3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This is a great hotel for the price, very basic inside but has what is needed and in a great location. Doesn't matter which way you walk you'll find yourself surrounded by restaurants and shops etc, and only a few mins from the station. Would stay here again if I returned to Oslo

Very close walking distance to rail station, cheap price, comfy bed, free WiFi, good food in the restaurant downstairs. Had everything we needed, and we saved a lot of money by staying at this hotel. A lot of places to eat nearby.

CityBox is really good value for money, with clean and comfortable rooms and a central location. That being said, I found that our room became very warm with no way to adjust the temperature, and the windows weren't able to be opened. As others have said, the non-manned check-in area is slightly problematic, as it draws large crowds of people... More

Excellent location to rail station, downtown, & walk to the waterfront. We were surprised to find the location staffed as we thought the self check-in meant no actual people. The staff were very friendly & helpful. A restaurant was in the adjacent lobby that provided not only a great breakfast but was open for wine in the evenings.

I booked last minute and got a simple, really (!) tiny single room for €135 for 2 nights - which I think is fair. The location is great and very central, but the bed could have been a bit bigger. The train station is just 3 minutes away and excellent restaurants are just a few meters away.

Hi Yalena! Thank you for a short, but super review of our hotel! We totally agree that our rooms are small, and in particular the rooms that are categorized as just that, but it is only a small fee to upgrade to one of our standard rooms! But glad to see that you still found us to offer a value... More

Me and a couple of friends visited Oslo recently for a 3 day trip. The Citybox was the perfect place to stay, being located right in the city centre, close to the station, local bars and pubs and the amazing port. The hotel was very neat and well presented, there was a beautiful lounge area whit plenty of space to... More

It's a very basic budget hotel. No tv and fridge in room. Hairdryer is available with request from the office. At ground floor there is a common area to chill out with tv, common fridge, sofas and vending machines. I don't like the fact that you are greeted by automated checkin machines when you first arrived to the hotel. Nonetheless... More

Nothing to complain about - did what it said on the tin. Check in/check out was really simple and fast. The room was clean and had what we needed. Location was fantastic, really close to transport and points of interest.
