The great location of this hotel made it easy to walk to a number of tourist sites. While the room was not exactly large, there was room for our luggage to remain out during our stay. We were on an upper floor and appreciated the security requirement that room cards are required to operate the elevator. The breakfast buffet was... More

I have stayed many times at this hotel when visiting Oslo on business and a few times on pleasure. The location is right in the centre of Oslo and also very convenient being close ( 5 minutes) to the Airport Express Train station Nasjonal Teateret. The staff are always pleasant and welcoming. The rooms have the necessary facilities and are... More

We were there for three nights. The hotel has optimal location, close to almost everything. The rooms are right, with everything you need. The breakfast is great, with a very large assortisment of products and in a very nice hall under a crystal roof. The price was also great, as we booked using Bargain option. Things that may be improved... More

The desk staff was awesome. They made great recommendations that helped us avoid a few travel disasters. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic. Overall I can't complain. We were looking for a low overhead place to stay and we were not disappointed. It's a few blocks from the harbor and the new part of Oslo where many trendy restaurants... More

Great hotel in middle of Oslo. Hotel staff are very friendly and the rooms are clean and quite. the rooms are small, but that is expected in Norway and is quite common. Breakfast is great with lots of selection. Have stayed twice and will stay again - no complaints - awesome hotel!

I love it when the hotel bed is so good that I regret that I do not have enough time to spend there. This is the case for this hotel. Breakfast was served with supergood coffee, fruit, smoothie, youghurt and bread. Room was ok. Good wifi. Excellent location of hotel, short distance to everything.

My room was clean, bright, and comfortable. Free wi-fi. I stayed in March, and didn't have a problem with the temperature, although Oslo was enjoying nice weather. This hotel compared favourably with others that I've stayed at in Oslo. The location is excellent. Absolutely everything is within walking distance and 5 minutes to Nationaltheatret station.

The rooms in this hotel are very cold and are "centrally controlled" and cannot be adjusted by a guest in the room.
