This was our first trip to Oslo and we were quite excited going just two weeks before Christmas. The hotel is easy to find just a 10 minute walk from the central station. The entrance is accessed via steps into a revolving glass doorway. The steps make it difficult lifting your luggage and no doorman to help, we did not... More

Me and my fiancée love this hotel. It's dark and comfortable, and with just the right touches of fancy details. The personell at the reception and in the restaurant is both very forthcoming. The breakfast includes all the things you could want.

We decided to book our stay here based on LP recommendation as a top choice. We arrived on a Sunday at 3 pm, and there was absolutely no one there to help us with our luggage. Even the revolving door was not functioning, and we had to manually push it to move it (quite a feat when you are also... More

I have lived a quite a lot of hotel in the capitol of Norway. This is now the only hotel I use. The hotel is located in the center of Oslo. Most of the taxi drivers don't know the hotel so maybe something for the hotel to do here? Short walking distance to everything. A stunning roof terrace with food... More

We had a good stay hadn't it been for very bad cleaning of the room. Seems that only thing done, was the bed, and trashcans. We didn't get offered a new room, but asked to clean it ourselves. Which we thought was very strange.

I asked to travel agent to book for me hotel with a sports gym. Unfortunatally in reality room in the basement is very far-away to be called as a sports-gym (and hotel with a sports-gym was one of my most important priorities).

Living in the UAE I am extremely spoiled with the best hotels in the world and whenever traveling outside the UAE I do not have great expectations, even from 5* luxury hotels. However there are two things every hotel no matter what category has to manage to maintain. 1. Cleanliness and 2. Maintenance. In this case both were not given.... More

Receptionist was friendly, check-in smooth. Rooms: It's a design hotel, and they rooms were indeed stylish. Food and drink: breakfast was ok. Drinks were very good. Value for money: from time to time there are great discounts, which truly makes the value for money sky-high compared with other hotels in Oslo. The major con is the location, especially if you're...
