You will find more modern places in Bergen, but this place has charm and location. The building is quite old but in relative good shape, its like coming home to an old relative. Its just a short walk up from the funicule station. The breakfast was very good with way more food then we could eat.

We, my 2 teen aged kids (boy & girl) had the loft family room. Even though we had a bit of a time finding it due to crazy side of Bergen streets, it was wonderful. Be ready to have a quaint experience. Circular stairs (of course) up to the 3rd floor. The facilities were on the 2nd floor and the... More

This little gem is quite central to Bergen, only a ten minute walk from the train station and maybe 20 mins to the Hurtigruten. Other attractions are only minutes away, like Bryggen and the Funicular as well as bars and restaurants. You can do a walking tour of Bergen in half a day so nothing is really far anyway I... More

A bit worn down, but clean and nice. Very nice breakfast and excellent service. I recommend it especially for quite and fit people, there is up in the hill and the walls are thin.Perfect if you travel alone.

I had a single room here: cosy furnishings, neat and clean. Showers were good. The breakfast was the highlight of my stay (there is a board where you write down what time you would like breakfast). There was a good selection of different breads, cheeses and ham, and also a boiled egg if you wanted one. It was all delicious.... More

Our host made this stay! She even offered to carry our baggage up the flight of stairs! This was a cozy little place with lots of warmth and character. We stayed here for three days between a Hurtigruten cruise and a trip by train to Oslo. Every morning, our host fed us the most marvelous Norwegian style breakfast with gjetost... More

We stayed here 3 nights and we found the location fantastic and the view from the room fantastic. The house is located up a very steep hill so I would not recommend it if you have issues with stairs. The breakfast was also very good. The only downside was on our last day we had to go early so we... More

The Skansen Pensjonat was highly recommended to us, and so we were delighted to find availability on the day we were to be in Bergen. I had a rental car - a small wagon - and I could not navigate the most direct route to the pension. I followed the suggested route for larger vehicles, and found my way with... More
