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.... More

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... More

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... More

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
