My family of four (children 22 and 17) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kristian and Marthine's apartment in Oslo. Kristian describes the apartment as "funky", but I would not use that term. It is a very nice apartment. It is spacious, with a large kitchen, dining room and living room. The appliances are all very modern. The second bedroom is small, with only room for a double bed, but it opens on the courtyard, and is therefore much quieter than the front bedroom, which is on the street. There was street noise, but that is to be expected in an apartment in the city. The apartment is very near the city center, and transportation around the city was easy, with three tram lines and one bus line passing within a block.
My only suggestion would be for a "handbook" for guests explaining how to use the stove and oven and the dishwasher. We were able to figure out how they worked, but it took us some time. Written instructions would have helped. A handbook left in the apartment could also list where to shop for food, and places of interest in the neighborhood. Kristian responded quickly to our emails asking questions, but such emails would be unnecessary if a handbook was in the apartment upon arrival.
We would definitely recommend Kristian and Marthine's apartment to any families looking for a centrally located apartment from which to explore Oslo.
There was great communication from when we booked. A very comfortable stay in a location close to trams and the bus into the city. Plenty of supermarkets and places to eat within the immediate area and play parks for children. Thanks again Kristian and Marthine.
We had a great stay at Grun's Funky Space. Lots of comfortable spaces, great kitchen and utensils, and the bathroom was super too (it has been renovated but they have kept enough of the old to really make the space work functionally but you still feel the buildings history). Everything just works really well and the way it is furnished and designed is very Oslo cool. The area is close to nice local brews, good food shops, top restaurants (Kolonihagen and Brot were our favs) and nice parks. A quick tram into the city every 10 mins. It is a great place to stay.
Die Wohnung hat uns sehr gut gefallen! Sie ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet.
Es ist alles vorhanden in der Wohnung was man täglich benötigt!
In der Nähe sind zahlreiche Supermärkte und kleine Geschäfte. Grünerlokka ist nicht weit entfernt von Oslo. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wieder dort hinfahren!!!
