Apartment - Entire home/apt · Sigurds gate, Oslo, Oslo 0650, Norway

The Space

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.

• Size 72m2
• Master Bedroom with double bed 160cm
• Guest room with single bed 80 cm wide ( I have an extra fold out bed if you are 4 people staying, ok to stay on for a few days. )
• Nice kitchen with all the appliances you need
• Livingroom with eating area
• Bathroom with shower and washing machine
• Balcony with room for good friends (sunshine in the morning - 15.30 in the summertime)
• The flat is on the 3rd floor, so you will get your legs exercised :) NO ELEVATOR,

I work with design and interior so I love my home and I hope you will as well!

The Neighborhood

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.

  • Melissa's place was so lovely. She was very attentive and responsive throughout our stay. Her place is a full of character and very nicely decorated. Will definitely recommend it to others!

  • Great experience! Melissa is super helpful, friendly and accommodating. Lovely apartment in a good position in Oslo. If only we could have stayed longer!

  • Just stayed at Melissa's flat - three of us - lots of room... well situated to explore oslo - dead easy to walk anywhere or to hop on the nearby T.

    Melissa was informative and nice and very easy to deal with... and has great design taste!!!

    And we even managed to find a little indian sweets shop that was as good as we get in Toronto.

    All in we thought it was excellent

  • Melissa was very responsive and helpful setting up our stay. The apartment was well located near the train station and very useful. We had a very nice time there. This apartment is best for 2 adults and maybe a few small children. We had 4 adults and the single beds were really more like 'cots' and not very comfortable. As long as you're a small group, this place should be ideal.

  • My only regret with respect to staying in Melissa's flat is that I in fact never actually got to meet her in person, due to circumstances beyond her control. That having been said, I found myself very impressed by the both imminently efficient and sincerely friendly manner in which Melissa communicated with me. As for living there in her intriguingly decorated, well-equipped, and well-situated apartment (the city center is all of eighteen minutes away on foot (downhill, that is), and the Munch Museum is just a few minutes' walk further up the hill), it was an altogether harmonious experience. The only somewhat challenging aspects were in fact negotiating the four flights of stairs, on the one hand (especially with my rather cumbersome luggage), and making do with the rather narrow bed on the other. Regarding the latter, I should add that I had agreed to staying in the guest room rather than the master bedroom in view of my being by myself, and furthermore, not being a large person and having slept on a tatami mat in Japan for fourteen months (yes, of my own volition), I found myself sleeping well as it was. What is more, Melissa's neighbours, both inside the building and in the adjoining buildings around the central courtyard, are not the rambunctious sort, hence, peace reigned at night. Yes, I do recommend choosing Melissa's flat as your centre of doing or being or both for your visit to Oslo, whether it be only for one brief week, as in my case, or for a month or longer!

  • Hi! Lovely apartment, very clean. Melissa was very kind helping us with any information and even with recovering a parcel which didn't arrived in time. We didn't find parking space very easily, but this is a problem everywhere. Thank you, Mellisa! PS We are a family of four (2 adults and 2 children, 10 and 12)

    July 2012
  • Very nice flat!
    It was a pleasure to spend 2 weeks at Melissa's!
    Very close to Munch's Museum and Toyenbadet swimming pool

  • Melissa's apartment is just beautiful! It has such wonderful character and is so lovely in its design. Clever and homey, this apartment was a delight! I booked it for my colleagues, who were staying with their baby while in town for meetings. It was very comfortable, and Melissa was very accommodating. I highly recommend this place!

Graphic designer and interior blogger
About
A creative girl from Oslo, 31 years old. By trade I am a graphic designer who have worked a lot in print media, but the later years I have gone all digital. At the moment I am head of communication and PR for a big interior shop here in Oslo. And I also have one of Norways most visited modern interior blogs called IDEAS TO STEAL. It is in English, so (website hidden) and you will find it. Love to travel, see new places, and stay at beautiful and cozy hotels and homes. And I think airbnb is such a great way to explore the world. I love my city and would be more than happy to share tips on where to go and what to do here in town. Or maybe you would like to join me out with my friends? Winter of 2013 I hope to get to travel to someplace warm. Maybe down under to Australia or a week in Mexico?
