Renting out the extra bedroom in our bright and cozy apartment, suitable for 1-2 guests. Clean bed linen and towels are provided.
The apartment is located in the eastern part of town, with immediate access to buses, trams and the metro.
Welcome to our charming apartment in central Oslo!
The apartment is located in the north eastern parts of Oslo. Getting around the city is easy, since there is a variety of public communication available in a walking distance of only 2-7 minutes from the front door. Including the airport express bus to and from Gardermoen, which stops on the corner of the building. If you arrive by train it is easy to get to the apartment by public transportation (only 3 stops away on the underground). I'm afraid parking is difficult around here though, but there is a parking garage about 5 minutes from here that other guests have used.
Grünerløkka, which is known for it's cafés, restaurants, bars and small shops and boutiques, is only a 10 minute walk away. There are several parks and hidden gems in the area, so feel free to ask for tips! If you prefer to walk, you can get to the city centre from the apartment in about 30 minutes by foot. Right behind the apartment you will find the oldest allotment garden in Oslo. The guest room is located on this side of the apartment, so the bedroom is nice and quiet.
We love to cook, so you should find everything you need in the kitchen. You'll get your own shelf in the fridge, and are free to use our oils and spices! We will be renovating the kitchen in May 2017, so if you visit us after that the kitchen will look quite different from the current pictures.
The guest room has a nice size, and the bed is 120x200 cm (about 47x79 inches). It can be a bit small for two persons, but cosy if you're friends. You will also find a desk, an armchair, two chairs and a small table, so there are room to both relax and work. And if you want to enjoy your meals in private, that is also a possibillity. There is both a wardrobe and a dresser where you should have plenty of room for your stuff!
You will find complimentary tea, coffee, cocoa and such, as well as an electric kettle in your room, so you don't have to get dressed to make your morning coffee. There will also be maps and tourist brochures available to you. And if you need to do some laundry you will find detergents and fabric softener as well. In the wardrobe you will find both a drying rack, ironing board, iron and a hair dryer. In the bathroom you will have cabinet space for yourself, and you will find shower gel, shampoo and conditioner on its own shelf in the shower.
You will have access to:
- Free Wifi
- Cabel TV
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Hair dryer
- Shampoo, soap and conditioner
- Coffe and tea
- Towels and bed linens
Respect and communication goes a long way!
Here are the basics:
- In my building there is a rule to keep things quiet from 23:00 to 08:00, and we try to follow this out of respect for the neighbours.
- In Norway it's common to take the shoes off when inside, so shoes go off in the hallway.
- Please help me keep my home tidy.
- No smoking inside the apartment.
- Please ask before bringing guests to the apartment.
- Animals are not accepted.
- Please clean up in the kitchen after use.
- I recycle! So please help me keep that up when you visit.
- Remember to lock the door to the apartment! And try not to loose the keys. There will be a lost key fee.
- Please feel at home and enjoy your stay!
I am happy to help you with what you need, so don't be afraid to ask! Whether you want tips to where to go or how the TV works. I will usually be home during your stay, so I am easy to get a hold of while you are here. My boyfriend lives with me, and he will be happy to help you out as well if you need anything. He will be at work during the weekdays, while you usually will find me at home. We enjoy meeting new people, but if you'd prefer to be left alone, we will have no problem respecting your privacy.
I am a person interested in all sorts of culture. When I visit new places I love to learn about the history, food, art and people. My main interests in life are music, movies, theater and food. I like being a hostess, and try to deliver the little extra that makes people feel welcomed. I enjoy having all sorts of different people come stay with me, from all over the world. I hope you come and visit me some day!
