We loved this place. A very historical building on the hill in Bergen that provided a 'real' Norwegian experience. The included morning meal was a wonderfully prepared traditional Norwegian breakfast. Each small dining table's "place card" was a flag of your country noting where you were to sit which also enabled conversation with others in dining room. The lower level... More

The good thing is, it's literally just above the mt floyen bottom station and only 5 minutes' away from the Bryggen wharfs. The bad thing is, it's above the mt. floyen bottom station. and that means a crazy steep slope to climb to get there. Not that bad if you're traveling light as you can take the stairs. But pure...

The Skansen Pensjonat was a great start to our visit to Skandinavia. We took a bus from the airport at Norway and walked up to the hotel. We had the downstairs room/suite with it's own entrance, bathroom, and little kitchen area. The host also made a great personal breakfast spread that made a great start to the morning. Having our...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Skansen Pensjonat and were not disappointed. Our hostess Jannicke was very kind and helpful. We stayed in the balcony room which had an amazing view of the city. The rooms are pretty basic with toilet and shower down the hall. Jannicke served us breakfast every morning and always had tea and cookies... More

This is a small B&B in the centre of Bergen and considering Norways prices extremely good value for money. It is a steep climb from the centre up a winding path but the views at the top make up for any inconvenience this may cause. My room was a small single with shared bathroom facilities. I was a little unsure... More

Great little budget hotel. Close to centre and an easy walk to most attractions. Situated just above the Floibanen funicular railway station. Only drawback is the fairly steep climb up about 50 metres. Don't take a taxi! They charge a fortune and ours couldn't find the hotel. Toilets and showers are shared. Breakfast is excellent and the owner is very... More

I stayed at this B and B for 2 nights in the single room. It was 450 kroner which is very reasonable for Bergen (less expensive than the hostel in town). The room was very small though felt cozy and proved a radio, desk, robe and sink. Shower and toilet was shared with showers only being on the first floor.... More

Looking for somewhere to stay in Bergen turned out to be an expensive story! But finally I found this little "Pensjonat" for only 500 NKr/ night. The room was really nice with a basin and a great view over Bergen. I simply loved it! It was easy to get there and in the mornings I went out for a walk... More

First and foremost you need to be ready for a hike up the hill. It isn't terribly bad, but you just need to understand that when you're headed back in the evening, you've got a bit of a haul. Even so, we thought it was a good option. It was much cheaper than a lot of the alternatives we considered,... More

If you think Oslo is expensive, try Bergen! I had a very difficult time finding a place with reasonable price in Bergen so I settled for this accommodation. The area itself is interesting to explore (many wooden houses from 18xx). Overall, it’s an okay stay if your priority is budget. But if you are willing to pay more, stay elsewhere.... More
