Attended a large, two day conference at Expo and was especially impressed by the helpfulness of the receptionists. I was given a room with a window opening up to a large roof and did not care for the idea of someone being able to walk right in. The receptionist not only gave me another room, she upgraded me to a ‘mini-suite’ (room 251) built to accommodate guests in wheel chairs, therefore being quite large. And with a small kitchenette in one corner, alas without neither a kettle nor tea things nor anything else in the cupboards, which made the presence of the kitchenette rather strange.
The bathroom was large as well, but the shower space was awkwardly small, and as the floor did not tilt very much and the curtain did not quite reach the floor, a shower would result in quite a lot of water flowing across the bathroom floor.
The hotel is brand new and they provided teas, coffee, popcorn and ice cream free of charge, a nice touch. The bar is quite expensive, but not overly so considering this is Norway.
Oslo Fiord is a very short walk away and a beautiful place to unwind.
I would recommend this for meetings and conferences, but not for tourists. It is effective, clean and the beds are comfortable, but it does not have much charm and Oslo is quite a distance away.
