4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

It's in the city, and our room was slightly bigger than the bed! But that was absolutely fine for us, everything was in easy walking distance, there's an excellent Italian (Mamas Pizza) just round the corner, and free onstreet parking 5pm-9am nearby. 1 star off because the vending machines downstairs only took coins and they didn't have a change machine...

I booked a room at Oslo Citybox Hotel, but unfortunately had to cancel my booking the day before. The hotel would not refund the amount (NOK 790); they said they did not expect to be able to rent out the room on such short notice. Ok, kind of fair (although the hotels in Oslo are very busy and almost all... More

Very nice hotel, centrally located, clean, quiet. The rooms were very nice. Services are essential, but all the important things are available (unless you need a TV, minibar or such). And there is free wi-fi. The room was spotless when we arrived. There is a self-checkin/out booth, which is very efficient - instructions are clear and the system works very... More

I'm always a bit slow booking things, but our booking was handeled super quick trough email two days before we arrived. Really friendly responses too. The place is situated just a few minutes from the station. It's not the best area of Oslo, but there was no noise and we had a great night of rest. Clean room, and exactly... More

Hi M D! Thanks for a great review of our hotel! We are so glad to hear that you are happy with the service provided when booking through e-mail!

I stayed in a single room for two nights on a business trip in mid November. Pros: - location in the city center... very close to the Central Station with a direct connection to the airport, the Opera house and other major sights are within walking distance too, lots of shopping opportunities etc. - the price was fair.

Room was a fine size. We were overlooking the street but didn't have problems with noise. More pillows would be nice, but obviously that's a 'luxury'. If you're the kind of person who needs a daily serviced room with lots of fancy extras, this is not the hotel for you! But if you're the kind of person that wants a... More

Small room, but clean and (relatively) inexpensive. Self-check-in and check-out was easy. There is no TV or phone in the small room, no closet or rack for hanging up clothes, just some large pegs/hooks on the wall. There is a small shelf that serves as a decent computer desk. Bathroom and shower were fine. TV room in the lobby, vending... More

Stayed one night in September. Room was clean and spotless. Very basic, but very affordable. I also would like to thank for the entertainment provided in the common room.
