3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My room was extremely small. There wasn't even a closet! I was surprised because it was expensive and I attributed this to how expensive Norway is. However, there were a number of small problems and one big one. This hotel is near a concert venue and the hotel filled with rowdy drunk teens attending a Bieber concert. As a business... More

The hotel is not centrally located but has a tram stop and bus stop nearby. It is located near several restaurants and shops. I really liked the area even though it was a bit further from the city center. The hotel itself was nice but the room lacked a bit of charm, they set us up in a room with... More

Friendly service, funky decor and a great nights sleep. Hotel is close to the train station only 1 or 2 stops from central Oslo. Breakfast was really nice, plenty of choice, fresh fruit, breads and cooked food. Shopping and restaurants close by.

Modern hotel in good location, but on the date I stayed, the air-con was not working, which led to a sleepless night - normal thing, too hot with window closed, too noisy with it open. Should have realised there was an issue when all the windows in the bar/restaurant were open.

Dear Steve H Thank you so much for your feedback and for staying with us. We did experience some problems with the central cooling system this date and it took some time to fix this problem. So sorry that this led to a less comfortable stay. I do hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back despite this... More

I've no complaints. The rooms are clean and well appointed for a budget hotel. Staff were very friendly, the beds dead comfy and breakfast was great. It's very close to the waterfront and several good restaurants. Skoyen train station is just around the corner and just four stops from the airport. This is a great place to stay if in... More

Hotel sits in a commercial area just west of the city centre. The location is well connected with bus, tram and train services within easy walking distance. Hotel staff is very friendly. Room was fairly clean, but not quite what you'd expect from a business hotel. Did let the reception know and the person on duty said they would provide... More
