During our stay there was as construction site at the hotel, which affected our visit. Building is nice, staff was friendly, breakfast okay. Average. But during roof renovation we hadvworkers that coul look directly into our room, working there, we were unable to open the window and we had to close curtains. Otherwise we did not have privacy.

I would first like to personally apologize for your less than perfect experience with us.

This is a long review to truly explain the problems I experienced while staying in this hotel recently. This is the worst hotel experience I have had since staying away with work in the last 20 years.

Quiters area with High standards and great personel. Walking distance to some good resturants and shops. Have stayed at the Hotel many times and love it. Ask for the designer rooms. They have some of those. Free parking if you are driving.

This is a comfortable hotel in a quiet area of town, quite convenient for the centre by tram. Room pleasant if a bit small. Very good breakfast. Our price also included a light evening meal, which made it very good value.

Nice and quiet hotel, but dust in room, evening food and cleaning can be better. All in all an average hotel, can be good with small improvement. In summertime I believe the hotel have more families, and this have to reflect the evening food.

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
