Stayed one night and found it to be clean, quiet, and in a great central location- only 5 mins walk from the main station. Staff were very helpful too, they found me a spare kettle! Hope they expand to more locations soon.

In expensive Oslo, this hotel was a life saver! What makes it so affordable is the self-checkin at the machine in the front entrance. While the hotel is affordable, you don't sacrifice on quality. It has a wonderful location in the center and is perfectly situated to explore the city. We came in from the train station and walked to... More

We stayed here four nights while travelling by car. There is a parking house about 100 metres away, and costs 295 kroner for 24 hours. Its called the Paleet and is opposite Oslo central station. What I liked about this hotel was its location - it is very central and very handy to Karl Johans gata, the Opera House, Sentral... More

We needed a hotel for one night in Oslo and eventually chose the Citybox - and didn't regret it at all. Our room was small but perfectly formed and although it faced into the centre of the building rather than the street, the view was still interesting enough. The location is very central (easily walkable from the railway station) and... More

Very convenient location, just a short 5-minute walk away from the central bus/train station, and within easy walking distance of the main shopping area. Rooms are basic but comfortable and adequate - looks exactly like an Ikea room. Comfortable lounge downstairs to hang-out, with simple kitchen facilities (cutlery etc), vending machine and books. Downside is no hairdryer or kettle in... More

Great location at a great price! The Citybox Oslo offer simple accommodations, everything was clean and all the fixtures looked brand new (including HEATED FLOORS in the bathroom).

Do it yourself check in. Rooms clean and comfortable. No tv in room but there was one in the lobby along with kettle, sink, bins, coffee machine (inc yummy hot chocolate) and a vending machine with food and toiletries inside it. They also provide disposable cutlery such as plastic plates, cups and forks/spoons.

This hotel is within walking distance from the bus/train station. It is well situated for city centre shopping,bars,restaurants,coffee shops and the sights are only a short walk away. The room is modern and very comfortable, i was travelling alone so i only slept there which was perfect. Recommended.

I loved the Citybox. There was everything I needed - a perfect sized room for just me, with my own clean, modern bathroom, a cool hangout space downstairs that our group took full advantage of and no unnecessary frills. The only thing I would have liked would have been coffee - the machine downstairs wasn't working and there are no... More
