Great hotel and concept, we stayed for 2 nights in June and had a great stay. The automated check in and out is so easy to use and makes arriving and departing hassle free. The room was clean and had everything we needed for a short stay in Oslo, there were some roadworks out of the front of the hotel... More

The hotel is located in Central Oslo and in a walking distance from the train station. Very convenient location and I could walk everywhere I had to go. There is no room service or cleaning unless you ask for it and there was no breakfast included for me. But that was excectly as I wanted it. So this setup is... More

Great location in central Oslo, the check in/out machines were very efficient. It was initially frustrating when trying to find a staff member when needed but they were always punctual when the alarm was called. Room was clean. Everything you need.

Small, clean rooms. Hotel's location is close to everything, we walked to most sites. Staff were very friendly and helpful. For those of you who don't spend much time in their room except to shower and sleep.

The hotel using a modern way of managements, like the cheap airlines, low price from saving employee cost and service. Which I found it actually works in Oslo. I visited Oslo without expectation about luxury but a decent city-trip. The room is simple, clear, good size and quiet, the shower is small but works well. Flooring by bolon is a... More

No frills or services/Very efficient for hotel owner. No extras like a tv or breakfast and just barely cheaper than a real hotel. Teeny Tiny room that is admittedly clean and in a good location, but compare prices before booking. I think if you want breakfast or tv, you can do better.

I loved the idea of self check in. It meant everything was done so quickly with just entering your booking reference and card details, no messing around with someone taking copies of passports etc and check out simply consisted of dropping keys in the box. Perfect. We usually stay in luxury hotels but given we are travelling for a month... More

We enjoyed out recent stay at CityBox Oslo. The location is great - a short walk (about four blocks) from the main train station and the Opera House. The room was cosy - small but comfortable (the heated floors in the bathroom made it a very warm room). For the price, it was great.
