Breakfast, snacks and evening meal were all included. Coffee machine was in the lobby, so you could drink tea and coffee for free. View from the hotel room was great. Rooms were clean and spacious and the beds were comfy.

My husband and I stayed at the Clarion Bastion for three nights. Our room was clean, a bit worn out, but very comfortable. We loved the "hospital" beds and the fast wifi. As everyone will tell you, Oslo is VERY EXPENSIVE so we were delighted to learn that breakfast, an afternoon snack of crepes, and dinner were all included! The... More

A really good base for your stay in Oslo. Clean and confortable. All people from staff are kind and ready to help you for everything you need. Good and energetic breakfast, supper is ok. Very near to fantastic Opera house.

We were arriving in Oslo late in the evening and wanted a hotel close to the station. When we told colleagues we had booked the Bastion, they said it was in a red light district and we should change our booking. I am very glad we ignored them! Yes, the area has some slightly sleazy places nearby, but it is... More

This hotel is near railway station and Opera so the location is quite good. Staff is very friendly. Lobby and restaurant are very comfortable, lots of chairs to sit down. Breakfast is great. They also serve free dinner and you can really save money with that. In the afternoon you can also make pancakes. Room is okay, nothing special. Our... More

Nice hotel with lovely staff.Situation near the railway station and the city center. Very cozy atmosphere. Price really interesting with breakfast, tea time and dinner. In addition free coffee and tea are available. But a big problem, because all night we heard a rolling noise of unknown source. We did not sleep, despite our call to reception Too bad.

If you ar looking for a hotel with warm hospitality, good beds and an evening buffet included - look no further. Staff is always attentive and proffesional - in the casual nordic way. Bastion is by far my preferred hotel when staying in Oslo. As the title implies it has been for years, and I have no doubt that I'll... More

The Bastion is an old-style hotel, in a quiet area only 5 minutes walk from the central station. The décor is definitely not trendy, but rather comfortable. Throw in an evening meal as part of the package and a sauna (the gym needs more equipment), and it definitely is a worthwhile stay.

If you want to stay in Oslo at a little cosy hotel only a five minutes walk from the Oslo central station, then Clarion Collection Hotel Bastion is a good choice. Next to the heart of Oslo, five minutes to the Karl Johan. Karl Johans gate is the main street of the city of Oslo, Norway.Five minutes to the Opera... More
