Our stay at Hilde's and John's place was great. It felt like we were staying at a friend's place :) they are very welcoming and friendly and gave us helpful suggestions of things to see and do in Oslo. The apartment is clean and quiet and the location is very central.
John et Hilde ont été de supers hôtes, accueillants et d'une grande aide lorsque nous avions des difficultés. Ils se sont montrés d'une grande disponibilité pour toute question ou information. Ils nous ont parlé de leur pays avec passion et nous recommandons cette chambre à tout le monde. De plus, l'appartement est vraiment proche de tous les lieux à visiter à Oslo. Ainsi il ne nécessite pas obligatoirement de prendre les transports en commun. Loger chez Hilde et John a été au final un moyen de découvrir Oslo de la meilleure façon pour nous.
En résumé, merci à eux car un magnifique séjour avec eux.

Staying at John and Hilde's was amazing!
Such helpful and kind people!
Wouldn't have been the same trip without their tips and help.
Hands down the best Airbnb experience I've ever had. If John Richard and Hilde aren't the model representation of what Airbnb is supposed to be, then I don't know what else to say.
John Richard and Hilde are simply the most friendly, accommodating, personable, and thoughtful Airbnb hosts you'd find anywhere. The room was pristine, along with the rest of their entire apartment. They went to great lengths to make sure I had a pleasurable stay, including recommendations for an awesome walking tour and even went over logistics like fire safety. I ended my stay with great conversation, learning about each other as we shared stories. Without a doubt this is the place to stay when visiting Oslo.
As first-timers with Airbnb, we were dazzled by John and Hilde.
If we had to chose a word, it would be "perfect".
The flat is as pictured on the photos, luminous, cozy.
John and Hilde were so sweet to us, gave us the best advice on what to see in Oslo, where to eat or have a nice time out at night. They had the kindness to print it out for us too.
The flat is really central and almost next to everything (15mn max) - very handy when you want to discover the city by foot.
Definitely the place to go when visiting Oslo.
Very good appartement,very clean and very modern. Appartement at 5 minutes of the central station. John and Hilde are very nice and make all for you for a good weeekend
This is a beautiful apartment in a great neighborhood—and Hilde made us feel so welcome! She provided everything we needed, and we were so comfortable. It's a quick walk from Oslo S, and also not far from Grünerløkka, which was our favorite neighborhood in which to hang out. Hilde & John Richard's room is a perfect place to base your stay in Oslo, and we're so happy we got a chance to stay here. You should, too!

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:)
