“Smart Accommodation & Location in Oslo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

I highly reccommend booking a Frogner House Apartment when visiting Oslo. We stayed here 3 nights. The reception at Skovvein 8 is very impressive, but not stuffy. And the receptionist, Angela was very friendly and helpful. We were able to spread out in our nice peaceful apartment with windows facing a small courtyard, large living room and large bedroom with plenty of storage space. The bed was very comfortable. We made the most of our tiny kitchen. There were no condiments but it was well Ikea equipped, ie: coffee press, kitchen scissors & good garlic press. Everything seemed fairly new. We did laundry in the building, downstairs with machines more effecient than home. Perfect timing coming from Copenhagen and heading to Balestrand. The location was good--quick walk to the harbor (ferries and more shopping, restaurants, coffee shops & grocery stores) or a tram. We walked to Frogner Park--a bit far but with great surprise. We would definitely stay here again!

Visiting Oslo? Frogner House Apartments on Arbinsgate is a great location between the Palace and Aker Brygge. Anything from a studio to a 2 bedroom is available with a kitchen with everything needed to cook a basic meal. Transportation (National Theatre station) is close by, but you can walk just about anywhere. Nice restarants (I recommend Ruffino's), a great grocery store, coffee shops, movie theaters are all an easy walk. Washer, dryer, iron are all available in the basement if needed - just provide the soap. Great for long stays.

If not available, their main apartment building at Skovvein 8 is a great alternative - just a little further up the hill. I spend a lot of time in Oslo for business and have stayed at both and consider either my second home.

We stayed at the apartments on Skovveien. it's about 10 mins walking from the centre of Oslo (national theater) in a very pretty residential area, close to many embassies, easy bus ride from the main train/bus stations (10-15 mins). Plenty of shops, cafes restaurants around. There is an agreement with the cafe next door to provide breakfast for about £10 each - bagel, yoghurt, juice, coffee. Fairly good value for Oslo! The decor is a bit tired looking, but the aprtement was huge with two single beds, a sofa (no sofa bed), small fridge and small cooktop. The Frogner park is a short walk (10-15 mins) or tram ride (5 mins).
