Stayed here for a couple of days en route to Tromso. The room was adequate, breakfast was quite good, and the price was not too painful (by Norway standards). As others have noted, it's a bit away from the main tourist areas, in a region where the city starts to get a bit less polished. I wouldn't say it was... More

Location was great for traveller without a car, clean rooms and good service, breakfast was very good with cold and warm foods. Rooms were a bit small if the stay would have been longer but for couple of nights it did not bother.

After 7 days hiking in the mountains of Norway (with the nice cabins!) we had three more days to enjoy Oslo. We stayed in the Anker Hotel, because of the value. Chamber was small but clean. The bed a little hard. Lobby big and quite. Breakfast was not that good. Not that much of a choice and the food was... More

I recently stayed here on my own and have to say the location, cleanliness, food and staff were all excellent and very good value for money. It is literally a 8 minute walk to the cathedral which is very central. I found a brilliant take away fish and chips which the only way I can explain to get to is... More

I thought that this was great value for money, especially in a city as expensive as Oslo. Only 10 minutes walk from the central train and bus station, and all of the main city attractions are within walking distance (within reason). We walked everywhere from here. The staff were very helpful and gave us our rooms as early as they... More

A very good hotel for a short break. The reception staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Rooms are good size compared to Europe and had windows that open, hairdryer, decent towels, great shower, free WiFi. The location is great - easy walking distance to the main train station and right on a tram line. A short walk to Grunnerlokka, a... More

When we arrived to the hotel we found out they gave away our upgraded room on the 13th Floor that had a view of all of Oslo because they were overbooked the night before - they were very matter of fact about it and not one bit apologetic.. They said they put us in the same room on a lower... More

I can give 4 Points to this Hotel because the location is great (near a tram station and not too far from train station) and the price was really OK, considering that Oslo itself is a very expensive city. Also, we booked a room for 3, but they gave us a room for 4, which was great cause we had... More

Does what it says on the tin A very good hotel for a short break in Oslo. Right on top of trams (No 12/13) Rooms and all areas we used in the hotel were spotlessly clean as was our room. The beds were very comfortable but storage is certainly adequate. They have a very clever security system to make sure... More
