I had a classic decorated room with a view into a courtyard in which there was scaffolding to do maintenance. A bit dark in there all together. The bathroom was a nightmare; very small and tired; I just don't get it with these price levels. When drying off I had to open the door to the room to find space... More

This hotel is a good choice in terms of location. Very close to the central station and subway as well. Plenty of options of restaurants and shops. The room is clean, quite and comfortable. Breakfast is very good.

It's a very comfortable hotel because of it's position in the city, it's right in front of the central station and all busses, trams and the subway that conduct you all over Oslo city stop exactly at his side. The rooms probably aren't really a 4star type but it's a nice, comfortable and clean hotel, the staff is extremely kind... More

Good location, silent. Nice bed and good shower. One block from the central station, and a walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Shopping over the street and just 10 min walk to the new pier.

The hotel is a very standard budget business hotel. Stayed there for two nights in a single room. The room was recently refurbished with up to date furniture. The bed was comfortable. The windows were not sound proof as there was a lot of noise streaming in to the room during night. This affected my sleep. The bathroom, and especially... More

Stayed there one night in April 2014. Small rooms, but quite ok. What gives high scoore here is the amazing breakfast that was exceptionally good. This is probably the best I've ever seen in Europe! Scandic Hotel Eddekoppen has long been the best breakfast in Oslo, but here's a worthy competitor. Extra points for nice breakfast staff and especially a... More

This hotel has a very good location, very close to the railway station, metro station, and you can walk to most of the sights and public offices in central Oslo. The reception and the public areas are well maintained, but there are many rooms in which are old and needs some work. The rooms are also very different, in which... More

I stayed for one night in early March and prefer this hotel to Royal Christiania across the street, mainly because of room decor and breakfast. The service is good and the location obviously great in both hotels. The breakfast area is nice, not overcrowded, with a great choice of food (and newspapers too). Will be back!

The hotel is well located for the Central Station and therefore the airport express trains. The rooms are small but have everything you need. The conference facilities again are functional. The best thing about the hotel though is it's location - close to the harbour bars and restaurants and easy to het to and from the airport.

Location right across the street from Oslo's Central Station (with airport train also) is ideal, and tram, bus and metro stops in front of the hotel's entrance. But in all other respects this is an average hotel. It seems that the hotel is made ​​up of several buildings with steps and stairs between the parts. Finding your room is like... More
