4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

The room was nice, clean and very quiet so we enjoyed it, even though it was rather small, with no wardrobe and (what was worse because of our chocolate presents) no fridge. As the hotel is practically in the government’s quarter, everything was near so it made a good base for walks around the city. The receptionists were helpful with checking in and giving us basic directions to the nearest supermarket and so on. The only worse thing was the bathroom - it should have been cleaned better.

Stayed for 4 nights while visiting Oslo. We are a couple in our late fifties. Don't be put off by references to it being geared for 'young people' We found there to be a varied age range and the place can be appreciated or not by all ages. Beds were very comfortable and pillows exceptionally comfortable. Bathroom excellent with super walk in shower. Flat screen TV with both Norwegion and British Channels was great for catching the news and an occasional film. The kitchen and chiller fridge handy for looking after any supermarket food. Great place if you are working on a controlled budget and want a very central base from which to sightsee. Free tea/coffee in cups with lids a lovely and most welcome touch. Only negative was that it was particularily hot in Oslo at the time we stayed and air con not working. Thankfully sleeping with windows open made things manageable. Otherwise we'd give it five stars.

Room Tip: Liked our room 919. Was right next door to Roof Terrace and ate supermarket bought evening meal ther...

Considering how expensive Oslo is, I was in shock of how nice this hotel was and for the price. It was incredibly close walk from central station and near the city center. We arrived and it was easy check in with a nice looking lobby. Our room was super nice and cool, bigger than I was expecting for a euopean hotel and for the price. We also were on the floor with the rooftop, which had nice picnic tables and a great view of the city. They also had a decent gym with nice equipment and had free washer and dryer, you just had to buy soap, which is expensive on its own. The biggest downfalls is the bed wasn't the most comfortable or the pillows, but who cares dj you are spending most of your time sightseeing. Also, I wish they had breakfast, but this is another reason why it probably was so cheap. Overall, I would stay again if in Oslo.

My friend came from Italy and had been there. I went there to meet them and I was ashamed, I made the reservations and the hotel is horrible.
The express coffee machine was not working, the "recepcionist" was rude and unprepared. The entrance hall is a self service place with a lot of machines. It is not possible to feel comfortable in that place. The bedroom was "express" as well. In little words the hotel is actually a Express hotel.I do not recommend that.

It would be hard to find better value accommodation in central Oslo, particularly if you book ahead. We booked about 10 weeks in advance and got a rate of 420Kr per night – cheaper than 2 beds in a hostel dorm!

The Comfort Xpress is a pleasant, modern hotel with good facilities overall, but a few quirks that might annoy those who aren’t used to low-budget travel.

The décor is fresh and contemporary, if maybe a little bit ‘corporate-trying-to-be-cool’: there are different murals and funny signs everywhere, a muddle of retro furniture in the basement, and pinball machines in reception. There’s a nice roof terrace on the 9th floor (which isn’t advertised downstairs but is worth seeking out if it’s sunny!).

The room itself was more conservatively decorated but still modern; it was bigger than I expected with a large TV, hanging space (no wardrobes or drawers), and a good bathroom with hairdryer, shaver point, magnifying mirror, etc. The air con wasn’t working but the windows opened fully – phew! Everything was spotless, but bear in mind that rooms are cleaned and towels are changed every 4 days, not daily (unless you pay extra).

Tea and coffee are free 24 hours, there is free wifi (weak in our room, strong in the lobby), and you can buy alcohol and a wide range of snacks (including breakfast-appropriate ones) at reception.

There is a basic ‘kitchen’ which would disappoint seasoned hostel-users, being essentially just a cold water fountain, kettle, microwave and fridge (come on guys, give us a sink and a toaster at least!). It does make it easier to eat on a budget though.

Oh and one great extra – as we left on a Sunday, we got 6pm checkout, free. A must if you plan on getting involved in the Saturday nightlife – Oslo parties LATE.

We were assigned to a basement floor that had no opening windows or ventilation at all in the room. This made for a warm night even on a rainy night in June. Everything from check-in to calling a cab is automated with one attendant on duty to assist. The location is good in the central city and close to several restaurant choices. Our room was clean and adequate in size for the two of us. They could at least add ceiling fans for some air movement in those lower level rooms.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a floor on an upper level when you book.

Excellent rom, but warm. AC sound work better. Fantastic location - come to everything. Good service and cool interieur. Loungearea is very nice, so is the kitchen. I har that there is a roof terasse - the should informasjon about that. I missed the opportunity to ordner breakdance. Recommendable hotel!
