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

This pensjonat is truly a very well kept secret...tucked away in a lovely residential street, yet central to discover Oslo....the staff could not be more helpful, polite and friendly, nothing is too much trouble and they are very well informed about things to do and see and also how best to travel around the city. The communal areas are gorgeous... More

Stayed 14 September 2014 room 303 - shared bathroom (there were 4 rooms on our floor, not sure how many used the bathroom but there was never a problem with someone else using it when we wanted it). Our room was on the 3rd floor, 2.5 flights of stairs. Check-in was quick, receptionist was pleasant and kind. She (or another... More

I had a single room with an en-suite bathroom here: the room was cosy, neat and clean, as well as quiet (it is true that the tram tracks are close by, but the service does not run late into the night so I did not find it a problem for me when it came to sleeping). Breakfast was continental with... More

I stayed by myself in a room here in mid September, it was a really good price for a nice accommodation. There was a pretty garden around the house and I was able to walk to everywhere I wanted to see in Oslo. The room had a nice big window onto the garden. There was 2 bathrooms in the hall... More

We stayed in the balcony room of Ellingsens for a couple of nights in late September 2014 and it was a dream after having traveled for several days straight without a good night's rest. Great beds, clean rooms and tranquil environment. The basic room was adorable with a few nice touches and having an in-room refrigerator and kettle was a... More

It is a beautiful quite neighborhood and is conveniently located close to almost all the important places worth visiting in the city. The service and the room at the place was quite impressive. Loved the breakfast spread they had. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable and most importantly help to catch on a peaceful little sleep. The staffs are... More

So, I know this place gets a lot of good reviews, but I hated it. Plusses: -Nice Neighborhood. -The breakfast room is well decorated Actual Experience: The pictures on the website show unique nice rooms, but our experience was anything but. Our room (we shared a bathroom in the hall) was a shoebox. There was almost no space for us... More
