Really enjoyed our stay at this B&B, which was perfectly located for exploring Bergen. Skansen is located just up the hill from the Bryggen, fish market and funicular station - close to the main sites but elevated enough to be lovely and peaceful. Comfortable beds, simple but tasty breakfast (tea/coffee, orange juice, bread basket, selection of cheeses and cold meats,... More

I stayed here for the first time nearly 20 years ago when they had first opened. I made my fourth visit (I think) this week. It is still the most comfortable, relaxed, easy-going and value-for-money B&B in the beautiful city of Oslo. I was so happy to be back and I look forward to returning. Highly recommended.

Of the 5 hotels we stayed in during our trip to Norway, this was the cheapest, and we knew there would be shared toilet and shower facilities - so we were a little apprehensive. No need! We stayed one night in an "ordinary" room, and one night in the balcony room, for 200NK extra -- well worth it. The room... More

Skansen Pensjonat is located at an ideal location, right near downtown Bergen with great views of the city. The room was simple and clean with large windows and lots of light. The cost includes a delicious breakfast and the staff is very helpful.

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
