and very well taken care of during my stay here. Free breakfast, coffee & tea all day, free dinner and you could even make your own waffles if you wanted an afternoon snack.You may not appreciate all this unless you step out and start paying for food at a cafe or a restaurant. This is a very expensive country. If... More

The building is pretty and old but under a lot of construction. Two floors are closed. The electricity was turned off on our flour for hours. There is a lot of noise! The people are pleasant. The food exactly the same as all Clarions. Ok. Missing stuff from day to day and broken coffee machine. Food is free that's good.... More

We stayed just one night at this hotel at the start of a visit to Norway. We were first given a room on the top floor - a kind of attic space. Not only was it terribly stuffy (on a hot August night) but there was a low beam across the room (you would definitely give your head a good... More

Friendly hotel - good atmosphere - on thing that is rare in Oslo is the dinner which was included in my room rate. Good value compared to many other Oslo hotels in comparable locations. Ask to get explanations on his to use the room key because you have to lock the room when leaving.

Dear Jerome, Thank you for staying at Hotel Gabelshus. The light evening meal we offer complimentary is one of the unique selling point that all Clarion Collection hotels in Nordic countries offer. We do not claim it to be a full dinner but rather a convenient alternative for those, who choose to stay at the hotel instead of going out... More

Overall, we enjoyed staying here. The hotel is beautifully decorated and in a very nice neighborhood. The breakfast buffet was great, but the dinner buffet was really awesome and saved us a lot of money vs. having to go out to restaurants in this expensive city. The window in our room did not open very much and it was very... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your stay and the nice review. In old days the building of the hotel Gabelshus was a guesthouse, that had separate bedrooms but one big bathroom for all the inhabitants to share. When after The Second World War the house was transformed into a hotel, it was not possible to make big enough bathrooms everywhere,... More

If the prices for this hotel were not so high, we would have enjoyed it. However, because of the high price range, we were expecting too much. Breakfast was nice and the rooms were lovely, but this hotel did not meet out high expectations.
