My friend and I stayed at John Richard and Hilde's flat for two nights and we loved it! First of all, the place is beautiful, clean and always toasty; we had everything we needed during our short stay. They have a great bed, too. John and Hilde gave all the right recommendations in terms of restaurants, bars and attractions. Following the walks they advised us to go on, we really felt we made the most of our time in Oslo! We had some really interesting conversations with them as well and feel like we learned a lot about the Norwegian culture too. We couldn't have asked for more helpful or friendlier hosts :-)
My stay in Oslo was fantastic. Unfortunately, I was only able to stay with John Richard and Hilde for two nights but overall, it was perfect for my trip. Upon arrival, Hilde greeted my sister and I with a tour of the apartment and a map and tips of places to see while in Oslo. She and John Richard also recommended some amazing places to get a good Norwegian bite to eat (Cafe Bacchus was delicious!). The room was well equipped with things to do in Oslo and everything at hand you may need. Plus, the bed was the most comfortable I've had in months. All in all, if you're thinking of booking the airbnb with John Richard and Hilde, do it! I hope to come back and visit again soon.
The room is super cozy and the bed is super comfy. Although it is an old building, the interior is beautiful and the amenities fulfill the needs without a question. John and Hilde are very hospitable and they showed us the great things to do in Oslo! It was a pleasant stay.
Stay in Oslo
Great experience with Hilde and John Richard. We were able to get into the apartment earlier than the check-in time. Dropped our luggage, then John Richard and Hilde armed us with a map and a list of touristy things to see and a bunch of local places to experience in Oslo. Great recommendations and we got to see a whole lot more of Oslo than we thought we would have time for. We also mentioned that after our Berlin trip we would have a night in Stockholm. In the evening we came back to the apartment to a nice warm brownie cupcake and a set of instructions (with pictures and further links) on what to do on an overnight trip in Stockholm. The room was clean, plenty of fresh towels, comfy bed for tired jet lagged travelers! Had an early wake up time but the pot of coffee was ready for us. Overall such a great exprience with John Richard and Hilda - fantastic hosts, comfortable room, great recommendations.
Thank you very much to Hilde and John for this perfect inaugural stay with you in Norway, Oslo and Airb&b : thanks to the useful directions you provided before arrival, your nice and efficient welcome to make our stay as comfortable as possible upon arrival, your quiet room for us with a marvelous mattress. We look forward to coming back again!
John and Hilde were lovely, lovely hosts. They have a beautiful and tidy home in the center of town and were full of stories, smiles and suggestions on how to spend our time in Oslo. I absolutely recommend staying with them. They made us feel right at home. Thank you so much!!!
John and Hilde were incredible hosts and great friends. They were very helpful and hospitable and never hesitated to lend a helping hand. Their apartment was beautiful and wonderfully located. Our stay in Oslo was certainly improved because of their generosity and kindness. They were funny, entertaining, and provided fantastic insight and guidance when it came to our activities. I couldn't recommend them as hosts with any more vehemence. If we ever go back to Oslo (which we hope to!), we'll be looking them up for sure.

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:)
