A very good hotel, located right next to the scrumptious Mathallen food hall and renewed Vulkan quarter that was once an engineering works. Good rooms. Helpful and friendly staff. And I think one of the best breakfast buffets I've ever had. The hotel is some 1.25km north of the centre of Oslo, and it has to be said that the... More

Visited in August 2016. Great location with about a 10min walk from the centre. Excellent customer service and friendly personnel. Some bars nearby so expect a bit of noise during weekends. Clean rooms, great breakfast and lovely design.

I spent here a short time in June.The area is pretty nice. The standard room is not too big, but fully adequate. This is a nice hotel, the breakfast is really amazing. The receptionists are helpful, when I asked them to make suggestions regarding my (unfortunately) short sightseeing, they accommodatingly marked on my map the best places to visit! Thank... More

The stuff was polite and helpful, the room was clean and nice. The breakfast offered a decent variety and was quite delicious. The central location is a big plus as it offers very good connection with public transportation. I received a room facing the front of the hotel at the first level and it was quite noise, so I would... More

OK, this was a tough one to call. I would give it a 3,5 if I could. The breakfast was close to perfect. The hotel looks pretty good and the room too. I bought a baguette in the lobby though, it cost 65 NOK and it was dry and close to inedible. I woke up during the night from a... More
