“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

Slightly unnerving from outside and the taxi driver didn't know where the front door was. But inside minimalist, efficient and clean. Good quality and value in Oslo. But not sure about the 'campsite bar' feel to the on site restaurant. lots of sports nostalgia but lost amongst the log cabin design, mediocre food and offhand service.

This is a very nice, modern hotel with a great location and breakfast.
Walk to the T-Bahn in 3 minutes
Located in the Stadium, it's also convenient to UiO campus & only 15 minute T ride to downtown Oslo. There is a bus stop right outside to get the bus to the Oslo airport. The hotel has a 50% discount on that airport bus.
The staff is very friendly & the rooms are clean/modern.

Overall rating 5/5.

I have stayed on a few occassions. It is newly refurbished, clean, comfortable, with free wifi, tea/coffee facilities in the room and in close proximity to the subway system. The Egon restaurant chain attached is not actually part of the hotel, although breakfast is served there - so you cannot take a drink to your room... not sure about room service either.

As a regular in hotels, I think it is pretty decent - not outstanding but definitely acceptable and would be perfect for anyone attending the staduim for football.

Room Tip: Try not to get a room over the restaurant as one room I entered smelt of frying

I was working with a distributor close to this area and was put up there. The hotel was clean and typical. Small room and beds, free internet and decent breakfast. I suppose it gets great business when there is a soccer match as it is attached to the stadium.

No complaints at all - would recommend for those not picky and are nearby.

A nice, new and very clean hotel. Very efficient, great service from front desk, on-site Restaurant serves great breakfast. The beds are great, very comfortable, lovely linen bedsheets. The area is very quiet unless there is a football match on, but the local trains are only a 3 mins walk so it is very easy to get into town and enjoy Oslo. There's a few local shops and a supermarket. The only thing I found slightly unusual was room cleaning. I did get clean towels every day, but the bed was rarely made and the room was not hovered once during my stay. The public areas, especially the corridors leading my my room on the 4th floor was quite dirty most of the week. But these are small things, and I would be happy to stay again, given the chance.

Stayed here for one night after watching Liverpool - Vålerenga playing a friendly soccer match.

Nice hotel, quiet, clean and soft beds.

This hotel is located on Ulevaal Stadion, and you can go directly from the stands inn to the hotel. Brilliant!

This hotel is recomended if you are going to attend something on Ulevaal Stadion, if not, then you probably should choose another hotel closer to the city center.

Dear guest,
Thanks for your recommending for staying at our hotel when it is a soccer match. We got a lot of other businessguest to, cause of one of the largest conference center in Oslo.
It is also very good connection with airport bus, underground and bus to the city center(10 minutes).
Have a nice day!

This hotel seems to be brand new and modern and functional.. Everything was in good condition and it was clean and tidy. It is right next to a football stadium. Most of the time there is nothing going on i the stadium and everything else around there seems to close at 4pm. This makes the area very quiet so sleeping is no problem.

If you are doing business in this part of Oslo i would recomend this hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your recommendation!

I am glad to see that you like our hotel. I know that Ullevaal is not the most exciting place in Oslo, but in the last months there as open a few new shops and even more is coming in the near future. The subway also takes you to the city centre in 10 minutes. So I thinks it is a good alternative if you want to get a way from the noise but still stay in the city:).

Welcome back to us!

Best regards,

Ingvild Aasvangen
