No frills stay here. Just bed,table and a chair. No tv(which is fine with me) and if you have huge case of bags then good luck to you. Road works still ongoing so you have to find your way pass it. Good points are - its very near the train station and clean. - Easy check in and check out... More

Hotel is located in the centre of Oslo and very cheap for norwegian standards. We had a problem at checking-in and the girl in the office was really helpful. Be sure to take your own toilettries and hair dryer because this hotel is very basic but excellent for a budget travellers.

Hi Martinaaiko! Thanks for a great review of our hotel! One of our taglines is in fact "simple and modern", so we totally agree with your take on us! Glad to hear that one of our Citybox Hosts could be at service! Should you forget to bring your hairdryer, you can also borrow one from our Citybox Host Office. :)... More

There's nothing fancy about it, but it does what it sets out to do very well indeed. In a city infamous for high prices Citybox is reasonably priced and is in a great central location. We stayed in a family room and they're not huge but they are big enough. The rooms are clean and brightly decorated. The bathrooms are... More

Stayed on a business trip as a group recently...not too much parking in the area but managed to park our large van late at night ok. Automated check in which is fine but called out one of the staff as I wanted to pay for all 4 rooms in one transaction and he was most helpful. Rooms compact but clean... More

Hi Al D! Thanks for a great review of our hotel! If you ask most of our guests the age old question "Business or pleasure", most of our guest will probably answer "pleasure". However, we aim to get more guests also from the business sector, as we are sure that most businesses would be really interested to substantially reduce their... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and it did exactly what it said on the tin. A 30 second walk to the Main Street, Karl Johans Gate and about 2 minutes from the train station and 5 minutes from bus terminal it couldn't be more central.

This a very practical hotel in the very center of Oslo. Me and my boyfriend arrived quite late as we were coming out of the train from Bergen. We checked in around 11 pm with no problem. We had booked a small bedroom, but were happily surprised to see the room wasn't so small. There is plenty of space for... More

Citybox Oslo came up on an internet trawl - seemed to be near the central station (I was arriving by train from Trondheim) and have everything I needed at a very good price. And so it proved. Less than five minutes (slalom around the roadworks!) from the station, easy check-in, very clean room on 5th floor (yes, choice of lifts!),... More

Stylish budget hotel in a great location, close to the main shopping areas, transport hubs and nightlife. Perfect for a weekend break in Oslo. Check-in is automated (in fact we didn't see a member of staff during our two night stay). The rooms are small and well designed, with comfortable large double bed. The bathroom is fitted with a lovely... More

You check in with the kiosk (very simple.to do) and it gives you 1 or 2 keycards for your room plus the wifi password and rules etc. Head up to your room, past the attractive and comfortable common room, and inside was a spacious 2 bed room.
