Staff not really interested in serving you - they all seem to have other things to do. Hotel is modern and very dark. My room was large but the dark grey ceiling and walls and very little lighting made it extremely dark. I couldn't tell if it was clean or dirty as I couldn't see that well. Waterfall shower was...

Filthy rooms in scarry, drab colors. Tiny bath with tiny shower and flimsy towels. 2 hangers, no cover on the ironing board and horribly marked up wooden features. Oh my. Did an advance pay so I am stuck here for 2 days. Guess I will spend more time at work...

The hotel is very well located in the center. The staff was helpful and the room was big enough and very nice. There is no parking in the hotel, but there is one very close (quite expensive, though). Excellent breakfast.

Our first assigned room was dirty and untidy. Replacement was ok. The lighting system hopelessly complicated. Nice breakfast. Staff very helpful and friendly. If you travel by car, you have to add at least nok 390 to park at nearby underground parking lot.

When I checked in the room was in a terrible condition. There was blood on the bed, empty water bottels, food leftovers, used bathroom. Of course I was moved to another room but it took time. I arrived on Saturday so there was only one receptionist. The next day they sent me a fruit basket but it was sent by... More

Really luxurious hotel with spacious rooms and luxury fittings and fixtures. Right in the heart of Oslo making all the main attractions easily accessible and in walking distance of Oslo S station. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were very helpful.

Rooms were very small and had poor lighting. Reservation was for two beds, but upon arrival we were told the room level we reserved was only for one bed, even though we had confirmation of the booking with two beds. We had to pay for an upgrade to a room large enough to provide space for two bags. Shower lacked... More
