Getting to this renouned hotel is a bit of a journey, especially if you go by metro. From the metro stop to the hotel there is quite an uphill walk, which can be cumbersome with luggage. Though most people choose this hotel for the view, not its proximity to Oslo centre. The hotel is in itself a mix of old fairy-tale, 80s concrete block and modern extentions. I got a spacious recently renovated room, arranged with twin beds, which were very narrow. The view from the room was great, as you expect from this hotel. The bathroom had a bath tub, and showed marks of wear (probably renovated in the early 90s). My purpose for staying at this hotel was a conference, which were held in the older part of the hotel. One of the conference rooms were very small, and quickly became stuffy and warm which is not productive for a meeting or conference. Also all the extentions made this hotel a bit of a maze to get around. As for the food the breakfast was good, with a great variety of breads, though the cold cut selections were fewer than expected in a Norwegian hotel. They served a more international breakfast selection of beans, bacon, eggs, hash and pancakes. The lunch buffet was inventive, and quite superb, serving tapas style dishes, rather than the traditional hotel buffet. All in all, a hotel one choses for the view and closeness to outdoor areas, rather than its distance from the centre of Oslo.
