About Nordnes apartment:
We are a Norwegian family renting out parts of our house for short and long term stay in Bergen. The house is located at Nordnes, a resident area in the city center (the old city) with only a few minutes to walk to the fish marked, Bryggen World Heritage Site, museums and the Hurtigruten Line. We have rented out rooms for tourists for c. 4 years and are pleased to welcome guests from all over the world. Ground floor is part of a 125 years old and traditional Bergen house. My family lives in the house our self, on the floors above ground floor, and our rooms are clearly separated.
Nordnes apartment is not luxurious, but covers most basic needs. It is suitable for tourists who want to live very central, not so expensive, in a charming and quiet living area in the old part of Bergen.
Towels, bed linen, TV is included. We don't serve breakfast, but you can make your meals in the kitchen, and it is 2 supermarkets only 2 min walk away. We can also offer you wireless internet for free, but it may be very slow in ground floor.
We will do the cleaning then you leave. This is included in the rent. But during your stay, it is expected that you do the cleaning yourself.

Thank you for your response! We have now upgraded the apartment, painted it, decorated it with retro furniture in a Scandinavian mid-century style, we have installed new lights and heating and much better wifi, so the apartment now gives a different impression. Also, you no longer share bath and kitchen with other guests, it is for your use only. Best regards, Bård.

"Great price; comfortable rooms; easy walk to main sites in Bergen"
We were only there two nights, but really enjoyed our stay. We cooked in the kitchen and it had everything we needed. We shared the kitchen and the bathroom with another room, but never had any issues. Loved the location and easy walking distance to the sights.
