Very gracious host, even though my train was delayed, causing me to arrive after midnight. Lovely apartment.
The apartment is addressed besides a park, so it is very quiet in night. It's clean and very close to the OSLO S, the central station. John is a wonderful host, kindly, nice, and easy to talk with. He recommended us a wonderful restaurant and we had a best dinner during our trip. Recommend the apartment to everyone!
Charlie and I had a wonderful time at John Ricard and Hilde's apartment in Oslo. He was an excellent host who was gracious and interesting to talk with - especially about politics! The apartment was located close to many interesting sites within walking distance. He gave us great suggestions on places to see and good restaurants. The bed was very comfortable, showers great and coffe strong! Thanks so much for the enjoyable stay!
John Richard was extremely welcoming and very friendly. He gave us some good tips on where to visit in Oslo and even treated us to a glass of Moet before we headed out for dinner. The flat was in a good location and was clean and tidy. Thank you for a great stay!
It's been a splendid stay. John & Hilde were excellent hosts: warm and close. I felt at home there and they gave me useful information for my stay. Conpletely recommended. Thank you.
Great hosts! and the place is beautiful. Highly recommend staying here. Wish we would have spent more than one day here.

About the Host, John Richard And Hilde
We are a couple in our 40`s who love traveling, people and good food. We have family in USA, and travel there as often as we can. Oslo is an amazing city that combines both nature and urban features. It is a pleasure to share our experiences with you.
We are very happy to list our apartment on Airbnb and excited to meet new people. For us, it is important to provide a safe and comfortable rental in the heart of the city where guests can explore a bit more than just the tourist sites. We hope to welcome you to our home very soon:)
