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.

This is a clean, comfortable hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are typical European small but more than adequate. The bonus is the dining options. Besides the hearty breakfasts, our room included dinners. The buffet options were extensive and quite tasty. We saved a lot of money by avoiding the ridiculously expensive restaurants in Oslo. We were able... More

To many small errors and mistakes, which all togehter make a poor overall impression. On top of this, when we asked for a little extra service, a check out 2 pm, we were asked to pay an extra fee of 200,- I find this petty. It looked for me like some of the hotellstaff really didnt like theire work, which... More

Hello Ronny. Thanks for your review. I am sorry for the small errors and mistakes you mentioned here. Missing light bulbs in the room as you noted in your feedback through Loopon is a simple think that we should have reacted before you, and I am very sorry about this. Regarding the extra charge for late check out, it is... More

The hotel is located in one of the nicest area of Oslo, close to the harbour and walking distance to the city centre. Very warm, welcoming and relaxing. The furnishings are beautiful and rooms comfortable, it has a character, far from the anonymous business hotels. Highly recommended, it will be my choice also on a next trip to Oslo

The hotel is located in a quiet a neighborhood of Skillebekk (3 stops by tram from the National Theater). It's a clean and cozy place serving good food and gratis waffles, coffee and fruit in the afternoon. The only disadvantage was a smell of stale water in the bathroom but it didn't spoil our impression of the hotel. I'd definitely... More

Nice quiet hotell in a nice part of Oslo. The tram close by and free parking is perfect for a weekend stay. Evening buffet is also a nice tradition at this hotell. It is also in walking distanse of senter of town.

The location is excellent, just 15 minutes walk from the city centre, and very quiet indeed. The main sound is that of the squawking of enormous seagulls (who sometimes literally dive-bomb your plate if you sit out on the sunny terrace having breakfast, smashing glasses and plates to seize that fresh bread you had just layered with butter and marmelade...

Nice hotel with quite and relaxing athmosphere. Great breakfast, and even evening supper included. Small showerspace was the only negative point, but not a problem. Some distance from central area, but no problem to get there.

It felt like this hotel was under staffed. The staff were not interested in the guests and could not understand Swedish/English. Breakfast was good but many of the plates ran out of food. Evening buffe was not so tasty.

Hello. My guess is that you are describing the last Sunday breakfast experience. All I can say is that the hotel was not understaffed, since we had 3 employees on that shift and it is more then enough to make sure that everything went smooth and the guest had a good start of the day. Unfortunately it was not the... More
