Can’t beat Best Western Karl Johan Hotell’s: Location (nothing more central), High Speed Internet, Service, and Price. Their breakfast had outstanding food (different from traditional US hotels, but fantastic!). My room was cozy (no extra space, but not claustrophobic) with incredibly comfortable beds after a long day of sightseeing! Loved the helpfulness and friendliness of the employees! Absolutely wonderful experience... More

The hotel is very centrally located and within 5 mins of the city centre. It is situated on Karl Johans Gate (one of the main roads in Oslo) and overlooks a square which had a christmas market with lots of stalls and an ice rink. The room was big with very high ceilings and the bathroom was a good size... More

Perfectly situated on Karl Johan in Oslo, with all its shops and nightlife. The staff are amazing and really friendly. Always willing to help. Hotel itself is an older building, with really nice interior well preserved. Our room faced Karl Johan, but was well isolated. It was nicely furnished and very clean. Beds also comfortable and gave us a good... More

I spent several nights there in different rooms, some are very nice others are somewhat weirdly designed. Breakfast was good and price is average for Oslo I would say. The location however is really good.

Compact 1 person room, good bed, clean bathroom. Had a room on streetside first, too noisy, changed to other side immediately, good service at front desk. Breakfast is also good, plenty of choice, good coffee.

Stayed at the BW KJH for 2 nights over a weekend mid-Dec. Great location, walking distance from Sentral (direct train to airport). Room basic, 5th floor under the eaves, but clean and functional. A little noisy due to residents coming back in the early hours of the morning. Hotel itself is in the heart of most of the sites (Parliament,... More

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Karl Johan for 3 nights in July 2014 while on a month-long holiday in Europe. The hotel is basic but well-priced for Norway. However, the big negative was the lack of air conditioning (it was very hot when we were there), though staff were very helpful when we asked for a... More
