This is the go-to hotel for anyone wanting to stay in Oslo. Everything about this place screams 'brilliant' and 'perfect'. It is located right in the heart of the city centre - immediately in front of the city's main train, tram and bus interchange, and is also within walking distance of some of Oslo's most famous landmarks (the Opera House...

This is located just outside the central station of oslo which makes it easy access to and fro to airport and various other norwegian cities. Dont mind the crowds as you will never feel you are in the heart of city due to excellent... More

The hotel staff are nice and service minded. The food is great, -the breakfast is wonderful! and the room was lovely, clean and quiet. The hotel is situated right in the center of Oslo, next to the railway station, which is perfect for exploring the city.

The location is excellent, you're right by the central station, and you can reach most destinations by public transport. You're also 50 meters from Oslo's main street ( Karl Johans gate), and can walk to all the centre highlights ( Aker Brygge, stortinget etc). The rooms are tiny, and mine had a tv in a nook, as far away from... More

The hotel is located within walking distance of the train station and the main street Karl Johan. Small rooms but that's not unusual in the middle of the city. Decent prizing. The rooms are clean. The only problem for us was a broken shower head. The hotel offers free breakfast which was really, really good. You get what you pay... More
