Great location! Very comfortable!
Our family of 6 adults had a wonderful stay. 2 bedrooms and 2 roll-away beds we very comfortable. The boys put a roll-away bed in each living room, so we had 4 separate sleeping rooms. Very centrally located. Washer/dryer was a nice touch. Highly recommend!
My group of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was large and comfortable, and stylishly decorated. It is an easy walk to the central part of Bergen. John was communicative and check in was a breeze. Would definitely recommend!
We found the property with the help of a taxi from the airport. But once we managed up the 2 flights of stairs with our bulky luggage we found a quaint apartment with a spacious living area and large bedrooms. The apartment was walking distance to all the things you would want to see in Bergen and close to all cafe's and bars. Would recommend to other travellers. Although there was no guest book which told you the details for rubbish removal or the location of the wi fi password etc. Also no complimentary milk or coffee supplied. Would stay here again though if ever in Bergen. Thanks John
We enjoyed our stay in this jewel! Beautifully appointed home, spacious and clean.
Great location and comfortable stay!
Great location, easy walk to wharf area and all the downtown activities/sights. Lots of restaurants and groceries nearby.
Apartment was clean and beds were comfortable. Sound system with ceiling speakers in several rooms was nice when we were relaxing at night.
Good location and space, but a disappointing experience
Communication with the owner, John, was courteous and promising. The apartment itself is well located and spacious, although more worn and tired than the owner photos indicate.
Despite direct communication with John, and his daughter, Linni, just a couple of days prior to our scheduled arrival, promised personal meeting was not delivered but we were given instructions on how to access the keys. Further, upon arrival, we were exceptionally disappointed to find the apartment had not been cleaned or prepared for our stay, with large bags of putrid rubbish stacked in the kitchen, along with dirty crockery in the kitchen sink, dirty linen in the bedrooms and bathroom, and a full ashtray on the balcony.
Desperate, and expensive, communication with both John and Linni, the former in Spain and the latter “not in Bergen”, resulted in John taking charge and hastily arranging emergency cleaning; however, this also required us to vacate the apartment and frantically find some way to fill in our time while this took place. John and Linni were apologetic, and John did promise further communication with us regarding a gesture of compensation and goodwill given our less-than-expected start to our stay, but this did not fully alleviate the frustration we experienced.
Despite the “cleaning” of the apartment, dirty dishes were still left in the kitchen sink, dirty linen left in the bathroom and the full ashtray remained on the balcony.
Adding to our frustration, without anyone (as promised) to walk us through the apartment, the use of features of the apartment was problematic. Specifically, we were unable to fully master the heating of the apartment, and we also experienced further angst when the power cut out (as a result of their faulty hair dryer) and we had to search for (and ultimately found) the power board and reset the tripped safety switch.
As an act of good faith, we communicated directly with John outlining the points raised here, for his consideration and action before we submitted this review. However, at the time of submitting this review, we have yet to see any conclusion from that communication.
Big and modern apartment in city center. 2 living rooms, 2 bedrooms, bathroom / toilet and big kitchen. High standard with all facilities. Location is close to Johanneskirken and Bergen Cinema. 3 minutes walk to Torvalmenningen. "Everything" is close by.
