Modern and charming penthouse with private terrace in Sandviken, amazing view. Quiet area just a 10-15 walk to the fish market and city centre. Some of the most popular hikes are in immediate proximity. 4G wifi, netflix, HBO, and Geneva sound.
Bjorn's place was great!! We wish we could have stayed longer. It had everything we needed, and was very comfortable. It's a short walk to town, which we loved since you follow the water just about the whole way. Bjorn also recommended the best hiking spot that we explored multiple times. It was the best part of our trip! Thank you!!!
Bjorn made us feel extremely welcome and was super easy going as well as helpful with some great suggestions for going out in Bergen (he suggested a local restaurant called Dr. Wiesner's that was one of our favorite parts of our Bergen trip). The apartment was impeccably clean, tidy, full of light (despite the rainy days typical of Bergen weather) and cozy. We were unable to use the balcony b/c of rain, but really enjoyed waking up to the great view regardless. Located in a great residential district, it was a relieving step away from all the touristy centers of Bergen. A quiet, safe neighborhood with a grocery store conveniently around the corner and a taxi stand a couple blocks away. I would especially recommend it if you are planning on cooking meals at home during your stay. The only drawback was that the closest restaurant was about a ten minute walk away (though the walk is a nice one), but of course the positive is that the neighborhood is relaxed and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay!
Bjørn's apartment is in a perfect location, close to the city centre but also convenient for heading for the hills. We walked up Mt Fløyen, then did the Vidden hike to Mt Ulriken where we got the cable car back down - a fantastic day's walking. The view from the balcony is stunning, the ever changing light on the water is mesmerising and the sunsets... wow! We bought a fish from the fishmarket and barbecued it on the balcony. Bjørn was a great host, we arrived later than expected and he was very relaxed about it. He was easy to communicate with and gave us good information. I'd love to stay here again if I return to Bergen.
