I was on a business trip and stayed in this hotel for few weeks. Free evening meals are a really good bonus. Rooms are quite small, but fine for me. Bathrooms, on the other hand, are extremely small, basically - when showering you have to be very careful not to hit the walls or shower stall. Some rooms have a... More

Hello and thank you for the review. I can agree with most of you were saying, but still some supply with comments: the sauna and the steam bath are unisex but there are two wardrobes in the relax area - one for men and one for women. The size of some bathrooms are small indeed but we have a large... More

I have never stayed at a hotel with such a low level of security. The door to my room did not lock automatically, and it was difficult to turn the knob knowing when the door was locked. At 6.30 in the morning a stranger opened the door when I was asleep and I felt offended. I approached the staff who... More

Dear Nina. It was upsetting to hear that a stranger entered your room while you were asleep. The keycard system is very new and modern at the hotel. It was installed in 2013 and meets all the safety procedures including fire-safety regulations. I have been asking the staff in the reception if anyone has been in contact with you and... More

Had two very comfortable Nights in this attractive hotel. Easy to get cabs everywhere - room very comfortable and best bed I have slept in! Unfortunately forgot to give us enough towels but no big deal. Buffett breakfast was practical and good if you got up on the early side. Thoroughly enjoyed brown cheese on toast for breakfast with great... More

Lovely looking hotel in a quiet area. Local transport gets you in the city centre in less than 15 minutes. One small issue i had with my first room was quickly and efficiently dealt with. The staff were the highlight, especially Sona, for whom nothing was too much trouble and always with a smile on her face. Outstanding service. The... More

The Hotel has an oldish, but quality style. They serve afternoon tea every night for the hotel guests. The breakfast was good. The room was not too big, but clean with quality bathrooms. The hotel is situated in Skillebekk, in a quiet neighborhood. It’s a 5 minute walk to several nice pubs and restaurants in the Frogner area.

A lovely, surprisingly affordable hotel in a lovely area of Oslo. The service is friendly and efficient, the rooms are nice and clean and the food is varied and good. The area is peaceful and transport links are good. All in all a lovely stay.
