My visit was as good as usual. That's why I'm always coming back... so I don't like this forced review of 200 characters. So - this is the last time I'm returning this. Please be aware of a way to tire out your visitors.

Nice room, but very small bathroom. The bed was god, and there were no nice from traffic or next rom or hallway. Very good breakfast. Located proximate lay 15 min walk from the center of Oslo. The hotel is located in the embassy area of Oslo. There are some nice design shops not far from the hotel.

Dear Dan, Thanks for your visit and the review. Just want to mention that we have many rooms with large bathrooms as well as some smaller once. It is not an easy task to get any standard size on anything in a historical building like ours. Have a great summer and welcome back again. Naira Lalayan General Manager More

Lovely quiet, leafy location very close to tram 13 which goes to the station, and easy walk to buses or other trams for alternative city destinations. Although it is not in the centre we found using the public transport with an Oslo pass made it ideal, and lovely to be so peaceful. It is a character property and the dining... More

It took me long time to decide the hotel but I can't imagine a better place. The ubication was perfect, close to the city center and the museums in a peaceful and full of service borough. The hotel is full of caracter, with the unusual front face and the 3 peaceful livinrooms with 3 different ambients. It creates the feeling... More

I stayed here a night in January. The room were ok but the bathroom was a big joke. It was so small. The door to the shower was broken so there were no space for taking a shower. The brekfast buffe was better than the hotel. The wifi didn't work in my room.

Located about a mile from Karl Johann Gate, this hotel is in a beautiful, quiet, leafy green area amongst embassies. Not in the center of the action but close enough to walk over to enjoy the sights. Free parking was extremely convenient. Easy to access the hotel from the motorway without getting stuck in downtown traffic. Breakfast, afternoon coffee and... More

The hotel is situated in one of the nicest neighbourhoods, just a hundred meters or so from the tram. Free waffles for afternoon tea was a welcome bonus! The room was quiet and clean. No issues whatsoever.

The room was tiny. More like a ship's cabin. Dining was odd. We arrived on Saturday evening to be told that there was free dinner. This turned out to be cold wraps from the bar - hardly great dining. On two days out three stayed there we had to request that the room was cleaned and the beds made after... More

Hello and thanks for the feedback! It sounds very strange that somebody would tell you we offer a “dinner”. This is a definition we DO NOT use since what we offer is not meant to be a dinner, it s a light evening meal only. For 3 weekends recently we served delicious wraps as something different from weekdays, trying to... More

It is central, it is good and it is reasonable. From here you can reach with ease the peninsula Bygdøy with its famous museums such as Kon-Tiki and the Vikingship museum, 15 min walk to the Royal castle etc. can be recommended.

Top service, great location. Excellent evening food (free) and great breakfast (included). Quiet location, close to main attractions. OK fitness room. I have often used it, and appreciate their efforts to help.
