The Space

What makes this cozy colorful geust room even more special is that is located in a beutiful design apartment with a very central location. My beautiful guest room is also my office space when I do not rent it out. As you can see I am a graphic designer loving my bold prints, lovely colors and soft pillows. The room is towards the backyard so it will be quiet. When I away I can offer to rent in my whole great looking apartment. The apartment has been in several design magazines. I have one of Norways most popular interior blogs so yes, my apartment looks fab!

Bloggers are more than welcome!

LOCATION: A very central location on the east side of town at Grøndland/Tøyen. Only 2 stops away on the tube from the central station, if you feel like walking it will take you 15 min. If you travel in to Oslo on the Airshuttle Bus you will arrive on Oslo BusCentral, this is very close to my place, and if you have a suitcase it will take you 10 min to walk to my space. A lot of nice places to explore in the neigbourhood, Munch Museum. Botanical Garden, the main street at Grandland has many cool places to go out and grab a bite to eat.

ROOM CONTAINS:
Size: 12m2
Bed: One single bed (w 80cm)
Big empty closet to hang your clothes in and a nice office desk.
A cosy relaxing chair

THE APARTMENT CONTAINS:
Nice lovly balcony with morning sun.
Kitchen with fridge, freezer, oven and all the kitchen stuff you would need like toaster, kettle etc
Bathroom with shower and washing machine.
Nice and bright livingroom with comy sofa, tv, cable and big dining room table.
I recommend the room for only one person, but I do have an extra fold out bed in the loft if you are two friends staying. It would be ok to sleep in for a day or two.

You will get your own key, and during weekdays I will be at work most of the day, but more than happy to be your personal oslo guide if you would like that if I am I not busy. I do believe staying with other people and traveling this way is a great way to meet new people and see a different culture. Please contact me if you are interested. Hope to hear from you soon.

I only accept people with a profile with picture and info about themselves.

Check in is flexible, but during weekdays it will be after 18 o'clock since I am working in the daytime.

NOTE: No smoking inside and no shoes inside.

  • We had a wonderful experience staying at Melissa's apartment! The location is super convenient (a 15 minute walk to the train station, 15 minutes to the Grünerløkka area, 20 minutes to the Opera House), the apartment is beautifully arranged and decorated, and Melissa was a great host taking the time to make recommendations and provide guidance on the must see of Oslo.
    I highly recommend it!

  • Beautiful flat near the centre of Oslo (couple of minutes walking and you're there). Had a big room with a very comfortable bed and there was kitchen I could use everyday and Melissa was a very friendly host, always asking if I needed something and telling me whats worth seeing in Oslo. I stayed 5 days. The only bad thing was that, because Melissa traveled a lot lately and wasnt at home much, the floor wasnt super clean.
    All in all it was a wonderful experience! Thank you Melissa!

  • The apartment is amazing: well decorated, clean and quite centrally located. While staying there it was a hard to decide should I stay in this wonderful flat all day long or visit the city. Unfortunately, I was not able to meet Melissa but the communication we had through e-mails went smoothly.

  • Great location and designer flat. Perfect area to start your exploration around Oslo, which isn't a large city but does pack a tons of things to see in a small area. I'd stay here again if I was in Oslo.

  • PERFECT! Melissa and her wonderful apartment made me realize the world out there is incredible and full of incredible people. Perfect hostess and a great apartment. The location was great and her insights were spot on. I will be back and I hope to catch up with Melissa and make Oslo a permanent vacation destination.

  • I felt really at home at Melissa's flat. Even if i was there just For shower and to sleep, it was in a good location, near to the centre and with everything you need at home. She was really helpful about indicating good restaurants and places. I didn't like what she and her friend (both Norwegian) think about Italian man before to know me...but it was a very nice meeting. I recommend this apartment. Remember there is not elevator (lift).

  • Melissa's flat was the perfect place to stay, though I only stayed one night, it is suitable for even a couple days stay. Melissa was a great host who was even nice enough to show me to a local restaurant. The neighborhood is easily accessible from the city center by either walking or transit. Melissa patiently and thoroughly explained any needed directions and very good with communication. Would highly recommend her place!

  • The apartment was fantastic and ideally located close to the centre and public transport. Also Melissa was a great host. It was really good for me as the room also had a desk to work because i actually flew in for business. It was much better to stay in her beautifully decorated apartment with all necessary amenities than to stay in a hotel. If i am to return i will definitely arrange to stay again.

About
A creative girl from Oslo, 33 years old. By trade I am a graphic designer, worked a lot in print media, but the later years I have gone all digital. At the moment I am head of communication and PR for a big interior shop here in Oslo. And I also have one of Norways most visited modern interior blogs called IDEAS TO STEAL. It is in English, so (website hidden) and you will find it. Love to travel, see new places, and stay at beautiful and cozy hotels and homes. And I think airbnb is such a great way to explore the world. I love my city and would be more than happy to share tips on where to go and what to do here in town. Or maybe you would like to join me out with my friends?
