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).

Got a big and cool room, with a big bath. And a very good bed with lots of pillows. Nice design all over the hotel. This is probaly the best hotell i have stayed in! Good location as well. Breakfast was in the middle range.

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...

GG is a typical ambitious boutique/design hotel with dark corners, impractical light switches and extremely small toilets/bathrooms. However; This hotel has a funky bar with proper cocktails and bartenders with the usual tatooes (is tatooes compulsory for waitors and bartenders??). The breakfast is solid and healthy with proper coffee and lovely staff. The reception staff is very helpful and the... More

The interior design in the hotel is very nice. Service at the reception was very friendly and helpful. Cleanliness in the bathroom was only superficially. Service at breakfast could be better regarding refilling.

This hotel is nicely situated in the old town, very close to everything yet on a quiet street close to the harbor. The hotel has a great staff, extremely nice front desk team, and everything was very professionally run. The rooms were well situated, very clean, and technologically advanced for convenience. The breakfast focused on quality and not necessarily quantity,... More

I travelled to Oslo with my family that included two little children. This is a modern hotel that is well located in Oslo with a short walk to Karl Johan Street, as well as the Akerhus Fortress which is literally a five minute walk from the hotel and an absolute must for any visitor to Oslo. The hotel is close... More

The price was competitive for Oslo, and the services as well as the staff were superb, I travel weekly all over the world and thus far First Hotel does the best job at personalizing and doing just enough of the extras to make them a consistent choice for me. rooms are always clean, good amenities, and water pressure (nothing worse...

Location of the hotel is very good. It is close to railway, to main street and port were you can find some good restaurants. About rooms. They are not so big, but comfortable, walls in the toilet are made from glass so You should be ready for that, if you are traveling not alone. I am not sure that this... More
