There were so many great things about this room and home - location, views, amenities and the hosts. Located across the street from Bryggen, it was easy to walk anywhere, including the train station, fish market, Lille Lungegårdsvannet, Nordnes (old town), the Fløibanen Funicular, St. Mary's Church, Bergenhus Fortress and more. The view from the front windows is spectacucular, overlooking Bryggen and the harbor.
The hosts, Jessica and Daniel, were wonderful. Jessica was very helpful in suggesting things to do and places to eat during my stay. While they do live in the home, I felt like I had the house to myself whenever I was home. They also provide coffee, bread and jams for breakfast...which given the cost of dining out in Norway is a huge bonus.
Things to be aware of:
The hosts do rent another room in the home, which was occupied during my stay but we rarely crossed paths so it was never an issue.
The stairs into the apartment are quite steep and narrow. This was not a problem as I was traveling fairly light (and Jessica was helpful in getting my bag into the apartment) but could be a potential issue for those who have challenges with mobility.
I would happily stay here again and would recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing stay in a very convenient location in Bergen.
