Oslo is expensive, but you can reduce your costs by staying at the Clarion group of hotels. Coffee, tea and fruit are provided 24/7; pancakes are served in the afternoon; the evening meal offers a lot of choices - and all this is included in the price of your room!

The greatest points of this hotel are the delightful staff and the general easy-going comfiness of the place. So easy to pop downstairs for a coffee/tea/snack for free anytime of day. Breakfast and dinner also included-nothing fancy, but just fine and saves you a ton on meals in a very expensive city. Very easy to be here. Walking distance to... More

We spent three nights at the Clarion Collection Hotel Bastion while traveling through Scandinavia, and it was, hands down, the best hotel of our trip. First, the location near the opera house made it easy to get around the city, and was especially great for nightlife, with many restaurants, bars and music venues within walking distance. We loved the hotel's... More

We were an extended family of 9 adults traveling together in Norway for 10 days. The Hotel Bastion is well located to walk to from the Oslo Central Train Station. The staff is very helpful and the biggest benefit is perhaps that they provide a nice breakfast and evening buffet. Restaurants in Norway are prohibitively expensive. One dislike is that... More

This hotel had an excellent location. Right next the outstanding opera house. The staff was friendly and helpful. You really can not go wrong with this hotel. You get great value. Free fruits, water, tea and coffee all day long. Free breakfast, free pancakes during the day and free dinner. The room was clean and quiet. The hotel has very... More

This is a gem of a hotel. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly. The bonus of having breakfast, afternoon pancakes and buffet dinner included in the room price is unbelievably good value. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

This hotel is reasonably clean and well located near a city center. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast service is decent, not particularly spectacular by totally acceptable. Their 24-hour tea and coffee service definitely deserves praise. Yet two issues need to be taken in account if you consider staying there. 1. Our room was facing the internal courtyard. This... More

Pros: - free breakfast, coffee all day long, pancakes for snacks in the afternoon, free dinner - terrific staff: accommodating and friendly; they happily stored our bags for us as we arrived early; went to the basement to use the toilet without a pass key - the front desk clerk, seeing what had happened, ran after me with a key;...

The best of this hotel: free meal! Oslo is an expensive city, so you can save about 17 euros for a Subway sandwich or 40 euro for a salad and a beer in a regular restaurant by having a dinner at the hotel. The food is good and can satisfy everyone. It's not an all-inclusive service, but is really ok.... More

Positives: Within close walking distance to just about everything, including the train station. Beds were very comfortable. Good water pressure. Good hot water. The rooms were clean, although they show some wear. Breakfast was good (orange juice tasted pretty watered down...but that may have been just me). Staff was friendly. Pancakes in the afternoon. Negatives: Prostitutes milling around on the... More
