What a great find, thanks to all the previous reviewers. As nearly everyone says the front of house staff couldn't have been more helpful, and the choice at breakfast is almost overwhelming!
I travelled with a friend and when I booked the room I specifically made a request for twin beds. When we went to the room we were presented with a double bed. The lady on the front desk was very helpful and managed to find a superior room (the last one) for an additional charge for the each of the nights we stayed, apparently unlike most hotels the doubles are unable to be split into twins. I have left a comment with the site that I booked the room saying that this should be made much clearer when booking a double room.
The complimentary evening meal was much better than I had expected and we ended up eating there most evenings, this made our whole stay in Oslo much more reasonable. The lounge area which is above the eating area is a lovely space, it's rare to stay in a hotel where there is a lounge area where you feel like you want to stay, so it was a shame that you had to leave by 22:00.
Finally, if I had to have a small grumble it would be about the room service, I thought the beds were made up to a very poor standard during our stay. However I could only give this hotel 5 stars, for someone who travels regularly to Norway and knows what an expensive country it is, this really was a fantastic find, and great value for money.When I am next on Oslo I will return and I sincerely hope the standards will be made.
