As previously, I liked that the hotel is located in a great spot for access to the station, there are no unnecessary frills and you get to have a nice sociable experience with other travellers in the lounge. The room was comfortable and has a great bathroom. I was pleased to find the coffee machine working - yay! Check in... More

For a no frills hotel the Citybox Oslo is a must. located very close to Oslo Central railway station the hotel offers a basic, but clean and warm room. Free Internet is provided as with shower gel and a towel...thats it. If you need anything else take it with you. I had a single room for 1 night for under... More

Hi ziggybray! Wow! Thanks for an amazing review of our hotel! Just love the catchfrase of "Great location, great price - What more do you need?". We totally agree, the first we ourselves look at when we travel are location and price. Looking forward to welcoming you back when you visit Oslo again! Best wishes, Citybox Oslo More

Enough for a short stay in Oslo. Well located. Clean. Bathroom big enough. Bad Wifi in our room. No luxus (fridge, TV or even wardrobre) in the room. The lobby area was nice, but an additional fridge and bigger variety in the vendor machine would be needed.

Citybox is an excellent, no thrills, comfortable budget hotel. The location is perfect, a five minute walk from the train station and walking distance to most famous attractions. Upon arrival you check in at a computer which prints your keys and access card to the hotel immediately making you feel safe. There is a bell should you encounter any issues... More

I wish budget hotels were like this more often. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable and the bathroom very clean and modern with a shower far better than I've found at many four and five star hotels. I also had three perfect nights' sleep, due to the very good noise insulation - something I cannot say about the vast... More

Our flight was cancelled due to a strike and we needed to find a place to stay before our new flights. We chose this hotel due to the affordable price and the location near the railway station. The check in was easy. The room was nicer than some of the more expensive hotels we have stayed in. The bathroom was... More

You will not be welcome upin arrival but rather check in on a machine. The entrance is surprisingly clean and neat,where only guests can enter. The bedroom, even though small, was a real surprise: the carpet floor seemed new and so looked the furniture. The bed was perfectly cleaned. I am good at finding flaw but didn't catch any. I...
