Charming apartment in central Oslo, walking distance from city center and the popular Grunerløkka and Grønland area. Quiet street. The flat is bright and cozy in an old townhouse with its original fittings (old floorboards and mouldings). The Munch museum and the beautiful Botanical garden is on your doorstep.
My home has been featured in many interior magazines and will be on a norwegian TV interior show in 2014.

LOCATION: A very central location on the east side of town at Grøndland/Tøyen. Only 2 stops away on the tube from the central station, if you feel like walking it will take you 15 min. If you travel in to Oslo on the Airshuttle Bus you will arrive on Oslo BusCentral, this is very close to my place, and if you have a suitcase it will take you 10 min to walk to my space. A lot of nice places to explore in the neigbourhood, Munch Museum. Botanical Garden, the main street at Grandland has many cool places to go out and grab a bite to eat.
Please send me an email if your interested to stay at my place.
I do not except parties or more quest in the house than agreed on booking.
I do charge a cleaning fee, so you don't have to was the floors and bedding etc. But I do expect to find the place in the same conditions as when you arrived, tidy. The deposit fee is for any damage and loss of keys. Please respect the property, its is my home.
You will only be given one set of keys.
During summertime I will have flowers on the balcony so if your staying I would be very happy if you made sure to water them.
We had a brilliant stay in Melissa's flat. She was a great and friendly host, communicated well in advance (including some good local recommendations) and met us at the flat on arrival and departure.
The flat itself is beautifully designed (as seen in the photos), was clean and tidy, and was perfect for our visit. It's well located, about 5 minute walk from the nearest metro station, and only a 20 minute walk to the centre of town.
We loved Oslo and think it's an amazing city! Melissa has done a great job with her apartment. We received detailed information which was great.
Melissa was at the apartment to greet us and give us a tour. She welcomed us to use everything in the kitchen and we felt at home immediately. The apartment is so beautiful and cozy and homely (I think the Norwegians would describe it as koselig - I want to transplant the whole apartment back to Melbourne).
We were travelling as two friends, so it was good to have two bedrooms - the beds were comfortable and it was quiet at night.
The location is really convenient - close to Tøyen train station and the tram. Shops and cafés are close by (try the raisin brioche at Kaffebrenneriet in Grønland).
Melissa is very friendly and chatty, and provided lots of tips and directions on how to get around. Her map and 'things to do' guide was really helpful and we enjoyed everything she recommended.
Oslo is expensive so we took advantage of the the kitchen and local supermarket and had breakfast and most dinners at home - the kitchen is well equipped and has everything you could need, including coffee machine and pantry basics.
I highly recommend staying here!
Nice, bright & spacious flat, clean and well decorated (Nice furniture, nice pictures on walls, white floor).
The architectural neighbourhood is not the best one in Oslo but it's close to the city center, the fjord (the barcode and the opera), and the Munch Museum. The environment is quiet.
Don't forget something... You've to reach the 3rd floor without lift.
Of you know what i wrote, don't hesitate... This flat is a good choice!
Melissa is a very kind host! She waited for us at home, introducing the apartment and the surroundings. The apartment is very stylish and cozy, with a nice balcony overlooking the courtyard. It's in a good position, near the Central Station, The Opera and the Munch Museum.
It's strongly recommended for a couple or a family.
Melissa's apartment was bright and cheerful, as advertised. It is close to 2 subway stops and to the central train station in Oslo. Communication with Melissa was great, and I would highly recommend her apartment to anyone staying in Oslo.

A creative girl from Oslo, but citizen of the world. 33 years old. Love travel and exploring new places. And I think airbnb is such a great way to explore the world.
By trade I'm a graphic designer. I am currently head of PR and communication for a big interior shop here in Oslo. And co-owner of an interior/design/architect blog called IDEAS TO STEAL. It is in English, so google and you will find it.
I love my city and would be more than happy to share tips on where to go and what to do here in town.
