This is Tjuvholmen!

Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages 5
  • Car not necessary
  • No pets allowed

I am putting my wonderful, brand new apartment out on Holiday Lettings, so that YOU can experience the very best Oslo has to offer. The apartment is located in the same building (next door) to Oslo's newest and most upmarket (and of course the most expensive) boutique & art hotel, THE THIEF. However, at my place you will have more space, a full ultra-modern kitchen, a lovely balcony overlooking the canal and Oslo, access to the sunny roof terrace, two mountain bikes in the basement bicycle-room, free wireless high speed internet, and a MUCH bigger refrigerator if you what to chill that white wine..:-) And yeah, it's under 1/3 of the price of a standard room at THE THIEF.

Tjuvholmen, meaning "thief's island", is the ultimate trendy and exclusive new area in Oslo, with pulsating city space, alleys, walking bridges over the canals, and with extensive seafront promenades. Meters away from the apartment you will find several of Oslo's best restaurants, bars, cafes, cinemas and of course, Oslo's best shopping. Public transport is close by, either you prefer bus, tram or the small ferries. 150 meters away, you will find the world famous Astrup Fearnley Museeum of Modern Art, AFMoMA.

The apartment it self is new and exclusive, with a lovely balcony hanging directly over the canal, six stories down. Everything is of high standard, from the Italian tiles in the bathroom to the walnut floor in the rest of the apartment. There is a wonderful Jensen King size bed (180 cm) in the bedroom, and I have put a very nice double sofabed in the living room, but these two "extra" beds is not listed in the oversight. Let me know if you want to use the sofabed, then I'll supply with the extra duvets.

I am also placing two mountain bikes in the basement bicycle room, free for you to use. Take the bikes along the bicycle path to fantastic Bygdoy, to see the old Polar ships of the Norwegian explorers, or the magnificent Viking ships at the Viking Museum. Or, even better, have a picnic by the sea! I will tell you were to go...:-)

Size Sleeps up to 2, 1 bedrooms
Will consider Long term lets (over 1 month), Short breaks (1-4 days)
Access Car not necessary
Nearest Amenities 200 m
Nearest travel links 2 km
Family friendly Great for children of all ages, Suitable for people with restricted mobility
Notes No pets allowed, No smoking at this property

"The apartment was brilliant"

Once we gained entry to the apartment block, we found the entry system bewildering, (instruction on this would have been appreciated), and obtained the keys everything was marvelous. Every modern conv… More

"Outstanding location, beautiful apartment!"

Fortunate enough to have stayed here in late July. Oslo was in the middle of a heat wave which was breaking all records! One of the nice things about the apartment is that it is on water and at nigh… More

The apartment is new, clean, quiet and located in the hip part of town with a nice view of the water. Nils, the owner, could not have been nicer or more helpful! It's the perfect pied a terre for… More

"Good for a short stay"

Pros:Once you work out transport, the flat is not so far away from central, a bus or tram can take you from the central train station to a stop within a few minutes walk from the flat [not close from … More

I am very sorry to hear of your troubles, of the 28 reviews on Tripadvisor, Holiday Lettings and Airbnb, you are the first one not to have a "5 out of 5" experience.

Too bad you did not let me know of the clogged drainage in the shower, it was a 20 second job to remove an obstruction from the system, and you would have had a perfect drainage for the rest of your stay.

As for restaurants, there is at least 18 of Oslos best restaurants within 300 meters from the apartment, so I am very sorry to hear that you could only locate a couple of them.

Also, I am so sorry to hear that you struggled to find the right door. An email with a detailed photo, with a red ring around the right door, together with a written description on how to find and enter the building, was sent to the email address that was provided from Holiday Lettings, so I can only assume it did not reach you.
Again, that is most unfortunate. Welcome back next time you are in Oslo, the first night will of course be on me, to compensate you for your troubles.
