Newly refurbished top floor apartment situated in the very heart of Bergen, just behind the famous "Bryggen" (the city quays/harbourside), in the street called Steinkjellergaten. Very central, as it is merely 200 meters walk from the apartment to Bryggen quays and to the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel and about 300 meters to the Bergen Fishmarket. The Bergen Fishmarket is in the middle of the city centre, and is one of the major tourist spots, and here you will find the tourist office as well.
As you can imagine, it is therefore walking distance from the apartment in Steinkjellergaten to most sights, shops, bars and restaurants. The nearest s...oup cafè is about 20 meters from the entrance door! The nearest grocery shop and corner shops (open till late) is about 50 meters away. There are several very nice barista places (cafè) in the neighborhood.
The apartment has a balcony with rooftop view over the city centre including the harbour, with ships/boats coming in and out. Imagine relaxing on the balcony in the evening sipping to a glass of red wine?
WiFi: the apartment has got free wireless HighSpeed internet connection for my guests! Speed is 20MBPS download and 5MBPS upload. Fast enough for most people :-) No hotel can provide same speed...
The apartment has got 2 Bedrooms. NEW! Bedroom #1 has got 2 single beds of width 80cm (can be put together to one double bed width 160cm). Bedroom #2 has got a 140cm wide double bed. The living room has got a sofabed (pull-out-bed) that sleeps 2.
Maximum people would then be 6.
The apartment has got TV with a couple of foreign channels (english spoken), and a little radio is also present (no iPod docking though...).
Kitchen with amenities including stove, fridge/freezer, water kettle, microwave oven, Nespresso coffemaker (bring coffecapsules or buy at the Nespresso store in Strandgaten of Bergen). Clothes washingmachine in the bathroom. Shower and WC. Bathroom floor has got heating cables. The general standard of the apartment would be rated high.
Parking: no parking immediately outside the house, use street parking or P-house.
There is a shuttlebus service to the Bergen Airport running from the fishmarket or outside Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Bryggen (2 mins walk), otherwise taxis running from Bryggen (or from your doorstep).
Still something you wonder about? Send me a message, and I will be at your service :-)Read more

The owner was very helpful and prompt in answering questions and giving recommendations. We really loved the apartment, the location was perfect and we were able to easily get around the Bergen city center. The apartment is walking distance to the Fish Market, shops, restaurants, the Funicular and great hiking up Mt. Floyen. We had no trouble finding the apartment and it had everything we needed and the view from the balcony was excellent. We had a really good time and just wished we could have stayed longer. We fell in love with beautiful Norway and hope to visit again someday.
Close to harbour and fish market with views over harbour. Well appointed, nicely renovated top floor attic style apartment. Note three flights of stairs so you need to be fit. We stayed for three nights in unusually warm weather for May. We escaped the rain in Scotland, had three fine and warm days in Bergen then found the rain again in Germany.
We had a lovely stay in this flat. The location can not be beat--a short walk to pretty much everything in Bergen and in a very picturesque and charming neighborhood. The flat was very clean and well provisioned. I would stay here again for sure. The only thing to note is the flat is on the top floor of the building (hence the great views), but this does mean sloping ceilings and a few stairs!

We had a great stay here in March and felt right at home. The apartment is well equipped, clean and cosy and has views to die for! A perfect place to stay as it's just out of the centre of Bergen, giving you a chance to be out of the touristy area, yet is still very close ( within walking distance) to all the sites and eateries. The neighbourhood has great cafes and a lovely feel. We'll be back for sure! Beware the stairs though, as the apartment is on the top floor! Well worth the hike up to enjoy the views however!

El apartamento está muy bien, cómodo y acogedor. La situación es excelente, muy céntrico, te permite ir a pie a todas partes.
El barrio es bonito y permite pasear. El supermercado está muy cerca, y el Bryggen, con el mercado de Pescados a cinco minutos andando.
En el apartamento había bastantes folletos de información turística de la zona.Además, el dueño nos dio más información sobre bares, tiendas, autobuses...cercanos y recomendables.
Tanto la ciudad como el apartamento son para volver y recomendar.
