Frogner House Apartments - Skovveien 8

Reviewed 1 February 2014

Traveling for business can be stressful and exhausting, but the staff at the Frogner house made me feel at home in a new city as soon as I arrived. As a first time visitor to Oslo, I found the central location of the hotel excellent as I was able to walk anywhere in the city within 10-20 minutes. Staff were able to provide me with directions and advice that proved very useful. The suite itself was well appointed and furnished. The bed and amenities were comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Oslo.

The apartment is well decorated and the facilities; lounge downstairs, kitchen within the apartment, launderette are very helpful.

We travelled to the apartments via tram (no 12 outside the Oslo train station on the left side of the building) and stopped at 'Niel Juels' tram stop before walking 5 mins to the apartment.

Oslo is not very big and I think we would have walked the whole city was it not for the snow everywhere when we were here in January 2014.

There are shops and restaurants, supermarket, 7-11, mc donalds and a lot of other shops around the area.

We read reviews before booking the place and it we really liked the place. Yes the shower does get messy as the shower doors does not keep the water in, and I couldn't see any plugs on the kitchen table, so if you wanted to use the kettle, toaster or coffee machine provided, you had to put it on the floor.

But the deco and the layout of the room is so nice and felt like we almost could move in here for a month. It is refreshing to have stayed here away from hotels, since we were travelling a total of 16 days through Europe.

Would recommend and would return as the price was very competitive in Oslo.

Room Tip: Since the room is on a side street, the noise was not that noticable. We stayed in room 308 (place...

I've been working in Oslo full-time from France for the last month and stayed at the Frogner Service Apartments at Skoveien 8. It easily ticks all the boxes for the best service apartment I've stayed at.
Building: It's a beautiful, well-kept old building with a lot of character. The reception is well decorated and inviting with the smell of fresh coffee. There's laundry facilities on each floor and free to use.
Apartment: It has enough space to make you feel at home. The bed is amazing... it will be greatly missed when I leave. The kitchen is well stocked with cutlery etc. The bathroom is neat and clean. If anything the bathroom was missing more hooks for towels and the apartment's mood lighting was a little too dark.
Location: It is #1 with 2min walk to Solli Plass for all buses/trams, dozens of cafes and bars within the street corner and 7/11, mini-mart and ICA supermarket across the road. It is 10min walk to NationalTheatret for flytoget to airport. The area is safe and well-lit. It is the perfect inner city location and I loved that I was living above a bagel shop.
Staff: The reception staff were always helpful and friendly. Cecilie always responded to my emails promptly and with all the information I needed.

We were delighted with our room in Skovvein 8. Big room, dining table and small kitchenette. Just what you want in one of the most expensive cities in the world. We were able to buy our own breakfast stuff and keep drinks in the fridge. Our only disappointment was that there was no icebox to store ice (especially at £4 a bag!). The bed was so comfortable, it triggered me into buying a topper just like it when I got home. Stylish and comfortable.

We stayed in a studio apartment for 5 nights while visiting our daughter who is living on a boat which is not for us, particularly in January! The room was very spacious with a table and two comfortable chairs. On arrival the receptionist was most helpful and when we had settled in directed us to 'Swashbucklers' coffee shop for a relaxing coffee and cake. Our daughter had left a bag of essential food for us, so we stayed in this first evening and had scrambled egg on toast, cooked in the spotless kitchenette. As our daughter was working the following day, the receptionist gave us a map and suggestions for a sightseeing day. The apartments are well placed near bus and tram stops and not far from the National Theatre train station. We made our own breakfast each morning and it was great being able to make our own tea and coffee etc. when we wanted to. We had use of laundry and drying facilities, which I used once and a vacuum cleaner if I had wanted it. We did find that if we used the shower on full power the water didn't drain fast enough and flooded the bathroom floor! There was a mop and bucket in the bathroom, suggesting that this was an on-going problem. This is the reason I haven't given 5 stars, We will be returning to Oslo in the future and we would definitely stay here.

Dear Margaret,
Thank you for taking of your time to write a review!
we appreciate your feedback, and we will take your comments in consideration and check the drains in the building so that the water will not come out on the floor outside the shower. As your daughter is living in Oslo I assume that you will be returning to Oslo, and we will be more than happy to accommodate you again for your next visit.
Wish you a wonderful Sunday,
Best Regards, Emma Wendel, Hotel Manager

We rented suite 205 for new years eve. Such a lovely room, even with the sofa made up for two of our sons, and a baby bed for our littlest. As this is apartment rental it is not as pricey as a hotel, but the interiors and rooms are so much better. And there are breakfast and other dining possibilities all around - and of course, a kitchen in the apartment.
Great location, sweet service minded staff.

I stayed at the Frogner House Apartments at Skovveien and Underhaugsveien.
Skovveien is conveniently located close to (100 -200 m) from key bus lines that bring you to the center or outward. A 7 eleven around the corner, a nice Indian restaurant (jewel of India) on 1 minute walking distance, a mcdonalds, ...
But above all... what a great accomodation with lushiously decorated rooms. I stayed in two different rooms, both with kitchenette. And that for a reasonable price...
I am renting an apartment for the long term in Underhaugsveien. One bedroom, large living room, lot's of light, washing machine, ... everything i need away from home. Very reasonable price ...
Next to that the beds sleep so well, they have a hard matrasse with a soft topping...
