This hotel is located between city centre and the seaside. Hotel's name is a bit hidden so quite difficult to find initially. Room is clean and with basic facility provided. Service request is attended quickly, breakfast is good with reasonably good food choices, and superb service staffs. When we checked in they were in the midst of changing to new... More

The rooms are clean. 4. Courteous staff. The shortcomings of the hotel: 1. In the rooms it is impossible to adjust the temperature, air conditioning is central, in our... More

Good location in central Oslo. Hotel seems a bit tired, however some work was being carried out during my stay. One of the lifts wasn't working which meant incredibly long waits - easier and quicker to take the stairs. Buffet breakfast was nice in the central atrium.

Fast and efficient check in. Small, simple and clean rooms, perfect located. Good Breakfast. Nice staff. As there are refurbishing one elevator, it’s better to take the stairs to go down at the “peak hours” , much quicker.

A very functional hotel in an excellent location at the heart of Oslo. Clean and comfortable room. Good service and friendly staff. Satisfactory breakfast. Noise level is rather high if you are on the lower floors.

Stayed one night as an conference/seminar participant. Received an upgraded room which was very nice. Bed, pillow and duvet was of high standards. The bathroom was nice and felt brand new unfortunately the shower had too litle pressure. The temperature in the room was 24-26 degrees at arrival and I struggled to lower it. Finally I had to open the... More

Typical business hotel in the center of Oslo, with friendly and helpful staff, but also nice for other guest. In walking distance of many of Oslo's sights, buses, trams, trains and shopping center. All rooms have recently been renovated, and most bathrooms, and I find the hotel to be quiet. Free wifi,and free bike rent. Parking is possible but a... More

We stayed here for three nights in September-14 and were very happy with the location. It's just a few steps to the Karl Johan and a couple of minutes walk to the harbour. Lifts went through renovations when we stayed, but it didn't affect us really. The room was not very big (two adults, two kids) but beds were comfortable... More

Dear Cecilia B, thank you for your review and praise. As you say - our atrium rooms are very quiet - in spite of being in the middle of the city. But we also have rooms facing the street which are also very nice. Come see us soon again, best regards Kristoffer More

Stayed 1 night towards end of August 2014. Location is good – handy for National Theatre subway station and also for walking to Karl Johans gate and Aker Brygge. Hard to say what it was but it felt as if the hotel was part way through a refurbishment programme. Hallways felt dark and slightly claustrophobic, lift area felt as if... More

Spent two nights at this hotel and would highly recommend it. Great staff always ready to lend a hand, and the location is perfect for exploring Oslo's city centre and harbour. Be warned, it's very close to the city hall, which houses a 49-bell carillon which plays every hour - from early in the morning until late at night. Other... More
