This hotel is a little tricky to find on foot as the original street is split into several parts that do not appear connected on he modern street plan. The hotel is modern, clean and efficient. The room was big enough, although he bathroom seemed to be he same size as eh bedroom. he hotel is in a great location... More

Stayed here for one night in late July, high season for tourists and hotel prices in Oslo. I easily booked the hotel online and check in was very straightforward. The room was small (I agree with the other reviews) but well appointed. I paid an extra 100 NOK for a double room so the bed was a little wider than... More

I booked this hotel for its central position and a price which seemed acceptable for Norway. The position is very good but the rooms are not just small, they are the smallest I have ever seen. Suitable for hobbits. You have to choose if to fit your luggage inside or walk to the bed which is in a niche and... More

If this were a cheap hostel the double room would still be ridiculously tiny...if you plan to be able to fit your luggage in the room and still walk from bed to door stay somewhere else. The hotel has no parking so you need to park in a tunnel about 5 min away (I was given extremely confusing directions from... More

Stayed here for one night in July with my family. The room was clean, the staff was nice, the location was superb and the price was right. The only -was the size of the room as this time we had alot of baggage. If you're travelling light then this is not a problem. Would stay here again!

Overall: a very decent hotel if all you are looking for is a cheap room where you can sleep + one of the cheapest rooms available in Oslo unless you want to share + the rooms are new and modern + decent bed +/- centrally located, but a bit to walk from the train/subway (short from the tram) - tiny...

We selected this hotel because it offered private bathroom, because of its location, price and good reviews. After booking our stay we received a courteous email from their front desk confirming our reservation and offering assistance. We arrived to Oslo by air and took the train to the National Theater station. From there, we walked about 10 blocks to their... More

I stayed here for six nights in June. It is a smart, new hotel within easy walking distance of just about all the city's attractions. Yes, as others have said the rooms are small, but Oslo can be a very expensive city and I suggest that by supplying compact rooms they can provide excellent value for money. Who wants to... More

This is a great find in the heart of Oslo. It's clean and modern, and although the room was very small, it's just what you need if you want to see the city. The staff is friendly - we checked-in at 1:30am on a Friday night and it was no problem. The bed was super comfortable, I slept like a... More

The room in this hotel which we had was really small. But it does the job for sleeping and showering. Price is cheap and the location is good. Breakfast was good, recommend it! Waffle machine didnt really work tho.. Only minus, only credit cards accepted. No cash.
