First of all, the service is simply excellent, without compromise. Any representative of the hotel, at the reception or in the dining rooms (one for the morning, the other for the evening), Treats you in a courteous manner, attentive to your questions, and always finds an answer that meets your needs. The deluxe room we got on the seventh floor is actually a small, modern and efficient suite. Cleanliness and functionality are an integral part of every part of the hotel. The breakfast is just great.
The Nordic Choice hotels is by far the best chain of hotels in Scandinavia. Their Clarion hotels being a premium alternative. Really love to stay here. Quiet, but in the middle of Oslo with everything you need near by. Superb breakfast, wonderful rooms and very good service makes this my place to go whan in the city.
We stayed here on two separate nights during our weekly stopovers in Oslo. On our first night, we stayed in a standard room which I found to be too small. The following week, however, our room was slightly upgraded to the Superior Double; and that, to me, was a good size and definitely more spacious. Both rooms provided a very quiet space, despite its busy location. The beds were also very comfortable and I absolutely loved their pillows! On both stays, my husband and I slept extremely well. Location-wise, it can’t be more perfect for exploring Oslo and/ or for using it as a stopover. It is a 5-minute walk from Oslo Central Station and Karl Johans Gate. The Opera House is also a short distance away. There are plenty of restaurants and shops in the surrounding area and there is an also a tram station (Storgata) directly across the hotel. Breakfast was superb. There were an abundance of choices: hot food, continental fare, pastries, a variety of cereals and yogurts, etc. Our stay also came with a light dinner and an afternoon snack (fika). Since Norway can be on the expensive side, having these available definitely helps stretch the budget. The staff were very professional and hospitable. Be aware though that daily room cleaning isn’t available unless you specifically request for it. Overall, staying here was a great experience. I’m returning to Oslo next November so I definitely know where I’m staying again! …
We were a family of 6 so we had 2 Superior rooms that contained a double bed and a double sofabed, enough space for all. Rooms were comfortable and in a relatively plush modern style with nice bathrooms. Toilets and bath/shower are separate which is great because you don’t need to wait for someone to shower so you can use the toilet. Whilst rooms were generally clean the vacuuming of the carpets needs to be better. Edges, corners and around beds, the carpets were very dusty. Not vacuuming thoroughly enough. Included in the room was breakfast, afternoon snacks and evening simple food. We arrived late so took advantage of the late evening food in the lounge bar, which on Friday was a pretty ok taco buffet. The menu for the week covers some quite good foods so you don’t necessarily need to go out to eat. Breakfast was served in the Galleriet bar. Plenty of space and very nicely done. Breakfast is is very nice and extensive, covering everything from continental, to full english to cakes. My only complaint is that the equipment for keeping the cooked food hot doesn’t really do the job and would recommend the hotel investing in a better system. Not so keen on lukewarm baked beans. Location of the hotel is great. Close to everything for the centre of town and 5 mins to walk from Oslo S train station. Will definitely use again.…
I'm not a fan of separate small rooms for the toilet and the shower. No place to set your toiletries. Turning the thermostat all the way down and unable to open a window made for a miserable night. The wood floor felt stickly walking on it with bare feet and it was pitch black in the room.
We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel has opted out of cleaning guest rooms ( unless you specially request cleaning) in the name of being green. Even when we did request it the beds weren’t made. I have no idea how this helps the environment at all. The hotel is conveniently located and does a good breakfast but all in all we weren’t made to feel welcome. There was absolutely no wifi in our room for our entire stay.
Small room, just space for a bed and a little plastic chair in the corner by the window. Almost no place to your luggage. Notice that your towel will not be changed unless you explicit ask for it. Good breakfast. The hotel is centrally located to most facilities, but price and quality does not match, compare to other hotels nearby.
The hotel deserves a better rating based on the service, location and facilities but when the core reason for staying in a hotel (that being a good nights sleep) is not met, I just cannot give more. The staff are wonderful and the breakfast is one of the best we have had, with a wide variety on offer and well spread out to avoid congestion. Also the evening meal options were more than we needed, being healthy and plentiful. The location is great, once you find it! Staff have been friendly and helpful at all times. However, the room we were in on the 4th floor was tiny with nowhere to put our two suitcases. The bathroom was bigger than some though. The rooms were just too hot at night to be able to sleep. There is no ventilation as windows do not open and no AC. Even a simple fan would have helped. I had three sleepless, hot nights here. Usually that is due to noise but there was only quiet, another plus. I would give it 5/5 if the temperature in the room could be more controlled so sleep was more forth-coming.…
Hotel reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. Room was fine - warm at night, but outside temp was hot! Afternoon waffles and tea/ coffee were a great idea, as was the light supper - nothing amazing (soup, bread, salads and Tex-Mex food), but this is Norway and everything is very expensive, but just right after a day travelling, and on the top floor where there is outside seating with views. Artwork was interesting. Breakfast was stunning - just the best that I had in Norway!! Hotel is only 5 mins walk from the central station, and easy access on foot to lots of points of interest - waterfront, palace, museums, parliament, etc.
We stayed for two nights and it was quite a nice experience. The facilities are good and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast is great and a reasonably good dinner is also included. T he room that I booked 'Standard Double' is bit crampy if staying with kids.
