We are a family of five, and even though the apartment was small it was big enough for us (we brought an own bed for the baby). A small but well- equipped kitchen, a new bathroom, two double- beds. The apartment was in addition furnished with two easy chairs in front of a cozy-and old wood burning stove, and a dining table with four chairs. The entrance to the apartment was through a small, very charming garden. A quiet spot, a perfect place for the children to play in the afternoons, to eat dinner or to enjoy a glass of wine in the evenings. Perfect place to stay for families as well as couples. Located at Grunerløkka with its many cafes, small shops, restaurants and also very close to the city centre (appr 10 minutes walk from the apartment). Highly recommended and we will be back for sure.
