Great location right next to the bus and train terminal, approx a 3 minute walk. Walk into the city is approx 15 minutes. Easy check in with the terminals out the front and the room has everything that you need warm and cosy bed, table and clean bathroom. Great value for money

Nice hotel, the location is incredible. You are literally in the center of the city. The prices are amazing as well if you have in mind the location of the hotel. Is a low cost hotel but very beautiful, modern and with the essential. The staff are very helpful and friendly. You have a restaurant inside, a TV room and... More

The box is a no-frills hotel. It is really conveniently located, just a couple of blocks away from the Central Train Station. The Box is simple, clean, and practical. It is very very Scandinavian. The room are basic, not much furniture, no TV, just a good bed (the essential for a comfortable night). And the Internet works good. There is... More

THE SHORT:This hotel is definitely not going to get a rave review from someone used to a traditional hotel experience. But, if you're willing to think outside of the box (pun intended!), then you will enjoy your stay. THE LONG: It's definitely a more modern take on a hotel and a little unorthodox, and I think a younger crowd would... More

A simple, basic hotel, well located. Room was very clean (mine was in the newer building.) No room service or breakfast, and no tv in room. Excellent wifi. This is an excellent choice in Oslo if you are on a tight budget; would stay here again.

This is a clean, comfortable, no frills place close to the central railway station. I was looking for somewhere to sleep that was inexpensive and it fitted that bill for a one night stay. If you do not need a TV and are happy with a bit of building going on (in the hotel and outside on the road) then... More

Clean and value for money. Based in the downtown of Oslo. Close to Main train station and close to most famous must see sites in the Norwegian capital. I recommend this hotel without any hesitation or reservation. Enjoy ;)

Oslo is a fantastic place for a short or long stay. However, it is a very expensive city as the rest of Norway. The City Box, is therefore, a natural option. It is Central and although the name suggests a very simple and basic hotel, it is actually very comfortable, decent, cozy and very modern. It is not exactly an... More
