Overall, we would definetely recommend this b&b because of its great location (just in front of Vigeland Park, in a large family house in the upmarket Frogner district) and its reasonable prices (around Euro 120 per night with breakfast, still affordable and quite mild considering how ridiculously expensive Oslo is).
Our room was very large (on the second floor) with a spacious bathroom and a kitchenette, and the breakfast (which is ok, although nothing special) was served daily directly in the room.
Coming to the downsides of this place, well... we are sorry to say that but they don't do anything to make us feel at home, or not even welcome guests. There is no decoration in the room, you don't have any access to areas of the house outside your room and the only concern of the landlady seems getting the money, speficying very clearly that she does not accept credit cards almost before even saying hello. No tips on the city, no "how are you today?" or any other conversation with the guests outside the bill, no personal interaction at all (that is what we really like of b&bs and also the main reason why we prefer them to hotels). To be honest, it is even dubious that they are a real authorised bed and breakfast: nothing is written outside, no signpost, no name, nothing.
To sum up, go for it if you are finding a reasonably priced accommodation in a good location in Oslo, but don't expect anything particularly warm, cosy or romantic as you could expect from a good bed and breakfast.
