We stayed in a large room on the top floor. Quiet, clean and comfortable. Gil who was our host could not have done more to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfasts were delicious and ample. The location was superb. A lovely residential neighborhood, a couple of blocks from the memorable Vigeland Park. A beautiful park filled with the wonderfully human sculptures... More

This is a large private home, converted to a B&B, on a beautiful street steps from one of Oslo's truly wonderful Parks. This one is named after the famous Norwegian Sculptor, Gustav Vigeland whose works fill the parks paths, open spaces and gorgeous fountains. Plan a half day at least. Great place to run in the early hours. The rooms... More

I cannot in all honesty recommend this place. The pictures on the website belie the tired/worn out condition of this establishment. The manager Gill was wonderful and did his very best, but the proprietor of this B&B needs to undertake a serious upgrade to bring the property up to an acceptable standard to justify the prices charged. Having booked for... More

My daughter was going to Oslo for a music competition the same weekend it was the national soccer championship. We ordered 2 weeks earlier and it was difficult to find a room. On the day she was to fly, she received a call from Villa Frogner saying they were full! She tried to explain that we had booked a room... More

We spent 1 night in Villa Frogner B&B and are totally satisfied. It's a magnificent house, looking aristocratic, the owner gives same impression. Hospitable, calm, respecting, tall and relatively friendly. Here are the pros: - Perfect location: near the park, 2-3 minitues walk to the tram station, in a splendid, quiet and obviously upmarket neighbourhood; - Spacious and cozy room:... More

The room was warm, with a fridge, heather, TV and very fast internet. Two clean bathrooms in the downstair floor where i was, and a sauna... More

I did read the reviews before booking 5 nights at the Villa Frogner in Oslo and I made sure to communicate with the owners before hand that I was not a Norwegian speaker. I also mentioned that I had been to Oslo before (wouldn't be expecting directions etc.) and was willing to pay cash as needed. There are two older... More

OK - I DEFINITELY should have read Tripadvisor before booking this place! Unfortunately I didn't know about it, but just went by the website which though simple, looked appealing. It had no link giving reviews from guests, and I honestly did not expect negative reviews from what I saw on the site. Don't be fooled by the website!!! I should... More
