Very friendly and helpful staff at the reception - all the time! Location is perfect, if you dont want to be too close to the centre but still enjoy many attractions nearby (walking distance). Little kitchen makes you save money for food. If you stay longer, they want you to buy your own toilet paper - no cleaning or other... More

Excellent 3 night stay here in a quiet part of Oslo. Furnishings to a very high standard, rooms bright and airy feel thanks to the big windows and colourful decor. Complimentary nespresso coffee at reception is a nice touch, and the apartment had everything we required to make the stay very comfortable, including a sofa and reasonably large circular dining...

I don't even know where to start: It was a horrible stay and absolutely not fitting for Norway. it started all with us arriving late at night and then there was in the hotel with 50 rooms no reception!

This is another lovely boutique hotel in a beautiful area of Oslo. The rooms are studious with kichenettes, a small dining area in addition to the bed etc. The staff were friendly and helpful. Shops close early in Norway so there are not many late food choices in the area but as there is a kitchen you just need to... More

Pros: excellent location, clean, calm, nice staff, decent free wifi... and prices you can't beat in Oslo. Con: the lack of a reception desk at the premises; I was lucky to have my luggage delayed, else I would've had to drag it from their main office in Skovveien (a 5-minute walk, but still not very convenient if you have large...

We've done a lot of self-catered spots over the years, and this one hits the mark for a reasonable (in Oslo terms) price. The room was *super* clean. All the crockery was in good condition. They provide washing-up liquid, which too many self-catering joints don't. Comfortable bed, though the pillows were pretty thin (seems to be a continental thing). Our... More
