We enjoyed our stay, but Oslo was too hot, and Frogner House has no air conditioner. However they borrowed us two fans, and it helped a bit. Much traffic outside, but keeping the windows closed helps reducing the noise. However, only one of 4 windows in our room was possible to open, so we got no turnover of the air... More

We chose Frogner House as it was near to our French friends' apartment and it was a success on many fronts. it's right above a Parisian style cafe and surrounded by leafy boulevards but of course much quieter than Paris. The area seems to be full of home decorating shops and boutiques - not that we looked into them, of... More

Large room, nicely decorated in a very nice old house located in a nice suburb. Everything is clean, brand new and well maintained. Close to the Royal Palace and its park. After crossing the park, you are in the main street.

Great room for a short stay. I had my 1 yr old in tow so the kitchenette came in very handy. Very clean, excellent location to walking and public transport, and decorated very chic. Staff was extremely nice. A little noisy (outside/streets) and you will need windows open in the summer as they have no air conditioning.

We enjoyed our stay in a one bedroom flat. Tiny but adequate kitchen with nearby grocery stores. Just a 5-10 minute walk to the high speed train from the airport (Theater station) - taxis are very expensive! Another 5-10 minutes to the downtown area. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The tram runs right outside, so the street facing... More

Not at all impressed by Frogner House Apartments. The photo shows the living room of a 3 bedroom apartment at Oscarsgt 86... Say no more.... We was "greeted" by an half empty apartment, hardly any cutlery, plates etc... We are 5 people staying in the apartment and there is no seating for all of us in the living room (well... More

I was given a spacious room in the attic and the window was tiny. There was minimal lighting which I think is typical for all the rooms. Public transportation is great and you can walk to Vigeland Park in 15 min by walking or ride the tram in 5 min. The young ladies at reception were terrific. I visited Vigeland... More

The room (apartment) is small, but perfectly adequate. We had all we needed ( but we never used the kitchen) and it looked good. The design was done with love. Little noise, good location and very very nice staff! I would stay here again on a return trip to Oslo!

I stayed here for the month of April 2014, overall experience was good. But the rooms towards the tram line is little disturbing at nights, due to traffic. Hotel staffs are extremely helpful. Note, there is no telephone connection, a pay phone for making overseas calls would have been nice.
