Every corner of this hotel is distinctively designed. Our room (a suite) was beautiful, and had a designer bathroom, state of the art lighting, endless mirrors, a separate close/pantry/minibar room and a toilet separate from the bathroom. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful as we attempted both to navigate the city and to figure out our plane reservations. The... More

It seems like the hotel has strived to have nice design, without necessary taking into account the quality of service to hotel guests. The water in the shower never got warm(but the shower was nice to look at though..). The sink was clogged. The room booked was a Deluxe room including a couch that looked nice but was not suitable...

The hotel is not according to the standard that you see online. Bad smell in the bathroom, missing light balls and empty beer bottles in the room when I checked in. The hotel is advertising the Top bar " as the big thing" and when I came up the the bar, it is close because private party, and nobody tell... More

Could have been better. The room I booked was not available so I was upgraded but was told I would have to move the next morning. So I was to be inconvenienced for the hotels mistake. Breakfast could be better and the reception staff need to know more about their reward program

I enjoyed the stay. Nice and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Really good location. The hotel design breathtaking - particular for those afraid in the dark. I had a big apartment, long floor, big bath (and another small one), spacy room and a window inside the building with view to the lobby. The decoration black and wood and beige. A quite... More

Stayed for 2 nights booked through booking.com. Room 203 - faced the street but noise wasn't a problem. Bed was comfortable (super comfy) - so that was nice. Carpeting was a bit worn and needed cleaning - there were stains. Also the mirror on the floor before you entered bathroom was all scratched - looked like someone had done "coke"... More

This hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance of most attractions in Oslo and our first impressions were good. However the room we were allotted was one of the darkest rooms one could imagine. There was only one small window overlooking the atrium which meant that there was no natural light at all and to top it off the lighting... More

This is a review of the rooftop bar rather than the hotel room. Whilst staying at the hotel we spent a late afternoon here as it was the perfect weather for it. I had a steak sandwich which was delicious as well as a locally brewed beer from St Hallvards and I also had a whiskey sour. Very enjoyable meal... More

I expected much more. The first room offered had a window of 50 cm width facing a wall one meter away.We were then given an upgrade to a very and comfortable large suite but it was in poor shape. Dust everywhere; the upholstery was used and dirty. The suite had obviously not been used for some time. I misunderstood "proximity... More

We checked in and checked out twenty minutes later. When we got to our loft room, the first impression was the disco music blasting from the bar above. The music only got louder inside the room. When we entered the room it was filthy and old. The furniture was hideous and the carpet was a dirty shag carpet. The room... More
