Located right on the central plaza/park in Oslo. Parliament just a block away and all the great restaurants and cafes a block away. Wonderful location and the hotel itself was very nice. Small rooms, but functional, clean and modern. The hotel has on site parking for autos, however, you have to take an auto elevator to the basement to park... More

We stayed four nights at this hotel and we were not disappointed! We had excellent service throughout our stay. The entire staff needs to be commended, especially Daphne at the reception desk who is a delightful person, always smiling and ready to help.

Brilliant location just around the corner from the parliament building and a short walk to the waterfront. The room was small and had little storage, but the bed was very comfortable and the room quiet. We had a superior room for 3 adults but with the sofa bed open it was hard to move around the whole room. Breakfast was... More

This hotel has it all, convenient location, wonderful staff, perfect room. Our triple was large enough for three adults. The staff truly went out of their way to make our stay comfortable including giving us a free packed breakfast for our early departure. The complementary breakfast was filling and the location was perfect.

This hotel is walkable to just about everything you would want to see in Oslo. The staff was helpful at check-in and were able to sell us a 48 hr Oslo Pass at the same rate as you would get from the visitor center. Our room was quite comfortable. It was on the same floor as the breakfast, which I... More

The room was nice, the location was the best Oslo (in terms of being bang in the center of the city) had to offer and the prices were decent. They offer a great breakfast, however if you plan to stay for a week or more, it might get a little monotonous. The staff were also very helpful and overall was... More

This hotel has a great location in the middle of Oslo’s tourist sites. The harbor is just 2 blocks and parliament (with the pedestrian street) on the corner of the hotel. The rooms are modern, but do not have air conditioning. If you have a room facing the street, there is some street noise. Request a quiet room. My room... More

Wonderful location in downtown Olso, close to everything. However, there is no A/C, which I can live without as long as I can open a window to the outside. All of the windows in this hotel open up to a enclosed closed glass atrium in the middle of the hotel. The atrium heats up during the day in the summer,... More

Stayed here two separate times over a week. Was surprised by how comfortable the room and shower was. Breakfast was fantastic. Little else in amenities but didn't need anything else. Service was generally great except when it came to checking in. They would not make any exception we couldn't get into our rooms prior to 3pm.

Central location. Pleasant staff. Good breakfast. Clean. I did however have a room towards the inner court and breakfastlounge, just one story up, which made me feel a bit exposed and prone to draw the heavy curtains, feeling quite "locked in" while at the hotell. I therefore also felt that the room was too priecey. Not the best "in-hotell-room" feeling... More
