I really enjoyed staying here. The rooms are quirky, spacious and functional. Plus, at £90 bed and breakfast, great value for a very-expensive Oslo. The breakfast was superb, and had so much choice; it caters for everyone's tastes. The staff are very well trained, polite and helpful. The location is good. It's not in the tourist area, which I liked.... More

Great experience: modern hotel with a gym (although a bit tiny), helpful staff, comprehensive breakfast, safe and secured underground car park, only 15min walk from the lake side. I would definitely recommend.

Close to the city center, modern and situated in very cool area. River is just few steps away and its possible to reach the city center walking by the river. Luv it! Breakfast - busy and a planty of choice. Bed was confy, so you could have nice rest after hanging around. Recommendation!

The hotel is removed from the center. Small room and very cramped. The room does not have a case for it is simply no place. Room space is used as much as possible in IKEA. Breakfast at the hotel was delicious and varied. Quite clean and tidy.

Great value for reasonable price. Modern hotel in excellent location, in the trendy Grunerlokka neighborhood yet walking distance from center. Clean and modern room with comfortable beds. Superb breakfast buffet. Highly recommended!

Traveled with a large group so maybe we just got the short end of the straw on room choice. Our room was very clean and new looking, but barely large enough to open both suitcases without having to crawl over the bed to get around. Nice sized bathroom - view looked out on ugly roof top but at least window... More

Thank you for your kind and valuable feedback. I am sorry that we did not meet your expectations regarding room size - as most of our competitor- and sisterhotels we have rooms with different sizes and views. I am glad the other part of the stay were satisfying. Have a nice summer! More

Modern and trendy hotel. Great location and excellent breakfast. Got a room on the top floor, with a awesome view of the city. Pretty much all of the Oslo hot spots are within walking distance. They also offered free parking in July.

The hotel is located just outside the city center on walking distantie though. Friendly staff and great breakfast buffet. The nearby Mathallen are fun to walk around and provide nice places to eat out. Parking is nearby at a reasonable price.

The rooms are small but well appointed and the art work throughout the hotel is modern and eye catching. The breakfast was bountiful. The front desk was very helpful, for which we were especially grateful. There is also a terrific market with small restaurants nearby.
