I was in the Green room (it overlooks in the courtyard). The room has a double bed,clean linen and towels, electric heater (I used it... More

Alkoven guest house is the perfect place where you can enjoy the Bergen! The wonderful view from the window to the sea we will stay long in the memory if you stay Red room. The guest house has a good geographic location. Good place to stay for a longer period of time because it is self-catering. It allows you to... More

Sunny and perfectly situated in charming Skuteviken. An exceptional view to the sea and the sunset. The nice family, the cats, the good taste art and interior makes a generous and relaxed atmosphere. The ship flutes you can hear underlines your travel, at the same time as the environment shows you an authentic daily life.

I was very lucky to be able to stay in the room at the top of the house "Loftet" as it was equipped with a small kitchenette and it's own w/c. I was by myself but the bed can easily be converted to a double. The room itself is very spacious and is spotlessly clean and there is no shortage... More

We visited Bergen to attend a concert and needed a room for a couple of days. It was nearly impossible to get a room in Bergen because of the festival ("Festspillene i Bergen") that was going on the same week. Alkoven guesthouse had one room left, the smallest one "“Kvisten”". It's a tiny room with a nice bed, a chair... More

We choosed this guesthouse for two reasons: the possibility of sleeping in a real norwegian wooden house and the very high prices of hotels in Bergen. This guesthouse is slightly outside the city center (about 1 km from the Fish Market), on the top of a mild hill, with a nice view on the harbour. It's only about 15 minutes... More
