“Clean, no frills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

This hotel was actually nicer than I expected it to be. Small beds, but I am short and barely noticed. It seems more like a fancy hostel than a hotel, but it was clean (white linens - no busy prints to hide stains) and had everything I needed. I am not one to require fancy amenities, and I appreciate a place that won't charge me for things I won't use and don't need. The location was perfect and I didn't feel afraid even once. I even went out for a run by myself early one morning and wasn't bothered by anyone. I did notice a bar across the street, but it was kind of fun watching the party people from the roof above and it wasn't too loud. They offer no breakfast, but there is free coffee all day and night in the lobby and you can purchase snacks and fruit/yogurt if you like, not to mention being just down the street from lots of restaurants and cafes. The only incident that occurred during my stay was a (false) fire alarm around 1am or so. Not a big deal, except that I was already sleep deprived from my body not used to the new time zone and it seemed like I would continue to be thanks to the alarm. I was definitely relieved there was no fire, however. Despite that, I would most definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: The rooms on the outside have a view of the city, but since there is a roof deck, I would save the m...

Hi!
We’re so exited to hear we exceeded your expectations. We aim to offer smart, compact rooms at a very affordable rate without having to compromise on the location. We’re always very happy when this is appreciated.
Everyone should know that hotels in 2014 are strictly non-smoking, and most people respect that. (Just in case someone doesn’t know: we’ve put signs in every room informing that we are a non-smoking hotel) Smoking in the room will set of the fire alarms, and unfortunately that happened on your visit. We’re glad to hear it did not affect your stay much, and thank you very much for recommending us to your fellow travelers.

We hope you’ve adjusted to your normal time zone and that we will see you here again on your next visit to Oslo!
Have a great day.

The hotel is a quick 10 minute walk from Oslo Central train station, and an easy 5 minute walk to Karl Johan's Gate (main street in Oslo city center). The hotel is clean and provides for complimentary tea, coffee, and wifi. The lobby also has drinks and snacks for sale. The room is basic, but has everything you need. We were told that they only clean the rooms every 4th day, so something to note before you put your towel on the floor to be replaced. Additional towels will cost you 30 NOK. My only complaint and it could have been room specific, but our room was incredibly warm and the only way to cool it was to open the window a bit. Which normally wouldn't be an issue, but at night when people are out until 3 am, this is not an option.
If you are looking for something nice and basic, inexpensive, and in a central location then I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room not at looking out onto the main street to avoid noise

Thank you so much for recommending us to you fellow travelers.

We’re very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and your visit to Oslo. Shifting from winter to spring, we do experience some issues with the central heating. It takes some time to adjust, but you should be able to set the temperature on your wall panel.

To be able to offer the lowest rates possible, we have decided not to disturb you while you’re here. We clean the rooms every fourth day or you may choose room cleaning as an optional add-on. A fresh set of towels costs NOK 30. The cheapest, and most environmental friendly way is off course to hang your towels to dry off. There are plenty of towel racks and hooks in the bath rooms.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We hope to see you here again soon!

Decent modern hotel, stayed here for a couple of nights in February and was a pleasant stay.

Good central location in easy walking distance to the centre and a lot cheaper than many other hotels in Oslo, the most expensive city I have ever been to. Decent bar next door worth a visit. Only downside is they don't really do breakfast, just a fridge with a few snacks in.

Hi!
Thanks for taking the time to review us. We’re very glad to hear you enjoyed you stay! Oslo is known for being a bit pricy, and we’re very proud to be able to offer affordable accommodation without compromising on the location.
Running a restaurant is very expensive, so to be able to shave off that room rate even more we’ve opted for a lobby shop with breakfast items in stead. We do have a short list of great breakfast restaurants nearby for those in need of a fry up in the morning!

Thanks again for your review – we hope to see you here again soon!

Perfect for quick stays in Oslo! Id staying during a.weekend, there is a "late check out"on.Sundays, so you can stay until 18:00 wirhout paying any extra fee!! Would recommend to everyone! The location is also in the middle of the city center. 5 min walk With luggage from Oslo S :-)

Hi there!

Thank you so much for recommending us. We’ve extended check-out until 6pm every Sunday. You can explore the city while you wait for your afternoon flight home. Or sometimes you just need a few hours of extra sleep. Sunday are meant to be enjoyed either way.

We hope to see you here again soon!

it was the cheapest hotel we could find in Oslo for those dates so we weren't expecting a great thing, but in fact it surprised us. The living room was very clean, you had a microwave and a boiler to do some basic meals.
the room a bit small but it had every thing you needed. Our room wasn't noisy at all and the wifi was working great, so I think I can't complain. Everything was smooth.

We loved this place, we were in Oslo for 4 nights and were looking for cheap but decent accomodation. Comfort Hotel Xpress definitely delivered. Our room was very comfortable, clean and bright. The bathroom was wonderful, with heated floors and nice steamy heat from the shower.
The wi-fi was very good and very fast, which is very important to me.
The staff at the hotel were very nice and helpful, and the lounge on the ground floor is cool. There are pinball machines and computers you can use, but the real plus is free tea and coffee (considering how expensive Oslo is, being able to have free coffee is wonderful).

Location was good, easy walking distance to everything, and there's a grocery store not 3 minutes down the block.

We would definitely stay there again, and highly recommend it as a hotel for a couple staying in Oslo.

Near the city center, friendly staff, you can have free coffe and tea at any time or purchase snacks in the hall. They have computers you can use for free and free WiFi too. Rooms are cleaned every 4th day, but it's no big deal, (you can buy clean towels and sheets if you want them clean every day). And also there are many useful guides you can take for free in the hall. It has been a really nice stay for us, definetly would come again!
