Me and my boyfriend (both in twenties) had a very pleasant stay in the 'heart of oslo'! That didn't suprise us at all, the pictures give a very reliable and inviting insight in the interior of the appartment. I love the retro style and it is fully equiped, which is very convenient, especially regarding kitchenware etc. It is perfectly located near one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Olso, Grünerløkka. Nice views from the windows, nice beds and blankets...it all adds to a nice stay! Our contact with Peter before and during our stay was also pleasantly, to mention a reminder and advise about where to go. We really recommend the apartment for a visit to Norway's capital, don't hesitate to discover the heart of Oslo!
Petter was very helpful and flexible! The apartment was nice, clean and the location is excellent. City center is within walking distance and connection to public transport is great as well. Definitely recommended if you want to visit Oslo for a couple of days and see as much as possible.
Petters place was perfect for our stay in Oslo. It is super easy to find (we walked there from the station) and is in a great location right between the city centre and the Grunerlokka (where there are lots of great places to eat and drink as well as plenty of second hand/independent shops). The apartment was lovely and warm despite the freezing weather outside and up on the roof you get great views over the oslofjord. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a central base for exploring the city.
Petter's place was perfect for exploring Oslo. A short bus ride to the center (or a walk if it's nice) and a short walk to Grunerlokka. Spacious and clean and the rooftop terrace is really cool. He wasn't able to meet us, but his mother and niece were there to greet us and help us settle in. Petter has lot's of information on the area at the apartment (bars, restaurants, etc.) and overall it was a great stay.
Petter was a wonderful host, providing great references for getting the local flavor/experience. The apartment was exactly as represented, perfect location for exploring Oslo on foot. The trek with luggage from the bus stop looks challenging at first but easily doable..
Petter met us at the central station with the keys to the apartment and gave us great directions on how to get to his place (just a quick bus ride and then just a few steps from the bus stop).
The location of the apartment is great (there is a little grocery store across the street and plenty of places to eat nearby). The view is spectacular...both from the actual apartment and the rooftop. The roof view is incredible. We had coffee up on the rooftop in the mornings and even got to see a fireworks show over downtown one night.
One thing about location -- If you don't take the bus from downtown it can be a good hike up to the apartment because of a slight hill. Totally worth it though for the wonderful apartment and the view!
I stayed in Petter's apartment for five days, and was extremely pleased with it. It was clean and well-furnished, with a comfortable bed, newly renovated bathroom, and easy elevator access. The kitchen was supplied with all the tools and appliances for cooking, which was valuable to me given how expensive Oslo is. It was unseasonably free of rain during my stay, so I made frequent use of the rooftop patio for breakfast: the view of the city and harbour is second to none, with birds chirping all around and the sun shining overhead.
The neighbourhood around the apartment is friendly and safe, with a small convenience and food shop open fairly late across the street and another a block a way, in addition to two grocery stores and a laundromat a short walk away. There is a gorgeous cemetery a stone's throw away, and the breathtaking Old Aker church just up the road. The location is a 10-minute walk away from both Grunnerloka (the "hipster" district) and central Oslo, or 15 minutes from the harbour. Just be prepared to walk uphill when you head back!
Petter himself was kind and helpful, and he gave me a tour of Oslo from the rooftop, pointing out attractions I should visit. I would definitely recommend his apartment for your stay in this gorgeous city.
A beautiful apartment in an awesome apartment building. Plenty of room, and everything you need for your stay. Roof terrace is lovely, you can see the fjord from it and there are picnic tables for you to eat at up there.
Petter picked us up from Sentral station as our flight got in late at night, he gave us a mini tour on the drive to the apartment. And gave us a few tips before he left.
We walked everyday from the apartment to Sentral station, took about 20 mins and was a nice way to see more parts of Oslo.
Peter has been a kind host, always available and present when we needed him. He took time to explain what to see in Oslo and to make us feel at home, in his appartment. The appartment is great, nice and clean, confortable and well equiped and situated in a quiet neighbourhood at walking distance from the center of Oslo. It is full of sun ant the roof terrasse is a gift! We will highly recommend this appartment.
Great airbnb experience! Petter was a friendly, easy-going and fast-replying host, the apartment comfortable, and the roof-terrace wonderful!
