My wife & I recently stayed in the centre of Oslo in a one-bedroom apartment. The location was perfect for everything, transport, seaside, metro, trains, shops, restaurants, and the start and finish of the Oslo marathon which we both ran ! The apartment was exceptionally well maintained, the instructions and directions were very easily facilitated by the landlord, and there were more than sufficient instructions on how everything operated and suggestions on what to see and do in Oslo. We had a great time, and it was so nice to return to a well maintained apartment. Thoroughly recommended. We would love to return sometime, and we will love to stay in the apartment again. Thanks to the landlord and his assistant Jean who had arranged to meet us on arrival in the apartment.
We really enjoyed staying here. The appartment is small, bright and well equiped. Ideal for a couple wanting to visit the city. A view out over waterways as well as other appartment blocks. Excellent location in a new dockside development where everything is to hand. One can take a bus, tram or ferry within 10 minutes walk. There is a big supermarket within 5 minutes walk or a small minimarket around the corner. For those of us with deep pockets there is no shortage of restaurants in the area. Highly recommended!
The apartment is set on the side of the Thief Hotel with views over the back of the harbour and is in a great position to explore Aker Brygge and the rest of Oslo.
Comfy and large bed, decent sized balcony and fully fitted kitchen make this apartment a much better choice than the hotels in the area and cheaper too. As anyone planning to come to Oslo from the UK will know, Norway is expensive so the kitchen came in very useful, there are three supermarkets within easy walking distance as well as a wine/beer shop. When we were there the kitchen cupboards were full of various foods left by previous visitors, they were less full when we left. If you find a bag of what looks like porridge there, it's not porridge.
If you want to eat out there are many restaurants within a couple of minutes walk but be aware they are chain restaurants such as TGI Fridays and Jamie's Italian and they get very busy.
The best bar in the area is the Beer Palace as long as you don't mind your face doing an impression of Munch's The Scream every time you buy a round.
All in all a lovely place to stay in a lovely city, I heartily recommend it.
The apartment has all you need, it's clean, quiet, nicely furnished and well equipped - and the balcony overlooking the canal is lovely to chill out on with a glass of wine! Location is fantastic with good access to key attractions, lots of great cafes and restaurants and a lovely walk along the waterfront, plus a small local beach! Jean was also very helpful. Thanks for a brilliant stay!
The apartment is perfect for two. It's compact but had everything we needed for our four night stay. It's in a great location in a lively neighborhood. We appreciated the advance communication and helpful suggestions for restaurants, sightseeing, and transportation. Thanks Nils!
