The space

A 37 m2 Studio Apartment located in Sandviken. Just a short walk from Bergens famous Bryggen and historically one of the first urban areas developed in Bergen. The neighborhood is at the bottom of the Fløyen mountain and is renowned for its white traditional wooden houses.

The apartment is newly renovated with a rustic interior. Karsten (who calls the apartment home) comes from a creative background something which has led to numerous do-it-yourself design and interior solutions.

The apartment used to be a lefse (Thin pastry served folded and spread with butter and other foods) bakery a century ago.

Ideally suited for couples and small families visiting Bergen.

This was an awesome location where you get a lovely neighborhood feel. Lots of cool alleyways and street art nearby and only a 15 minute walk to the main downtown area. Check in was easy (Karsten's mom helped us out and she was very sweet). Everything was great except it smelled like smoke quite a bit and unfortunately I'm really sensitive to that. The smell was so strong that our pajamas smelled like an ashtray when we left. Other than that everything was perfect. If you're not sensitive to smoke I'd highly recommend this spot.

Karsten's apartment was slightly different from how it was pictured. Some of the furniture has been changed and it's a little more bare than pictured but still comfortable. His mother was lovely. She gave us our keys and showed us around the apartment. She also gave us recommendations for places to go in the area. Some of the kitchenware was a bit dusty, which gave us the impression that people had not been there for a while. The location is great though. Close to the train station and in a lovely neighborhood.

Very nice studio apartment, close to the city center. Small but curated with nice furniture. Karsten provided us with a child cot for our baby: we did not met him, but his mother was very helpful. Nice stay.

The appartment has a very good potential and could be very nice in a retro style and well placed but too dirty and needed to be aired and cleaned before our arrival. Karsten is nice and explained us well how to come and meet him.

We stayed on Bergen for three days and had a great time. Karsten is a great host and the apartment has everything you need (kitchen, bathroom, comfy furniture). Bergen is a small city which means everything is within walking distance and so the apartment is perfectly placed. If I were to go again, I would definitely pick this place!
