The apartment has been fully renovated in 2017; new kitchen, new bathrooms, all the bedrooms painted etc. The building is from 1894, and the apartment has a lot of charm. A good mix between old and modern, but at the same time very functional. It is a great place for exploring Oslo and its surroundings.
The apartment is approx 125 sq meter. The ceilings are high (3,2 m), which gives the whole apartment a feeling of air and space. I live in the apartment with my three teenage daughters. There are four relatively small bedrooms, each with the possibility to sleep 1 - 2 persons.
- Bedroom 1: comfortable sofa pull out bed, 140 cm
- Bedroom 2: single bed, which can be extended to 150 cm double bed
- Bedroom 3: 120 cm bed - for one person or two close friends
- Bedroom 4: 140 cm bed
There is one main bathroom, with a toilet, sink, shower and washer/drier. There is a mini-bathroom connected to one of the bedrooms, with a toilet, shower and sink. There is a small balcony towards the backyard off one of the bedrooms. My favorite rooms are the lounge and the combined kitchen/dining room. We spend most of our time in the kitchen/dining room. The kitchen is fully equipped, as I often cook and have guests over.
The apartment is on the third floor, and despite its central location in downtown Oslo, the area is very quiet. However, you are very close to a lot of Oslo´s sights and the apartment is a perfect location for exploring Oslo and its surroundings.
- It is less than 5 min walk to Aker Brygge/Tjuvholmen and the sea. In front of the town hall, you can take sightseeing tours on the Oslofjord, take the small boat across to Bygdøy or take the boat to one of the many small islands in the inner Oslofjord.
- In less than 10 minutes you are by the Nationaltheateret station, the Castle and Karl Johans gate.
- In 15 - 20 minutes you can walk to the Vigeland sculpture park.
- 30 min walk away is Bygdøy, with a number of Oslos best museums, beaches and a generally nice area to visit.
Public transport of all types are within a few minutes walk, if you prefer using the bus, tram, train, metro or boat to explore Oslo and its surroundings. I love using my electrical bike when exploring Oslo, and I would be happy for you to borrow it - if you look after it well. Otherwise, Oslo has a well developed "city bike" system, allowing you to pick up and leave bikes in a number of locations.
