I was here for a business meeting and probably would've just left after looking at the lunch buffet if it weren't for the super friendly staff working there. They are really nice and a pleasure to talk to. The problem with this hotel is the food. This day and age you do need proper food at expensive places like Norway,... More

Very disappointing. OK, I do not want to nag, but a 4-star hotel that is more average than average. No tea kettle in the room, and if you need an ironing bord you have to go to the basement... I was told that superior rooms have it, but HEY, so I am staying at a 3-star room? How am I... More

The hotel is situated a bit away from the centre of Oslo, however it is very convenient to get there from the airport - a short bus ride and you are there. I was attending a business meeting and the hotel was just steps away from the meeting place. There is a metro station almost beside the hotel and you... More

I was here two days. The room (426) seemed to be very spacious, neat and clean . They had forgotten to put the shower gel. but this was quickly arranged when I asked about them . The hotel had typical carpet cleaning odor in the room and the hallway . The room had carpet all covered. There was some dirty... More

The location will be pretty bad for tourists and most people staying here during the week are on business in the immediate area. The area consists of offices mostly and a lot of traffic. It is close to Valle Hovin stadium that hosts large outdoor concerts. The check-in staff are polite and efficient. The rooms vary quite a lot from... More

Good standard hotel, meeting all the requirements of a business and leisure traveller. Nice room, quite new and refurbished (at least on 8th/9th level), soft and comfortable bed. Complete breakfast buffet - just great to start into the new day! Location - close to businesses in Helsfyr, and also just a 5 minute walk from the flybussen airport bus station... More

We had a very bad experience most of all because of the rudness of the people at the Front Desk. The room was clean but very unconfortable. The rates are very high for what service and rooms offer. Will never reccomend this hotel.

The hotel was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. Room heater looked as if it was damaged but as wasn't needed was not bothered. As was travelling with a tour bus did not checkout transport into the centre. Staff were helpful and there was a free newspaper in English.

Poeple are not very enthousiatic! Room are very clean. The hotel is recent! No air conditionning and the noise of the highway avoid that you could sleep with the open windows. Food is OK but very expensive. A beer is served at 15€

The Helsfyr hotel is well located close to various businesses and on the road to the airport. The city is not too far away. Rooms are not large but clean and well equipped. One thing I don't quite understand is why hotels in Scandinavia don't have black-out curtains? In summer you have sunlight in the rooms at the most ungodly... More
