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.

Me and my girlfriend stayed in this hotel last weekend (fri-mo) and it was one of the best stay ever. Stuff was enormously friendly, helpful (thanks Ingvild :) ), great location (not so far to downtown, but in quiet location), great price, clean room. Once more, thank you for everything for all of you. We enjoy stay in your hotel.

you get what you pay for and this hotel does not market itself as luxury. The tram stop is also conveniently right outside the hotel making travel to the centre easy. This is necessary as its quite far away. The service was friendly and no complaints there. the rooms however are dated, and there are no added luxuries or additions.... More

The room was well equipped with a small fridge, couch and tv and was clean. The tram also stops right out the front to travel into the city centre. However we were a little disappointed with the service of staff when checking in and the fact that our showers were fairly cold.

Our 2 year old was planned for surgery on a monday morning at 08 am, since we live on the other side of the fjord and monday morning traffic in the oslo area is notorious I decided to spend the night here. The room was as small and spartan as I have seen in years, but the price reflected this,... More

The hotel is located far away the center, but very good communication. Friendly service, clean, small rooms. Very tasty and rich breakfasts. There were no problems. Little time spent in the hotel, because we visited the center. We recommend to anyone looking for a cheap (relatively) hotel.

I recently stayed at Hotel Gaustad for 2 nights. The hotel is situated at the end of tram lines 17 and 18 and since they run past the central train station, getting to the hotel in 10-15 mins is no problem from downtown. The rooms are clean, quiet and nicely furnished. The baths are oversized with heated towel racks and... More

Just back from 3 days skiing / snowboarding at Tryvann Vinterpark, just outside Oslo. The Gaustad was one of the cheapest hotels I found for myself and 3 mates and served the purpose perfectly. Although the rooms are small, they are very comfortable with flat screen tv, fridge and couch. The shower was one of the nicest I've used, especially... More
