About 15 minute walk from the train station which was good since we arrived in a practical downpour about 9pm! Get clear directions on how to get to the guesthouse since there are several turns and streets. Bergen can be confusing upon arrival. Bear in mind two rooms share a bathroom which is fine and the upstairs rooms (one of... More

We stayed there for 3 nights in the basement in june. Since the sun sets only around midnight it turned out to be actually better because there isn't a lot of light in the night which helped our kids sleep better. There is a small park and a sand play area right next to the B&B which was awesome for... More

This review is of the penthouse apartment in particular, which we rented in May 2016 for 5 nights. We communicated with Yvonne many times via email and her emails to us prior to booking and after were very helpful and answered in detail all of our many questions. She even sent her daughter to pick us up when our train... More

My husband and I stayed in the Carriage House, separate from the main guesthouse. It's located on the Bryggen side, away from the high traffic tourist areas with chain hotels. I recommend it for anyone who wants to get a feel for how the locals live. Within walking distance to the Floibanen, restaurants, and the water. We felt like we... More

We spent three nights in the Carbiner House Apartment run by the To Sostre Guesthouse, which is located above a sculptor's gallery at Ovregaten 49. The apartment had distinct rooms for the kitchen (with full size fridge, dishwasher, stove and oven), living area (with couch, dining table and TV), bedroom, and a tiny bathroom that felt like a closet. While... More

This is the kind of accommodation I really like, but isn't for everyone, particularly if you like impersonal chain hotels. Note that it is neither a hotel, nor a B&B, so 'guesthouse' is the correct description, and is like being in a shared house with the use of communal rooms / facilities. Yvonne is a charming hostess and was very... More

The place is lovely and the reservation process fast and effective. I really appreciate being met at the station. Unfortunately and unexpectedly, for my entire 3 night stay the building was covered in scaffolding and netting as the exterior was scraped and hosed down in preparation to be painted. The noise and dust was unpleasant; one day the poor workers... More

We spent 5 wonderful nights in the penthouse apartment. When I saw the pictures of the view from the apartment I assumed the picture had been photoshopped, it was so beautiful. The apartment did not disappoint, it was exactly as pictured. It was the nicest accommodation we've ever stayed in. It was very modern, clean, spacious and well located. Yvonne... More

This is completely charming in the old cobbled streets area of Bergen, close to the centre and local shops and supermarkets. The rooms are beautifully furnished and comfortable, the views charming, and there is a kitchen and dining room for self-catering. The hosts are very welcoming and there is a lovely stylish atmosphere which is relaxed at the same time.... More

I stayed here overnight, separating the legs of the Norway in a Nutshell trip. Yvonne, our hostess, was incredibly welcoming, and the home was so cute, beautifully appointed, and perfectly located. Its central location is near shops and restaurants and just 10-minutes' walk to the train station. Walking in, I felt like I was at a good friend's home who... More
