Julie was a very nice host. We planned to arrived late as we were taking the train from Oslo and she had no problem with that, staying there to show us the apartment and answer our questions. Knowing that we would arrive late, she even left the fridge stocked so we could have some late dinner. She kept in touch during our stay for anything we needed. The apartment is really nice. The view of the balcony is breathtaking! Everything was very clean and it was very well equipped. I travelled with my husband and baby boy (nearly 1 year old), and Julie supplied us with a baby bed and some toys for him. The only thing I could point is that there are too many stairs! If you travel with a lot of luggage this may be an issue for you. There is a market 2 blocks away and the bus stop to the city center was just 1 more block away. We didn't go hiking but for people interested, the trail to the mount Ulriken is just minutes away from the apartment. We definitely recommend the apartment and Julie as host!
This is such a lovely and cozy place, situated in a beautiful green area, but very well connected to public transport. Julie is a wonderful host, very well organised, pro-active (she even bought some groceries for us knowing that the shops would be closed on our arrival day due to a public holiday) and she speaks perfect English. Everything was very clean, the apartment is really spacious and the view indeed breathtaking. Whether you intend to explore the centre of Bergen or rather the mountains for hiking, the location caters very well for both needs.
We had a very nice welcome by Julie. She took the time to show us her appartment and gave us all the information about the appartmenent, garbage collections and so on. Julie also prepared a document showing the most important places in the area. Julie appartment is lovely and very confortable. The view on Bergen from the balcony is great. We had a great time there.
I did not personally stay in the flat, the rent was for my family (6 persons, aged from 50 to 60). What I can tell is that they really appreciated their stay in Bergen in this well-equipped, clean and comfortable flat. They could only feel home rapidly. The view over Bergen’s fjord on the balcony is just incredible! Julie kindly left some sleeping masks for those who had trouble to sleep during those long summer days, and left plenty of information and places to go in the neighborhood. The starting point to Ulriken is just few minutes away. Transportation to/from city center is extremely easy with bus (every 5-10min), and the bus stop is located only 5min away walking. A place to stay in Bergen! Thank you for everything Julie!
It was our first time using airbnb. Did not sure how safe it was. However Julie's hospitality made us give this website five stars. Julie's apartment was high above our expectations. She left us all the info about the neighborhood, apartment and the city. I think she should be awarded a fund from the Ministry of Tourism :) Apartment is only 10 min to the city. We were even able to walk in 20 min. The view from the balcony was amazing. Instead of hanging out in the bars, we wanted to enjoy the beatiful view from the balcony. She left us a perfectly clean and tidy apartment. We felt like home...
