Hotel was a 3 minute walk from the centeal train station. it was immaculately clean and and very pleasant. Many of my fellow Americans may be used to bigger hotel rooms, but we are always out doing things and use hotels to sleep and shower, so this was a fantastic value. We do not watch TV, so we did not... More

Hi Deborah S! Thank you for a wonderful review of our hotel! We just love hearing from guests that seem to like and understand our concept!

We chose this hotel for the price and proximity to the train station. Small but clean rooms here--I'd probably want something larger if I stayed for more than a few days. Very close to the train station which we took from the airport. Little human interaction here: we checked in ourselves at a kiosk out front. Convenient and speedy, if... More

Hi City_Maus-DC! Thank you so much for a great review of our hotel! Small but clean, convenient, speedy, location! We just love hearing these words! :) The rooms that are categorized as small are indeed just that, but if you are looking for extra space you can upgrade for only a small extra fee to our standard category.

Great value for money in Oslo. City Box is literally 2 minutes away from Oslo main train station, the best way to go to the airport, and 3 minutes from the main street. The rooms are pretty basic, but they are more than enough for a short trip to Oslo. In fact, I was there at the beginning of May... More

If you plan to travel by train to and from Oslo, this hotel is a good choice. Ten minutes walking to Railway Station. The price of the room was not high (I mean, in Norway everything is REALLY expensive) compared to other hotels, so it's a good option. Rooms have no TV. if it's an issue for you, take this... More

I stayed here for a night in a quadruple room. The room had a double bed and bunk beds. The room was nice and bright, and it was decorated nicely (very modern). The room was very clean, as was the bathroom. The ground floor has lots of couches and tables and chairs. There is also a fridge and microwave. It... More

Very cosy and affordable place to stay for a couple of days. Rooms are small but clean and quiet. Tea/coffee and other food related possibilities are in the kitchen downstairs. Self check-in is perfect and time saving. Nothing to complain about during our stay.

Booked two nights at citybox and we were surprised when we encountered the full street was being dug up with road works. No pre-warning from citybox. We had a road works facing room which on the day we arrived was a public holiday. The following morning was not! We were woken numerous times by the sound of diggers and workmen.... More

Rooms were extremely hot, we found it impossible to sleep. Also, the walls are really thin and you can hear absolutely everything going on in the other rooms. The check in system was broken, which meant we had to wait for a while to check in as well. It was clean, that was the only good thing.

We stayed in the hotel over a weekend and were completely satisfied with it. The location is great - very central, the room is small but clean, has all the basics and is spacious enough for two people to unpack and move around :) The staff was friendly and I can't think of anything negative. Great for a short stay.
