Just stayed here Friday through Sunday, though we booked through Booking.com which mentions "complimentary wifi" for the rooms. NOT TRUE. I was able to connect, but the signal was just so-so and the speed was so terrible nothing loaded. Could not use the entirety of my stay, which caused me A LOT of work problems. EVEN WORSE: our first day... More

The apartment includes a kitchenette including a stove, basin and fridge. The apartment has a worn out feel and is need of a refurbishment. The room is of average size. In the bathroom the soap dispenser is too far from the shower to be used. You can head footsteps from the floor above and noise from the beer garden of... More

We were in Bergen for two nights and identified this place as a really good value. Proper hotels and restaurant meals are very expensive and we wanted to save some money. The kitchenette allowed us to cook dinner in one night (great supermarket around the corner), which was a huge plus. By London standards its a 2*, with limited toiletries,... More

Very cosy & comfortable apartments just three minutes from the center of Bergen. Equipment is quite basic, but there is a useful kitchenette, fridge... and a wonderful Jacobs Bar & Kjokken restaurant downstairs, with fabulous kitchen, great natural wines and friendly atomspehere. A good place to stay & enjoy the best of Bergen!

Simple accommodations in the center of Bergen, in a quiet area. Apartment was set up with small refrigerator and stove top to prepare your own food. Fantastic restaurant on the ground floor. Clean and a value.

The apartments are over a pub but don't let that put you off as there was very little noise from the bar at night. You check in over the pub counter and they'll give you two plastic keys. Mind these as these will get you in to the accommodation after midnight if you stay out that long. Our apartment had... More

Recently returned from a 11 days Norway trip covering Oslo, Bergen, Flam and Tromso. Because we travelled from Oslo to Bergen, then to Flam and back to Bergen, we actually stayed there on 2 seperate nightes at 2 different rooms. Would have book other hotels but the rest were fully booked and only Jacobs Apartments was available. Room was sparse... More

After hurriedly making our booking, we read some of the negative reviews from TripAdvisor members, and so we arrived with low expectations. In fact, our experience was positive: the staff were helpful and welcoming, the apartment was clean and comfortable, the associated restaurant was excellent, and the location was ideal for exploring central Bergen. It is true that the kitchen... More

Several of us (3) stayed in the apartment-style room to save some money for a multi-night stay in Bergen. The apartment had a room with 2 single beds, with a couch in front of the tv that pulled out into a bed. The couch bed had a middle support bar underneath the mattress that will result in you booking an... More
