We stayed here on one of the unusual hot days in Oslo. The hotel rooms do not have air conditioning, yet we managed OK. The rooms are dark and could use better lighting. We faced the atrium, so it was quiet. The breakfast had a good variety. Restaurant had good food.

Right in the city centre this hotel is great for sightseeing, the hop on hop off bus has a stop virtually outside the door. Very close to the train station and bus terminal with easy access to the airport via the Flybus or Flystop train. Room was very good with great bed and fab pillows. Breakfast was busy but the...

Only booked this hotel because of the pool and the access to the relaxation area as I was staying over here for my birthday and this was going to be my "treat". After checking in and unpacking, I discovered that, while the room was tidy, the bathroom was very dirty (I dont think it was cleaned at all). I showed... More

I understand a refurbishment is due which is needed in parts as it looks faded glory. The only 4 star hotel I've been to that didn't have a room safe! All the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was very good too. Next to the station which handy.

This is an old hotel. Staff is friendly, but lack knowledge about Oslo. Breakfast is just OK, most of food was always cold and tasteless. Our room was never serviced well, we had to call for a coffee kettle, coffee packets and a toiletries that housekeeping did not replace. No AC working either. Also very noisy outside, ask for a...

Stayed one night for a quick visit to Oslo. The hotel is right across the street from the train station, and it's just two blocks to the main shopping street. Lots of restaurants nearby. The wifi was excellent, and the room itself was well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was expansive, and well organized. A great place to stay.

This hotel is in a really central location, and offers large rooms (we had a roomy suite), but they are dark (lack of lamps). Nice bathroom, heated towel rack. Free wi fi, excellent breakfast with loads of choices, but busy, since this is a huge hotel. We also had a (expensive) drink in the hotel bar. The elevators are glass,... More

Was here with a friend for 3 days, breakfast was good! Lived on 11th floor, so we didnt have any problem with noises. The rooms, location and view from the room was fantastic! Close to restaurants, bars, shopping and train station! The only thing I want to complain about is the parking is a bit expensive. 35$ a night.
