This was one of the cheapest hotels in Oslo, but was located right in the centre. Had everything that was needed and hotel staff really helpful. Rooms are very small and not suitable for a stay of more than 3-4 nights, but very comfortable and clean. Highly recommended.

We -- an older couple from the US -- stayed three nights in a SmartHotel Oslo "superior double" room in May 2015, fortuitously arriving the day before Constitution Day, Norway's unreserved celebration of its rustic past and birth as an independent nation, with the main activities held just two blocks away. For our taste SmartHotel Oslo was compact but comfortable... More

I am a budget traveler and have learned a few truths when it comes to value for your money. In this case, just spend the extra money on what they call a "superior double room." You will at least have some space to comfortably move around the room. I peered into the single rooms and they were about the size... More

The rooms are very small. It has everything you need and it's perfect for a short stay. I expected more from the buffet breakfast, but again, it isn't expensive and it was not bad. The hotel does not offer any parking services so be prepared if you travel by car.

Very clean hotel throughout, staff very friendly and knowledgeable. travel in and out of the City very easy by bus coach or tram. only downside is you have to use a credit or debit card because they don't take cash.

- Wifi in rooms is frustratingly slow - clean rooms and good shower - good value for money and central location - friendly service and fast checkout - do not expect the biggest room but everything is fairly new and clean: sufficient to spend the night.

I agree, the price and name somewhat gave it away, but this is one of those boiled down from the boiled hotels. The feeling in the room is that you have to be careful when you turn around not to hit yourself. Admittedly the internet is ok. I'll try to remember next time not to be 'smart' when coming to...

The hotel is in a very good location, we could walk to all major attractions of the city. The room was ridiculously small with terrible view of a... wall. Not very clean or quiet but overall ok for the money.

Good location - all the important places are easy to reach by foot or by public transport. The hotel itself - clean, simple, even minimalistic. Not that it's design, but still. The room: it was obvious that a lot of thought had been given to make it as functional on such a small space as possible. Everything was there and... More
