Staff is very kind as should be. I liked location very much: only 1 min to the central Karl Johan's street and 5 min to the central pier. Quiet rooms - good for your sleep. Sometimes you can hear cars outside if your room near the road (our 1st room was on the 5th floor, above St. Olavs gate) but... More

Very modern and functional hotel, located a few blocks away from the centre. We had a pleasant stay, but the small room is really a bit too small for 2 people, especially if, like us, you have a lot of luggage. I guess the superior would have been more appropriate, and hopefully with a fridge (there's none in the small... More

Location is excellent, the Flybussen from the airport leaves you 1 block away, and it is just blocks away from many of the highlights in Oslo. Rooms are VERY small, but functional and the hotel is new. The bathroom is very tight, just barely functional. The premises in general and decoration of the rooms is very pleasant, modern. A good...

This hotel is really cool. Location couldn't be better. Helpful staff. Good breakfast. Rooms are clean, beds super comfy. and yes the rooms are small. Didn't bother me. A true bargain in a super expensive city.

We've stayed here for two nights on our weekend at Oslo. This hotel has got an amazing location, you're literally 2 minutes from the Royal palace and the main street Karl Johans IV gate.I gather it's quite new which can be seen in its exterior and clean&smart&functional interior. There's a lounge area, two computers for internet, breakfast area and quite... More

The room was really small, but it was just enough. All important things were there: a table, a comfortable bed, a clean bathroom with a nice shower, darkening curtains (comes in handy during summer), … Breakfast was really fine with very good waffles! :)

A wonderful bed, good food, clean, clever, fresh and modern. Very near centrum of Oslo if you would like that, and still a quiet area for a good night sleep. I loved the breakfast, and that you can make your own waffles... I love it!! Thank you for a good stay...

We stayed here for a couple of days which was great for exploring Oslo. Not too expensive (for Oslo standards) yet very comfortable and clean. No unnecessary extras are included to keep costs down which suited us on a budget! Room was cosy but functional and windows that opened which was good! Friendly and helpful staff and you can rent...

Had a lovely time at the Smarthotel. It was relatively well-priced for Oslo, and well located, but the room was literally the smallest room I've ever slept in. We laughed when we entered, it was so small. The staff were friendly and the hotel was in walking distance to downtown and major bus and train hubs.

Great location and brand new. Small rooms but good value, modern and efficient. Self-service all the way. From check-in to check-out, to buying breakfast. Like an Ikea for hotels. Very good coffee shop, Fuglen, is nearby. No place to park at the curb, so bag delivery service (from Bergen) refuses to deliver there.
