This hotel is located close to the Vippetangen harbor, which is where some boats arrive from other countries and also where the small ferries to the small islands in the Oslo fjord go from, which is nice for sightseeing on the islands. It's also about a 5-minute walk to the Central Station. The staff is very friendly, helpful and service-minded. Another plus is that they serve not just breakfast, but also lunch and dinner included in the price, which was very helpful for me. I think my room was very cold. I tried tweaking the thermostat, but it didn't seem to have an impact. I never contacted the staff about this though. They might've had a solution for me. Also, both regular phone reception (for cell phones) and 3G (mobile data) reception was very bad in my room, so I had to rely on the hotel's wifi to use the Internet. Wifi is also included in the hotel room so that wasn't much of a problem, but the Internet service they provide is delivered by Telenor that requires a conference code each time you log in. That would be nice if it were only for logging in once a day or something like that, but I had to log in almost every single time I turned on the screen on my phone, even after just being 5 minutes idle. This was a slight annoyance. The bed was comfortable and there was an option to elevate your back etc., which was very helpful at times. All in all a good experience with the hotel though and recommend it to everyone.
