We stayed 2 nights at this hotel on a family trip with 11 members ranging in age from 8 - 80. Everyone enjoyed the hotel. 1.) Location: Fair. It's slightly off the beaten path. Its in the Frognar neighborhood. There are many old, but well kept apartment buildings. The neighborhood is Q U I E T and Safe! It's 1.5... More

Located in the Embassy district of Oslo, we found this to be a convenient and peaceful location, that felt safe and within easy access to the city centre. A bonus is that it’s a fifteen minute walk from the Vigeland Park. At the top of Gabels gate you have the 31 bus which runs every ten minutes or so and... More

The hotel is situated in a quiet residential street in the Frogner district of Oslo. It is easily reached with the westbound number 13 tram. The nearest stop is Skillebekk from where it is a very short walk to the hotel. I had a single room which I found spacious enough for my needs. It was clean and comfortable. I... More

We have stayed some days in Oslo. This Hotel is placed in a quiet area and it is very well communicated. And you have the possibility of dining there if you wish to. I would recommend it without doubt.

This quaint and beautiful hotel is located slightly away from Oslo city centre but is still easily accessible via the city tram service which runs regularly. If you are arriving at Gardermoen Airport in Oslo take the Flytoget Airport Express train to the city. Get off at the National Theatre (Nationaltheatret) station and walk 5-6 minutes to the closest tram... More

See above. I forgot; the area is more or less residential and thus very quiet despite the very central location. Also close to a big park - Vigelandsparken which is very famous. Also close to the King`s residence - Slottet. R Other restaurants, no problem.

I just got back from Norway and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on 2 separate occasions. The location is great a 20-30 mins walk to downtown. 20 minutes to frogner park which is a must! The sculptures, the greenery and flower beds are fabulous. The embassy's in the area are stunning. Breakfast and dinner are included in the... More

Dear guest from Brooklyn, I suppose many will agree that it is not an easy task to satisfy a New Yorkers taste, hence it is very pleasant for me to read that we did it anyway! The only note I would like to make in reply your beautiful review is that the evening meal (which we in no way call... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, asking for a room with a balcony. Clean, quiet, leafy street close to the tramlines into Oslo (number 13) breakfast was great fully cooked eggs and bacon, fruits, muesli, make your own waffles for teatime, buffet supper at 6pm and just in case you're still peckish soup and bread at 10pm. Fruit, tea and... More

Good location, right between park with sculpturs and Aker brygge (20 min walking distance to each side). Breakfast is a kind of standard scandinavian buffet, with quite large number of varieties. Small evening meal is available for guest for free. Rooms a different in new and old part of the building. New one looks quite mordern. Though conditioner was not... More

Hello to you in St. Petersburg. Thank you for choosing our hotel and the review of course. The parking places are 19 but it still can be challenging to find one available, so well planning of car parking is definitely a good idea, although it is very difficult generally in Oslo unless you are willing to pay over 300 NOK...
