The hotel was extremely helpful in providing information on the area and local transport. The Tram stop (17&18) was immediately outside the hotel which made it very easy to get to and from the city centre. The buffet breakfast had a varied selection of choices, including fried and savoury options, as well as fruit and yogurts. The room itself did... More

This is a great hotel for a budget traveller. Right next to tram lines going straight into the city centre which is very convenient. The breakfast was nice with some hot options and mostly continental options. For the price you can't fault anything. Staff friendly and rooms nice and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

Very nice and clean hotel. Easy to get to downtown with trams 17 and 18 which stops at the hotel. Very attentive and friendly personnel. Nice surroundings to take a walk through. Breakfast could be better though

At first you might be scared off by the fact that the hotel is a bit out of the way (at the end of two tram lines), but that shouldn't bother you at all. Those two trams (no. 17 and 18) arrive every 5 mins or so and it's a 15 mins ride to the city center. The rooms are... More

People are often scared of Oslo's high prices, but at 60 euros per night (breakfast included!) this hotel is rather affordable. Literally situated right next to the tram station, you can get to the city center in 15 minutes or less. The breakfast is very good, with a lot of different things to choose from. They also serve lunch and... More

Clean and convenient hotel With excellent communications by both tram and underground to the city center. The hotel lacks all sorts of charm, luxury or romantic qualities but you get what you pay for. (The bathroom was big enough to fit an infant bed.)

At 68 Euros per night this is one affordable hotel in Oslo. That includes a nice room and breakfast. The room has a big bed, tv, small fridge and usual amenities. Now this is not a luxury, leisure or holiday kind of hotel. So the rooms are not fancy but everything is adequate. The breakfast as as good as any... More

Gaustad Hotell's front door is about 10 metres from the 17/18 trikk (tram) terminus so it's very easy to travel into Oslo city centre and you won't miss the stop on the way back. As other reviewers have said this isn't a luxury hotel and it's part of the Rikshospitalet complex. Rooms are functional and the beds are comfortable. The... More

19 min to the centre of Oslo, the tram stops in front of the door, no 17 and 18. Very noisy but clean rooms. The breakfast is ok, they even have rice milk for vegans. Many customers are (family of) patients of the hospital next door.
