Very good location and good value for money for expensive Oslo standards. The rooms are very clean and warm and the staff was really helpful with all our questions and requests. They have automatic check-in/out but there's always somewhere there to help if you have difficulties.

The hotel is well located only 5mins walk away from Oslo Station and easy to find. The automated check in was a breeze and you're in your room in a few minutes. The room was very nice, modern, comfortable beds and underfloor heating for the bathroom area. We were by the lift and was worried about noise - but with... More

Hi steem21! Thank you for a thorough and great review of our hotel! Loved to hear you describe the automated check in as a "breeze"! :) We agree that our room categorized as "small" are indeed just that. But there's only a small fee to upgrade to a larger room! But glad you still liked our rooms even though you... More

This hotel is a bare minimum hotel. A couple things to know when booking this hotel: 1) They service the rooms only once a week. Means no daily clean towels, freshly made beds or empty trash cans. 2) No hair dyers in room - HOWEVER they have then at the front desk. I almost lost my marbles on this one... More

Hi GoGlobalTravel! Thank you so much for a thorough and great review! You are absolutely right in pointing out that we do not do daily cleaning (only if you stay for more than 4 nights). But for those who prefer daily cleaning, we can gladly arrange that for an extra charge of NOK 150 per day. If you want extra... More

The hotel public area & interior space are new, modern, and clean. The bedroom and toilet is really nice. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Hotel is really close to the train station and main street. The automated check in/out service is great; however, if your credit card don't have pin number, you must need help from staff.

Hi Mollymoon_26! Wow! Thank you so much for a great review! :) So glad to hear that you liked our concept and style! We are hoping to in the future have a system that accept cards without pin, but unfortunately that is not possible just yet! Hope to see you again! Best wishes, Citybox Oslo More

The hotel is a quick walk from the station (less than 5 minutes), making this easy to find as first time visitors to Oslo. Also a quick walk into the main part of Oslo and to the bus tours. They do have a facility to store luggage - which was hugely helpful to us (as we arrived early in the... More

Great hotel, does everything you need it to. Good location, nice, clean rooms, comfortable bed, the automated check in/out service works great, very efficient. We were able to check in about 2 hours early which was really handy as we only had one afternoon and night in Oslo. Great value for Norway.

Citybox runs an entirely automated system - automated check in and out with entry to the hotel by key card. It's a pretty safe system so you feel secure at night. Plus there's always one member of staff there to help out. We got a room on the top floor (we had 3 so we booked a room for 4).... More

Hi Mstrbmbztk! Thank you so much for your great review of our hotel! Our system is designed to make the hotel as safe as possible, and we actually believe we have better control than most other hotels as you have to use your key three times before you are inside your room! Some might find using your keycard three times... More

We needed a bed in Oslo for 1 night. And as all places in downtown you will have to pay for parking if you come by car..... This hotel is close to most things in DT. Comming by train you will only have few blocks to walk. The rooms are small but clean, what you need is there; bed, a... More

Hi Fredi B! Thank you so much for a terrific review of our hotel!! We are working on finding a different kind of breakfast deal with a third party, but as for now the place on the corner offer great baguettes and coffee for a reasonable amount.

We stayed two nights and did not see a single staff member. Checkin and checkout is done with a machine and there is no daily cleaning service. That said, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom modern with a good hot, high-pressure shower and the room clean and quiet. Combined with excellent prices and a convenient location, this place is hard... More

Hi Emily A! Thanks you so much for your kind words on our hotel! If you managed to stay here two nights without seeing a single staff member you are proof that our concept actually works!! :-) We believe that the old fashioned "reception" is not really needed for everyone, and if that "receptionist" can do something else in stead...

We´ve stayed in Citibox Hotel for 3 nights in February 2014. The hotel is very close to the Central Station, so if you take the train from the airport, you just have to walk 5 minutes and you find it. The reception... Hummm, there we go, no reception... But then again, what would you need it? Its pretty simple to... More
