Great location and ambience and friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable and spacious room for a 5 night stay (pay for 4 deal) and good place to stay for solo traveller. The breakfast was very good. Would prefer refrigerator for personal use and coffee/tea making facilities in room.

We chose this hotel for the location, then we were blown away by the gorgeous decor and fabulous breakfasts. It was close to all the downtown shopping and restaurants, as well as Oslo's excellent subway, which we rode out to the Vigeland Sculpture Park. The desk people were cheerful and helpful, and we even had nice encounters with the cleaning... More

The ground floor library bar and lounge have a certain wow factor: we arrived in the evening to live piano music and a party dining by candlelight in the far corner. Thereafter, it was like any other large, impersonal city-centre hotel. Reception cool but courteous, friendlier on our departure! Not a lot of room for manouevre in the bedroom but... More

This hotel has a great location that is in easy walking distance for any sightseeing you want to do. Royal Palace, Nobel Museum, Resistance Museum, ferry to Viking Museum and many others. The rooms are very comfortable and quite charming. The lobby has the flare of the olden times yet the conveniences of today. I highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here in July during our visit to Oslo. Perfect location to visit all main attractions in Oslo. Great breakfast as well. Hotel is an older one, but a classic. Unfortunately, the main restaurant and bar were closed, but we enjoyed the Library Bar. Just be prepared for sticker shock, which, as we learned, is the norm in Norway.... More

We stayed here 2 nights. Easy to get to from the airport with Flybus from the airport, which I would definitely recommend (as you come out of the custom, the desk for bus is right there, with the bus parked right outside of the door). Check in at the hotel was quick and front desk personnel was very friendly. The... More

This older hotel is delightful, except for the street noise. Rooms are well maintained, staff is helpful and responsive, breakfast buffet is very good. First night was fine, second though, even with the windows shut, the noise from the bar across the street woke me up at 02:00 am. And it kept on till around 03:30.

It is a warm inviting atmosphere in a classical tradition. It is an older hotel, but well kept. The street noise gets a little loud if you have to have the windows open. There is no air conditioning so if it is warm you need open windoows. The breakfast buffet was good with many choices. The location was good as... More

My favourite hotel in Oslo. The Winter Garden/Library bar is an experience in itself, live piano music, great atmosphere, excellent a la carte sandwiches and fabulous cakes. A preferred hotel for low key national and international celebrities (once I checked in next to Sting, another time the national soccer team of Norway). Central location, quiet street right behind Carl Johan,... More

I stayed there for 6 nights. Hotel is located on a quieter street in bustling Oslo, but just block or so from the attractions. It is an older hotel, but it is so well maintained and refurbished that it is better than any of the newer hotels. It is warm and welcoming. Breakfast was high quality and good variety. Airconditioning... More
