Description

The space

This is an opportunity to stay in a very calm part of the city center area of Oslo, which is dominated by architecture from the late 1800's. There are many cozy cafés and unique shopping in the area, but not many hotels.
One of the main tourist attractions in Oslo, the Frogner/Vigeland park, is just a 5-10 minutes walk from the apartment, and the bus out to Bygdøy with several populare museums (the Viking ship museum, Bygdøy folk museum, the Kontiki museum and others) stops 200 meters from the apartment.

Interaction with guests

I'm happy to give info about places to see, how to get there, restaurants and shopping. Feel free to send me messages in advance.

The neighbourhood

The apartment is located in an area named Frogner. Frogner is West in the city center, and historically the more "posh" part of the center.
This is a nice area to take a coffee-to-go and walk the streets through nice architecture and green spots.
The cinnamon rolls at the bakery Samson 50 meters from the apartment building has been voted the best cinnamon rolls of Oslo - and I agree!
There are several grocery stores within 5 minutes walking from the apartment, and a 24-hour open gas station with a small selection of groceries across the road (groceries at gas stations are about twice the price of what you pay at the grocery stores).

Getting around

There are several great spots within walking distance, such as
- the Frogner park, with the Vigeland sculpture park in the center (5-10 min)
- the royal palace (15-20 min)
- Aker brygge, with the harbour and the City hall (15 min)
- Bygdøy (20-25 min)
and many great restaurants and cafés within 10 min

The bus stop Frogner kirke is just 200 meters from the apartment. No need to check the schedual - there's usually a bus coming every 3 minute. For Sundays and after 11 pm you should check the schedual (
The bus out to the museums on Bygdøy also stops here, about every 10 minutes.
Between 1 am and 5 am there is one bus per hour.

Walking 150 meters the other way, you'll find the tram stop Elisenberg. The tram will take you to the entrance of the Vigeland park in just 2-3 minutes, or up to Majorstuen and the metro in 5 minutes. The tram comes every 10 minutes on weekdays, every 15 minutes on Saturdays and every 20 minutes on Sundays.

There is also a taxi stop just around the corner.

There is free parking in the streets around the apartment building - just make sure to park legally (e.g. not too close to an intersection or on a parking spot reserved for persons with reduced mobility). It's usually not too difficult to find a free spot, but if you arrive around 5-6 pm on a weekday it might be a bit more challenging.

Hey Having myself lived in Oslo for 3,5 yrs, I can guarantee that the the appartment is located in one of the nicest and most well-located areas in Oslo. It takes 10 minutes to walk to the tourist attraction; the Frgner Garden and 10 minuttes to walk to the royal garden. The area is characterized by a very Nice buildings are there is a bakery which opens at 9.oo in the weekends literally one minute away. The rooms are OK spacious, and everything is in good shape. Beate her self is very helpful in any instance whether it be flexibility in reaching the appartment or Things you cant find in the Kitchen (but it is there). I have already stayed in the apartment several times, I the only thing I can put a finger on is that it is located in the ground floor, one can hear people comming home from a night out during the weeks, if you sleep in the dinning room. However apart from that I can only give my best best recommendations for Beate's appartment. Wkr. Søren

Frogner is a great neighborhood--clean, safe, near public transport, with a number of good restaurants nearby. It is easy walking distance to Nobel Peace Museum, Castle, Concert Hall, National Theater, fast train to and from airport (National Theater Station), and many other things. It is also a short walk from beautiful Frogner and Vigeland parks.

This is a lovely place to stay in Oslo !

I'm an easy-going person, who loves to travel around the world. I also enjoy traveling around in Norway, especially hiking in the mountains - Norwegian mountains and woods are raw, clean and, sometimes, challenging. As I am a country girl living in the big city, I need my days hiking to revive myself once in a while. I wish that those who visit Norway, take their time to experience some of our nature!
