Nice hotel for business trips. Intimite and kind of old fashioned. Supper buffé included - convenient when working late. Rooms have a varying standard but are in general very OK. Old and cosy building.

Hello and thank you for your positive review! We have indeed very different rooms regarding the size of the room and bathroom, and it is part of the charm of having an old building with a history back to 1912. I am glad you appreciated both the facilities of the hotel and enjoyed your stay. Welcome back when in Oslo... More

The hotel has an excellent location, walking distance to city centre and shopping areas. Great value for the money, a comfortable place to stay. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and makes you feel right at home. It is my "go to" hotel when I am in Oslo.

Reading your review sounded like music to my ears:-). You said very few words, but just as many as needed to help other visitors of Oslo make the same choice as you did! We are in the center, yet outside of the noise, traffic and more things one would´t like to see in Oslo. We have helpful and professional staff.... More

This hotel is set in the embassy area of Oslo and the diplomatic atmosphere has rubbed off. The staff are attentive and welcoming and the various lounge/eating areas are extremely comfortable. Our room was a good size and very quiet at night. The room bar was stocked with wines and beers at a reasonable price. The beds were very comfortable.... More

I've been spending one night in this... Spooky house. Once entered there's no one at the desk. The open door of the back office gives a view over two shoes... We ask for someone to checkin... No one appearing. 5 minutes after finally a friendly employee appears. To reach the room we are then forced to pass through a dining... More

I am very sorry to hear that the hotel and the room did not satisfy your expectations. I happens indeed that the receptionist on shift has to help a guest in a room, or leave the reception for a few minutes for other job related reasons, which we find as a positive thing and service mindedness.

Perfect for an oslo trip. Nice surroundings, close to the centre. Very helpful and friendly staff. Temperature in the room was fully controllable.

Oslo is an outrageously expensive city to stay in. Hotels can be average, bland and overpriced, leaving you always wondering what have you spent your money on! However, Clarion Gabelshus is worth every penny. It´s a classy old hotel, in the poshest, safest, quietest part of the city, and even if it is mid-priced, you get such value for money.... More
