Located in the nicest area in Bergen, lovely old house, nicely decorated, with a fantastic view on the city and the harbor, and a very helpful and accomodating host. Nice breakfast, cookies for tea, lovely living room with a view, just the right place to visit Bergen! And an incredible good value for Norway! Just go there, and nowhere else!!!!

The B&B is in a great location -- near the funicular and old town. It is up the hill and the taxi did not drive us up to the door. We blame the taxi driver for not wanting to drive the small roads. The hike was not bad -- especially after riding a train for the day. We had the... More

For our two nights in Bergen we wanted a centrally located self catering place with character, and Skansen perfectly fitted the bill. We took the small appartement as it has own shower room (with underfloor heating😀) and also a small kitchenette with fridge, coffee making facilities (inc filter machine) and stove. Breakfast was provided upstairs, and Skansen is in easy... More

I was late arriving but welcomed with a smile. This is a comfortable, relaxed place with character (in a nice way!) and great value for Bergen. You get a good continental spread for breakfast, plus a boiled egg to order. Tea, coffee and biscuits available in a little lounge area 24/7 and heaps of info for travellers. I had the... More

We were looking for B&B accommodation in Bergen with its own bathroom and we couldn't find many options. I saw the previous reviews re Skansen Pensjonat and booked the one bedroom self-contained apartment. Whilst it would be wrong to describe it as luxurious it was well equipped if you wanted to self-cater (we didn't), it was warm via underfloor heating... More

Definitely recommend this spot if you're looking for somewhere relatively affordable and in walking distance to everything you'd want to see and do in Norway. I stayed in a lovely bedroom with a really nice view of the city. All of the rooms with private bathrooms were taken, but the place is small enough that sharing wasn't such an issue.... More

The house was lovely and the owner was very welcoming. There were many thoughtful touches, such as umbrellas provided and tea making facilities left in the living room. As a I left early, she even made me a takeaway breakfast. The views were great and it was only a short walk to everywhere.

Very well run and welcoming Bed & Breakfast in the heart of Bergen. Walking distance everywhere. Awesome views (book the "Balcony Room"). The host is wonderful and sees to that you meet whatever weather Bergen has in store for you with a hearty breakfast.

We stayed here recently this October with our daughter in the family apartment. The house is beautifully situated if you don't have a car as bars and restaurants are an easy five minute stroll away. The apartment was spacious enough and very private and we enjoyed Jannike's beautiful breakfasts in the morning with pretty views over the old harbor and... More

The title of the review may be a bold claim as I have only spent two days in Bergen. The hotel/ hostel is located in a quaint old brick building perched on the side of a hill overlooking the city. The views are breathtaking (for the money) and if you can nab rooms 5 (which also has a balcony) or... More
