The Space

Upgraded since the flat was first listed: Two real beds (120), hifi and wirless internet

3-room flat close to Akerselva and the Munch Museum in a historic red brick building (email hidden) backyard. It's location with everything within walking distance makes it a perfect starting point for exploring Oslo. The central station and the main streets of Oslo are less than 10 minutes away by foot.

Of course you do not need to bring linen or towels as I would be very happy to help you with this. Except for the world famous Munch Museum, you can enjoy the Botanical Garden and the nearby galleries and artist run spaces. Even closer you´ll find the bars with the cheapest beer in all of Oslo! My neighbors are not very found of partysounds, but just three minutes away you´ll have a great selection of places to go out at Grønland, the city centre being ten minutes away, or maybe just a walk along the river? The choice is yours!

Guest Access

The flat is white with black furniture and historic wall panels from the 1880s. While you cook for your friends they can sit close to you by the classic Norwegian "klaff-bord" from the 18th century that once stood in our family farm house up north. Or you bring cheap quality take away from the pakistani, indian or sushi next door, surf online or just watch TV and relax.

Wireless internet and dishwasher, washing machine and dryer in the basement. Accommodates 2 - 5 (Two real beds (120 cm in each bed room), maddrass (120 cm) and a couch in the living room). Flatscreen TV (41 channels; CNN, BBC World News, MTV, Eurosport ++).

Interaction with Guests

As an art historian who love the city and its clubs I would be happy to give you update recommendations! Also, I spend a lot of my time travelling so do not hesitate to contact me as the whole flat might be available to you.

The Neighborhood

Except for the world famous Munch Museum, you can enjoy the Botanical Garden and the nearby galleries and artist run spaces. Even closer you´ll find the bars with the cheapest beer in all of Oslo!

The choice is yours!

There are great grocery shops, restaurants and bars / cafes just around the corner. Loads of cheap quality take away from the pakistani, indian or sushi next door

Getting around

It's location with everything within walking distance makes it a perfect starting point for exploring Oslo. The central station and the main streets of Oslo are less than 10 minutes away by foot. The bus station (if you arrive from Gardermoen or Rygge airport) is 5 minutes away from the flat by foot. Bus 37 and 60 stops down the street three minutes away, and all metro lines stop at Grønland five minutes walk to the plaza at Grønland torg. The Opera and the new financial district of Oslo by the sea is also within walking distance.

Other Things to Note

As silent and central it gets in Oslo!

  • I haven't seen a host this accommodating and understanding when people travel overseas. As always she has been the best host for my colleagues who stayed there and I will rent it in the near future as well.

    Keep up the good hospitality.

    Best regards,
    Sundar

  • My colleague Michael's review who stayed at this place. "Maria’s Apartment is a great find in the city and has everything you need to be comfortable. We are in a vibrant corner of the city, plenty of restaurants and grocery shops. Near from the bus station and Metro station. Very silent area. Maria was a superb host and waited to meet us after late hours. We had a great time staying there".

  • Maria's apartment is in a great location, an easy walk to the train and bus stations and to local public transit. The immigrant neighborhood is a bit scruffier than many other parts of Oslo, but we really enjoyed it, and it felt safe. There are many places to eat nearby, and prices are a bit more reasonable than in other parts of the city. Also, there are plenty of markets and stores with great fresh produce. We didn't get to meet Maria since she was out of town, but she left clear instructions and it was easy to get the key and find the apartment. She responded quickly to our emailed questions. The double bed was smaller than we're used to, and while it's okay for smaller people, larger people would find it a tight squeeze.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Maria's place, perfect and central location (few minutes away from the train and bus stations), small but nice apartment, really good communication with Maria and reasonable price.

    Recommended!

  • Went for a weekend break to Oslo in January. The flat was ideally located 10 minutes walk from downtown in a multicultural neighbourhood with a great choice of good, relatively inexpensive food right nearby. The flat had everything we needed and Maria was quick to help us with suggestions of food, restaurants, etc. The flat is nicely furnished with a well-equipped kitchen, TV, internet and endless hot water!

  • Me and three friends spent 3 nights the week before Christmas in Maria's apartment. The place was very clean and had all of the facilities you need for a city break, regardless of whether you are on a budget or not. The apartment is situated just 5 minutes from the main bus terminal and only around 10 minutes from some Olso's fantastic attractions. First impressions of the area were perceived to be a little rough especially with some of the characters around the streets during the evening, however we did not come to any trouble and all of the locals were very polite and helpful. I would certainly recommend Maria's place, and would certainly stay again in the future.

  • Our stay at Marias flat last weekend (4-6 Nov) was excellent! We had checked all over oslo for hotels, but due to the cupfinal there were no rooms available, so Maria was kind of a saviour for us :)
    It was a real quiet neighbourhood though it was so central. The flat was in a building from 1800 something with families as neighbours so no party noise when you are tired and just wanna sleep.
    I can highly recommend a stay at Maria's flat. And she was helpful to us even we didn't see her before the day we left :)
