Good location quite near to the cental station. Although the previous reviews were right, there are lots of "suspicious" people hanging around in the neighbourhood... The room on the 6th floor was nice, it was a bit cold in the beginning (energy saving..???), but the radiator did its job after I adjusted it. I was really happy with the breakfast,... More

The hotel is average. Not too fancy, but OK and at a reasonable price in a city with so big prices. The rooms are clean and breakfast is OK. The problem is that the rooms facing the main street are very noisy especially in weekends and the rooms in the back are facing a interior courtyard and a multistory car... More

For a budget hotel the breakfast is good other than that and its central location in the city it is hard to have anything else positive to say about it. Well internet is also good. It is very noisy especially in the evening if you get a room facing the street. Shady characters hang around the front all evening which... More

Nice enough hotel, just a shame about the surrounding area and increasing number of immigrants sleeping on the streets outside. Can also be noisy due to the bars down the street. Hotel itself is nice, clean and great breakfast items in the morning.

I used this hotel some years ago, and that time I was more than happy with it because of the central location and small, but new and modern rooms. The hotell is still near the railway station and city center, and the rooms are also still ok. But two things have changed that made me not enjoy my stay. There... More

Had a reward night at this hotel. Got a nice quiet room with window towards the backyard. I understand that the rooms facing the other way have big noise problems. Stay away from the streets outside at night. To many bad people there at thus area of Oslo. Room was fine for a budget hotel.

A short walk from the central station I found this hotel to have reasonable sized, clean rooms. Staff were friendly and the breakfast was much better than I expected at this price point with a great range of options. Good value for money and better than I was expecting.

Close to the city train, bus and airport express train - this is a simple, clean hotel for the cheap business men. Yes, it's close to the lower down town - but that's it. No good restaurants, no friendly nightlife, not even got shopping. Lots of prostitutes, druggies and other scary types, and you can, I promise, only take taxi... More

Very central hotel close to Oslo S. Some noise at night, but that's what you have to expect staying at a hotel in the city center. Bring ear plugs. Rooms were comfortable & clean, though the maids could have washed the bottom of the walls (black shoe marks etc.) to make a better impression. Doors to the working rooms (where... More

A good location in a middle of city center. Good connections with public transportation and to the Airport. Breakfast included in price was good and versatile. We got an attic room with roof windows. Nice view, but it was pretty hot weather in Oslo and the room was very warm. A fan had been useful especially at night. A little... More
