Knowing that hotels and motels in central Oslo are very expensive we offer a cheaper alternative for Oslo travelers.

You'll be in good hands. I'm an experienced host and I've welcomed hundreds of happy guests from all over the world. If you doubt, take your time to read the reviews below :)

The room is located 5 min walk from the main bus station and less than a 10 min walk from the main train station ! The main streets of Oslo and several tourist attractions can also be reached by foot within few minutes. The room is located less than 5 minutes from the main bus station (very convenient if you are taking the shuttle bus or train from the airports).

If you’re on a budget, this is the place to stay. The price is lower than what you would pay in a hotel or hostel in the same area, but there is more to this place that can save you money on your Oslo trip. There is a low price supermarket in the same street where you can buy cheaper food. Furthermore, you can also reach many attractions by foot – no need to buy expensive tickets. And finally, if you book with me, I’ll give you some additional tips that will save you time and money on your Oslo trip – guaranteed ;)

About the room:
- Comfortable double bed
- Table / desk and chair
- Internet connection
- Modern bathroom with heated floor (shared)
- Very central location
- Towels and bedsheets provided
- No direct access to kitchen, but you'll have your own microwave and some plates / cups at your disposal, just as an extra service :)
- You can drink as much coffee and tea as you like.
- No hidden fees or extra costs, except the mandatory Wimdu fee.

I'll meet you at arrival to give you the keys and explain everything about the room.

The flat is in a well insulated building with central heating, therefore the rooms in my flat are always warm and comfortable, even on the coldest winter days.

The room is not very big, but should be convenient enough if you are traveling light and for shorter stays.

The Opera, the Munch museum and the main street Karl Johan are only a few minutes away by foot.

Within 250 m from the flat you'll also find:
- Norwegian restaurant
- 24/7 open grocery store
- Tram / bus stop
- Hairdresser
- Gym (costs 100 NOK per work out session)
- Chinese resturant
- Indian resturant
- several pubs, stores and cafees

Your place will be cleaned and ready till the given check in time, but If you need to store your luggage before or after check in / check out, this can in most cases be arranged (quite conveient since the flat is just a short walk from the station). Please notify me in reasonable time in front of your stay if you need this extra service :)

House rules

The room was very simple but OK. Problematic is erroneous translation of the Wimdu-Advertisement from English into non-English languages. According to the Dutch version is a kitchen accessible and included in the price. But arriving in Oslo, is wasn´t. That makes a difference due to expensive costs for going out for dinner in the city of Oslo.

What was really really bad: on discussing the missing kitchen issue our host was pretty cooperative and proposed even (by himself) to transfer a small share of the money back as compensation. Unfortunately, when we asked him to stick to his promise, he ignored several email ever since. This is not just impolite but simply a no-go.
