Truly a great find. The hotel is a little out from the centre in an up-market and quiet neighbourhood. Buses are virtually outside the door and take you downtown or to other sights such as the Kon Tiki and Fran museums - in just a few minutes. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful and were... More

The rooms are small but enough for a single person; but it was really unimagineable, that the night-auditor is working together with cab-organisation. What means, they ordered cabs with expectation that the guests will pay a unusual rate for some kind of waiting. If the guest refuse this, than the nightauditor is closing the hotel door (happened early in the... More

All what they did in my room every day was putting new towels, they did not even make the bed; very fast and superficial cleaning, no refill of shower gel, minibar and coffee, I always had to ask and go downstairs to get them. The lights in the room did not work properly. The location is good, the breakfast is... More

The hotel is located in a upscale borough of Oslo, with frequent bus connection, only 10 minutes from the city centre. Clean and spacious rooms, very comfortable beds and pillows, reliable wifi connection. What I like most was the front yard where I could have my coffee and smokes! Breakfast is is more than ok. Recommended.

The Frogner House Hotel Norum is housed in a wonderful art nouveau building in a quiet neighborhood with numerous upscale shops and restaurants in short walking distance. Public transportation to all the sights is just outside the door. Rooms are very comfortable and the staff is extremely pleasant and accommodating. I almost forgot to mention the very nice and extensive... More

I came from Gothenburg during my motorcycle tour, and booked a room at Hotel Norum because it seemed pretty close to my destination in Oslo , the famous Viking Ships Museum on Bygdoey, so it was indeed by chance I found this very satisfying place. And a piece of advice, when coming from Sweden to Oslo, you’ll have to pass... More

This hotel is in a good location, the breakfast was very good and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Unfortunately we discovered stains on the matress and the sheets were thin enough to see these underneath. It was also a little hot in the room; a fan would be a useful addition.

The hotel has no aircon or ventilation and in the summer the rooms get very hot. When opening the windows there is disturbance from street noise. In july yhis part of the town is very quiet since it's mainly residential.

The Hotel Norum (formerly from several years ago The Rica) was a pleasant surprise. The room was spacious, well laid out, and thoughtfully decorated. The staff were helpful and friendly, especially the person in charge of the breakfast. The location is not at the center of tourist activity in Oslo (a plus, maybe), but rather in what is perhaps the... More

This beautiful old building is a charming hotel. We stayed here as a family of 4 for 2 nights and I stayed on for an other night in a single room. Having traveled for work in Asia for nearly 15 years I might be what you call spoiled for luxury in hotels and this is not luxury inthat sense, but... More
