My apartment is located in the super nice and trendy Grünerløkka area. The apartment was renovated a few years ago and has a separate bedroom with large double bed (I also have an extra airbed if needed as the sofa is too small for a grown up). The living room is spacious and has a dining table, open fire place, sofa and table (it's actually my grandmother's old wooden chest) and a big flat screen, dvd player and a Bose docking station for your iPod. There is also wireless Internet. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking etc. The apartment also has a nice balcony facing the backyard.
Occasionally there can be some noise from the happy people passing by on the street at night but I've found it is the charm of living in this area :) Markveien is a one way street so there is not so much traffic.
You practically have everything you need within hands reach! There are lots of nice restaurants, cool bars, music clubs and coffee shops just around the corner. And the area is also very good for shopping with it's unique small shops and vintage boutiques. Oslo's newest cinema is a five min walk from the apartment. There are several parks in the area and you can have a nice walk along the river Akerselva. The Botanical garden and the Much Museum is only a 15 minute walk away. One of Oslo's newest attractions, Mathallen (Food Market / Food Court Oslo) is 500 m away.
Public transportation is just around the corner, 400 meters away. Tram 11, 12 and 13 will take you to Oslo Central station and Karl Johan (close to the Opera) in five minutes. You will walk there in 15 minutes.
There is free street parking in most of the neighborhood area.
I hope you will have a lovely stay in Oslo and I welcome you to stay in my cozy place and experience my beloved neighborhood! Feel free to ask me any questions.
Please check the dates with me as I am pretty flexible and might be able to rent it out on short notice. (Therefore my calendar is not always updated).
Please no smoking inside the apartment. For a third guest, there is an extra charge of 100 NOK/night.
