Chateau Apartments is located by the river Akerselva in the Grunerlokka district. It took me 20 minutes to get there on foot with luggage from Oslo Sentralstasjon.
The apartment I had was spacious and pleasant enough, but one always felt that the décor could do with a bit more imagination. The furniture is quite basic, IKEA style. In my apartment, there were unfurnished spaces which made the rooms look empty and sound echoey. The chandeliers look incongruous in the setting, which otherwise would be described as furnished student accommodation. The kitchen utensils supplied are good for light cooking only, and I had to ask for items that I assumed would come as standard. The WiFi was somewhat erratic and the heating was hard to regulate, making the apartment stifling at times. However, one gets what one pays for and this is a minor quibble, because the service I received was friendly and competent.
I would recommend this place for those on a budget looking for a place to stay in Oslo.
