We stayed at Fjordside in July of 2012 and really enjoyed our stay. Wonderful and relaxing views. We traveled via bus to and from Bergen and had no issue - although it was a bit tough finding our way the first time. But we weren't familiar with public transportation, none-the-less, Rita is a fantastic host!

Wonderful place, lovely quite, appartaments number B have 70-75 mc with 2 double room, kitchen, bath. garden closed to the fjord. We went in Bergen for 2 days very closed to the Bryggen. Its cool to stay there on a little apartment, but when we returned after a long tour in norway i was so happy of Rita Ripman choice. I am so glad i met this place. Images do not give justice to the place believe me! is a little bit price high but believe me this place deserve to be tried! We took lobsters to a mini market around we got 50% of discount and with 150kr we fully equipped the kitchen that already had coffee, oil,sugar, salt and many feee stuff for the breakfast. well, streo,vhs, dvd, tv, frigo bar. I am still very happy, and i am glad i am writing this review cos i will miss that place. 2 days are just the time to relax. I had the chance to visit fantoft and we were put at 5pm and with reached the church in 20 minute. :) well done this place cos we also went to the fishj marked & aquarium this morning so...this place can perfect if u hate unpersonal hotel.
This is so fantastic to read. Warms my heart!Thank you so much!

We enjoy very much people, animals, nature, gardening, travels, being creative. During the winter I paint and make drawings. I also love editing movies, making covers etc... Although much to do, summer is the best time of year. Summer is we can expect guest's. We enjoy their company as much as they want. When we are lucky to have long time guest's, do we show them around at our favourite places. We enjoy ourselves as much as our guests do. Their excitement gives us so much pleasure.
