Perfect place for a short city break, comfortable beds, spacious living room with kitchen, nice, clean and worm apartment, parking, 50 mtrs to tram/bus station, we had to cancel our first reservation due to weather condition and they were sympathetic to allow this although it was on the last moment (no fee :) ), this was the reason we re-booked...

It was great having a whole apartment rather than a hotel room, but the arrangement of having to call & arrange to meet somebody to get the key is annoying. I requested parking with my reservation 6 months in advance of my stay & it was only on my arrival that I was advised that they no longer have car... More

The only linen was a mattress protector stretched over some of the mattress and 2 quilts. No sheets. There was no lift, which was essential for us and is advertised as available. The furniture shown on the internet looked nothing like the unit we were shown.. We did not stay, but did receive a full refund, but then had to... More

Nice overall place to stay. The biggest problem is checking in, you will need to be able to make phone call to get access. We did not have a phone and got lucky when the check-in receptionist happened to come out of the garage to leave just after we arrived. He was very friendly and helped us get settled in.... More

The set up of the Gruner Apartments is different from that of a classic hotel. There isn't a front desk at which to check in, but you notify the apartment attendants as you approach. Our family of 10 arrived at separate times, and I did not interact with the Gruner folks, but those who did said they were pleasant. The... More

My partner and I stayed at Grüner Apartments two times, once over Christmas and then a few days later over New Years Eve. Our first stay there was lovely, we were meant to checkin at midnight (a time arranged with the management before hand) as checkin usually ends a 11pm. Unfortunately our bus from the airport never showed up, so... More

We stayed 3 nights there and weren't disappointed by our choice. The location is very good. It's very easy to get to the place from the city center by buss or other public transportation. The only thing, that they don't have a front desk and 24 hours service, so to let you in the need to know your arrival time... More

Nothing is cheap in Norway, so we searched and searched for a place to stay while on our 30 day, nine country driving tour. Of course, we had to schedule in some places to do laundry. This was the selling point for the Gruner. We could finally do laundry! Once we booked the room, we needed to give a time... More

Stayed here for 1 night in a small studio apartment (no bedroom). The apartment is a bit old with no aircondition, so the apartment is warm during summer. This is not a hotel, because when you arrive a hotel you just go inside and check in and they will give you the key. At this place the door is locked... More
