Frogner House Apartments - Colbjornsens gate 3
Ranked #4 of 35 Speciality Lodging in Oslo
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Came over here in October 2012 for 3 nights.

The building is a very grand building which has had a refit to the interior so the room have been modernised.

Very close to town (10 min walk) or tram stops nearby. The building is situated one street behind the Royal Palace.

PS If you a fan of the Rolling Stones as for the room with the artwork.

We almost always stay in apartments in locales in Europe where we are spending more than four nights. The Villa Park is in a wonderful location, tree-lined streets next to the Royal Palace in a neighborhood of embassies and a couple of blocks from a lovely, locals type area. The apartment itself on the second or third floor had a nice view of the surrounding homes and a large veranda that was, to our surprise not private but shared with another apt. The kitchen and living area was a good size, being all one room. The cleanliness of this area was definitely average. The sleeping area was...(notice I didn't say bedroom) was basically a bed in a wide hallway, stuffed up against three walls. As far as quirky policies...the apartment also contained a loft bed, a platform up a ladder. There was a sign on the bed that said if you used it you would be charged extra. Another interesting quirk that in the many apartments we have stayed in before we hadn't experienced, was another sign that said unless the renter replaced the hair dryer on a hook in that exact location you would also be assessed a fine. Notice the photos of the correct and incorrect placement of the dryer. During our stay the elevator was broken so was fun to lug the luggage. We didn't need to talk to the office person there but, in spite of the daily schedule of office hours, no one was ever present that week. I would recommend this apt. due to the great location but only after a very careful review of the sleeping arrangements and maybe a couple of emails to clarify the specifics.

Perfect place to visit Oslo. 10 min to metro, 100m to Tram, 5 to bus, 200 to Royal Palace. What I can't say more :)
I was in room for 3 persons, and for me, and my family, was more like enough. If price will be in same level Ill will come again in next summer.

The villa is on a perfect location, just behind the royal palace and 10 minutes walk from the centre. Public transport around the corner. Free parking in the streets around.
Studio had small kitchen and a washing machine / dryer. A pity there was no manual for this machine.
Bed and shower good. A pity the windows cannot open because of fire instructions. Smell of cooking stays in the room. The studio and surroundings are quiet.

It is a bit more expensive than hotel, but it is well worth it. It is so clean, stylish and in the heart of Oslo. The management is very responsive and the place is like a home. Thank you for making it an excellent stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the palace... great views

We, a couple, spent a week here. We had a nice room equipped with a small kitchen. It was perfect for us. We felt it was strange with no reception, but we had been informed beforehand about the check-in procedures. The price is, compared to other hotels and considering the location close to the royal palace and in a beautiful neughbourhood, OK. Whenever we return to Oslo, we will choose this place again. Things we would wish for our next stay, though: a second set of keys, a coffee machine, and the dishes could be better cleaned.
