I was there for a few days but wish it could have been more. It was ideal having a bus stop right next to the property. You can get into Oslo easily and from there go wherever.
Apartment is ideal for a couple or small family.
The booking office and apartment are both very close to the Central Railway station. Quick and easy to find from the airport train. The apartment is modern and comfortable with everything you need for a short break in Oslo. Our visit coincided with the hottest May weather since 1947, so it got very hot in the 8th floor apartment - no aircon - I imagine it isn't needed very often.
The location is close to the new barcode district and an easy walk into the city centre and down to the harbour. Also in a great area for lots of ethnic restaurants and supermarkets. Restaurants to recommend are La Villa Restaurant (Turkish) and Punjab Tandoori (Indian). The fresh fruit in these supermarkets is fresh, tasty and much cheaper than conventional supermarkets.
The Gronland Gym is good for a drink, located on a local square with lots of kids playing.
A boat trip out on the Oslo Fjord is a must - spectacular scenery. Also recommended in good weather are the 50m outdoor pools and diving pool at Frogenbadet - a short tram ride out to the leafy western suburbs. More centrally, lovely gardens in the grounds of the Royal Palace where relaxing on the grass by one of the lakes is completely normal.
We will definitely be returning to Norway.
