About this listing
Cheaper than a hotel – way more comfortable and private.
The room is located in a high standard flat just a short walk from the new business area in Oslo, Bjørvika, where several bigger companies have their main offices (DNB, Gjensidige, PWC, Visma, NSB, Statoil Fuel and Retail and many more). Bjørvika arises as the newest and most innovative area for business, art and culture in Oslo. The area is characterized by modern architecture. Many attractions are in the walking distance from the apartment (the Barcode, the Munch museum, the main street Karl Johan, the new Opera and Ballet and many more). The flat is located less than 5 minutes away from the main bus station and a 10 min walk from the central station (very convenient if you are taking the shuttle bus or trains from the airports). Great view of the Oslo skyline from the room.

The flat is in a well isolated building with central heating, therefore the rooms in my flat are always warm and comfortable, even on the coldest winter days. The bathroom has a heated floor (good in cold Norway ;)
There is one double bed in the room. In addition I can put in a single sleeping bed making it suitable for couples with a child or three close friends traveling together. Keep in mind that this option will be a bit tight, but it's a cheap alternative for shorter stays.

Jan was a great host. The apartment was small but very close to central station, which is what mattered to us. If I return to Oslo, I would stay here again.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We didn't get chance to meet Jan on the days we traveled in Oslo. A little issue on this airbnb host is the room that we got was not the same as we booked via airbnb and we had to share the toilet with his flatmate. The room is functioned with kitchen which can save us some money by cooking ourselves. In my opinion, this room is an alternative choice for the traveler who needs to make a different experience in a costly city as Oslo (We basically leave the room early in the morning and return back to the room after 7 pm. so we can't give that much information on this experience)
Thanks for your feedback. I indeed had a problem with the guestroom you booked, so I gave you my private room instead. While the room you originally rented only had a bed and a desk, your new room was considerably bigger and had a private balcony, a flatscreen TV and a private kitchen, so I'm a little surprised that you describe this upgrade as an issue. All rooms are rented with shared bathroom. I hope you had a good stay :)
Nous ne sommes restés qu'une nuit à l'appartement de Jan mais cela a été parfait. Le logement est propre et bien situé (très proche de la gare routière). Le centre ville est facilement accessible à pied. Jan était là pour nous accueillir et nous conseiller pour le peu de temps suite nous passions à Oslo. Nous recommandons Jan comme hôte.
Staying at Jan's place was just perfect for my trip. I had only one night - and arrived by bus, left by train... his place couldn't have been more conveniently located. He is super organized, and made all happen for getting access etc., super simple. He is an experienced host, and it shows. Would recommend without any hesitation.
Great, modern flat in perfect conditions, very clean. Much recommended. The host Jan and his friend eduardo are very helpful and attentive.
We had a great stay with Jan. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The neighborhood is central to the central train station and was perfect for us since we had only a short stay and wanted to spend minimal time commuting to and from the airport. Jan was very prompt in his replies and gave us lots of local information about Oslo. This is a great, affordable choice in a very expensive city.
