Lost key fee.
John Richard gave me a warm welcome, showed the room and all the facilities (bath, fire alarm system, kitchen ...). Even more important was his "tourist info" of where to go etc. And what made feel specially welcome was our general discussion of Oslo, Helsinki etc. The location is excellent and quiet. The bed was really good and wifi operated fast. Everything I needed was there!
Many thanks for a fantastic stay at your place in the center of Oslo. Tips and recommendations of what to see, secret gems and local food places have been invaluable. Every touristy attraction from Hilde's place is walking distance, did not need the Oslo city pass in 4 days. Thanks again for everything!
We met Hilda on our arrival and she was very friendly and accommodating. Her apartment is clean, spacious and extremely comfortable.
Beautiful apartment in a nice neighborhood. The memory foam bed was super comfortable. John was friendly and hospitable.
John & Hilde were excellent hosts during my brief trip to Oslo. Their apartment is lovely and located in a very central area/ walking distance to all major attractions, restaurants and nightlife. They guided me through the city map and how to make the most of my 24 hour stay, and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend this apartment and I wouldn't hesitate to come back and stay with them again.
John Richard and Hilde don't just share their apartment: they run a one-room boutique hotel. I felt warmly received and well treated. Their very nice room overlooks a park, the bathroom is clean and convenient, and they offer you a good morning coffee or tea. And, most important, the bed is gorgeous!
Real Norwegian hospitality in central Oslo. Worth every penny, I will return there next time.

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:)
