extremely cozy attic apartment for my party of 4 adults for a couple of nights. In our Airbnb search options, we felt it was one of the best two priced places in Bergen for 4 people. The Strangebakken street was very charming and the check in/check out process was simple. For those needing to wash clothes, the washer handle was broken when we arrived but you just have to nudge it loose for it to open/close. Apparently it broke because some prior visitors opened it prematurely after washing their clothes. I did not see any nearby laundry facilities so the washing machine here is a life saver in Bergen. When exiting the apartment down the hill, you'll find some flatter streets to walk toward the fish market (Fisketorget); otherwise, you can walk up the hill and have a shorter walk distance wise but with more inclines. I don't know if the upgraded bathroom had a floor which was actually heated but we felt it was!
The apartment is as described on avery charming street, walking distance from railroad station, museums, park. The apartment is very complete, with all necessary things provided, and the internet worked perfectly.
The only precaution I would give is that this apartment may not be suitable for someone who has accessibility issues or an elder person because the street is very steep and there are two flights of circular steps. For anyone else, it should not be a problem.
All communications were prompt and clear.
Sveinung and family were very helpful and approachable this was our first bnb experience and will certainly do again. The apartment and lication were as described. It was great to get away from the crowds and spend time in a cosy apartment. Warm, welcoming and had all we needed for a good stay. Hope to go back.
We had a good, short stay. We had quite hard time to find the place but Bergen's people are very nice. They helped us to find the house.
Great to meet the family with the new born!
Sveinung and Christina and the two lovely kids, including the visits of both grandparents and the sister just brought my place to life for the month of march! It was lovely to see how the Norwegian family unfold under the temperatures of Almeria and slowly started to trust the good weather and to see how they explored the beaches and inaugurated the season in my pool! Wonderful and very independent and great to have! I enjoyed the baby girl standing for the first time and crawling and happily brabbeling and their son full of play and joy for the little things around the house. The parents reading and watching the stars at night, relaxing at most and enjoying their very precious time with the kids! Thank you for making my spring! Come back!
Sveinung stayed at my apt for a few days. He was a very nice and Kind guest. Would recommend him any time!
Thank you for staying with me!
It was a pleasure to have Sveinung as a guest in my apartment for more than a week. Everything went very well and smoothly. Easy communication beforehand and during his stay... He treated my place as if it had been his own: full of respect and very caring. I highly recommend Sveinung as a guest: the perfect airbnb experience! Thanks
Excellent guest, great communication and left everything in perfect condition- thank you. Highly recommended and always welcome to stay!
