“Just above average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Good location for a sleep-over before or after a flight to/from Oslo. Not at place you'd want to stay for more than one night. We ate at the restaurant - open from 6pm - very nice staff, food was quite good. Overall the staff was helpful and friendly. We stayed in a family room with two bunk beds - like a cabin on a ferry. With a baby cot, it was quite narrow. But as we only stayed there for approx. 10 hours, it was ok. Breakfast from 4am - great if you're traveling early.

Very close to the airport. Shuttle bus every 30 mins. Journey time 7 mins. Fare NOK 70. Rooms adequate. In house restaurant surprisingly reasonably priced. MacDonald's outside but did not visit. Good breakfast served from 4.00am!!! Excellent alternative to downtown Oslo prices if all you need is an overnight.

The only real advantages that this hotel has are being close to Oslo AIrport and having a fair restaurant. The rooms are clean and basic with small bathrooms. The really irritating part was that the rooms have what resembles bunk beds - the two upper ones being folded back when offering a "normal" two beds room. I felt uncomfortable, expecting to hit my head on the frame of the upper bed in the case of being startled from sleep (which did not happen, though).
I rate the hotel average because of cleanliness, helpfulness in the reception and good food in the restaurant. No need to go across to the neighbouring MacDonald's...
You'll need to pay for bus transport to the airport, but for convenience's sake there is an automatic ticket machine outside the reception where visa and other cards can be used.

I needed a place close to the airport to stay just overnight before an 11 am flight. There is a shuttle that runs every 15 min. or so during busy hours and costs approximately $30 round trip. It is approximately 15 min. from the airport and makes 2 stops at other local hotels to pick up and drop off. The room was clean. There was no A/c and if you're lucky enough to stay in a room just above the entrance, the alluring sounds and smells of shuttle buses and cigarettes will fill your room. I was exhausted after a long day of travel, so I really just wanted to order room service. Although their brochure says they have room service, they don't. Why they have it listed in their brochure is unclear. When I asked staff about it, they seemed a bit annoyed. There is a McDonald's, "7-11", and gas station within walking distance. The breakfast buffet was average, but at least it was included in the cost of the room. So if you JUST need a place to rest your head for the night, this place will do, but I wouldn't stay here more than 1 night if you can help it.

Definitely one of budget options around Oslo main airport. Conveniently located, clean and just simply nice. Check in as well as check out was very quick, there is a gas station nearby (simple shopping) as well as McDonald if you badly need something simple to eat (although not healthy).

Transfer bus from the airport costs 60 NOK per person each way. Warm breakfast is served from 6:30 am. Othwerwise you can eat other things from 4:30 am.

In downtown Oslo I received a flyer from the hotel where they offer a single room for 680 NOK per night. Once at the hotel, situated close to the airport about an hour by shuttle from the city center, the price had gone up to more than 1600 NOK for a single.

No AC. Otherwise no complaints.
