I really enjoyed my stay at Solveig Rongved's guesthouse. I stayed in the single room downstairs with a well-equipped little kitchenette (though I only used it for coffee brewing). The dcoration is somewaht quirky with lots of local Norwegian items. The location is fantastic, near the Bergenhus park (Bergenhus festning) with a convenient shortcut to the old Bryggen wharf. The bust stop is a few metres away and the main station within 5 minutes bus drive.
It is not the most convenient for the Hurtigruten pier, you'll have to take a taxi unless you are willing to do 30-45 minutes walk with heavy luggage.
The room had a bathroom with shower.
Solveig was on hand with trip advice and a map.
