It felt like this hotel was under staffed. The staff were not interested in the guests and could not understand Swedish/English. Breakfast was good but many of the plates ran out of food. Evening buffe was not so tasty.

I stayed at the Gabelshus for a couple of nights at the tail end of a long, multi-country business trip. The nights spent here were the best of the trip - and I would rank this hotel among the best of any small hotels I've stayed at in 15 years of travelling. Let me be clear - the Gabelshus is... More

It's a very personal, atmospheric and special hotel not far from the city center in Oslo. The atmoshere is friendly, quiet and generous. The breakfast is very good and in addition to this, they serve wafles and even a hot buffet in the evening every day. This is included in the payment of the hotel! So if you want, you... More

Cosy hotel with atmosphere. Very friendly staff. Not the most centrally located hotel in Oslo, but still not very far from the city center (Oslo is not a big city). Delicious breakfast, and later in the day coffe/tea, cake, dinner. You really feel they care for you.

Approx. 15' walking distance (or 5' bus) from popular Aker Brygge, the hotel experience was good to say the least. Although the room was very small, included in the price was a rich breakfast and dinner buffet, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Recomended.

Dear Dirk, As you noted, the room/bathroom size varies at the hotel within the same category. It is part of having been built inside an old, charming and historical building. What matters though is the service, the offer and the people that meet our guests every day and make a their day as pleasant as possible being away from home... More

The food is AWESOME, it has a lot of organic and local options and you can pretty much go get food whenever you want during the day. I loved the environmental friendly and organic options, both food-wise and otherwise, and the hotel is probably great for a relaxing weekend getaway in a quiet neighbourhood. The hotel offers a lot of... More

Stayed 1 night, cleaning was really bad, with dust in the rooms, specially under the bed, in corners. Hair rests in shower. Asked for another room, but it was not possible. Breakfast was ok, but not much to jump for joy for.

Nice and charming hotel located in a quite area, still close to the center of the city (walking distance or tram close by). Friendly and helpful staff, good service, excellent breakfast. In the summer you can relax with (or without) a cold beer on the terrace in front of the hotel.
