Jan seems to be a professional host. The communication with him is very efficient and smooth. The place is perfect for a short stay in Oslo, it provides everything you need. Even though it is pretty small, it is warm and cosy. The location is easily accessible from the train station. Shopping from the supermarket is easy. We are happy that we chose Jan's place for the last night in our trip.

Fica perto da Opera.
É espaçoso e limpo
Jan was a good and welcoming host. The apartment was perfect for us and in a great location. I would definitely come back here again if I am in Oslo again.
Everything was just as expected. Jan is obviously very experienced with hosting and it shows in his care and attention to detail with the place. Everything was super clean, tidy, organized. He is very gracious and accommodating. We arrived much earlier than expected and he made sure he was readily available so that we could easily drop off our luggage at the apartment before check in. There were even chocolates on the beds when we arrived, which was a lovely gesture!
Personally, I felt this apartment is very cozy. It is perfect for 2 people; works fine for 3 people. I stayed here with two friends (3 in total), and we were very comfortable. Perk: It also has a great balcony!! We loved the balcony, and it had a great view of the city. The beds were very comfy and the comforter was very warm.
The location is a 15 minute walk from the main train station, 10 minute walk from the bus station. One of the other reviewers said the street/area aren't very pretty/charming, and they were right. But with that said, it's an easy walk from the center, and there is an awesome coffee shop right around the corner. It is also literally directly above a grocery store, which is great if you want to cook.
Overall, I had a great experience with Jan. My friends and I actually stayed at two of his properties during our time in Norway, and had a great experience with both. I would definitely return to stay with Jan again.
The apartment is very nice, well located, and Jan left some fruits and coffee for us. Although it was a short stay we had a good time and enjoyed our time in Oslo. Thanks Jan!
We had a lovely stay at Jan's apartments in Oslo. We stayed one night in a smaller apartment moving to a two bedroom one the next night (when it was available) for three nights. Jan met us both times to make sure everything was okay for us. It was very clean and ee had everything we needed and having the supermarket downstairs was great. Being close to the station was good but we walked everywhere, even up to Vigeland Park. I would definitely stay there again. Thank you Jan.
