There is not much to say about this hotel. The location is good, but everything else is a standard 3* hotel. Breakfast was pretty good, but the dining room looked liked a canteen with school canteen furniture. Nothing bad and nothing special. Sort of lower class for business people, though the price was pretty good. if compared to other very... More

The hotel is clean and simple but very nice to stay it. I had a lovely view of Oslo from my room which was very comfortable The internet works fast and well. This hotel also comes with a breakfast buffet ranging from more than I could ask for. I was very happy with my stay.

The hotel is located close to the railway station. You can take a bus or tram to go there as there is a station right in front of the hotel. The hotel is great with good food. The rooms are quite spacious as well. If you get a room on a higher floor then you would get a magnificent view... More

Pros: close to central station - timed myself at 9 minutes walking after figuring out the best route on the 2nd day. Otherwise the long route will take you about 15min stroll. Great breakfast buffet spread, 8-10 kinds of cold cuts, hot scrambled eggs, links, juices, breads, salad bar. Cons: no ironing board not ideal for business travel From central... More

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst sight-seeing in Oslo, it made a great base. The beds are comfy, bathrooms are tiny but functional, breakfast is a good buffet style affair and the place is very clean. There's excellent transport links with a metro stop just outside and good bus links to the attractions from the hotel. It's a 10-15... More

Competent and helpful receptionists! Comfortable beds and a great view over Oslo! Had a really nice stay there. It's also located smack down in city centre surrounded by lots of great restaurants. Price vise you get your money's worth. All in all really good.

The Anker Hotel is budget accommodation, but I think it does an excellent job of exceeding expectations. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean - and we had a great view of Oslo from the 11th floor! The breakfast was genuinely really good - much better than you would normally expect from a hotel breakfast buffet - and the... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights with my family, on our way back from northern Norway. The hotel is located fairly centrally in Oslo, a short bus ride (numbers 30 & 31) to the main centre. The rooms are well sized and, of course, feature en-suite bath rooms. The rooms are very clean and well presented. The hotel... More

The hotel recommended us to take the bus from the Oslo Central Station but there is no stop for bus #30 in the train station. Just walk to the hotel, it's only around 10 minutes away. It's pretty near the city center and Oslo is such a small city anyway so it's easy to go around. Our room was on... More
