Brilliant place to stay! As I am English, to me this is the equivalent to the Premier Inn - fantastic room, bed and sleep - with a Scandinavian twist. If you are looking for an 'authentic' Scandinavian adventure then pay the money and stay elsewhere but if you want a good room to explore from with good service then stay... More

I was here for a business meeting, including dinner, and I stayed overnight. The conference rooms are somewhat "hidden", and you must walk through the hotel room corridors to get there. There are signs, though. The business lunch, refreshments and the dinner were all very good. The hotel room was clean, newly decorated and nice, and the location are exeptional... More

SUMMARY: This is a large hotel occupying almost an entire city block, above the shops and directly opposite Oslo’s central station – in the heart of the city shopping area. The rooms are small but reasonably well laid out; service was efficient and welcoming - I'd happily stay here again (and indeed have already stayed here twice). THE GOOD: The... More

Lovely, modern hotel (ala Hyatt, Hilton), which had just been renovated and re-branded. The hotel room had all the mod-cons, little luxuries, and was impeccably clean. Located just steps away from Central Station, it is the perfect location. I had just come off a 14-hour tour of the fjords and didn't arrive at the hotel until after midnight. Arriving via... More

I had the pleasure of staying here in August 2014 and would definitely return to this hotel on any future trips. It's in a great location and the rooms are clean, spacious, and very comfortable. The best part of the hotel is the breakfast -- wow! I awoke every morning to a delightful array of fresh fruits, cheeses, and breads.... More

The room was big and confortable! The only thing in the room that was really upsetting was the air conditioner just above the bed and with no possibility to turn it off!

just in front of the central rail station and a block from the opera and the tourist part of the city. So convenient, not a luxury hotel just basic but good. you can know everything by foot and take the train to another city or to oslo airport just in front.

Oslo is one of the most expensive cities I've visited so it was a nice surprise to find a nice hotel with wonderful location at a reasonable price, € 120.00 per night. The staff is very friendly and polite.
