The hotel is minutes from the Flytoget that runs from OSL. Advise - do not take a taxi unless you enjoy seeing large volumes of money leave your wallet with little in the way of relative value in return. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean. The breakfast is good and the location is convenient.

My room was at the second floor and was outdated with regards to the inventory. I had expected more for the above average price I paid for the room. The bed was really uncomfortable as well. Last time I stayed at this hotel the room was better, so they obviously have both older and newer rooms. Scandic has an option... More

The only hotel in the area. Nice but a little bit expensive. If you are lucky and get a new refurbish room, it's quite nice. The personal is very friendly and treat you very goo. I also like the vouchers benefit.

This hotel is excellent with regards to public transport and location. Clean and basic but comfortable rooms, with a fridge (so you can store water or wine!) with ice machines - very handy. Be aware - hotel restaurant not open on Sat / Sun, so is obviously catering to business travelers! But overall, 4 mins walk to the station which... More

We arrived late at night and the receptionist received us with a big smile, the check-in was really fast. The room was big and well equipped. The next day we had a very good variety of food for breakfast, and the restaurant area was nice and comfortable. The only bad thing we saw is that the hallways needed a small... More

I stayed for one night during a business trip. The hotel was ordinary and the room could due with an update. However, I fell ill during my stay and asked for some assistance with food and drinks to the room.
