This is a very nice hotel in a perfect location for access to the main train station and the heart of the city. We stayed here in July during a very warm spell and while the rooms was warm, we requested a fan which made the room generally comfortable. The room was an average sized standard room, but the bathroom... More

This hotel is situated in the centre of Oslo, close to all the main sites. It is right next to the Train station and a 5 min walk from the main bus station and attached to a shopping mall. There is a very good selection at breakfast and overall the staff are very friendly and helpful. The only downside is... More

Byporten Hotel is the closest hotel to the Oslo train station. Very convenient especially when it is raining or when arriving late by train. The staff are all very helpful and courteous especially Ms Julia - who is most professional and efficient. The breakfast at the Egon restaurant is very very good. The rooms especially those on the 5th floor,... More

The hotel is very well located, next to the central station. It is inside a mall, and is on a big square with many restaurants. City tours also pass just in front. The rooms are spacious and renovated. There is a very tiny kids' room. The breakfast is served in a next-door restaurant, with great choice, great variety and great... More

This is the most confusing hotel to arrive at from the Oslo train station on a Sunday. The top door just does not open, and pushing either of the buttons on the intercom bring no result. OK you think to yourself there must be another entrance, and there is, but you guessed it - locked again. Pushing the intercom buttons... More

Hi RostrevorMichael Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am sorry you found it difficult to enter our hotel on the Sunday you arrived. We do have two other doors that you could have entered from, but I understand you found it difficult to find them. Even though the Shopping center is closed on Sundays, the... More

Hotel was in a good location - right next to train station. Rooms are small and basic. No kettle, no safe. And although clean felt a little too basic. They are currently renovating and initially we were put on 5th floor just below the renovation which was a bit noisy. Asked to be moved which they did next day when... More

Stayed here for 5 days while visiting from the states. Would DEFINITELY stay here again. Maybe not the place for a romantic getaway, but if you're trying to pack Oslo into a few days, this is the place. PAINFULLY pleasant staff, so helpful, very nice, and no wait to speak with them. Rooms were satisfactory, not too small, with a... More

great location by the Oslo Sentraal station, especially good when traveling with Flytoget from the airport. Good breakfast, although it's next door to the hotel. The building itself is renovated from something that was not originally a hotel, and this is visible in the rooms. Nevertheless, for the business traveler needing quick access to central Oslo + a good stay,... More
