The hotel is nice and clean, small and simple, but good for the price. The problem for us was we could not use any our US credits card to check in, because our cards do not have pin. There was no hotel staff on duty could help you. If you do not have a chip-pin card, do not book it.

Stayed for three nights and chose the hotel based on price and Tripadvisor reviews. I actually really like the Citybox automated checkin and checkout process. There are lots of maps, brochures, etc available, a communal fridge and kettle, vending machines with sandwiches and lounge area--all these things make you feel taken care of, even if there's less of a staff...

Just stayed there for 2nd time in 10 months for business. Good location near railway station. Everything you need as a business traveler and nothing you don't-- a good value for one of the most expensive cities in the world! Good choice for business travelers who don't mind self service.

Stayed at citybox for just one night. I was quite happy with my choice to stay here, within walking distance from the station, clean room and decent sized bathroom. I stayed at a single room (they come in 2 sizes, I reserved a bigger sized one). Wifi was good and the people working there were friendly (you don't see them... More

We stayed here with our two children in a family room, which had bunk beds for the kids. Clean and nice, in a spare, Scandinavian sort of way. It is an incredibly good location that was an easy walk from the train station and most major sites. There are adult entertainment shops on the same street, if this concerns you,... More

My family and I (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed in a family room for 2 nights at Citybox Oslo. It was very easy to walk from the Sentrum railway station to the hotel (about 5 to 10 minutes). Upon arrival, the entrance was brightly lit, clean and welcoming. There are 2 self-service kiosks for guests to do self check-ins.... More

Hi Rebecca T! Thanks for an amazing and thorough review of our hotel!! So glad to hear from one of our guests that have stayed in a Family Room! We really believe that these rooms is a real steal if you compare the rates that other hotels offer for similar rooms, but they are so seldom mentioned here at Tripadvisor!... More

Not a counter in site! Check in just like at an airport kiosk - the kiosk took our reservation number, then our credit card, then printed our keys! Absolutely no fuss. The rooms are light and airy, and the bathroom a good size for a budget hotel. I would definitely recommend Citybox, less than 10 minutes from the Sentrum railway... More

Hi Jeanette C! Thanks for a great review of our hotel! Our check in terminal looks very much like an airport kiosk! We believe that we are entering an age where more and more of basic operations will be automated, you can love it or hate it - but we doubt you can avoid it! :) Thank you so much... More

The hotel has a self serve ethos- you book online and check yourself in. We found the hotel easily enough around 10 mins walk from Oslo station- it has no large sign and would be quite easy to miss if you weren't looking for it. There are 2 check in terminals and you may have to wait if it's busy.... More

Hi LS13! Thanks for a thorough and great review of our hotel! Glad that you managed to find our hotel without too much hassle!

We stayed here four nights and found the hotel to tick all our boxes. The room had space for a bed and two chairs and though the bathroom was a bit small, we could both relax without having to sit on the bed. Citybox is centrally located only a short walk from the train station and close to trams and... More

Citybox is a modern economy hotel with low prices. Our rooms are cheap because we keep our running expenses down while still offering our guests what they really need: a simple and stylish room with a delicate bath, a comfortable bed, a good chair, a desk and a place for hanging your clothes. Wireless broadband is available free of charge throughout the hotel. Citybox combines simplicity with comfort and low prices. The hotel is located in the centre of Oslo, 5 minutes walking from Oslo S, train staion. If you want to spend your money on something other than a minibar and room service, then Citybox is the place for you. Oslo is full of bars. Why do you need one in your hotel room? ... more   less
