Small - but perfect apartment in perfect location.
I do not want to go over the top with my review as otherwise it may not be available next time when I go to Oslo............
Everything was fine, from booking till leaving the apartment. The photos are true to reality, the apartment itself is nicely furnished and a pleasure to stay in. We apreciated the view on the canal and the city.
If weather is fine, you can use the bikes to make a tour around the city.

This is as good as renting a private apartment can get! My wife and I stayed here for two weeks in September and enjoyed every minute of it. Communication with Nils was always quick and very friendly and the housekeeper met us on time to hand over the keys. The apartment is as described and as shown on the pictures, very neatly decorated and furnished and equipped with everything necessary for a short term stay including Apple TV, cable TV and free WiFi. The location is great, right on Tjuvholmen, surrounded by water and with an unequalled variety of restaurants close by. The city is within walking distance and so is public transport. Next time we are in Oslo we will definetely try to stay here again, no matter if only for a couple of days or again for a longer time period. Hint: on a nice evening, use the roof top terrace!
Once we gained entry to the apartment block, we found the entry system bewildering, (instruction on this would have been appreciated), and obtained the keys everything was marvelous. Every modern convenience apart from a micro-wave, in a wonderful location, right in the centre, Masses of restaurants, boats, ships, absolutely buzzing.
Loved it and hope to come again.
Fortunate enough to have stayed here in late July. Oslo was in the middle of a heat wave which was breaking all records! One of the nice things about the apartment is that it is on water and at night we got cool breezes which really helped mitigate the daytime heat. Left the windows wide open, with no bugs!!!!
We loved the location of the apartment. Easy to find, right next to The Thief Hotel. Tons of restaurants and stores in the area. A market for food and other items was only a five minute walk. The apartment was simply furnished Ikea style, with everything vacationers could need. Very clean as well! The owner supplied toilet tissue, paper towels and detergent for the washing machine. He left a few other items for us as well which were greatly appreciated. Since it was so hot, it was really nice to be able to wash and dry clothes during our stay. Also provided was a Bose speaker system so I could plug my iPhone in for music. We also had access to an Apple TV , which was great to watch movies from my iPad in the evening.
The building is very secure as well. We especially liked sitting out on the balcony. If we had been in a hotel, we would have been confined to the room at night. With the balcony we could sit outside as late as we wanted, enjoying the night air.
The whole process of booking the apartment was seamless. The owner is very responsive to all inquiries. We texted him when we arrived in Oslo and he met us at the apartment to give us the key and information about the apartment. During our stay we texted him with several logistical questions and we always heard from him promptly.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Oslo. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights here!
