“Beautiful, modern, clean and great location - exceeded expectations!”

The apartment is new, clean, quiet and located in the hip part of town with a nice view of the water. Nils, the owner, could not have been nicer or more helpful! It's the perfect pied a terre for 2 with great restaurants, city hall, the Astrup Fearnley and the Oslo fjord cruise departure point around the corner. Can't wait to go back!

“Absolut perfect!”
Reviewed 1 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Nils’s apartment was absolutely perfect! The clean, bright, inviting and well maintained place has all the amenities needed for myself and part time for my partner who visited me for some days. Especially, the bedroom is a highlight with its “Jensen” bed - it promises a heavenly sleep experience. And the underfloor heating in the bathroom is pure gold for cold female feet. All the time I felt like being somehow “at home” and I really enjoyed the stay at Tjuvholmen, in my view one of the most beautiful places in Oslo. Nils is very hospitable, personable, helpful and friendly. Despite I didn’t meet Nils personally all the things that had to be managed were easy going. All my requests that I had, there were not so much, were answered very fast! Therefore, I definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Oslo!

“Fabulous place to stay if you are in Oslo”

What an amazing place to stay, both the apartment and it's situation was fantastic. Nils could not have been a better host. The apartment was even nicer than photos suggest, which i had thought were already impressive to start with, and so warm and cozy. It was such a great place to return to at the end of a day. Highly recommend!

“Good for a short stay”
Reviewed 16 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Pros:
Once you work out transport, the flat is not so far away from central, a bus or tram can take you from the central train station to a stop within a few minutes walk from the flat [not close from airport]
Near a minimart [the joker] & a bakery & a couple of restaurants
Nice clean flat, has washer/dryer in the compact bathroom [which we didn’t try using as it was first stop on the holiday]
Several tv stations although none with English entertainment, more like news etc
Comfortable bed, really soft & I slept so well on it
Oven & good sized fridge & basic home amenities
Pretty quiet & peaceful around this area probably as it is not central

Cons:
Might have been our experience as we had troubles communicating with host through site leading up to arrival, but difficult to find initially as mention was made of it being between the bakery where we picked up the keys & between the thief hotel, wandered around for ages & no locals knew where to guide us & the bakery person handing over keys did not have any idea [building is actually a couple of doors from the right from the thief hotel]
Not actually waterfront or with any more than a sliver of water views [you can see some water underneath a neighbouring apartment building & between a dock]
Heating seems to kick in centrally at a certain time but if you’re there in winter daytime it may be a bit cool for a while. A fan & radiator on the wall did not warm anything up so we at least assume, that it’s centrally controlled
Shower doesn’t drain that well so after a short while you’re standing in a big puddle/small lake
Overall, is economical for Norway & I would consider staying again.

Management Response

I am very sorry to hear of your troubles, of the 28 reviews on Tripadvisor, Holiday Lettings and Airbnb, you are the first one not to have a "5 out of 5" experience.

Too bad you did not let me know of the clogged drainage in the shower, it was a 20 second job to remove an obstruction from the system, and you would have had a perfect drainage for the rest of your stay.

As for restaurants, there is at least 18 of Oslos best restaurants within 300 meters from the apartment, so I am very sorry to hear that you could only locate a couple of them.

Also, I am so sorry to hear that you struggled to find the right door. An email with a detailed photo, with a red ring around the right door, together with a written description on how to find and enter the building, was sent to the email address that was provided from Holiday Lettings, so I can only assume it did not reach you.
Again, that is most unfortunate. Welcome back next time you are in Oslo, the first night will of course be on me, to compensate you for your troubles.

“An absolutely splendid spot to call home”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We had the pleasure of calling Nils' apartment home for a two week stay -- part business, part holiday. It was awesome! Nils is very quick to respond to any queries; his enthusiasm for Oslo and life in general is completely infectious. The apartment is spotless, modern yet homely, smartly furnished with colourful artwork on the walls. The high speed wi-fi makes keeping up-to-date with emails and planning excursions a breeze. We had breakfast at "home" each day and cooked several evening meals -- the apartment is perfectly equipped for this approach and there is an ICA supermarket nearby (plus a Joker mini-mart even closer). The bed is vast and supremely comfortable. The bathroom is a pleasure to use, with excellent water pressure. You will enjoy being part of a vertical community; as the sun sets, neighbours across the water light their lanterns and you too can light the one on Nils' balcony, adding a little sparkle to the night sky. The neighbourhood is fabulous and you can start each day with a walk into the centre of town via the waterfront, where there is always something new to spot, including dashing little boats plus huge cruise and naval ships. If you're a fan of contemporary art, do visit the Astrup Fearnley Museet which is skipping distance from Nils' door -- you will be confronted, challenged and leave with plenty to think about! I had several days exploring in solo mode while my husband was attending a conference -- solo female travellers will feel very safe in this neighbourhood, even when coming/going at night. Do jump on the various trams and see where you end up -- the 7-day travel pass is excellent value, particularly as you can use it for bus, train, tram and ferry. Hop on the #12 and enjoy pizza at Pizza De Mimmo. Or head to Mr India in town for an amazingly tasty meal (try the blue cheese naan). My husband and I thoroughly recommend booking in with Nils for your time in Oslo. We were tempted to miss our plane home... happy travels!
