I stayed there a couple of nights last month. The whole place is spotless, even the bathroom couldn't be cleaner! I had a nice, big double room overlooking the cobbled street and the bed proved really comfortable. Not that I could use the kitchen much as I was away most of the time but it had all the necessary equipment...

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. We loved the charm and character of the place. It's a great location, clean and the owners are very friendly and helpful. She even had a collection of tourist pamphlets in multiple languages so no need to visit a tourist info centre. She recommended the rail ride up the mountain, and...

We stayed at Skiven Guesthouse for two nights. The walk from the train station to the house was short, and check in was easy. The owner was outside cleaning and saw us. She knew who we must be right away and showed us in. Our room was next to the kitchen with a nice view from the window. Decent sized...

You arrive after walking up the steep Fjellsiden (hillside) from the train station, hauling luggage in the famous Bergen rain, and your landlady ushers you right in, doesn't need a proper check-in or credit card, and you immediately know that although you're in Norway's second largest city, it's still a small town at heart. A lot of heart, much of...

Considering the price of an hotel room in Bergen, this guest house seems reasonably cheap...However, we paid 100 eur/night for 3 persons! There is a kitchen to share with 3 other rooms. You find tea, coffee, sugar etc in the kitchen. The place is very clean, the landlady is discrete but coming down to clean after the guests several times...

We found this guestroom very comfortable and convenient. Close to harbour and everything. We came back to room for lunch and break between sightseeing. Kitchen is handy to have. Bought breakfast from grocery store and used fridge to store milk, fruits, etc. Wifi strength is very good. Host is friendly. Shared bathroom is no problem, and is kept very clean....

Location and price - the key elements for any accommodations are met by Skiven. Located in one of the oldest parts of Bergen and close to everything. Only minutes to train or bus station and the main harbor area. Great base for touring Bergen. Guesthouse owners were very pleasant, hospitable and helpful - starting with original emails. The room was...

Excellent location having walked from the ferry with lots of luggage. Train station was 5 minutes away and we were easily able to catch an early morning train. Also walked into town which only took a few minutes. Guesthouse owners were very pleasant, hospitable and helpful. The room was a good size to accomodate us (couple and one child) and...

The building was very old but close to the station. The room was clean. The interior had a sense of beauty. There was a kitchen for common use. The rate was reasonable. The owner was a friendly, kind and beautiful woman. I enjoyed talking with the owner and other visitors at night. One couple of visitors from France served us...

We spent three nights in this Hotel during last December. The room was pretty spacious and properly clean, the position very favourable to get to the city center by foot in a couple of minutes. After taking Flybusse from the Airport, once you get off at the stop they mention you, it takes not more than 5 minutes to reach...

“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.
