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... More

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... More

The guesthouse is in a good location. Short walk from train or bus station as well as the town center. Directions on the website were easy to follow. Please note: Bergen is quite hilly, so be prepared! Our room was clean and very basic. A room for two is two single beds pushed together (which seems to be the norm).... More

We enjoyed our three night stay at Skivens Guesthus. It was only about a five minute walk from the train station to the quiet neighborhood and it was also convenient walk to the harbor, fiish market and most of the sights. Alf and Elizabeth live upstairs over four lovely rooms sharing two toilets, one with a shower. The place was... More

Skiven Guesthouse was a charming place to stay for our one night in Bergen (recommended by Rick Steves Scandinavia). It is situated on a cobblestone street and within an easy walk to the harbor. The room was impeccably clean and had a nice city view through the window. Shared WC was large and it was convenient to also have a... More

The GH is very pleasant and nice, clean and excellent location. The owners are helpful and very welcoming. Only drawback is the stairs to climb to reach the GH, not too easy for elderly people. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Thanks.

Accommodations in Bergen are expensive! We found this affordable recommendation in one of Rick Steves' books and decided to give it a shot. We don't need fancy - just clean and safe. Skiven Guesthouse is in a great location - just a five minute walk from the train station and the Fish Market area. This is the first time we... More

This is a charming little guesthouse with several rooms, two shared bathrooms, and a shared kitchen. It's located in a neighborhood of old Bergen homes on a cobbled street, and the location is convenient to many sights (though of course Bergen is small and quite walkable). Our room has a lovely view of the city. The walk from the train... More
