I stayed in Alkoven guesthouse in july 2010. during my norway trip with my mother.
I must say it was one of the nicest accommodations we stayed at.
We got the family room for 650NOK per night which is so cheap!
The room is huge, clean and from our winow we could see the harbour.
The house is so charming we felt like we live in Bergen.
There is two toilets and one shower you share with one more room on the floor- but it never was a problem.
Also there is a kitchen.
The location great. the bed is great, what more could you ask for?!
We really enjoyed our stay and this will be the lace to go when we are again in Bergen.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Reasonable prices close to the city of Bergen, only 10 minutes walk to Bryggen and Fisketorget. Alkoven - rent a room, is an accomodation for people looking for something different from hotels. In our family house, where we lives upstairs, we rent out 4 rooms during summer season and 2 through the winter. Red and Green rooms are located at groundfloor, while Kvisten and Loftet is in the back and upstairs from our private back garden. The rooms are most suitable for singles or couples, but Red room can also take one extra person. When staying in our house you get a good chance to meet and get to know other travellers as you share common areas as kitchen, bath and toilet. This is an old charming wooden house in traditional style placed in one of Bergen's old historical neighbourhoods, Skuteviken. ... more less
