Really nice room - classy and quality decor including marble bathroom - if a bit of an odd layout (TV and bed are at opposite ends of the room.). Breakfast is good - plenty of variety and a nice restaurant. Location is superb for central station and the main high street.

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...

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
