From Gardermoen Airport, you will arrive to the hotel in 30 minutes. Catch the Flytoget train to Oslo Sentralstasjon. Once there, walk out the front and Karl Johan Gate should be directly in front of you. Hotel will be 5 or 6 blocks up on the right. I have been 3 nights in this hotel. I can say it is... More

This is a super hotel, great location on the main shopping street in Oslo. Staff are really friendly and the breakfasts are to die for. The only negative is that they are doing building work to the hotel, so there are no views from the windows and there is a bit of noise. But this didn't detract from a great... More

Oslo has to be the most expensive city I have ever been too. With that, rates at this hotel are a relatively good value. I stayed here 2 days for business. From Gardermoen Airport, I was walking in to the lobby at the hotel in 30 minutes. Catch the Flytoget train to Oslo Sentralstasjon. Once there, walk out the front... More

A nice, old hotel in the heart of Oslo. The staircase is a real beauty. Lots of interesting paintings on the walls. The room was small, but big enough for one nights stay. The bathroom was very neat and clean. Very good breakfast in cosy rooms. This was my second stay at the hotel and I would be happy to... More

Right on Karl Johan, just 50 meters away from the Parliament. Excellent location. Just 200m on foot to the Nationalheatret Station, where you can jump onto the Airport Express Train or the metro system. The single rooms are very small, and not very well equipped, but it if you need a bed and a good breakfast, this is a good... More

Stayed one night on a conference in Oslo. The location is great. Small, but quiet room. OK bed and ok service. Breakfast a bit simple, but satisfying. Recommended for travellers or business men who just need a place to sleep for good value with a central location.

We had a short Saturday to Sunday stay here for our Oslo weekend. Had stayed here some years ago, and chose the hotel now for the perfect location for our activities near the main street. This is not a new hotel, but clean, stylish and cozy with a big and old fashioned staircase. Elevator was a bit slow, but it... More

Used this hotel for a number of business trips (note booking choice not mine!) as located very close to our office in Oslo. Hotel is in a great position, right in the centre and an easy walk to see some of the beautiful sights of the city. Oslo is great but very expensive. The hotel itself is very tired, in... More
