Stayed here for 4 nights and was very happy with everything. The prices are reasonable, the room was a decent size and very clean. It was handy to have a sink in the room. The bathroom was shared but didn't have to wait to use it. It's also got a nice kitchen guests can use. Coffee and tea are provided....

Owners were very warm and friendly. Our room was clean and had a sink, though the bathroom was a shared one. But throughout our stay, we never had to queue to use it. Our room location was the first one right beside the main entrance, with the windows directly facing the main street, so privacy was an issue - since...

This is a lovely guesthouse. Elisabeth and Alf were very welcoming and our room was spotless and comfortable. We appreciated having the well equipped kitchen and did not find sharing the bathroom a problem. It is an easy walk to the heart of Bergen and we would definitely stay here again.

The guesthouse was easy to find, just about 5-10 minute walk from the bus and train station and about 10-15 minute walk to the harbor/fish market. We arrived late and we're quickly greeted by the friendly owner. She showed us our room, the kitchen and bathroom. There is a bathroom with toilet and shower and another with just a toliet....

The hosts were very courteous and helpful, and accommodated us in leaving our bags after check-out while we continued our last day of touring. The room was very clean, though basic. Good toilet and shower facilities, also very clean. Great location a short walk from the old town center of Bergen. The guesthouse is situated on a cobblestone paved drive...

Well equipped kitchen with oven and lots of other kitchen gear. Room was spotlessly clean and we had the room next to the bathroom and toilet but therefore had great view over a part of Bergen. Beds were super comfy with great comforters. Except from when you like to sleep on your belly, because the matrasses are quite soft. Table...

We enjoyed a lot our four days spent, at the end of May, in this very pleasant and friendly guesthouse. It is very well situated, short walk from the train - bus station and city centre. The room was large and nicely furnished, with chairs and a table. There was one big shared bathroom, one toilet and a kitchen. Everything...

We could tell that the host took great pride in keeping the place clean. This has resulted in a spotless guesthouse. I have never stayed in a cleaner place than this. The decoration was tasteful too. Combined with the cleanliness, this made the stay a pleasant one. The location of the guesthouse was within a 5 minute walking distance to...

“You don't really get to choose a room and I'm not sure if this is a choice in a guesthouse, but the good thing about being next to the shared toilet and bathroom is it's easy to tell when they are empty without having to open the door and check every five minutes.”
  • Spotlessly shared bathroom!
  • Cozy to a T.
  • Room feels like home, and has a view.
