“Very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2011

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.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2009

We choosed this guesthouse for two reasons: the possibility of sleeping in a real norwegian wooden house and the very high prices of hotels in Bergen. This guesthouse is slightly outside the city center (about 1 km from the Fish Market), on the top of a mild hill, with a nice view on the harbour. It's only about 15 minutes walk from the Fish Market but it can be a lot if you've been out the whole day visiting museams and taking pictures. Moreover most of the pubs and cheap restaurants are located beyond the Fish Market (around Olav Kyrres Gate), with additional 5-10 minutes walk. We booked the Red Room at the price of 750 NOK per day. The room is at the ground floor, is large enough and shares a bathroom with two other rooms. You also need to walk through a tiny shared kitchen to reach the bathroom. So we suffered the lack of a private bathroom but for a two-days stay it was not a big trouble. The bed was confortable and the room clean. No internet connection is available. There's no breakfast included in the price. Overall we had a nice stay. In Bergen hotels are very expensive but you can get good central hotels for about 1200 NOK per double room per day, (big) breakfast included, if you book with much advance (2-3 months), and this would be a good deal considering the price of a breakfast (30 NOK for coffee, 30 NOK for an orange juice, 50 NOK or more for a croissant) in a bar. Cheers!

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
