This is my second staying in citybox Oslo. I came back beacuse it's ideal place to stay in Oslo. Not only beacuse of the price, but everything else is great. The location, easy check in/out. The stuff very nice, friendly and always ready to help. As I work in a hotel, to me the most important thing is the cleanliness.... More

Hi Aleks78! Wow! Thanks for an amazing review of our hotel! So glad to hear from a returning guest that seem to enjoy our concept! We've mentioned your comments regarding cleaning to our housekeeping department as we totally agree; they are probably doing the most important job at the hotel! Hope to see you again!

I had concern about this hotel as its the lowest priced one that showed up in several searches, but it was fine. Mostly young guests, students, not fancy customers. Saturday night was quite noisey with the usual roaming, drunk, singing gangs outside. Otherwise, a good place to stay and close to train station. They lowered my room rate because of... More

We prepaid to avoid any problems with our 'chip less' credit card - assistance with check-in is mostly provided by other guests. Our room was clean and spacious with a comfortable bed, but small shelves on either side of the bed were barely large enough for a travel clock and eyeglasses; work station was also small with only one chair;...

Hi molly1548! Thank you so much for your review!

房間非常乾淨舒適,網絡也很迅速,大廳很有設計感。離火車站很近,移動到景點或其他都市都很方便。值得推薦! 房間很小,行李箱打開就無法走動了。但在北歐寸土寸金的地區,此住宿巳是物超所值了。 The room is quite small. You can’t walk when both of you open the luggages on the room floor but it’s a bargain in north Europe. The location is great and it’s about 3 min. walk to Oslo Central Station. The room is clean and you can have the warm floor in the bathroom. I would like to... More

Arriving in the middle of the night, there were quite some shady types standing around on the street. At the actual address there was nothing but an empty front with no signs telling where to go. The entrance was hidden next door as the result of a renovation. Inside, no porter but a computer. The new price in Kroners rather... More

Brilliant idea. We liked everything about this hotel and we would recommend it to anybody visiting Oslo. Quick self check-in and check-out. Nice lobby with comfortable seats. The rooms are well designed.

Cruise ship size rooms with no tv, dresser, closet. The room was very noisy. The noise coming from the street below all night long as they worked on some construction project.

Hi crapsguy! Thank you for your review of our hotel! We totally agree that our rooms are small, and especially if you booked a room that is categorized as small. If you want a larger room we suggest upgrading for only a small fee (about 50-100 NOK). If you book directly through our website we even offer a complimentary upgrade... More

Worth the money. Location is awesome, right at the centrum close to the central station. Self check in/out which is an added advantage, allowing to check in or out anytime. But, yeah if you need help, there's assistance 24x7. Clean room, but yes no TV (at least in my single room). But in an expensive city like Oslo, it's really... More

For the rather reasonable rate we paid for a city that is renowned to be expensive... I guess we got what we paid for. Check-in was easy and painless... We knew we needed to have our pin number for our credit card ready and our room was available when we checked in. The room was undoubtedly small... We did book... More

We selected this hotel for its price and location, pre-cruise. It's a short walk from the Central train station and an easy walk to the cruise pier; great location. We found a small but clean, modern room that suited our needs. There was no TV or phone in the room, but there's a kitchen in the lounge area with a... More
