This hotel is right in the middle of central Oslo, close to The Parliament building and the royal palace. Also close to Karl Johans gate (the main street). Service and food was quite Ok and the room was clean With a comfortable bed. I was not bothered by noise from inside or outside the hotel. The price was family-friendly also....

The hotel is worn and generally need an overhaul. The room was small. The breakfast room was ridiculously cold, and everyone had to wear coats. Construction workers started drilling at 7 in the morning, so don't plan on sleeping late. The location is great and the price was fair, but this doesn't really offset the general impression of price/performance.

Very good location near restaurants, shopping and Aker Brygge, an upscale waterfront area with restaurants, shopping, a museum and boats to go to the different islands. Room was small and balcony opened to the inside of the hotel, which let a lot of light into our room. Also, seeing as it was July, the sun didn't set until late so...
