Family feel to this place. Room cosy with little extras, eg shawl/rug on the chair, tea and kettle in the room. Breakfast was excellent, big choice cereals, breads meat slices, eggs fruit, fresh coffee etc. Breakfast room was also living room/salon with sofas,tv, very comfortable and welcoming. I had a room without bathroom but the shower room was very clean... More

This hotel is located outside of the downtown area of Oslo, about a 10 minute walk to the Royal Palace. It is a great value compared to other hotels in Oslo, and the location is very charming. Pros: 1) Clean rooms (205 is bright and airy, and has a beautiful balcony overlooking the garden) 2) Great location outside of the... More

Stayed here two nights, loved it! We had room 301 with views over the garden, late arrival was sorted but beware reception closes at 6pm! Great breakfast, great location, couldn't have asked for better!

Fast and friendly customer service during the booking. Nice also on arrival but it was worse beyond. Poor quality rooms, small kitchen, the noise from the street and charm that this was going to be a guest house is destroyed because they are trying to be too cool. Will not be going here again.

Stayed here for one night during a business trip. Will NEVER come back. The receptionist was very superficial and unfriendly. Stayed in a room in the basement, with a small kitchen (totally useless) and almost no window. Almost no natural light! The room was cold, smelled like rotten onions, the carpet was dirt (tiny bugs running all over the place)... More

The pension is well located, and the place itself if quite nice, but they overbooked and put us in the basement (instead of one of the picturesque rooms we were promised). The room had a kitchenette (which is useful, since this is Norway, where eating a pizza and a coke are 40 euros), but was mouldy and actually slightly dirty... More

The receptionist and the other stuffs is very friendly to us. The living or waiting area is clean and tidy. Our room is cleaned and very cozy to stay. The place is very quite and it you feel like home. The breakfast is ready on time. The tram or train station going to the central of Oslo is 1 minute... More

Trying too hard to be trendy! First of all this is not a place for people with any form of infirmity or with heavy luggage. Too many very very steep steps and no lift. The B&B is an old block of apartments converted to a B&B so you have to accept that not everything is exactly uniform, which in itself... More

No problems arriving - even after hours they had supplied required security code in advance and it was easy. Room was basic but perfectly adequate. Shared facilites clean - I was in low season and it didn't feel like it was very full. Location is great as long as you're not lazy - less than 10 minutes walk gets you... More
