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

I have spent many nights in Bed & Breakfasts in different countries and always find it a good alternative to hotels, as the atmosphere is more personal and cosy. We chose this B&B because we thought it would be a great option on our tour through Norway. The critics were all very good. However, we cannot confirm the many positive... More

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...
