The hotel location is great very central and just across the central train station. The staff is young and polite, helpful and nice. The problem for me is the room! The room size is just bigger than a box, the double bed is the smallest I have seen and the design furniture and the bath is very spartan even for...

We stayed at the Byporten as a last minute Easter break. The hotel is very centrally located, adjoining the central train station in Oslo. Everything we wanted was close by, all attractions were at most a 15 min walk from the hotel The rooms were fairly basic, but of a very good standard for the price paid. Breakfast was very...

The hotel is located just next to the central train station so it's very easy to get to it from the airport. Room might be a bit small but clean and nicely designed. Staff is very friendly and the hotel bar is a nice place to spend a few hours as well.

The hotel is in a great location, clean with all the necessary services for a business trip. The staff was very friendly and service oriented. Therefore I would openly recommend it to whoever wants a centrally located hotel.

Perfect location - Central, right next to the train station for easy airport access. Staff were incredible and very accommodating, allowing us a (very) late check out. Rooms are lovely and warm with very comfortable beds.

A bit chaotic in the reception area as well as outside. Thee is not much space to stop and go into the reception. A bit chaotic in the breakfast area, in a nearby restaurant) too. Not really clean, and I think there were not enough staff there to be able to re-fill everything that ran out. Other staff very friendly....

This is a good hotel with nice rooms in a superb location. We felt welcome from the minute we walked in, there's something warm about this hotel though I can't put my finger on it.
