About this listing
This is my home, I love both the apartment and the location.
If you are looking for a central, yet tranquile place to stay, this is it!
I offer travelers the opportunity to stay in my apartment for their visit to Oslo when I'm out of town myself.
The building is from 1897, the apartment was refurbished in 2008.
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 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).
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.
This is my home, so please treat the apartment carefully.
No smoking inside.
Take off shoes by the door.
If you are planning on inviting other people over for a party, this must be cleared with me in advance.

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!
