Modern, clean hotel very close to the centre (only two streets back from Karl Johan and a ten minute walk to the quayside). Comfy bed, powerful hot shower and good value for money. Definitely recommend for a long weekend.

10 min walk from train station, rooms comparable to a cruise ship, fast & free wifi. Expect city noise. Double rooms are not quite that - they have one bed shared by two comforters made to look as if they are double beds. Nice hot shower, no tv, no phone, key card must be used to turn on lights, must... More

The Ryanair of hotels without the attitude. Everything is cut down so prices are low - no reception, no TV in room, no telephone. Super fast WiFi so we watched TV from home on our tablet. There is always someone around so any problems are dealt with. Common area has fridge for beer from duty free, microwave, and cheap vending... More

Hi andy_scot_uk! Wow! Thanks for an amazing review of our hotel! Our Citybox Hosts actually laughed of your comment of "The Ryanair of hotels without the attitude", but even though it's funny, it really got some truth to it! Glad you were able to manage with our wifi instead of a traditional television, and that you could make use of... More

We would definitely recommend the Citybox Oslo. It's very good value for money and in a great location in the city centre, right near the famous Karl Johans Gate and the main station with trains to and from the airport. Would happily use it again.

We enjoyed our stay here; the hotel is well-positioned for the railway station, the cathedral and all of central Oslo. The room was tiny, with no wardrobe, but we can live with that; it had a comfortable bed and a nice shower. There are handy facilities in the lobby, like a (communal) fridge, a kettle and a microwave; we were... More

We were able to check in early although as it was a self check in service we may have been blessed with fine luck upon this day. A tremendously qwirky atmosphere and everything worked smoothly. The shower was super duper as was the whole city box experience. Unfortunately , there were some very small questionable stains on the linen which... More

Hi Ellie L! Thank you so much for a great review of our hotel! You are actually the second tripadvisor-review that mentions "Does exactly what it says on the tin".

We had some problems in the beginning with our room, as the window would not lock properly and the noise coming from the street was too loud to sleep. When commenting this issue to the staff, they understood and fixed this matter swiftly by changing us to different rooms. The good part: it is newer than its counterpart in Bergen... More

Hi EuropeanBackpacker! Thank you so much for your review of our hotel! Too bad that there were some difficulties with the window in your first room, but glad that we were able to sort it out!

I stayed here in March 2014 and it was a perfect location to the bus station. We only stayed one night at the end of our European trip and wanted to be somewhere close to the airport. It worked out well. The rooms are really tiny but if you don't plan on being in your room for long its fine.... More

Hi MelodySPerry! Thanks for a great review of our hotel! We are actually quite far from the airport (45 kms), but we are really close to the flight shuttle train - so we guess we are a great alternative for those who would like to stay near the airport as well. The flight shuttle train leaves every 20 minutes from... More
