I would highly recommend Alkoven Guesthouse. I found it a really comfortable, homely and relaxing place to stay in Bergen, with great facilities and lovely rooms. It is in a peaceful location within easy walking distance of Bergen. Elisabeth is very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

We spent 4 or 5 nights in the Red Room. The room was nice and spacious, and the kitchen was well equipped. Having a kitchen was great! By preparing our own dinner, we saved a lot of money we would otherwise spend in restaurants. The location is beautiful, with a nice view on the harbor, and walking distance from the... More

Hello Ture, and thank you for your nice review. I wanted to ask you one question about your comments to the mattress, to see if I can make it better. What is the reason that you think the mattress should be changed? Was it too soft/hard or other qualities about it you think could be made better? Thanks for answering... More

We stayed in the Red Room for 3 nights in June 2014. Big room with a comfy bed, table and couch. Lovely location within easy walking distance of the town centre. Clean guesthouse with very nice hosts. The kitchen facilities were very handy for self catering.

In a beautiful street, near the centre, but quiet, Nicely furnished and decorated, comfortable. Good to be able to use the kitchen and the garden. The landlady was not at home, but left a good description and everything we needed was there.

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
