Taking into account that Oslo is very expensive, I still do not think this hotel was worth the money we paid and the 4- and 5-star reviews it is getting.
My husband and I were traveling with my Mom, so we reserved a Superior room with a pull-out bed. Overall, our stay was fine - the room was clean with extra space for the 3 of us, the hotel was quiet, and we appreciated the free breakfast. The location was also good - within walking distance of the train station and all of the major sites. (If you are looking to stay right near the train station, opt for the Thon Opera. We stayed there on our last night after returning from Flam, and found it to be just as nice, got a better rate, and it was very convienent for catching the train to the airport.)
But - given the ratings and reviews here on TripAdvisor and the price we paid for a Superior room, I was expecting more. The little things let us down - our room was at the end of a somewhat unattractive hall near a cleaning closet; the walls of the halls and the room were very scuffed; there were no toiletries in the room besides a bar of soap and the gel in the shower, the pull-out bed for my Mom was pretty uncomfortable (and based on our original discussions with the hotel when making the reservation, we thought it was going to be a normal 3rd bed); the front desk staff, while polite, was not very familiar with the public transportation and could not give us detailed directions to a restaurant we were looking to try. Individually, these sound trivial, but added together, they left us feeling a bit disappointed. If I were ever to return to Oslo, I would probably look somewhere else, or return to the Thon Opera.
