Great flat in a super location with good communication from the host. Thanks Lydia!
Really cosy place in a great location near to bars / coffee shops / restaurants and transport so suited our purposes perfectly. Good Wifi and stereo system with external headphone jack to connect iphone / ipod were an added bonus. Lydia made the process as smooth as possible in terms of check in / check out so can't recommend enough.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans le studio de Lydia et Matt.
Nous étions ravis d'avoir choisi le quartier de Grünerlokka plutôt que celui de la gare centrale car c'était l'occasion de découvrir ce quartier que nous n'aurions pas forcément eu la curiosité d'explorer. C'était très agréable de prendre le petit dej et dîner dans ce quartier bobo. Accès très facile dans le centre avec le tram (à 5 min à pied) qui passe toutes les 5 minutes.
Nous avons été légèrement déçus à l'arrivée par le manque de charme de la résidence et de l'appartement. Ceci dit, nous nous sommes sentis très bien dans ce studio. Il était propre et nous avions tout ce dont nous avions besoin (serviettes de douche, sèche cheveux, batterie de cuisine, bouilloire...).
Comme on peut le voir sur la photo, il s'agit certes de 2 lits simples côte à côte mais on y dort très bien et les couettes et oreillers étaient très propres et confortables.
La salle de bain avec chauffage par le sol était un bonheur !
Enfin, merci à Lydia qui nous avait envoyé toutes les explications depuis notre arrivée à l'aéroport. Il nous a suffi de suivre ses indications à la lettre.
First time using air b n b and definitely coming back!! On a students budget with a nice taste this is perfect, same price as a hostel but so much more comfortable and stylish. Came to Oslo as two Aussie girls to explore and nordic ski in the area. Blown away by the landscape and sites of Oslo city. We will come again! The apartment is very small and cosy.
We had a great time at Lydia's flat. The flat was very close from the tram which took us to the city centre (about 5 min walking) and it was very close to a supermarket. That was very useful as it was -10 degrees and as I come from a warmer place, walking too long in the cold was difficult (I recommend bringing skiing clothes if you go there in January). The flat was very clean and tidy when we arrived. It was perfect for a couple and very warm. The Wi-Fi worked very well as well and the neighbourhood was quiet and close to Munch museum.
Communication with Lydia made our trip very comfy as she really helped us, sent us info about the itinerary we had to follow and left us touristy info in the flat. We knew we could contact her in case of problem, and it was nice to know that someone would help us if we were in trouble. We had a good time!
Great modern studio apartment in a lovely area of Oslo. Really reasonable for Norway would highly recommend.
We unfortunately didn't get to meet Lydia but she arranged for us to pick keys up for a shop near by and sent us plenty of details of how to get from the airport to the apartment, very helpful!
Lydia and Matt have a great little studio in a cool part of Oslo. It was very quiet and the bed was actually *extremely* comfortable.
I was able to walk to quite a few sites. Even to central station is not far and it's only < 0.5 km from the market street where there is a lot going on.
I stayed in this cute studio flat for 4 days. It has everything you need for a short stay. Lydia was busy on the day that I arrived but she managed to arrange for her friend to meet me at the flat and explain everything. Which was great and made be feel very welcome.
The flat itself is clean and everything is brand new. The location is excellent - I pretty much walked everywhere in the city even though it was snowing during my whole visit.
Overall I highly recommend the flat. The price, location and quality of the apartment are all top notch.
Perfect place to stay for a New Year break! We saw in 2014 on the roof of this apartment block surrounded by fireworks from all directions amid a party atmosphere with the other residents who all came upstairs at midnight. We found the studio apartment ideal for our needs. I would recommend it - clean, comfortable and warm! Although it's small, it's been cleverly laid out so it doesn't feel cramped. Also really good location for the tram into town and there are some nice restaurants, bars, shops etc in the neighbourhood, plus a supermarket just metres away.
We didn't meet Lydia and were a bit apprehensive about picking up the key in a cafe but it all went smoothly and we had a great stay.
Great location in Grünerløkka. Clean and modern studio apartment. About 5 min walk to trams and 30-45 min walk to downtown depending on where you're going. I highly recommend using tram and bus in Oslo.
The unit is perfect for two and there's a grocery store around the corner.
We picked up the keys at a deli and had no problems during our 5 days with the apartment.
