Norway’s enchanting capital, Oslo never fails to capture the hearts of visitors. It’s a place where the charms of the past blend seamlessly with the thrills of modern life, where the natural beauty of fjords and mountains contrast with a bustling city life, and where visitors can enjoy cultural attractions ranging from museums and galleries to exciting shopping and dining destinations. Oslo’s far from the biggest city in Europe, but your experience of the city can vary wildly depending on where you stay. From lively areas like Frogner and Aker Brygge to quieter neighborhoods that’ll make you feel like a local, these are the Oslo Airbnbs to book.
We hope you love these Oslo Airbnbs! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.
Spanning nearly 1,300 square feet, this condo sandwiched between parks is quite spacious for a one bedroom, especially when you factor in the 320-foot rooftop terrace — a perk of booking a penthouse Airbnb in Oslo. It has all the amenities you’ll need for a comfortable and functional stay — including fast WiFi, two living room spaces, an indoor fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen with plenty of counter space, and a dining room table that seats seven — but you’ll also love the look of the apartment. In true Scandi fashion, the artsy interior is both cool and homey.
This luxurious two-bedroom apartment is located in Oslo’s Aker Brygge wharf area, meaning guests have access to tons of popular restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, and markets, as well as beautiful views of the inner harbor. The apartment is perched on the ninth floor of its building with a spacious balcony, but you can also take in panoramas of the water, Oslo fjord, and Akershus Fortress from the building’s shared rooftop terrace. Best of all, guests have access to a swimming pool that’s heated to 82 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year.
A quick walk from Oslo’s central station, this one-bedroom apartment is the perfect base to take in the city, from strolling along the Akerselva river, to touring the botanical garden a five-minute walk away, to shopping at the Oslo City or Byporten mall, to soaking up the sights along the Karl Johans Gate, the main street that runs through the city. Back at the Airbnb, you’ll find a comfortable bedroom that’s perfect for a couple, a recently renovated bathroom with a washer and dryer if you need one, and modern electronics with a variety of streaming services to enjoy during your downtime. On sunny days, you’ll love having a balcony complete with a gas grill.
Located in Oslo’s Løren neighborhood, not far from the airport, this two-bedroom apartment can comfortably house up to four guests, making it a great choice for families or groups of friends. The master bedroom has a queen bed while the second bedroom has a double bed. The rest of the apartment is great for shared living, from the open kitchen and large dining room to the living room with a gas fireplace and the private balcony outside. It’s not the liveliest area of Oslo, but it’s perfect for travelers who want to be in a quiet area with access to grocery stores, cafes, and plenty of public transportation for when they want to access the busier parts of the city.
High ceilings, large windows, striking navy blue accent walls, and immaculate decor welcome you to this one-bedroom apartment once you enter the classic building that houses it. Staring out the windows won’t yield city views, but you will get to admire an enclosed courtyard that lends the apartment a peaceful quality. The apartment is located in Oslo’s Torshov neighborhood, which plays host to two parks and a main street, Vogts Gate, where you’ll find plenty of cafes and restaurants to keep you energized while you explore the area and beyond.
If you like high-end shopping, swanky dining, and otherwise going all out on vacation, this elegant one-bedroom apartment in the Frogner borough is an excellent choice. It’s located in the central and highly coveted Vika neighborhood, adjacent to Aker Brygge, near another lively neighborhood called Tjuvholmen where you’ll find attractions such as a sea bath, beach, lawn, sculpture park, and exciting art galleries. The apartment is also within walking distance of shopping streets in the city center such as Bogstadveien and Karl Johans Gate, tons of excellent dining, and popular parks such as Slottsparken, Hydroparken, and Kontraskjæret.
Road-trippers or family vacationers, this is the Oslo Airbnb for you. The two-bedroom apartment is conveniently located near a metro station that can take you to the city center in a matter of minutes, but it also comes with free street parking. You’ll be on the top floor of the building, but you should note that there’s no elevator, so you should be prepared to carry your luggage up to the fourth floor. When you get inside, you’ll find a master bedroom with a queen bed, a second bedroom with a double bed, and a couch that can be used as an additional bed, plus a few fun features including heated floor tiles in the bathroom and a cozy enclosed balcony.
This one-bedroom apartment has the best of both worlds — or both sides of Oslo, at least — being located on a serene street that’s a mere five-minute walk from the most energetic spots in the city. Anywhere you can’t reach on foot you can access via the Skillebekk tram station, which is only two minutes away on foot, is a one-minute ride from the city center, and connects to every station in Oslo. After a full day of sightseeing, you’ll appreciate having an immaculate home base to retreat to, complete with a grassy courtyard where you can soak up the rays.
Top-notch amenities, tons of natural light, and a private balcony overlooking a verdant backyard are a few of the perks of this two-bedroom apartment near Bogstadveien, Oslo’s main shopping street, and Vigeland Sculpture Park, a popular tourist attraction in Norway. The apartment is situated on the fourth floor with elevator access. It comprises two bedrooms and two bathrooms, both of which have showers and heated floors. The modern kitchen is fully equipped and connected to a dining area that features a large dining table, and the spacious living room has a generous seating area and a large TV with Netflix++.
