Norway 2 bedroom holiday Apartment for rent in Bergen Hordaland Western Norway Norway

Description: Apartment in Bergen

Bergen City Centre; Great view! Very central !










Trond W.


Newly refurbished top floor apartment situated in the very heart of Bergen, just behind the famous "Bryggen" (the city quays/harbourside), in the street called Steinkjellergaten. Very central, as it is merely 200 meters walk from the apartment to Bryggen quays and to the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel and about 300 meters to the Bergen Fishmarket. The Bergen Fishmarket is in the middle of the city centre, and is one of the major tourist spots, and here you will find the tourist office as well.
As you can imagine, it is therefore walking distance from the apartment in Steinkjellergaten to most sights, shops, bars and restaurants. The nearest soup cafè is about 20 meters from the entrance door! The nearest grocery shop and corner shops (open till late) is about 50 meters away. There are several very nice barista places (cafè) in the neighborhood.
The apartment has a balcony with rooftop view over the city centre including the harbour, with ships/boats coming in and out. Imagine relaxing on the balcony in the evening sipping to a glass of red wine?
WiFi: the apartment has got free wireless HighSpeed internet connection for my guests! Speed is 20MBPS download and 5MBPS upload. Fast enough for most people :-) No hotel can provide same speed...
The apartment has got 2 Bedrooms. NEW! Bedroom #1 has got 2 single beds of width 80cm (can be put together to one double bed width 160cm). Bedroom #2 has got a 140cm wide double bed. The living room has got a sofabed (pull-out-bed) that sleeps 2.
Maximum people would then be 6.
The apartment has got TV with a couple of foreign channels (english spoken), and a little radio is also present (no iPod docking though...).
Kitchen with amenities including stove, fridge/freezer, water kettle, microwave oven, Nespresso coffemaker (bring coffecapsules or buy at the Nespresso store in Strandgaten of Bergen). Clothes washingmachine in the bathroom. Shower and WC. Bathroom floor has got heating cables. The general standard of the apartment would be rated high.
Parking: no parking immediately outside the house, use street parking or P-house.
There is a shuttlebus service to the Bergen Airport running from the fishmarket or outside Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Bryggen (2 mins walk), otherwise taxis running from Bryggen (or from your doorstep).
Still something you wonder about? Send me a message, and I will be at your service :-)

avatar Modern apartment in old town with stunning views
Rating: (5) rate
E-mail correspondence prior to stay was prompt and helpful. Check in was a breeze. Climbing 46 stairs to the apartment was a very small price to pay for the absolutely stunning views from the balcony. We soon mastered the act of dipping and weaving through the apartment to avoid hitting our heads on the sloping ceilings! Wifi was always reliable. The position of the apartment could not have been better and wandering the narrow cobbled streets was one of the highlights of our stay. Would stay here again in a flash.

Perfect place if you manage a few stairs. Lovely surroundings and picturesque neighborhood. Close to shops, and easy self-serving-living. Nice and clean. All we needed in the kithcen and boy what a view for dinner!!! Be prepaired for a litle bit noise at night, but then againg, that`s the name of the game if you want to be close to everything and stay in the city centre. We really enyoed our stay, and our two student daughters, who lives and studies in Bergen and came over for dinner, liked it so much that they would like to buy the place:) We would not hesitate to come back again.

Clean and brautiful apartment. As with fully equip kitchen utensil. People there are friendly and simple. Just a 5min walk is the fish market and Bergen town.

avatar Wonderful apartment, Great Location
Rating: (5) rate
The owner was very helpful and prompt in answering questions and giving recommendations. We really loved the apartment, the location was perfect and we were able to easily get around the Bergen city center. The apartment is walking distance to the Fish Market, shops, restaurants, the Funicular and great hiking up Mt. Floyen. We had no trouble finding the apartment and it had everything we needed and the view from the balcony was excellent. We had a really good time and just wished we could have stayed longer. We fell in love with beautiful Norway and hope to visit again someday.

After staying a week in a vacation rental in Edinburgh where the appointments were excellent - dish soap, laundry soap, tissues, hand soap provided, we went to this vacation rental in Bergen. The attic level apartment with a spiral staircase going up, up, up. No laundry soap. A clothes washer but no dryer. No hand soap in the bathroom. No dish soap in the kitchen. The dishwasher was full of filthy dishes but when the dishwasher was run, it shorted out and caused the electricity to go out. The sloped ceiling was a danger to normal height people. I guess people are expected to camp out in vacation rentals in Norway.

Close to harbour and fish market with views over harbour. Well appointed, nicely renovated top floor attic style apartment. Note three flights of stairs so you need to be fit. We stayed for three nights in unusually warm weather for May. We escaped the rain in Scotland, had three fine and warm days in Bergen then found the rain again in Germany.

avatar Great flat and great location
Rating: (5) rate
We had a lovely stay in this flat. The location can not be beat--a short walk to pretty much everything in Bergen and in a very picturesque and charming neighborhood. The flat was very clean and well provisioned. I would stay here again for sure. The only thing to note is the flat is on the top floor of the building (hence the great views), but this does mean sloping ceilings and a few stairs!

avatar Great apartment in super cute neighbourhood!
Rating: (5) rate
We had a great stay here in March and felt right at home. The apartment is well equipped, clean and cosy and has views to die for! A perfect place to stay as it's just out of the centre of Bergen, giving you a chance to be out of the touristy area, yet is still very close ( within walking distance) to all the sites and eateries. The neighbourhood has great cafes and a lovely feel. We'll be back for sure! Beware the stairs though, as the apartment is on the top floor! Well worth the hike up to enjoy the views however!

avatar Very enjoyable.

