Location is very central. Parking is available under the hotel, but it is extremely overpriced for eur 45 a day. Checking in and out are really fast. Reception staff was polite but not very friendly ... not unfriendly at all, but a little as the hotel itself: very big, very busy, very unpersonal. They were very helpful with printing papers...

After a trip including many hotels in Scandinavia I felt that this extremely large and institutional hotel was the worst. The room was extremely dark and without trash basket in the room or bath mat. As noted by others, bathroom floor and shower are extremely slippery when wet. When we complained that the room was too cold because the air... More

We stayed at the Clarion Hotel Royal Christiania on two occasions for a total of three nights and could not have been more pleased. Just two minutes from the Oslo South rail station, its central location is ideal for exploring Oslo. If you want quiet, select a room overlooking the atrium. If you don't mind a bit of a hike...

Perfect place to stay, both for business as well as pleasure. Due to large rooms, and fascilities as swimming pools and restaurants nearby, I would also recommend this hotel for families looking for a place to stay in the heart of Oslo.

The central location, close to the train station and mass transit hubs, made this a great choice for our 3 days in Oslo. Upon our arrival we found out I had forgot to take into account that we would be arrive a day later than our departure date from the US. We were a day late but the front desk... More

Reception staff very nice and the breakfast is excellent. Room service is provided by TGI Fridays and we found it good. The rooms are comfortable but dreary - there is a big difference between drab and neutral. Unfortunately Housekeeping is poor in that whilst tea and coffee making facilities are supposed to be available, milk is not replenished and spoons,... More

Minibar was empty, the remote for the tv did not work and the cleaning staff very so noisy that I didn't need an alarmclock. At the reception there were not enough on hand to accommodate a bus load of tourists as well as ordinary hotel guests. The paint is peeking, there is no heating in the bathroom floor and soaps...

In the middle of Oslo city centre next to the railwaystation and the Airport Express Train. It is a bit of at "hotelmaschine", efficient and clean. Very good breakfast as well as lunch buffet. Ask for a room at the back since there is a tram crossroad just outside that is rather noisy as from 5-6 o'clock

We used this hotel for one night on a trip through some of the north European capitals. It is a very nice and "stylish" hotel; staff is friendly breakfast is very good (if you pick the right coffee machine :-) - there is one that I guess to be filled with pre-brewed coffee - not so good - and another...

I stayed in Clarion in a sunny week of June. Excellent weather to use the terrace, with sofas (need some imporvements...), a glass of wine and an excellent meeting place for business. Breakfast is good, although crowdy..., rooms are small, very small... Good for business, altough they need to improve more on room size - trend is not japanese-style...
