From the first moment to the very last, all staff members were very kind and helpful. The room was cosy, but with unspectacular view. Bed was really comfortable. There was a lot of power outlets available at the right places to charge your phone, etc, besides your bed. Great variety of breakfast food. I did not have a chance to... More

Good room and very helpfull staff. Only bad thing is that the hotels airconditioning is loosing it's fight against the heat from the sun, and this on a day with less than 20 degrees air temperture outdoors. This would be easily fixed by installing some form of sun screening in front of the windows.

OK hotel a few minutes walk from city center. Was a bit disappointed on the room comparing to what I paid. Had the deluxe room and they are spacious and that's good. On arrival the bathroom door wasn't working and the sink was almost clogged. They managed to fix the door but nothing happened with the sink. All in all... More

Great location within a short walk to the Opera House, waterfront, and Train Station to the airport! Hotel was clean, comfortable, and the Staff made us feel very welcome and special.

The location was terrific -- right near the Opera house -- and the staff were superb. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. I do wish the bathroom had provided more space for the shower and toiletries, but have come to expect the very small facilities in Europe.

Nice hotel located central in Oslo, with only 5 minutes walking-distance from the central station (Oslo S). The hotel has 99 rooms, so it's not a very small hotel, but it appears nice and cozy. Ve booked a de-luxe room on the 6th. floor and it was tastefully decorated in British colonial style, with a nice large bed, flat screen... More
