I really enjoyed my stay here and this B&B was half the price of other Oslo accommodations that I had checked out. My bed was heavenly – you’re pinned down by a thick duvet overlaid with a light quilt, plus the large pillows include a faux fur-covered pillow, which is really comfy. Breakfast was the enjoyable smorgasbord of cold cuts,... More

Ellingsens Pensjonat is clearly the best "bed and breakfast" in Oslo. The staff is friendly and serviceminded and the rooms are bright and pleasant. The location is Perfect in one of the best neighborhoods in Oslo, and Close to one of the best shopping streets. Walking distance to the Royal Castle and center. Best recommendation.

I had to stay there only for one night. I wrote an email before my arrival to Oslo with questions, and they were kindly replied immediately, full of information.That gave me a good impression prior to my arrival. The staff (girl in reception and also the one preparing breakfast) were fantastic. Perhaps, it was actually them who account for most... More

I have visitingEllingsens Pensjonat 10 times the last two years. It is value for money. Great location, friendly staff, nice breakfast, cozy clean rooms, refrigerator and water boiler in the room. I recommend it warmly.

I stay at Ellingsens often, and I feel so good when I open the door. A very nice atmosphere, so cosy decorated in a french consistent style. Very cleaned, and rooms nicely decorated. I like the common kitchen where I can prepare a small meal and relax in the sofa and have the fireplace on. The people who works there... More

I am a frequent guest at Ellingsen, and can highly recommend this crossover between hotel and hostel. The staff is very warm and friendly. Rooms are small, but clean and cozy. Breakfast is not included in the room price, but very generous and fresh. Ellingsen is located in the heart of Oslo - communications are exellent.

The place is cheap, for Norwegian standards, but that shows itself in what you get. A very small room, and a weird basket with slippers and sweets at ridiculous prices. Also, the toilet and showers are separate from the room in most cases. Book an integrated room if you find that annoying. Also be aware that the walls are very... More

I was very impressed with Ellinsens Pensjonat - right from my first enquiries that were answered promptly and with such friendly and personal advice that I expected a family set-up with one or two rooms only. I was looking for a simple and affordable room and did not expect the comfort of the room I was given - spacious, well... More

We weren't quite expecting this. The hotel is definitely a cross between a hostel and a hotel but definitely not a bed and breakfast as the name suggests. It's actually quite a large hotel with lots of rooms and floors. The hotel was in a good location with a supermarket not far away and a good cafe for breakfast with... More

Its location isn't ideal, but it suited our needs for just the one night. It is in a pretty street, and there was a Mexican restaurant close by. Thankfully a staff member carried our cases up the 3 flights of stairs, and a tradesman performed the same service next morning, otherwise it could have been a bit difficult. A pleasant... More
