...there is a lot of street noise, and the rooms are not air conditioned, so opening the window will assure that you will not get a good night's sleep. This was our experience and it was unpleasant. First impressions: we did not feel welcomed by the front desk staff, and the rooms are small. Best amenities: complimentary bikes and an... More

Stayed 1 night on route to the Arctic. Well located, within walking distance of both the station and the waterfront. Room not very large and lack of storage space for clothing but that is probably standard for central Oslo. Breakfast buffet included within the price. It opened at 6 am and was an amazing spread with ever item labelled.

This is a very convenient hotel, and did not break the bank, unlike the restaurant bills in Norway! The issues I had with the room were: there is no window, but a doorway, which is locked. Why? because it does not lead to a balcony, but out into thin air. It cannot be opened for ventilation. There is a button... More

Stayed in a doubleroom on 5 th floor. Room was small but clean and modern. Not mutch space for baggage, so if you're planning on a longer stay you should ask for at larger room. Perfect hotel for a weekend or shorter getaways, as the location istedenfor perfect right in the city center with everything it has to offer. For... More

Excellent location with clean, modern yet small rooms. It's a great weekend base and the staff are all helpful and very friendly. I'd definitely stay again here as it's quick and convenient to get everywhere in the city.

The hotel is quite new and the location is perfect. Close to everything. The rooms are very small. I even had a superior room so wonder how the regular rooms are. The view from the sixth floor is very nice. Huge breakfast with several choices of fruit, smoothies and even omelette on demand!! Will recomend this to business travelleres.

This hotel is a modern one, centrally located in Oslo. It is a short walk from the Stortinget metro-stop, and in walking distance from the central station. The reception of the hotel is quite unassuming and small, but the service was very good. The room I got was not a very big room, but it was a wheel chair accessible... More

Great location in the middle of Oslo center. Great breakfast but rooms are very small - at least the one I got. Friendly and service minded staff there - you feel wellcome. You find restaurants just outside the hotels front door and Oslo main street is 5 minutes walk away
