A lovely home, Hilde and John Richard were super friendly and helpful, gave us a lot of good suggestions for sights to see that we would have otherwise missed!
Wonderful stay although brief with John Richard & Hilde. They were extremely helpful on aiding our time in Oslo and maximising our feel for the city. Great location, walk to everything, lovely historic building, lovely apartment and extremely comfortable bed and room. Thanks
The room we have stayed in are very comfortable. We love the way how natural lights shine into the room and that was one of the reasons why we picked this apt.
John and Hilde are very friendly and they gave us suggestions on where to go in or around Oslo. We were pleased on how efficient John is (the information he gave is wonderful!) when we posted him questions about ideal dates and day trips out from Oslo.
Thumbs up for the hosts and the apartment.
Our stay at John & Hilde's was very nice, they've been really friendly and helpful.
The flat is welcoming and well equipped and the room was cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable.
Also the area is very convenient, just by the city centre but quiet as the same time and with several supermarkets, bars and restaurants at walking distance.
Would definitely recommend it.
We had a lovely time staying in Hilde and John's beautiful appartment. It is located right in the centre, close to the train station, shops, restaurants & ideally situated for exploring Oslo.
Hilde and John are both lovely and they happily told us what to visit while in Oslo and where to eat (there is nice little Vietnamese restaurant near their flat , ask them about it!). We definitively recommend this place.
I stayed at John & Hildes place for three days. The place is perfectly located, in the heart of Oslo city. Everything is only 5 minutes of walk away. The apartment is very beautiful, clean and with a cozy atmosphere. You’ll get a very comfortable bed, I wish my bed at home was as good as this. John & Hilde are kindly, helpful and warm hearted. I even got some excellent advices about places to go in the city of Oslo.
I fully recommend this place and I will definitely return here for my next visit to Oslo.
Five out of five stars from me.
All the best.
The flat is beautiful and perfectly located. Hilde and John Richard were incredibly welcoming and helpful, so my friend and I made the best out of our short 24 hours in Oslo. I will definitely return here for my next visit to Oslo.
John and Hilde were super friendly and engaged us with interesting conversations about life and culture in Norway, and gave suggestions on what to do or see. They were also very accommodating of our arrival and departure schedule, as well as for picking up a forgotten coat. Would recommend for anyone (or two) needing a place to stay in Oslo.
Me and my colleague stayed one night at John & Hilde's beautiful apartment to explore Oslo quickly after a conference elsewhere in Norway. We could not have made a better choice! Their home is perfect and they are the friendliest people ever. And the tempur bed - I wish I had that at home! We were located in the heart of Oslo and with their help, were able to see so much in just one day. An extra tip: listen to what they say about restaurants and follow their advice. You won't go wrong. Thank you for helping us enjoy Oslo, John and Hilde!
John and Hilde were our first experience with Airbnb. And they made it perfect! Thank you so much! The Appartement is great, the room in which we were staying was more than we could hope for (especially the matress - a dream).
As for John and Hilde themselves, they were great in all aspects, from giving us great recommendations for places to visit to showing us the greatest burger place in Europe :-).
We highly recommend the place if you are planning a visit to Oslo
