Sorry to say this..cause we had great expectations to this Hotel in the centre of Oslo. It's dark and worn down, could have been chic if maintained.. We stayed at 206- awakened by neighbour-room early in the morning- also even by the cleaners who started to vakuum before 9.30 on a Saturday morning....Beds though, are excellent:) Roof terrace ok. Breakfast... More

Comfortable bed, good breakfast and friendly staff. Very small bathroom, I could hardly move in the shower. And there was no coffee making facilities in the room which was a big letdown. The room was properly cleaned but could use a bit of a makeover (carpet stains, scratches etc.). Decent hotel but I expected a higher standard overall.

The rooms are very stylish, insanely comfortable beds, all the amenities you could want, although the tea and coffee facilities are in the lobby not the room. Its in a good location, easy walk to most attractions and the train station, very close to... More

From guest reception to the bar, everyone was friendly and helpful. My room was ultra modern, everything in working order and comfortable. Looking forward to returning. Close proximity to everything. The shower was most impressive! I would stay here again and never bother to look for any other hotel in Oslo. The free breakfast was an awesome perk!

We stayed for Three Nights and met different persons working in the reception. They met us in an open and personal way, still professional. The same apply to the persons working in the restaurant. We were impressed by the way it was designed.

Lovely staff at reception. Location was very convenient for getting in and out of Oslo and seeing sights. We had a great stay. Breakfast was great, lots of choice and helpful staff. Bed was super comfortable. I would stay again.

Stayed their for a couple of nights visiting Oslo, it is in an ideal location with walking distance to everything. Staff at front desk and at the restaurant for breakfast were lovely and attentive, couldn't fault them! Only downfall was I wish they had a kettle in the room for us to make tea and coffee.
