About this listing
A cozy room in a beautiful flat in Oslo's trendy Grünerløkka, near restaurants and bars, and well connected by public transportation to popular tourist attractions and other fun and interesting parts of the city.
The 2-bedroom flat is located in the West-facing point of a "Flat iron" building, with a spacious living room designed in the minimalist "Scandinavian" style.
The spare bedroom that guests will stay in is located just off the kitchen and sleeps 2 on a comfortable bed that folds out of the wall.
All flats have access to the large shared roof terrace at the top of the building, from which we have a view of the hills around the city, downtown Oslo and the Oslo fjord. Summer on the roof is an especial delight!
Guests will have their own key for easy access in and out of the building.
There is wifi in the flat and a variety of chargers and universal adapters to keep you plugged in.
All bedding and bath requirements are available, including use of the hair dryer. Washing machine and soap are also available for use.
I have a fully stocked kitchen including dish washing machine, and use of the kitchen is available at all times.
Interaction with guests
I am at work during the week but am usually around during the evenings and weekends.
I am a huge fan of eating out so can recommend places to eat in different parts of the city to suit any taste or budget. Oslo/Norway travel guides and language books are also available, and I can give my own biased opinions on best things to see or do!
As is normal in all Scandinavian flats, shoes are removed after entering the flat.
The flat is nonsmoking, so it is requested that all guests access the roof patio, or head outside, to smoke.
I am also up fairly early for work, so reasonable amounts of quiet is preferred during the week.
In the event that keys are lost, the entire building's key system must be replaced. Therefore, guests will be charged 2500NOK in the event of lost keys.

I am an American living and working in Norway as an IT consultant in Project Management.
I grew up in Singapore, then moved back to San Francisco as a teenager before heading off to university in St. Louis, Missouri, where I studied performing arts. A few years after competing my Bachelors I went back to school and ended up with a Masters in International Finance and an MBA.
When I'm not at work I spend most of my time at the CrossFit gym, although I love a good night out on the town, out to dinner, with friends. It seems I am always on the go - so many countries to visit, so little time.
