Ellingsens Pensjonat B&B is four or five tram spots from the central train station and easy walking distance to the waterfront, Royal Palace gardens, Vigeland gardens and lots of museums. It appeared to us to be in a residential area with lovely 3 storey homes and strips of fashionable shops and restaurants/pubs/bars. Room 205 included a balcony with table and... More

I found this to be a really clean hotel with stylish rooms with an excellent location. It's close to a few different tram lines and a major metro station yet still walking distance from the city centre. The breakfast was good but the WiFi was patchy at times.

Thank you for a wonderful stay while I was in Oslo this weekend! This was a fab base for me as I explored Oslo with friends staying elsewhere. It was a great place to get around the city easily. The staff went above and beyond to help me before I arrived, offering advice on how to get there from Rygge... More

Room was comfortable on second floor overlooking the garden. Beware the somewhat narrow stairs with heavy bags! Breakfast was plentiful and continually replenished. Reception was helpful and arrangements for keys for late arrival were simple. There is a tram stop 100m away but it is only 15 minutes walk to the centre and to the statue park in the other... More

The location is great - we walked everywhere. The breakfast includes fresh fruit, several breads, boiled eggs, cold cuts, and cheeses. No personal touch anywhere - the receptionist didn't get out from behind her counter, the breakfast person didn't talk...not what I expect from a B&B. On the other hand, no help with the luggage, so it's not a hotel... More

It's such a shame that my favorite accommodation was the place I only stayed one night. I arrived to Oslo early in the day and dropped my bag off at the front desk. The man at the front desk (white hair and glasses, I'm ashamed I can't remember his name!) was very pleasant and spoke beautiful English. When I checked... More

This is hands down one of the nicest place we stayed in. I think it has to with the great location, wonderful decor and helpful and friendly hosts.I had the best sleep here. The shared bathrooms are very clean and in general the place is spotless.

We had three different rooms, a basement studio my husband and I shared for 5 days, a second floor single for my daughter, who had to move into a basement single after 2 days because we added on her reservation with short notice. They were very helpful in accommodating our changing needs and pleasant to deal with, although reception closes... More

Stayed two nights at the start of our two-week trip to Norway. Reception was warm, welcoming, kind and helpful (let us check in as soon as our room was ready--always a huge plus when fighting jet lag). Bed was quite comfortable with light and fluffy Euro-style duvets. The breakfast buffet was very good and at the family style table we... More

Lovely breakfast. Clean cosy small room. Guests can make tea/coffee in the kitchen for free. Good deal for expensive Oslo. Fridge and kettle in the room. Friendly staff. Homey atmosphere. Good public transport connections.
