About Bjørvika

Situated in Olso’s newly trendy neighbourhood, the Bjørvika Apartments offer guests sleek and modern Scandinavian design in a most convenient central location.

There are apartments from one to three bedrooms available. All have that sleek design conscious Scandinavian look, and feature fully equipped kitchens, separate bedrooms, washing machines, flat screen TV’s and private balconies. Free in-room Wi-Fi is available.

Bjørvika is more of an apartment rental facility than an apart-hotel, so there are not many public facilities in the building. There is, however, a roof terrace, which is a great spot to hang out in midsummer.

The central location means that those not self-catering will have no trouble finding great dining options in the surrounding streets. The letting agents will be happy to offer personal recommendations.

The apartments are located mere steps from Oslo’s main railway station, while the airport is 30 miles away, but is easily reached by means of public transport.

Positive Reviews

Central, yet quiet, location

Several guests express their surprise that an apartment building so central can also be so quiet. The management company do advertise the buildings soundproofing credentials, and guests seem to agree that the rooms are very well insulated, both from street noise and from other apartments.

Letting staff very engaged

Despite not being permanently on-site, guests commended the staff for being easily contactable, and very quick to remedy any issue guests brought to their attention. Guests certainly didn't feel as if they were checked-in and then left entirely to their own devices.

Good value for Oslo

The question of value kept popping up in reviews. While no guests thought that the room-rate was particularly cheap, they understood that Oslo was one of the most expensive cities in the world, and reasoned that they had received excellent value for the accommodation they occupied.

Negative Reviews

Peculiar shower design

While it is a fairly common complaint in newly designed places, several guests mention they did not like the gap between the shower panel and the floor, saying it caused flooding of the bathroom floor. Whether the reason for the gap is in order to be trendy, or to help make cleaning easier, many guests don't like the design.

No staples in the kitchen

Quite a few guests commented that, while the kitchens were very well equipped, they contained no staples at all - no salt, pepper, tea or coffee. Many felt that it would be a nice gesture, and fairly simple to put in place if some kitchen basics had been included.

Some issues with the mattresses

While mattress firmness is very much a question of personal taste, and complaints about this are fairly commonplace and inevitable, there seem to be a bit too many in this instance to dismiss. Guests speak of sagging mattresses that they believe should have been replaced.
