Nice, clean, cozy hotel. Very well placed in the city center. Nice and clean rooms. Just 2 towels in the bathroom, but when requested at the "FO" they were very helpful on providing more. Nice suggestions on what to eat and where to go.

Central (close to main railway station and main streat Karl Johan). Cheap for being in the capital of one of the most expensive countries in the world. Clean. Great addaption of hotel in old building; old architecture shows and blends with minimalistic modern design. No breakfast but can recommend charming cafe Stockfleths around the corner (not open Sundays).

Close to the railways station, easy check in, easy check out... Very clean and comfortable rooms.... Balance price quality very high. I would say the perfect accommodation to enjoy the city. I'll go there again in my next trip in Norway and I strongly recommend it to all travelers.

No frills hotel well located to see the sights of oslo. Automated check in was seamless and done in under a minute. The room is very basic, small, no tv, no cupboards, but was comfortable and had free wifi. There is a lobby area downstairs that has a computer, tv, sitting areas. For the price it was good value and... More

The simplest check in and check out!! It takes only seconds. The location is fantastic. Close to everything. Just 2 minutes from the Central Station and 5 minutes from the City Hall or the National Theater. The room is small but nice and clean. Every city should have a hotel like this one. And the price is amazing specially taking... More

Check in is fully automated at the entrance. After having entered the booking specs, a key card comes out of the machine, Doors open and elevators operate only with this key card. Rooms are extremely plain. Window looks out over a tiny and very uncharming inner patio and looking into others rooms. Plastic or latex serrated flooring. Bathroom extremely sparse,... More

Cheap and cheerful hotel. Every time I go to Oslo I try to book this hotel. Excellent location, stone's throw away from the main train station. You get what you pay. Good choice if you want to save money in accommodation in Oslo.

We stayed for 3 nights. City Box is just a couple minutes walk from the station (two train stops from the airport) and has an easy self check-in and check-out system. Just key in your booking code or name and the machine spits out your room card. Our 2 single rooms were very small (one being quite a bit smaller... More

Stayed 1 night. Late check-in at 21:00. The check-in/out machine at the entrance always amazes me. Really cool. Did not meet any of the staff but I saw that one was in the office. Very smooth and easy check in and check out. No hassle. The hotel is secured, one couldn't enter the hotel bldg without a guest card key.... More

The title says it all. This stay was clean, convenient and comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located steps from the train station and within walking distance of the major sights in the city. I stayed in a very small single room but with was clean and the bed was comfortable. Self check-in and self check-out was a breeze. The wifi... More