The apartment was clean and well presented. It was warm and bright and had everything we needed. The view across Bergen was great.Well located just a few minutes from the historic old town but quiet. The owner was helpful and friendly. We will certainly stay again.

Cittadina deliziosa e paesaggi incantevoli!! Bergen è di certo un'immancabile meta per chi volesse fare un giro dei fiordi. La casetta, piccola e accogliente, si trova all'ultimo piano di un palazzetto, senza ascensore, con i tetti spioventi (come in tutta la città) e ha una veduta fantastica! Siamo comunque stati in cinque comodamente La posizione è ottima: a pochi passi vi è un supermercato(veramente importante dato che mangiare al ristorante ogni giorno è proibitivo) e a molti punti di attrazione (quartiere bryggen, musei, porto, mercato del pesce, chiese, stazione della funivia...). È fornita di tutto il necessario (in molte altre case lenzuola e asciugami non sono comprese...qui si!), ben riscaldata, pulita e ordinata. Il proprietario, molto gentile e disponibile, ci ha fatto trovare in casa delle guide e delle cartine della cittá e ci ha dato tanti consigli su cosa visitare e dove mangiare. Bergen e casa e proprietario decisamente consigliatissime!!

El apartamento está muy bien, cómodo y acogedor. La situación es excelente, muy céntrico, te permite ir a pie a todas partes. El barrio es bonito y permite pasear. El supermercado está muy cerca, y el Bryggen, con el mercado de Pescados a cinco minutos andando. En el apartamento había bastantes folletos de información turística de la zona.Además, el dueño nos dio más información sobre bares, tiendas, autobuses...cercanos y recomendables. Tanto la ciudad como el apartamento son para volver y recomendar.

avatar A great central spot to stay

This apartment was comfortable. The bedrooms had blackout blinds, which made it a lot easier to sleep given the long daylight hours in the summer. The wifi was fast and worked consistently and the washer was excellent with a large drying rack to hang your clothes. The view out over the harbour was very nice and it was a short walk to the different tourist destinations in Bergen. The kitchen was also sufficient to put together a decent meal, although one larger pot for making a family sized meal of pasta would have been helpful. Overall, I'd stay here again and would recommend it to others.

As a family of five (kids ages 7, 14 and 16), we stayed here for a week. We could not have chosen a better place. The apartment is cozy and provides an awesome view of Bergen, the harbor, and even towards Mt. Floyen. We loved the location - three grocery stores, Bryggen, the path to Mt. Floyen and everything else within just a few minutes walk. The apartment had everything we needed and the helpful hints we received from Trond before our arrival were very useful. If/when we come back to Bergen, we will definitely stay here again!

Great location with nice view of Bergen. Most attractions at walking distance. Very quiet neighborhood.Very clean and comfy beds.Unable to get TV channels. Located at third floor, the stairs are a challenge with medium or large luggage.

We enjoyed our stay at the apt. The location was very good. There were 3 adults. Beds were comfortable however the bedrooms were quite small. Sitting space included a sofa which we could all fit on to view the TV. No other sitting space other than chairs at the kitchen table . Nicely equipped small kitchen. Grocery store was nearby although not on the same street .Nice view of the city and even saw fireworks one night. A short walk to the city center which from the apt was downhill. Glad you warned us about the stairs up to the apt. It was a bit of a climb. Apt was clean. Bathroom with a heated floor was nice. The old town of Bergen was fun to see and we enjoyed the museum and the history of the city.

avatar Traumhafte Sicht in zentraler Lage
Rating: (5) rate
Die Wohnung bietet eine traumhaften Blick über Bergen. Wir waren davon total begeistert! Zwischen unseren Touren haben wir uns dort und auf dem kleinen Balkon (für 2 Stühle) wunderbar erholen können. Obwohl wir zu viert angereist sind, war es in der Wohnung mit Dachschräge nicht zu eng. Die kleinen Schlafzimmer sind kuschelig und haben gemütiche Betten. Die Küchenausstattung ist gut. Nur die Duschkabine ist sehr eng. Da man 3 Etagen erklimmen muss, sollte man keine Gehprobleme haben. In unmittelbarer Nähe gibt es Supermärkte, Cafes, Restaurants, Post und Aportheke. In 3 Minuten kann man zu Fuß Bryggen erreichen. Trond ist ein sehr netter Gastgeber, der unsere Anfragen immer freundlich beantwortet hat. Insgesamt ein toller Aufenthalt. Wir würden gerne wieder kommen. .

Prior to the trip, Trond was very informative and gave clear instructions. Knowing where markets were was very helpful. As you will read, it is on the top floor and four flights of steps will get you there, but we can handle them. Ceiling is sloped with the roof, so you must be aware of your surrounding, but again, no issue. Short walk to the funicular and fishmarket, both of which we enjoyed. Kids loved the playground up top at the funicular. Norway is very expensive, and the value of this accommodation was clear. Good laundry facilities, dryer was very appreciated. Windows all open for fresh air, the weather was great. If we return to Bergen, we would absolutely stay here again.
