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

The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the station and a slightly longer walk to most other sights and museums. The room was on the 12th floor but was serviced by a remarkably efficient lift and was clean and comfortable, we had no trouble with the wifi. The staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. The breakfast was more... More

About 15 min walk from the city center and only a short stroll from Grünerloekka with charming shops, restaurants and bars. Quite inexpensive, not very big rooms, but enough space and a nice bathroom. Good bed and nice breakfast. Parking is also cheaper than downtown.

The hotel provides basic accommodation at a reasonable price for Oslo. The hotel is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is good with a broad choice of hot and cold food served buffet style. The hotel is functional - the rooms are a little spartan, the restaurant is a "canteen". We enjoyed our stay in Oslo using this hotel as our base.

The hotel is close to a small water body which is said is a spot for dealers in stuff. The rooms are very small even for one person. Breakfast was average. The hotel is close to central hub of Oslo. One can easily reach central hub in 10 mins. Overall experience was average. I am sure there must be better... More
